Hello,

I have several project setttings of my project, current I use the excellent
DDevExtensions to manage them, it's a paint when I need to release new
version frequently. Current I have a batch file to call the Inno Setup to
build the installer, however the Delph Build part has not been automate yet.

Another question , I also want to automate the FTP upload part, any advices?
Any free tool I can use? Thanks.

Edwin.

For many years now I use Ant to build my Delphi releases, it is very
powerful and not hard to learn.

ant.apache.org


Ant can do this (with some free add-on libraries).

For example Delphi build scripts, you can check my Open Source projects:

There is no Project -> Ant script converter (but I have never missed it).

Hope this helps

Heartily agreed. It does all aspects of building our projects, and does things like
making ISO images and emailing appropriate people etc.

build.xml in the root (trunk) folder is the main Ant script file, it
uses build.properties to set some paths, and can be started with make.cmd

I downloaded both projects (source code from sourceforge) and could not find
an appropriate build file.

It would be even better if the delphi compiler-action had a checkbox for
"Install package"
