Learn how to set up an IBM Rational Team Concert main build that performs an IBM Rational Developer for System z code review. Based on the result of the code review, the process either submits the build to compile, or stops and reports the code review errors. Apply the tested, documented sample described in this article to implement a similar solution on your own platform. The steps focus on the Rational Team Concert administrator who writes an Ant task to compile COBOL programs, depending on other previous tasks, such as quality control.
Set up a Jazz Build Engine to run an Ant script: Part 1. Setup build definitions- The initial Part 1 article describes the technical and functional context of the scenario, and the Jazz Build Engine configuration.
Set up a Jazz Build Engine to run an Ant script: Part 2. Setup build scripts to perform preview build- In this Part 2 article, we introduce the Ant-based build script, build.xml, that defines tasks for the build to run.
Set up a Jazz Build Engine to run an Ant script: Part 3. Setup build scripts to coordinate code review and build- In the final article, Part 3 describes how to run the RPP synchronize task, how to implement a code review, how to parse, convert, and publish the code review results, and how to run the build.
