Enterprise Extensions builds
Enterprise Extensions builds typically run on Enterprise platforms like IBM® i and z/OS®. Some of these build types and tasks require a Developer for IBM Enterprise Platforms client access license (CAL).
Enterprise Extensions builds include additional configuration options that use the Rational® Build Agent and Jazz® Build Engines. You can define your builds using system definition templates designed for IBM i and z/OS. These Enterprise Extensions system definitions capture and maintain several pieces of supporting build information that you can specify all at once, and then use continuously when you or your teammates build. For more information about these system definitions, see Enterprise Extensions system definitions.
Use the Developer for IBM Enterprise Platforms CAL to set up Enterprise Extensions dependency builds. These builds save time and resources by only building artifacts that have changed since the last successful build.
- Improve the performance of the dependency builds on IBM Z® Systems Development and Test Environment (ZD&T), as it is explained in Improving z/OS dependency build performance.
- Extend the Enterprise Extensions z/OS builds. You can use Groovy, as it is explained in Developing DBB scripts on z/OS, in the DBB Knowledge Center. You can also use the DBB APIs, as it is explained in the DBB API reference.
