Using the Build Toolkit plug-in

z/OS® Connect provides a Build Toolkit (zconbt) for creating service archive (SAR) files. SAR files are used during z/OS Connect API creation to associate APIs with service providers such as Z Data Tools Service Provider.

The z/OS Connect EE Build Toolkit is bundled with the z/OS Connect host product. It provides a command line tool, zconbt, that runs in Windows, Linux, and z/OS environments.

Documentation for the toolkit is provided in IBM® Knowledge Center. Installation of the Z Data Tools Build Toolkit plug-in for use with zconbt is described in the Z Data Tools Customization Guide.
