Build System Toolkit#
Each build computer contains an installation of the Rational® Team Concert™ Build System Toolkit.
The Build System Toolkit consists of the following major components:
Jazz™ Build Engine
The Jazz™ Build Engine is a command-line tool that polls for and processes build requests from Rational® Team Concert™. When the Jazz™ Build Engine is started, it must identify a corresponding build engine in Rational® Team Concert™. TheJazz™ Build Engine can then accept any build request whose build definition is supported by the build engine. The Jazz™ Build Engine runs the Ant script and targets that are specified in the build definition. Each build is represented in Rational® Team Concert™ by a build result.
The build toolkit is a collection of Ant tasks. Ant scripts can use these tasks to send information (such as build progress, results, links, artifacts) to Rational® Team Concert™ to include in the build result.
The build agent is a lightweight process that handles agent-based builds that support z/OS® or HCL® i build scenarios. For the IBM® MobileFirst Platform Foundation (Worklight®) plug-in, use the Jazz™ Build Engine instead.
Note: The Jazz™ Build Engine is a component of the Build System Toolkit; it refers to the process that runs on a build computer and runs Ant scripts.
