Build Automation

  • Architect / Developer Studio / AppBuilder ARE NOT build tools
  • Just after checking out source code, a single command line should be enough to generate a standalone binary
  • Common build tools are : Makefiles, shell scripts, Ant, Maven, Gradle…
  • Looking for something stable, flexible and portable across platforms? Use Ant !
  • Ant is an open-source product to deal with software builds
  • XML based syntax, and provides lots of standard tasks
  • PCT (Progress Compilation Toolkit) is an opensource extension to deal with the OpenEdge environment
