The IBM UrbanCode Deploy automation plug-in works with Informatica Version 9.6 and later.
This plug-in requires version 6.1.1 or later of IBM UrbanCode Deploy.


The packaged zip is located in the dist folder. No special steps are required for installation.
See Installing plug-ins in UrbanCode Deploy. Download this zip file if you wish to skip the
manual build step. Otherwise, download the entire Information-UCD and
run the "ant" command in the top level folder. This should compile the code and create
a new distributable zip within the dist folder. Use this command if you wish to make
your own changes to the plugin.
