I guess everyone has some favorite places to think about differenct aspects. I have two when thinking about technology related stuff. One of them I don't want to mention here, but the other one I just began to use again: Running to achieve T-16.
During today's run I was just reflecting TechEd04, especially the session of Clemens about Proseware Inc. At all the session was good, I liked it. But I can't agree on the deployment statement Clemens threw into the room: XCOPY deployment does not work for complex/serious projects. Sure, this is true if you are also deploying part of the infrastructure and some pieces are definitely infrastructure in that example scenario. Application Pool creation, account creation, ACL adjustment, etc... are not necessarily part of your software project. You could also see them as part of the infrastructure which could also be provided for you by the responsible infrastructure people.
In the projects I worked, the infrastructure departments have been very restrictive in allowing installation processes to create there own relevant infrastructure to run at. It was mostly the case that the IT processes already established in enterprise organisations insist on infrastructure provided by there IT department. They are responsible and accountable for operations in their organisation and therefore installing and updating software. They don't like the idea of automatic account creation or let it better say any automatic infrastructure resource creation or manipulation, even if it is just for the purpose of the software you want to install.
I don't like general statements. Sure, XCOPY deployment does not work for complex/serious projects. I could also say: XCOPY deployment does WORK for complex/serious projects.
It is all a matter of what you have to provide (if you are allowed to) on additional infrastructure to make your project XCOPY deploys. If you don't have to, you have XCOPY deployment.
