I’d like to report that IBM is now distributing its software development kit (SDK) for Node.js¬†running on mainframes. Node.js is a server-side JavaScript application environment that’s gaining some popularity. Node.js is a trademark of Joyent.

IBM is offering its Node.js SDK for download at no charge. Priced support is optional and available from IBM if you want or need it.

You could (and still can) download, build (if necessary), and run any open source software projects you like on your mainframe, so Node.js on mainframes isn’t necessarily new. What is new is IBM’s distribution¬†and the fact IBM puts some energy into testing and optimizing Node.js on mainframes.

Enjoy.
