AX & TeamCity Automation :: Community Download on Codeplex

Hi everyone!

It is with great pleasure that I'd like to announce the initial release of the AX & TeamCity build automation and deployment solutions is available on CodePlex today!

What the solutions include:

Continuous Deployment with AX2012 and TeamCity (part 3)

This is the last installment in our AX Build Automation series.  In part 1, we discussed how to install a continuous deployment software suite, in part 2 we discussed the classes we had to modify to harness the Startup Commands to prepare a modelstore, and finally today we will demonstrate how to automate it all together.

Continuous Deployment with AX2012 and TeamCity (part 2)

Continuous Deployment with AX is a two part gig.  First you need a building software like Microsoft's Release Management or JetBrain's Team City ( covered in part 1 ).  Second, you need to be able to call all of the building activities within AX itself such as synchronizing with Version Control, x++ compile, CIL compile, and so on.  This is what we will cover today, and will follow up with how to automate the entire process ( part 3 ).

Whether you work in a shop where you are the “AX guru” or if you are a part of a team of rockstars, consultants, or VARs combined: the rate at which you can test and deploy customizations heavily impacts your promised Turn-Around-Time to the business.  The more developers you have contributing work, the more complex it can become. Having an organized and automated building process for AX is essential to any dev shop.
