Building mobile applications#
To set up a continuous integration and delivery cycle for your mobile applications, you must build the mobile application artifacts before you deploy them to the IBM® MobileFirst Platform Foundation Server. TheRational® solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management, MobileFirst Platform Foundation, and UrbanCode™ Deploy products integrate to help automate the build and deployment of mobile applications.
TheRational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management contains the IBM Rational Team Concert™ product that is delivered as an application together with aJazz™ Team Server. Rational Team Concert™ and the Build System Toolkit work together to build your mobile applications. When Rational Team Concert™ is installed on the Jazz™ Team Server, it manages the workspaces, projects, source files, and builds of your mobile applications. The Build System Toolkit runs the actual build tasks.
- Build computer resources
Before you run a mobile application build script on a build computer, you must ensure that the required resources exist on the build computer.
- Build scripts
You can create Ant build scripts for MobileFirst Platform Foundation projects that contain applications and adapters. By using these build scripts, you can automate your mobile application builds.
- Rational Team Concert Build
The Rational Team Concert™ Build system defines resources that are used to describe and manage builds.
