We have a client running an application under ObjectStar v5.2 on the
mainframe accessing IDMS R17.1 database (this will shortly be upgraded to R19.0).
Tibco (the Objectstar vendor) have announced the following end of support dates
for the product;


End-of-Life for Object Service Broker products and related gateways;

  • for v5.2 - October 31, 2014
  • for v6.0 - December 31, 2015


We believe ObjectStar v6 is compatible
with z/OS 2.1 which will be supported for the next 8 years or so.

We plan to upgrade from z/OS 1.13 to z/OS 2. Would ObjectStar v5 work  z/OS 2.1 . Is there anyone running any version
of ObjectStar under z/OS 2.1?
