Continuous Integration (CI):
Building a strategy for IBM i using Git, Jenkins and JIRA
How can traditional IBM i development languages, like RPG, CL, DDS or even COBOL, be integrated into the process used by other development teams using modern open source tools like Jenkins, Git and JIRA? Learn how to bring these typically disparate teams into sync, using the same tools and delivering changes together.
We’ll take you through each phase of the DevOps cycle and see how to accomplish this integration and what the challenges are, using open source tools across both IBM i and distributed systems. In particular, we’ll demonstrate how you can automate the most complex tasks like the dependency recompile (build) of specific IBM i technologies, such as ILE and DB2 SQL. We’ll also explore DIY techniques like Web services for accessing APIs to leverage existing tools and the resources you already have.
