Roy Osherove posted this video explaining the difference between Automated Builds and CI (ie, FinalBuilder vs Continua CI)

If your Continua CI builds produce HTMl report files, the Reports feature makes it easy to display these files along with your build results. This post shows how.

In this post we'll take a look at integrating Delphi/DUnitX unit tests into Continua CI builds.

FinalBuilder 7.0.0.1497 adds support for Amazon's EC2 Cloud Services.

NuGet is a open source package management tool for .NET applications. It allows you to very simply install, create and share reusable assemblies. With the latest release, FinalBuilder now contains a set of actions to help you interact with NuGet as part of your automated build process.

Over the next few posts, I'm going to try to talk about some of the lesser known features in FinalBuilder, and show some ideas and techniques that I hope will help you improve your FinalBuilder projects.

FinalBuilder has had an NUnit action for some time now, but for DUnit we have always advocated just compiling the unit test executable as a console app using the TextTestRunner, and using the Execute Program action. This has worked fine, however it doesn't provide the same sort of integration into FinalBuilder Server as the NUnit action provides.

It's been a long time in the making, but FinalBuilder is almost here. FinalBuilder 7 has been in private beta testing for a few weeks, and today we are opening the beta to existing customers.

The Accentient Blog provided an interesting post recently comparing Team Foundation Build and FinalBuilder. It was great to see them offer an unbiased insight in to the distinctive advantages of each of these tools and it's worth a read if you're using or planning to use one or both.

We've had plenty to say over the years about the relationship between FinalBuilder and TFS/MSBuild/Team Foundation Build.
