Guidance Automation Toolkit
Categories: IDEs - IDE add-ins
Latest version: February 2008
Using the GAT, you can make reusable code and pattern assets directly available in Visual Studio 2005 and 2008.
The GAT is designed to simplify integrating reusable code into applications allowing architects to automate development activities that developers would usually have to perform manually; often by following a series of instructions. By using the toolkit, architects can also ensure that repetitive and often error-prone activities are performed in a consistent manner, streamlining and accelerating the development process.
The toolkit can be used with assets developed in-house or by third parties; such as the assets created by the Microsoft patterns & practices team. These assets can be exposed to developers within Visual Studio, and in some cases, configured by using configuration files, templates, and wizards.
In order to use GAT, you must first install the Guidance Automation Extensions (GAX), which expands Visual Studio by allowing guidance packages to run.
