BMC AMI DevX Code Pipeline (ISPW) 22.x: Fundamentals Developing in Workbench for Eclipse (WBT)

BMC AMI DevX Code Pipeline is a modern mainframe Software Change Management tool. With BMC AMI DevX Code Pipeline, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that you can quickly and safely change, build, test, and deploy mainframe code.

As a Code Pipeline Developer, you will use Workbench for Eclipse to quickly adapt mainframe applications and use different perspectives and views present in Workbench for Eclipse to improve the quality, speed, and efficiency of mainframe software development.

This interactive WBT describes the concepts of BMC AMI DevX Code Pipeline - Workbench for Eclipse. Students will develop skills in product development and effective use of Code Pipeline perspectives to ensure quality and efficiency in application development. In addition, they will learn to analyze errors, resolve basic errors and escalate critical errors to Administrators.
