Code metrics produced from your automated build

Brian Harry

One of the things about our 2010 product line that has embarassed me from the beginning is that there’s no way to use our code metrics tools to produce data from an automated build.  Our tools only work in the VS IDE and on the loaded solution.  No longer!  We just released a Power Tool that enables you to run code metrics from the command line and therefore to integrate it into your build process.  I wish I could say the data was put in the warehouse and was really easy to generate report from, but I can’t.  The data is emitted as an XML file and, for now, you are on your own to turn that into a report/visualization.  But, at least now, the scenario is enabled and we will build on top of this in the future to make the reporting more automatic.  You can read more about it here:
