The WebSphere Commerce Build and Deploy tool (WCBD) supports three main processes:
  1. Builds
  2. Server deployment
  3. Toolkit development

Best practices

  • Use a Software Configuration Management (SCM) to store the customized assets
  • Store build and deployment scripts in a SCM
  • Only check in customized application assets to SCM
  • Delta SCM extract can help to shorten the build time
  • Use delta deployment when a small set of files is updated.
