ProjectLocker Announces BuildLocker Continuous Integration

Allows development teams to generate virtual servers

ProjectLocker has announced the general release of BuildLocker, a zero-install build management solution for continuous integration. BuildLocker allows development teams to generate virtual servers on a scheduled basis, solely dedicated to performing fully automated builds for software applications during integration testing. With BuildLocker, development managers can identify application defects and other project integration hazards far earlier in the development cycle, reducing their cost for correction while minimizing their impact on the application release schedule.

Since BuildLocker generates a new virtual server each time a build is scheduled, it guarantees that each build is performed in a pristine environment, ensuring that all builds and tests are reproducible and preventing any potential contamination of the process from the byproducts from prior runs. In short, BuildLocker eliminates the "it works on my machine" syndrome.

In addition to simply verifying that code compiles, BuildLocker can also execute automated test suites to provide an ongoing window into the quality of a project's code. As a multi-platform solution, BuildLocker ensures the ongoing platform compatibility of your code on all relevant platforms. It can even manage a separate isolated build environment for each of a team's projects.

As a completely hosted, Web-based solution with no software installation requirements, BuildLocker eliminated the need for development teams to procure and manage their own dedicated hardware server, providing the easiest route to add regular, automated builds to their development process.

BuildLocker can currently target builds on on Linux (Fedora Core) and Windows Server 2003. Currently supported build tools are Ant, Maven, and MS Build. Language support currently includes Java (1.4 and higher), .NET, C++, and Ruby.
