Visual Studio Integration Guide, Version 5.4.0

About the CloudBees Accelerator® Visual Studio Integration

The CloudBees Accelerator Visual Studio Integration is composed of two extensions and the ecdevenv.exe utility:

  • Visual Studio IDE Extension

    This extension integrates with the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE and lets you build Visual Studio solutions and projects using CloudBees Accelerator Electrify (”Electrify”) from within the IDE. The extension provides an Accelerator build menu and toolbar. The existing build menu remains intact for local (non-Electrify) builds.

    This is implemented as a VSPackage starting with Visual Studio 2015 and as an add-in in earlier versions of Visual Studio.

  • Visual Studio Converter Extension

    This extension converts solutions and projects into NMAKE makefiles for eMake compatibility. It is invoked for command-line builds (not for builds invoked from the Visual Studio IDE extension) and ecdevenv.exe.

    This is implemented as a VSPackage starting with Visual Studio 2015 and as an add-in in earlier versions of Visual Studio.

  • ecdevenv.exe Utility

    ecdevenv is a drop-in replacement for devenv.exe that builds Visual Studio solutions and projects using eMake. ecdevenv is available only from the command line. See Using the ecdevenv.exe Utility for information.

The CloudBees Accelerator Visual Studio Integration can be installed automatically during the installation of CloudBees Accelerator .
