Build Tools for .NET applications

Discussion in 'Microsoft Dot NET Framework' started by skumar_natarajan, Sep 29, 2003.

  1. Im new to .NET (heavy Java background). I was wondering
    if there are any command line build tools used
    specifically for .NET applications. My application
    consists of ASP.NET pages and back-end components.

    I dont want to use Visual Studio .NET.

    I was looking at NAnt, but Im not sure if that is what
    everyone uses.

  2. Yes, NAnt is widely used and is pretty good. Try VisualBuild too.

    Thanks,
    Parag/-

    There's a free tool called BuildIt available in source code form that you
    can modify if/as needed to suit your particular needs. I've heard that MSFT
    will be coming out with their own command line build program.

    You can use note pad for writing code and can be compiled using commandline
    tools. csc.exe is the compilor for C# and vbc.exe is for VB.Net. You can
    see this tools in the installation folder of dotnet framework in your
    machine.

    FinalBuilder - It's GUI and command-line, and offers all you could
    ever ask for:

    http://www.atozedsoftware.com/finalbuilder/

    Highly recommended - I use it all the time and I'm extremely happy
    with it.

  6. In addition to the others comments.

    Not sure if you do not want to use VS.NET because: a) its VS.NET b) $$ or c)
    its an IDE.

    However for free IDEs there are Web Matrix & Sharp Develop.

    http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/

    http://www.icsharpcode.net/opensource/sd/

    I know Sharp Develop has a build facility, while the first is a good IDE for
    ASP.NET pages.

    Hope this helps
