Hi

Im going to be working on a visual studio 2010 C# silverlight 4 project for my company and we will be using TFS 2010, but i wanted to know about how TFS does the deployment i.e. the actual steps taken to do accomplish it and what i need to know. We are going to be setting up just a test run of a dummy project so that we are prepared for when the real projects gets deployed and that we have had good practice.

Appreciate any feedback.

Thanks

Thanks for the link but this just shows set up and configuration how does it actually deploy full project inc SL WCF's etc onto a QA or prod environment? And when deploying how does tfs know of IIS setup of the env the project is going to?

When ive published a SL app to a server i had the server credentials and url of where it is getting deployed to, then when i look in IIS of that server i see all the files of project but just unsure how tfs builds and deploy.

Team Foundation Server is for source control and team development.  I don't know if it is going to help you with deploying Silverlight applications or WCF services..

TFS setup documentation:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb668966.aspx

Silverlight deployment is not much different than ASP.NET deployment.. Publish it, verify your configuration in IIS (.net installation, http handlers, app pool settings, mime type registrations etc...), make sure that you have your client access policy on any web services.

Thanks vbingham thats what i wanted to hear i thought TFS done the actual deployment.

So when i have a build(no errors) and someone wants to see a demo, how do we take that particular builld from TFS and let other developers continue working? do i just take a copy of the project from the file structure for getting on to test server?
