IBM UrbanCode Build 6.1.5 continues to deliver a template-driven system to configure and run builds.

Agent support for IBM z/OS

UrbanCode Build 6.1.5 agents can be installed in IBM z/OS machines to provide the capability to build on mainframe.

Integrate with UrbanCode Velocity

With the new UrbanCode Velocity integration, build information and metrics data can be uploaded to UrbanCode Velocity.

Integrate with Salesforce

Perform file-based deployment of metadata changes and Apex classes to Salesforce servers.

Enhanced UrbanCode Deploy integration

UrbanCode Build can now create, use, and delete user auth tokens in UrbanCode Deploy to offer better traceability when integrating these two products. Additionally, UrbanCode Build can now optionally wait on the result of deployments that have been launched, before carrying on with the rest of the build steps.

Plan & Prepare

For supported platforms and requirements, see the reports that can be dynamically generated using the Software Product Compatibility Reports (SPCR) tool.

Note: Some supported plug-ins have system requirements that vary from the core product. Information on system requirements for individual plug-ins is available on the download page for that plug-in.

To get started quickly, IBM UrbanCode Build is shipped with an Apache Derby database. Apache Derby is not supported for production environments. As you plan your production topology, review the product documentation.
