Where is the Team Foundation Beta 3 Extensibility Kit?

This question comes up fairly often (understandably), so I wanted to point out the update from Brian Harry in the forums: http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=120657 We were supposed to get it last week but there was a miscommunication between us and the VSIP team on when the VSIP SDK would be made available.  We are working on finding an…

Team Foundation {Version,Source} Control – Which is it?

This is, for the most part, just random useless trivia that hopefully won’t really affect customers at all. Over a year ago, RobCaron passed on the news of our (that is to say, Brian‘s 😉 naming decision for what the project codenamed “Hatteras” was going to be officially called: Team Foundation Version Control The (only)…

I have a 1.1 app – what’s going to break as I migrate up to 2.0?

I’ve had 2 of my ISV buddies ask me this, so I’ll provide the link here that I have to them:     http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/programming/breakingchanges/default.aspx On a fully-unrelated note, as Buck mentioned, the TFS Beta3 VPC image (with all 3 tiers on the one machine, so give your VPC lots of memory!) is done and should be on MSDN Real…

simple command-line example: listing the team projects on a server

This is a very simple example showing a simple use of the ICommonStructureService.   Running against my current test server shows some of the test projects I made yesterday while testing a bug fix:    % ListTeamProjects.exe jmanning-test empty-folder                   vstfs:///Classification/TeamProject/313a9cf6-a2b9-4f03-9fd4-73fbc22aaf80 [WellFormed] no-folder                      vstfs:///Classification/TeamProject/f76c2d64-6029-4292-8b99-91ba8fbb5ba9 [Deleting] branch-of                      vstfs:///Classification/TeamProject/b29bb5a2-f921-4f10-a281-b845192427c3 [WellFormed]   using System; using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client; using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Server;  …

tracepoints – get rid of your printf-style debugging!

With many bugs (most, one would hope), a debugger is your best friend.  You step through the code, make sure it’s doing what it’s supposed to, have it break on exceptions (just thrown or unhandled), skip around the code, check for variables at various places in the stack, inspect data structures, etc. etc. etc. On…
