Guidance Automation Toolkit and Domain-Specific Language Tools for Visual Studio 2005: Integration Scenarios November 17, 2006

Posted by Patricio in Software Engineering, Software Factories.
add a comment

The Microsoft Guidance Automation Package (GAT) and Domain-Specific Language Tools for Visual Studio 2005 (DSL) are two key technologies in Microsoft’s software-factory strategy that allow architects and developers to author and package guidance and domain-specific languages.GAT and DSL offer considerable value when used separately. However, when used together, they complement each other and, more importantly, can make up for certain limitations that each technology might have in its current state.

This paper presents a few GAT/DSL integration scenarios and discusses the benefits of adopting them, how to combine the two technologies, and whether you need to develop significant code development to do that.

add a comment

SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard enables the deployment of SQL Server 2005 databases into a hosted environment on either a SQL Server 2000 or 2005 server. It generates a single SQL script file which can be used to recreate a database (both schema and data) in a shared hosting environment where the only connectivity to a server is through a web-based control panel with a script execution window. If supported by the hosting service provider, the Database Publishing Wizard can also directly uploads databases to servers located at the shared hosting provider.

Measuring Success with Software Factories and Visual Studio Team System November 7, 2006

Posted by Patricio in Software Engineering, Software Factories, Visual Studio Team System.

This white paper discusses how software factories and Microsoft Visual Studio Team System can be used together to improve quality, predictability, and productivity. Using Visual Studio Team System data-warehouse and reporting capabilities, the software-factory builder can reliably determine which aspects of product development need improvement and how to modify the software factory to improve them.

This white paper concludes that greater quality, predictability, and productivity can be achieved with a software-factory approach, rather than with traditional one-off development. The concepts and working methods are targeted at an audience of systems integrators and enterprise customers who develop custom software.

Install VSTO 2005 SE to create new application-level add-ins for six applications in the 2007 Microsoft Office system and five in Microsoft Office 2003. Use managed code to customize task panes and the Ribbon in the 2007 Microsoft Office system applications.

VSTO 2005 SE includes support for Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form template projects, previously available as a separate product known as the Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 Toolkit for Visual Studio 2005. You can now design InfoPath 2007 form solutions right in the Visual Studio 2005 environment if you have InfoPath 2007 installed on your computer.

Feature highlights:

  • Application-level add-in projects for six applications in the 2007 Microsoft Office system: Microsoft Office Excel 2007, Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007, Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, Microsoft Office Visio 2007, and Microsoft Office Word 2007.
  • Support for the new Ribbon user interface extensibility model.
  • Support for the new application-level customizable task pane.
  • Support for managed code behind InfoPath 2007 forms.
  • Application-level add-in projects for five Microsoft Office 2003 applications (Professional Edition and Standard Edition): Microsoft Office Excel 2003, Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003, Microsoft Office Visio 2003, and Microsoft Office Word 2003.

The Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office Second Edition (VSTO 2005 SE) redistributable package installs the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime, which is required to run solutions built using VSTO 2005 or VSTO 2005 SE. This runtime supports solutions built for Microsoft Office 2003 or the 2007 Microsoft Office system.
