Tailor a LOB app for different customers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Say I have a LOB app that is identical for each customer, except for the splash screen and the content of a config file that contains a server URL.

    Any ideas for a workflow/project layout and on how to build the different versions for each customer?

    Is there some kind of resource bundle that could be installed alongside the app (much like language bundles) that could contain the specific data for a vendor?

  • No. You'll need to build separate packages for your customers.

    I'd probably try to put as much code into shareable libraries as possible. You could also share code between projects for the different customers by linking the source code.

    You may be build everything off of a single source tree by copying the customer-specific files and manifest (to get the right AppId) as a pre-build step, but I haven't tried that.
