Build templates available for z/OS

Builds for z/OS® have different setup requirements than typical Engineering Workflow Management Builds.

The z/OS build definition templates listed do not include templates for the Engineering Workflow Management Build. For more information about the templates for Engineering Workflow Management Build, see Creating build definitions.

The following build definition templates require the Developer for IBM® Enterprise Platforms CAL:
  • Use the Ant with Enterprise Extensions - Rational Build Agent template to build all items using Apache Ant with extensions for z/OS. This template is compatible with the Ant build template extended for z/OS available in previous versions of the product. (Requires Developer for IBM Enterprise Platforms CAL.)
  • Use the z/OS Dependency Build - Rational Build Agent template to build only those items that have changed or depend on changes since the last successful team build.
The following build definition templates do not require the Developer for IBM Enterprise Platforms CAL:
  • Use the Command Line - Jazz Build Engine template with the Jazz Build Engine running on z/OS to run the same types of builds on z/OS that are supported on other platforms, such as Windows or Linux; for example, you can build your Java™ applications in z/OS HFS using the Jazz Build Engine and Apache Ant.
  • Use the Command Line - Rational Build Agent template to submit JCL using Job Monitor. You can also use it to run z/OS UNIX commands, shell scripts, or REXX commands.
