Constructing applications and application environments is a core part of IT in many enterprises today. Because the process of building such resources are usually human-driven – and can therefore be time-consuming and error-prone -- users naturally turn to technology to help automate these processes. With many automation products available, choosing one can be daunting. This article looks at a simple integration between IBM® WebSphere® CloudBurst™ and IBM Rational® Build Forge® to fully automate such a process, and thereby provide a rapid and repeatable means for delivering applications and application environments. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
