|Stable release||6.50 / September 19, 2013|
Automated Build Studio developed by SmartBear Software is a build and release management system that provides automation of the software development build, test and release processes. Current version contains over 840 built-in operations that allow users to automate different tasks.
Visual Macro Designer helps to create visually constructed macros.
840 built-in operations - a variety of automated builds that run unattended.
Distributed build support lets users distribute the execution of macro operations among multiple computers.
Remote Macro Execution Control – running macros located on remote computers and monitoring such macro runs.
Concurrent execution of operations – organizing macro operations so they can be executed simultaneously.
Charts displaying macro run statistics - displaying the information in a graphical form within the Charts panel. This feature helps to analyze the ratio of successful and failed runs, the duration of macro runs and the frequency of macro runs over a desired period of time.
Tasks Scheduler is a key feature for creation of automated daily builds. It helps to create scheduled macro runs.
Macro debugger is similar to debugging an application in a development tool. Debugging features allow checking whether the macro functions correctly or quickly locating errors in the macro and fixing them.
Automatic notifications - getting notification of whether a macro run was successful or not. Notification can be sent in different forms: via E-mail, Windows Messenger, MSN Messenger or Windows Live Messenger, or ICQ.
Assistant - a context-sensitive Assistant that displays commands, hints and links to help topics.
Run via command-line – execution of macros without loading them into the Build Studio IDE - by specifying the desired macro name in Build Studio's command line.
Automated Build Studio integrates with a variety of compilers, version control systems, installation builders and many other tools.
