    This is a forward looking statement. This is subject to change at any time without notice.  The development, release and timing remain at Broadcom's sole discretion.


    I'd like to share our certification plans for 2021. I will update this thread if changes occur. 


    Here is what we anticipate completing in 2021:

    1. We are upgrading the compilers used when we build CA Gen HE, z/OS IT, COBOL Generators and z/OS Runtimes to PL/I 5.2, COBOL 6.2 and C/C++ 2.2. We are also upgrading Db2 to Db2 V12.  We are not changing the Support of 3rd party products certified for Gen applications.
    2. Certify IBM WebSphere MQ v9.2
    3. Certify OpenJDK 8 and 11
    4. IBM WebSphere Application Server 9.0.5
    5. Oracle WebLogic Server 14c
    6. Certify Microsoft Host Integration Server 2020
    7. Certify IBM Communication Server for Windows


    Your feedback helps determine our priorities, so let us know how this news affects you. If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this discussion or email me at Kim.Peelman@broadcom.com

    An update:

    • Regarding #1 upgrading compilers: We have published the update for HE and z/OS IT. We're continuing our work for z/OS Runtimes.
    • Regarding #2 MQ v9.2: This testing is complete and Tech Docs has been updated (here) . You'll notice our documentation now says "IBM WebSphere MQ v9.1, v9.2 (and subsequent 9.x minor versions)" We have been evaluating which vendors have policies of making non-breaking changes in minor releases. For those, we can support subsequent minor releases without additional certification testing. This will enable you to adopt the latest versions of software while still receiving full support from Gen.
