Installing and configuring DBB

IBM Dependency Based Build is made up of the following components:

You must install both the DBB toolkit and the DBB server, in any order you prefer, to perform a full verification. For more information, see Installing and configuring the DBB toolkit on z/OS and Installing and configuring the DBB server. To upgrade the DBB server from a previous release, see Migrating the DBB server.

To use DBB with Git, install Git from Rocket Software to handle the conversion between ASCII and EBCDIC character encodings. For how to install Git, see Prerequisites and Setting up Git on USS. For more information about Rocket Software Open Source Languages and Tools for z/OS, including Git and its prerequisites, see z/OS Open Source Tools | Rocket Software.

For how to install samples, see Installing and configuring samples.

In addition to being a stand-alone product, DBB is also available as a component of multiple products. The DBB toolkit is included in IBM Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition and IBM Wazi Developer for Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces.
