Tool 1:Team Foundation Server Integration Tools (March 2011 Release)

Team Foundation Server – Migration and Integration Forum

Description:

The TFS Integration Tools is a project developed by the Team Foundation Server (TFS) product group and the Visual Studio ALM Rangers to integrate Team Foundation Server with third party systems for migration and synchronization of data. Although the tools can be used for many purposes, planning, thorough testing and honest evaluation of extra resources and cost that will be required should precede any decision to use the Integration Tools. The Integration Tools are not intended to replace a server upgrade as a path to TFS2010 and this scenario should be avoided if possible.

This release (March 2011) is an update to the August 2010 release that fixes several important bugs that were reported by customers. No new scenarios are enabled in this release. If you are using the August 2010 release, you should upgrade to this release by uninstalling your current tool and installing this version in its place.

Description:

The TFS Integration Platform is a project developed by the Team Foundation Server (TFS) product group and the Visual Studio ALM Rangers to facilitate the development of tools that integrate TFS with other systems. Currently, the scope of this project is to enable TFS to integrate with other version control and work-item/bug tracking systems, but the eventual goal of this project is to enable integration with a broader range of tools/systems (i.e. build). This platform enables the development of two major classifications of tools: tools that move data unidirectionally into TFS, and tools that synchronize data bidirectionally.
