Where to perform WebSphere Application Server operations

Administer WebSphere Application Server involves the use of both the MVS™ console and the WAS administrative console.

For example:

The following table lists the main Application Server operations tasks and directs you to information that helps you to perform these tasks. The Application Server activities and operations can be performed from:

TSO/ISPF resource recovery services (RRS) panels can be used to display units of work for RRS, and units of work for CICS . See z/OS MVS Programming: Resource Recovery at http://www.elink.ibmlink.ibm.com/public/applications/publications/cgibin/pbi.cgi for more information about using RRS panels.
