Setting up build job steps in RTC

Hello,

Currently I'm using Buildfroge, which is integrated with RTC. Pretty much all the projects/builds in buildforge are ANT script.

I'm exploring the option of using RTC only for builds and will be using Gradle script. Is there an article on this? I thought of creating a build definition in RTC using "Command Line - Jazz Build Engine" template. If I'm not mistaken, this way I will loose the "Job Steps" feature that is used in Buildforge projects. This is useful because in Buildforge I could see which steps have been successful and what step(s) is/are running at any given time.

Is there anyway I can setup a build in RTC without using Buildforge but have similar "job steps" concept? How is it supposed to work? I'm relatively new to RTC. Haven't found any article on this. Perhaps, this is not the way to do it. Could someone advise?

Thanks,

One answer

RTC's Jave Build Engine (JBE), doesn't really support 'steps'..

you can add callouts DURING your jobs to provide some feedback monitoring (made it to to step 3, then made it to step 4. ...)

there are ant tasks
see https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/index.jsp?re=1&topic=/com.ibm.team.build.doc/topics/r_ant-tasks.html&scope=null
and then see topic  "Enabling progress monitoring"

Thanks Sam for your reply. Is there any other option besides JBE that will support steps?

Also, I'm planning on using Gradle script instead of Ant. I couldn't find any but are there any Gradle build toolkit available?
