Build scripts

Build scripts let you specify which drivers and applications to start, and in what order.

Every board has a different set of build scripts to support different configurations. You can use these build scripts to set the sequence in which services and utilities are launched after system startup.

As well as carefully setting the launch sequence, you should limit what the build script does because:

Starting with QNX SDP 7.0, some QNX products, such as QNX CAR and ADAS, use the mksysimage utility script to assemble QNX target images as specified by combinations of small build scripts. These small build scripts are specified in filesets, which are in turn specified in profile and configuration files. For more information about these files, filesets, and the image build infrastructure, see the Working with Target Images guide for your product.
