CruiseControl.Net

2006-04-26 12:07:10 by Kjell-Åke Gafvelin

We have started using CruiseControl.Net in my current project at work and I have to say I really like the idea of continious integration. I took a while to figure out how to set it up to get the latest version of the source files from Visual SourceSafe and to build it using MSBuild, but finally I got it working.

At the moment I'm still using the solution file when building, but I will soon try to figure out how to create a custom MSBuild file which is referencing the .csproj files that I want to build.

I have also installed AssemblyInfoTask for MSBuild to generate custom build numbers. The build numbers are then genereated in CruiseControl.Net using the date labeller. This generates a build number in the format yyyy.mm.dd.build although I would have preferred major.minor.yymmdd.build, but I will check later if I can figure out a way to do this.
