Parallel Install anywhere ant task

Hi

We have around 200 different drivers for which we need to build install anywhere installers?

At present we are using ant install anywhere installer task to build installer in sequence for all 200 drivers.

This takes 24 hours to complete.

However if we can run the installer creation process in loop this will take lot less time.

Hence could you please let me know if Install anywhere installer ant task supports running in parallel ?

<parallel>
<buildinstaller IAProjectFile="Master.iap2_xml" IALocation="${ia.dir}" BuildOutputLocation="Output" />
<buildinstaller IAProjectFile="Master.iap1_xml" IALocation="${ia.dir}" BuildOutputLocation="Output" />
<buildinstaller IAProjectFile="Master.iap4_xml" IALocation="${ia.dir}" BuildOutputLocation="Output" />
<buildinstaller IAProjectFile="Master.iap3_xml" IALocation="${ia.dir}" BuildOutputLocation="Output" />
</parallel>

Hi @kpramesh2212,

Thank you for your patience.

You should be able to perform parallel / concurrent builds simultaneously using InstallAnywhere. A best practice is to specify a different working directory for each build process using the ANT task BuildWorkdirLocation parameter as described in the documentation here:

If you experience any issues, please let us know.

Thanks,

Ian
