Develop your own integration build tool to be used as a precheck-in build test to the golden source trees, or wait for Microsoft to release a tool similar to this one. Keep the points in this chapter in mind when you're building this "silver bullet."
If you deploy a Virtual Build Lab process, require that the VBLs use a SNAP system to stay in sync with the Central Build Lab. This is the whole concept of an integration build system such as this.
Do not rely on the SNAP system as your mainline build tool. Although I mention that some groups at Microsoft use this tool as their Central Build Team build tool, this can be a little problematic because the check-in queues can get really backed up.
Understand that no magic tool is out there to do your work for you when it comes to builds and merging code. But SNAP is a good tool, and some groups at Microsoft cannot live without it.
Make sure you have all the other processes down in this book before trying to roll out a SNAP system. These processes include source tree configuration, build schedules, versioning, build lab, and so on.
