Biztalk project not building in TFS Build RRS feed

  • Question

  • All,

    In our tfs project build definition we have configured csproject and biztalk project.

    Most of the c sharp project configured as project in the solution to Build. We have also configured Biztalk solution which contains some c sharp project and rest of the biztalk project like schemas, pipe lines etc.

    In our build step we have seen only the csharp project present in the Biztalk solution. The biztalk projects are not even taken into consideration of build steps so no failure so we thought so far it successfully runs.

    Please advice is we missing any thing obvious to build biztalk project in the Tfs build.

    Cheers
    Raj.

  • BizTalk projects are not MSBuild based and therefore cant be built 'directly' in Team Build. You will need to shell out to devenv or use a devenv task.

    DevEnv Task http://blogs.msdn.com/aaronhallberg/archive/2007/07/12/team-build-devenv-task.aspx
    Note, the DevEnv task above is now included in the MSBuild Extension Pack. You will have to compile the code yourself for now or wait for the next compiled release.

    Or if you are stuck in TFS 2005 land, try a manual shell out or use the SDC task.
