We all have things in the development tools and processes that bug us and this is one of mine.  Why am i blogging about this?

- To relieve some frustration

- On the off chance that someone might read this who can do something about it ;-)

What is the configuration manager?

The configuration manager is that tool in visual studio that allows you to configure what mode different projects are in.  See diagram.

Why does it bug me?

Most of these bug me's are related to things i have come across in BizTalk development so maybe they arent a big deal in normal .net coding, but

- What is the BizTalk "development" and "deployment" modes all about, why cant they just be "debug" and "release" like all other projects?

- When you build a project and you then realise that one of your projects was configured to the wrong mode.  You did a debug build but for some reason your xx project was configured to be in release not debug.  Sometimes you seem to actually change this setting without actually changing it (Thats my way of not falling into the bad workman blames his tools bracket)

- When you change the settings in the configuration manager you seem to have to close it to save the settings.

- And finally that bloody "Deploy" setting just please take it out.  Deploying through Visual Studio may seem simple but it sets the deployment path to be your local path which causes problems when you export your application as an msi.  The better way is to use BTSTask or the BizTalk Admin Console

 

Ok so im glad thats off my chest and i now feel much more chilled out, saved me some money on therapy
