Support for CruiseControl.Net

You guys make great products IMHO, just came across Exception Hunter in a news feed and was wondering if this tool could be plugged into a continuous integration suite like CruiseControl.Net? A build report identifying potential exceptions would be very valuable... thoughts?

    Hi isz,

    Thanks for the feedback. It is indeed possible to plug Exception Hunter into cruise control and other CI systems. There is a program called Hunt.exe in C:\Program Files\Red Gate\Exception Hunter 1\, this is a command line version of the tool which can generate XML or one of two report types:

    The function report - Lists each function and the exceptions it can throw; The exception report - Lists each exception and the functions which can throw it.

    (See Hunt.exe /? for the various arguments to the tool)

    We have not had a chance to write detailed instructions on integrating into the different CI systems yet but we will hopefully get some knowledge base articles written in the not too distant future on how to do this.

    Hi isz,

    I'm happy to say that we've written a document about integrating Exception Hunter with CruiseControl that will be featured in codeproject very soon. Hopefully we can find some space for it on our website soon after.

    With the command-line version of Exception Hunter, you can produce HTML exception reports as part of your automated builds, but better still, the article will include instructions for outputting the results directly into your nightly build reports!

    I'll (try to) remember to update this topic when the article goes live.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
