Supported Third-Party Build Tools

CloudBees Accelerator supports the following third-party build tools.

  • GNU Make 3.79.1, 3.80, 3.81, and 3.82

  • Microsoft NMAKE 7.x and 8.x

  • SCons

  • Symbian Make (Windows)

  • Visual Studio: .NET 2002, .NET 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2013

    The installer for Accelerator automatically installs the CloudBees Accelerator Visual Studio Integration, which lets you build Visual Studio solutions and projects using eMake from within the IDE. For information about using this integration, see the Visual Studio Integration Guide.

Accelerator can support Visual Studio 6 workspaces if they are exported to NMAKE files. However, every time something changes in the workspace, an export must be done again.
  • Rational ClearCase 7.1.1, 7.1.2, and 8.0 (exceptions detailed below)

ClearCase versions 7.1.2.9 and 8.0.0.5 contained a known missing lib issue. IBM fixed this issue in ClearCase versions 7.1.2.10 and 8.0.0.6 or 8.0.0.7. CloudBees recommends using one of those ClearCase versions with Accelerator.

Accelerator supports building within ClearCase dynamic views and provides the Ledger feature, which can track files that change as a result of a change to the view’s configuration specification.

This version of Accelerator in GNU Make 3.81 emulation mode was tested against the following ClearCase environment:
