FinalBuilder is a powerful Automated Build& Release Management tool which makes it easy for softwaredevelopers to define and maintain a reliable and repeatable buildprocess.
FinalBuilder includes integration with version control systems,file and directory operations, iterators, source code compilers,testing tools, database systems, installation tools, as well asactions for deployment over the Internet and CD/DVD burning builtin. FinalBuilder is a program that allows anyone in the team to runa build.
FinalBuilder will help you:
– Save time and money – automated builds are much quicker thanmanual builds, sometimes cutting something that took a day down tominutes.
– Allow anyone in the team to run a build – FinalBuilder is so easyto use, so you won’t need a “build guru” team member to run allyour builds.
– Improve the quality of your releases – FinalBuilder cuts thehuman error factor substantially, automating the boring repetitivetasks.
– Have a record of what was built when – FinalBuilder logs theoutput from all the tools it calls, and the logs from previousbuilds are archived
FinalBuilder dramatically accelerates the software developmentcycle by automating the software build process. As well asincreasing the speed and reliability of the build process, it alsoincreases staff productivity by relieving them of the repetitiveand error prone tasks.
Here are some key features of “FinalBuilder”:
– FinalBuilder presents a build process in a logically structured,graphical interface. Any software developer can define and maintaina build with FinalBuilder, without learning a new XML schema orscripting language.
600+ Built-in Actions:
– With over 600 built-in scripts, called actions, FinalBuilder hasan action to automate every common task in a build process. It alsointegrates with your existing compiler, version control and testingtools.
– A debugging engine is fully integrated into the FinalBuilder IDE.You can step between actions, set break points and set variablewatches to debug your build process.
Continuous Integration Server:
– FinalBuilder Professional includes a full featured ContinuousIntegration and Automated Build server to build and test your codethe moment it is checked-in to version control.
Advanced Flow Control:
– FinalBuilder includes Try, Catch actions for localised errorhandling; as well as all the loops and conditional statements youget in a full programming language.
– FinalBuilder provides tight integration with the windowsscheduling service, which allows builds to be scheduled to rundaily, weekly or whenever you wish.
– Output from all actions in the build process is directed to thebuild log. The log maintains the same tree structure as the actionlists, which makes it easy to find your way in the log file. Logscan be exported in HTML, XML or text formats.
Email, MSN, FTP & SFTP Support:
– Your build process can email the results of the build to you, sofor example if the build fails, it can export the log, attach it toan email and send it to you. Or it can send you an ICQ message. Youcan announce successful builds on nntp news servers.
– Using variables is the key to making your build process dynamic.Use variables to pass information from one action to another, andalso to enable actions to use user specific or machine specificvalues.
Version Control Integration:
– FinalBuilder supports more than a dozen version control systemsout-of-the-box, so it can get, checkout, tag and perform otherbuild related operations with your existing revision controlsystem.
Rich Web Interface:
– FinalBuilder’s web interface has been carefully crafted tocombine functionality with usability. Enjoy an accelerated webexperience with AJAX status pages, logs, properties pages and flashbased build metrics.
– More than just the numbers, FinalBuilder Server’s build metricsprovide an insight into the quality of your builds over the life ofthe software project. These interactive charts expose trends incompiler errors, unit test results and help compiler errors.
Web Accessible Build Logs:
– Comprehensive record keeping is built into FinalBuilder and so isa straightforward method to access this information remotely. Getremote access to the finer details of your build using the dynamicor static logs.
– FinalBuilder Server integrates seamlessly with your existingActive Directory accounts to make team management a breeze. Thebuilt-in team system also provides customizable security roles andpermissions for interaction with projects, triggers, serverconfiguration and more.
Triggers & Conditions:
– In addition to continuous integration triggers, FinalBuilderServer provides a triggers to execute a build at a specified time,interval, process output or file event. Conditions are alsoavailable to give you control over your build triggers.
– Continuous feedback is an important counterpart to continuousintegration. With FinalBuilder Server, your automated build processcan deliver continuous feedback about build results via email, RSSand tray notification.
