Lesson 1: Preparing your environment

You must prepare your development environment before you can define builds using Ant with Enterprise Extensions.

About this task

This lesson assumes that you have performed the following tasks:


  1. Prepared a Jazz® Team Server. See the Installation overview for information about installing and configuring the Jazz Team Server.
  2. Created a project area.
  3. Created a user to perform the builds. Edit the user profile and verify that it has the IBM® Engineering Workflow Management ( - Developer for IBM Enterprise Platforms Client Access License (CAL).
  4. Modified the process configuration so you can save data set definitions, language definitions, and translators.
    Note: Specifically, you might need to update your permissions so you can save build definitions and build results, and also deliver source code.
  5. Installed and configured the Engineering Workflow Management Eclipse client. The client should have a repository connection defined for your Jazz Team Server, and it should be connected to your project area.
  6. The Jazz Build System should be installed on the z/OS® system that performs builds.
  7. The Rational® Build Agent should be installed and configured on the z/OS system that performs builds.

What to do next

  1. The Rational Build Agent initializes with a shell script that is described later in this tutorial.
  2. This tutorial does not depend on Job Monitor.
