Building and testing the components

After you lock the stream and complete any outstanding deliver operations, you are ready to build and test the project executable files to make sure that the changes delivered by developers since the last baseline do not contain any bugs. For information on performing builds, see the Help. Because you lock the stream when you build and test in it, it is better to use a separate development stream for extensive testing of new baselines. Perform only quick validation tests in the current stream so that it is not locked for an extended period of time.
