In part 1, 2 and 3 I showed you how to create a simple MSBuild script and how to execute it from the command line. We had a look at how to clean your output directories, download the Nuget packages, compile your code, run MSpec tests and creating a code coverage report. In this last part of this series I will show you how to integrate it with Jenkins. First of all we want Jenkins to pull the latest code from Github as soon as somebody has pushed new code to Github. To do this we need to install…

In the previous parts (part 1, part 2) of this series I described how to clean, download Nuget packages and build your solution using MSBuild. In this part I will explain you how to create a MSpec MSBuild target and a Code coverage MSBuild target. MSpec is a testing framework which enables you to write living specifications. Using the MSpec console runner you can easily generate an html report. This report can later on be published using the Jenkins report plugin. By publishing this report we h…

In part 1 of this blog series we had a look at a very basic MSBuild script which enables us to compile our projects. For doing this I provided you guys with a simple batch file to make it even more simple to execute the build script. In this episode we will focus on cleaning the folders before building again and getting the Nuget packages using Nuget package restore. The latter I will explain further for you first. Nuget package restore can be enabled in Visual studio. A best practice is to en…

Very lately I have worked on setting up some continuous integration (CI) using MSbuild for my c# project. In this blog series I will explain to you how to set up continuous integration. First of all we will start with creating a MSBuild script which will compile our code. We will also create a small batch file for easy executing the MSbuild script. When that is in place, we will add several targets to the build script to run for example unit tests, integration tests, code coverage, packaging e…
