Support for 170+ Tools
With Automated Build Studio, you can automate almost any step of software development, deployment and testing processes. The product supports over 170 commercial and free tools including compilers, source control systems, virtual and cloud machines, database servers, issue-tracking systems, installation builders, IMs and more.
See the list of Supported Tools to check whether Automated Build Studio supports the application you need.
Even if you do not find this or that application in the list, you can automate it by using command-line arguments, by creating VBScript or JScript code working with the application via COM, or by writing a custom ABS operation.
