AIX on the mainframe had little success and UNIX functionality was instead added as an option with the existing mainframe operating system, MVS, which became MVS/ESA OpenEdition in 1993.
These systems were more or less based on the Macintosh hardware available at the time but were designed to use AIX as their native operating system.
AIX version 1 was developed by IBM in conjunction with INTERACTIVE Systems Corporation, and was based in part on PC/IX, an operating system from Interactive Systems that ran on IBM/PC and compatible systems.

 Troubleshooting Java on AIX: Data collection for AIX core dumps
As discussed in Javacore versus AIX core section, Javacore files are not always the best tool for debugging a hang situation.
To get a good AIX core file, the JVM has to be set up so it does not create the Javacore when it receives a signal that is sent to the process.
The issue could be the operating system (kernel/library), the JVM (or JIT), application Java Native Interface (JNI) native code, or third-party JNI code.
