Mike Azocar So long and thanks for all the Fish!
This is the first of a series of posts that will hopefully unravel the beast that is Team Build.á The first thing that you should know about Team Build is what it actually is.á Team Build is a MS Build project file that containsáa set ofáTasks that hook into Team Foundation Server and a set of MS Build Targets that define the Team Build process.á When a new Team Build Type is created within Team Explorer, a new MS Build project fileáthat references the Team Build project file is created and added to Version Control.á This Build Type project file also containsáall of the arguments specified inátheáTeam Build creation wizard.? Mostábuild processes are fairly complicated and specific to an organization.á Microsoft hasáplanned for this within Team Build by creating a set of Targets that are called within the build process, that do not have any Tasks inside of them.á For each step in the process there is a Target that is fired before and afteráthe Targetáis executed. This allows you to add your own actions to almost any point in the build process. Next, we will take a look at the build process to better understand how Team Build does its magic. Happy Coding!
