Fancy a build and deploy manager for BizTalk which uses BTDF in the background?
We use BTDF for building the BizTalk projects and most people now would have used TFS to do continuous integration which can utilize BTDF do build and deploy the projects.
However this is perfectly fine for automating the continuous integration process. When BizTalk projects has to be moved from development to test and production environments, manual installation steps are followed by deployment teams. For companies having a large number of projects and having the headache of following with the deployment team for the list of projects and release notes is inevitable. It sometimes require people from the dev team to sit with the deployment team to deploy the BizTalk applications.
I have developed a tool to assist with this issue. I have just started off with that tool. I will be constantly updating this tool to make it more generic.
Ideally this tool can be used by a build and release manager who can prepare the BizTalk MSI and deploy the applications in the respective environment without any BizTalk or BTDF knowledge
I have uploaded the project in codeplex. Its open source. So if you have any thoughts, pls share … firstname.lastname@example.org
