Managing the ReleaseBuilder deployment process for IBM WebSphere Portal

ReleaseBuilder is a tool shipped with IBM WebSphere Portal that lets customers manage and deploy changes in a production environment. This white paper describes a bestpractice process and the steps therein that are required to manage a deployment process that depends on ReleaseBuilder. This process was developed using WebSphere Portal V7 but could easily be adapted to other versions of WebSphere Portal.
