RTC Build System Toolkit


sandip raikar (1161813) | asked Oct 05 '10, 6:20 a.m.
Hi,

We have a couple of questions on the RTC Build System Toolkit:

1. Can we install the Jazz build system toolkit on the RTC server itself so that it will always keep on running and we can place our Build Requests from the RTC eclipse client without restarting the JBE every time from the command prompt.

Secondly, To run the RTC Jazz Build Engine, we need to run the necessary commands on the command prompt. We would like to know whether we can run the build system toolkit from within the RTC client itself, instead of from the command prompt.

Thanks,
Sandip.

Yes, you would usually install the Jazz Build Engine (JBE) on another server - not your desktop. This can be the RTC server or somewhere else.

I am not aware of any way to run the JBE from the RTC client - this is normally run from the commandline. You should really run this on another machine as discussed above.

Note that the downside of running the JBE on the RTC server machine is
that a compute-intensive build could steal cycles from the RTC server.
So ideally, you'd find some other machine to run the JBE processes on.

Cheers,
