No - it needs to be ported.
Minimally you'll need to account for the little-endian to big-endian change, not to mention potential EBCDIC <-> ASCII entanglements depending on what the code does.

Thanks syg00 for your response.
Actually I dont have the code but a binary setup file, if I had code I might had compiled and installed it in s390x arch. So is there any emulation kind of concept/technology available using which this can be done.

Just out of interest. Whats the underlying OS on which the binary was built?

I thought there was a version of QEMU that would run on the s390x that would emulate the x86-64 architecture.


In any case, a number of distributions have a port to the s390 (Fedora, Suse, Slackware, Red Hat, CentOS...

So you should be able find the corresponding application package.

Qemu does run on the s390, so you should be able to run nearly anything you want.
