what is continuous integration
What is Continuous Integration?
  • “Continuous Integration is a software development practice where members of a team integrate their work frequently, usually each person integrates at least daily - leading to multiple integrations per day. Each integration is verified by an automated build (including test) to detect integration errors as quickly as possible.” –Martin Fowler

  • Pair programming
  • Planning Game
  • Test Driven Development
  • Whole team
  • Continuous Integration
  • Design Improvement
  • Small Releases
  • Coding Standards
  • Collective Code Ownership
  • Simple Design
  • System Metaphor
  • Sustainable Pace
continuous integration scenario
Continuous Integration Scenario
  • Developer checks out latest source code from repository.
  • Developer makes changes (hopefully with TDD).
  • Developer checks out latest source again to look for conflicts.
  • With conflicts resolved, developer checks in changes to repository.
  • CI system, detecting changes, checks out source code on an integration server.
  • CI system builds.
  • CI system runs automated tests.

Is CI just another unpracticed trend?
  • Who in the room does CI?
  • Nant and CruiseControl.Net widely used.
nant overview
Nant Overview
  • Targets contain Tasks (think functions)
  • Tasks perform actions


<propertyname="build.dir" value="CruiseControlDemoProject\bin\Debug"/>


<targetname="clean" depends="config">




Properties are variables

Targets may have dependencies

Demo: basic file usage

important nant tasks
Important Nant Tasks
  • Nunit
  • Copy
  • Mkdir, rmdir
  • Foreach
  • Zip, tar
  • Functions exist as well
  • Also: ability to pass in parameters at command line
