NETMF build overview


#1

Can anyone point me to doc on the build process for NETMF projects? If I were a tool vendor, where can I insert myself into the build process food chain?

It appears that the C# source code is compiled to IL by the normal C# compiler, and then the IL is post-processed by NETMF tools such as “MPP”. Where can I get more details on this level of NETMF operations?

Thanks,
-Danny

There is not much information about that. Some good blog entries on NETMF site. Porting Kit source code and documentation (outdated) . Few other blog entries and how to articles on internet.


#3

The is a book Applied .NET Attributes which has a chapter on extending the compiler, if I recall the authors implement some AOP extentions. It is an old book, but might be an interesting place to start.

@ taylorza - What does that have to do with the NETMF build process?


#5

Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) framework often inject themselves into the build process, which is the case for the version implemented in the book I referenced. Looking at that will give you some insight into the build process.

@ taylorza - Ok, thanks.
