WSPBuilder How-To

  Asked By: Tracey    Date: Apr 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1078

WSPBuilder apparently is proven to be deceptively simple...

Only thing is I can't understand a hooting word of the documentation.
Are there any step-by-step screenshots out there? Anyone have a simple
way to explain how to use the thing?

After installing WSP builder to add it to Visual Studio you will need to
structure your development project so that things to be deployed are created in
Folders that mimic the folder structure of the 12 hive. So for example, if you
are building a feature you need the folders 12/Template/Features/FeatureName in
your project. WSP builder will read that structure and build the WSP for you.

The point of WSP builder is to construct the .WSP file that can be added to
Central admin and deployed using the STSADM command line tool. All you need to
do is give the WSP file created by WSP builder to Ops and they can install it
from there without needing WSP builder.
