Plugin usage

The plugin can be used with Ant, Command Line, Duplicates finder (.NET), Duplicates finder (Java), FxCop, Inspection, Ipr, Maven2, MSBuild, NAnt, Rake, sln2003, sln2005, sln2008 runners. Swabra tab provides UI options to enable scanning checkout directory for newly created and modified files.

Cleaning can be performed before or after the build.

First the plugin is turned on, it initiates clean checkout, after which in the checkout directory there are only essential files and no garbage. At this moment the state of the checkout directory is saved into a file in the Agent working directory named <checkout_direcory_name>.snapshot using DiskDir format.

This snapshot is used later (after the build finish or at the start of the next build) to determine which files and folders are newly created or modified. It is done by actual files' presence, last modification data and size comparison with corresponding records in the snapshot.

Сonfiguring plugin via UI options

The plugin adds its configuration settings panel to the runner settings page: choose swabra mode as before or after build.

Check Verbose output option to enable detailed logging to build log.
