Rational Team Concert (RTC) and Build Tool

    As a CA Gen shop, we are moving from IBM ClearCase to Rational Team Concert (RTC) for our TIER II transmittals (i.e., GUI code).
    Are there any current white papers or best practices to follow in staging our Load Modules into RTC SCM?
    Also, is there currently a solution in setting up and utilizing the RTC Build Engine to generate CA Gen windows (i.e., EXEs and DLLs)?
    The obvious solution is to utilize the CA Gen build tool to generate the code and simply move the Load Modules into the RTC SCM; however, using the RTC build engine follows the recommended path and versioning requirements.

    Hi Patrick,
    There is no Gen white paper or solutions I am aware of for integration with Rational Team Concert SCM.
    Broadcom partner Information Engineering Technology (IET) have a Gen Change Management product GuardIEn which interfaces with CA Endevor and CA Harvest SCMs. @Darius Panahy or @GARY DONOGHUE from IET might be able to provide some general advice in that area.

    Regards,

    Lynn

    Patrick,

    I'm not familiar with RTC, but can't you take the approach I've described in my post "Using Jenkins with CA Gen"? (Simply invoke the CA Gen Build tool CLI)..

    Regards

    Lynn, thanks for the integration with Jenkins approach. Jenkins is one of our supported CI/CD open source automation server-based systems. This information shall give me wide variety of options to explore.
