I got a track back in my aggregator this morning from Martin Hinshelwood who has been working on the TFS Event Handler project up on CodePlex. It is an interesting idea and I’ve had a little look through the source code, but I am wondering about two things:
- Is MSMQ really required? I can see why it is being used but I wonder if there might be a better solution because that is a fairly heavy dependency.
- Looking at the configuration file it seems like the way you “handle” the events is that you add an assembly which gets loaded dynamically. Rather than that I’d prefer to see something more “scripty” like PowerShell being used as the automation language as that would support a more speedy, glue like approach.
Definitely worth looking at though.
