Building Development Infrastructures

Thus development infrastructures should provide solutions that support all levels of development, beginning with the local system and moving on to shared server environments while maintaining security levels and allowing proper functionality to meet developer requirements. As such, a complete development infrastructure solution should support the following situations (see Figure 3):

  • Local coding with Windows XP and virtual machines

  • Remote coding with Active Directory

  • Global development coding support

In addition, in a corporate environment, the complete development infrastructure solution should support end-user developers. A complete structure should then include this item:

  • A distributed development support system

  • This last part of the puzzle is to help support local coding without providing the end-user developer with more rights than are required—something that Windows 2000 and Windows XP finally support much better than Windows NT ever did.

    Figure 3Figure 3 A complete development support infrastructure must begin with solutions for the local system, include server-based solutions, be based on ongoing processes, and include support for the end-user developer.

    This article series will examine each part in turn. The end result will be a complete development support infrastructure for Windows systems—one that meets everyone's mission.
