How to create Build Definition via SDK API?

Jia Jia Li (8058157192) | asked May 31 '12, 3:39 a.m.
I need to batch set the i project mapping for IBM i build definition via API.

Can any one provide the sample of create build definition.

I read the source code of create build definition wizard, it needs build template, if I create via API, does the template needed?

I got the cause, since the processAreaHandle is null in my code.
If set the para right, the definition created correctly.

I find the following code in SDK test jar, but run with expection, any one can help?
String templateId = "";
	  private static IBuildDefinition createBuildDefinition(ITeamRepository repo, IProcessAreaHandle processAreaHandle, String templateId, String definitionId) throws Exception {

IBuildDefinition definition = null;
IBuildDefinitionTemplate template = BuildConfigurationRegistry.getInstance().getBuildDefinitionTemplate(templateId);
if (template != null) {
definition = BuildItemFactory.createBuildDefinition();
definition = ClientFactory.getTeamBuildClient(repo).save(definition, new NullProgressMonitor());
return definition;
