Nitish Nagpal brings us this support experience today....
When the main solution is modified, the customer did not want to rebuild the .DLL solutions, as this took a lot of time.
The goal was:
- Set the build order between the build definitions so when a .DLL solution was modified it would be built first and then the solution dependent on it would build
- Propose an alternate solution to organize the solutions so that when a project is modified only the projects dependent on it will be rebuilt
We don’t have a feature that allows one build definition to be triggered from another at this time. Recommended workaround:
You could consider dependency replication: geekswithblogs.net/.../tfs-build-dependency-replication-using-community-tfs-build-extensions.aspx
