Building BI projects

I have a build activity that will parse your solution and determine if a project is SSAS, SSIS or SSRS or other and allow you to build with devenv instead of msbuild. I have a sample build process that uses it as an example as well.

Would this be of interest to the TFS build Extensions Project?

Hi Dave

If these activities is not included in TFS build Extensions, are you then interested in release them yourself? I am very interested in using them. Which version of BIDS are they targeting? I have tried to do some simple commandline building using BIDS for VS2012 but I cannot get it to build.

Sorry for the delay, I'm a bit swamped... Dave, we'd be very interested. Could you upload a patch? Are you interested in contributing longer term?

Cheers

Yes I believe I uploaded it months ago. Is it still relevant in light of 2015 changes?

I am just wondering, with the changes to TFS builds coming in 2015, is it work the effort to be adding new build process activities.
