Take a look at my German colleague Kevin Keller’s new blog in Web 2.0 and z/OS. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what runs on z/OS that the rest of the world would regard as modern. 🙂
I say “modern” rather than “Web 2.0” because I feel the latter term is generally overused. What is really to the point is quite how much stuff could (and in many cases should) be implemented on z/OS, e.g. accessing DB2 (especially with the PureXML support in V9).
I’ve suggested to Kevin he might like to write additional posts on some of the products mention in his first mammoth post. I think some of them are going to prove remarkably easy to implement.
