Manage builds with the Engineering Workflow Management Build

This tutorial is a series of lessons in movie format that demonstrate how to build with the IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) Build, which provides a model for representing a team's build definitions, build engines, and build results.

Jazz includes the Jazz® Build Engine and an Ant build toolkit that can publish build information to the Jazz repository. The build toolkit is best suited for Ant builds, but any scripting technology that can invoke Ant can be used. For example, a team can use Perl or Make to create build scripts that interact with the EWM Build.

Note: You can only create and edit build definitions and build engines in the Eclipse client interface.
