  • As part of this continuous process of delivering value, one component that often gets overlooked is the release phase. As a distinct piece, it’s not always that hard to deploy a single instance of an application to a single environment. However, the promise of continuous value relies on the ability to continuously publish updated versions of an application across a variety of environments for various purposes, which can be very difficult to perform and manage. As a result, Microsoft continually invests a lot of effort in simplifying and scaling this process so that it can become more repeatable, predictable, and transparent.
  • Commitment to more frequent product updates shows that Build, Measure, Learn and agile development practices are being applied within Microsoft. Updates to Team Foundation Service are now occurring every few weeks.Given the higher-frequency of updates, organizations may need to make some changes to the way they evaluate new versions of development tools. There may be no “right time” to make the necessary upgrades and modify internal processes, so organizations will need to quickly match their needs with the current offering in order to make a decision. Some organizations may update as quickly as updates arrive, while others will be more selective. To help support these decisions, quite a bit of work goes into maintaining backwards compatibility with the previous major update, and different versions of Visual Studio can be installed side-by-side when needed.
  • A major goal is the ability to take a single build package and push it out to each environment in the same way.[Build]This drastically reduces the amount of manual effort required to update the environments and can make the entire process much smoother.
  • Another important aspect to each release environment is what we’ll refer to as the “stage stack”. This is a simple layout of the steps typically required to get a packaged app from a build location out to a prepared environment, through the necessary install and configuration, through the required tests, and finally approved for migration to the next stage. Microsoft has provided many of the tools to support this stack, although sometimes a little extra work is required to help it all work together.[Build]Lab Manager is available to help provision environments.[Build]PowerShell is ideal for configuring environments.[Build]There are some useful built-in tools for deploying and installing the application itself.[Build]And lots of companies invest in their own custom tools to configure applications.[Build]Running automated tests during the release process is becoming the standard for applications of every type.[Build]Microsoft Test Manager handles the testing aspects.[Build]And now with Release Management for Team Foundation Server 2013, this entire process is only going to get better.
  • Let’s take a look at how the new release management infrastructure fits into your development environment.[Build]First, you’ll deploy Release Management Server.[Build]Next, you’ll install deployment nodes on the target systems in your deployment environments.[Build]You can then configure Release Management Server to pull builds from TFS and push them out to the specified environment.[Build]There is also a client app and Web UI that allow users to interact with the release management, workflow, and reporting features.A release typically gets triggered by an automated event, whether it’s a check-in or on a schedule. However, you can manually create a release as well. Once a release is begun, it works its way down the “release path”, which might be “Dev to QA to Production” with automated and/or manual gates at each.The paths are composed on the various servers grouped into environments on which the testing for the stage is performed. Once an application needs to be deployed to a new environment, the server will queue deployment requests to all the required target servers for each component of the application. This allows an atomic deployment of all the components.The Release Management Deployment Agent running on each target server monitors the Release Management Server continually, at a configurable interval, and will pick the installation requests for the one or many components it needs to install locally.The Deployment Agent will then find and download the release package, provided by the Release Management Server. RMS calculates the location using the TFS API, if built by TFS, or using a predefined UNC path if not. Finally, the Deployment Agent downloads any additional executables, such as batch files, PowerShell scripts, EXEs, etc, to be run as part of the installation. These are additional deployment activities beyond the installation itself. Creating test data or triggering automated tests are common scenarios here.
