A long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away), I began this series with the intention of blogging about using Jenkins to orchestrate some tasks on z/OS. I did an introduction to Jenkins and one on groovy pipelines.
In this blog post, we’re going to look at what we need to do to run a Jenkins node on z/OS. It should be noted that this runs as a process in USS, and we’re going to assume that you’re comfortable there. In many ways, this is a regular Posix Unix environment, albeit with extensions to reflect the fact that we’re running as part of z/OS.
