Objective: Connectors are the building blocks to connect different applications on heterogeneous platforms and operating systems. They are the link from mainframe operating systems to open standards. This chapter mainly covers the native IBM z/Virtual Storage Extended (z/VSE) connectors (that is, connectors that are unique to z/VSE).
After completing this chapter, you will be able to provide the following information:
•List the z/VSE connectors and their functionality.
•Describe scenarios where they are used.
