Chapter 27. Examples for Applications

This chapter is intended to give you an impression of the wide spectrum of software that is available for Linux on the mainframe today. Because there is already a large number of available program packages and new ones are becoming available frequently, we do not attempt to provide a comprehensive list, but restrict ourselves to listing some examples that we think you might find useful.

In Table 27-1, we have sorted the examples into the following broad categories:

  • File and print serving

  • Mail serving

  • Application platforms

  • Web serving

  • Database services

  • Connectors

  • Systems management

  • Messaging

  • ERP
