Delphi 7 & Auto build
Posted on 2010-11-15
Is there a way to configure a server machine to do Auto builds using delphi 7?
Where one does not have to bring up a copy of delphi 7 and go through the motions in the IDE to do the build.
We have an application which requires many thirdparty components, classes, etc. We have our system set up to do the builds through the IDE currently.
When ever we do core code changes (whch is most of the time) to the app that does not require changes to any thirdparty components or libraries, we would like an auto build to occur at a scheduled time (every evening).
Users would be promoting code up to the location and the build would happen automatically.
Is this possible? How? What are the pros/cons? What should be the concerns?
