OpenMake Meister 7.2 Takes Advantage of Microsoft Technology to Streamline Continuous Integration Builds

Meister streamlines the continuous integration build process for Microsoft-based developers by using Microsoft Team Foundation S

SAN FRANCISCO, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenMake Software, a leading provider of build to release management solutions, today announced new features of its Meister 7.2 product that will enhance the continuous integration process for Microsoft-based developers. OpenMake Meister 7.2, to be released in the second quarter of 2008, includes the ability to mashup the individual developer's Microsoft Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) build with the continuous integration build running on Team Foundation Server.

This mashup feature allows developers working with various versions of Visual Studio, including Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, or multiple Visual Studio solutions to automatically integrate the builds executed outside the Visual Studio IDE running on Team Foundation Server. When a check-in occurs, this mashup process helps prevent builds from breaking when a developer makes changes to the source code that impacts the builds such as refactoring, deleting or adding libraries, changing compile options, updating dependencies, using a different version of a 3rd party library, or adding resource files.

"Microsoft-based developers often have the need to execute builds that rely on different versions of the Microsoft compiler as well as execute builds that use multiple Solution files," explains Steve Taylor, CTO, OpenMake Software. "Meister 7.2 controls the application assembly process at the build engine level leveraging MSBuild, DevEnv, Nant, Ant and Nmake to support deeply integrated cross-language and cross-platform software applications."

By working at the build engine level, Meister automatically re-generates the continuous integration build scripts based on the Visual Studio IDE project data. This re-generation keeps the continuous integration build running on Team Foundation Server in sync with the build performed inside of the Visual Studio IDE thus substantially minimizing broken continuous integration builds.

"OpenMake Meister fills a much requested feature by developers who use Team Foundation Server as their application lifecycle management solution and want to target multiple platforms from a single build definition," said Kevin Kelly, Senior Product Manager for Visual Studio Team System at Microsoft Corp. "This version of Meister also makes it convenient to organize a single build for components built from earlier versions of the Visual Studio compilers without having to rewrite the legacy build definitions."

Meister 7.2 integrates with Team Foundation Server by exposing the Team Foundation Server item history for all objects used during the build and automatically logs the Meister build results to the Team Foundation Server Team Build. It also supports integrating Java objects such as .jars, .wars and .ears into the Visual Studio build supporting cross language environments. This cross-language support simplifies the complexities of enterprise builds where applications written in both Eclipse, IBM-RAD and Microsoft Visual Studio share data and dependencies and must be built together as a complete application.

About OpenMake Software

OpenMake Software has been an innovator of build and release management solutions for global 2000 organizations since 1995. By managing more build engines, such as MSBuild and Ant, OpenMake Software represents the natural virtualization of the application build process derived directly from popular IDEs such as Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse. Putting workflow on top of chaos does not solve the build problems. OpenMake Software provides free workflow management with Mojo, but addresses the entire build management challenge with Meister.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
