Sitecore Custom Login Details With Version

It sure has been a while since I last posted anything interesting...or anything at all! I recently spoke with +Michael Reynolds about blogging but rather than blog I decided to read all the tweets about the Sitecore Symposium :(

Now it's time to pick it back up. What you will see in here isn't all that new, but it is however very useful. Also, at the bottom I have listed a few blogs I know of that cover the same topic. Two of which are far more interesting than mine so be sure to have a look.

Recently at work an issue came up where the QA team did not know if the test environment had the correct build applied (TDS package). I decided to use some old code from a version page I created for the same issue with an applications.

The following is a list of files that we will create to make the magic happen.

  • ReflectionUtil.cs : Generic reflection code to extract version details from the loaded assembly.
  • ApplicationDetails.cs : Pipeline to extract version information.
  • Sitecore.SharedSource.Version.config : Pipeline configuration

The final results are clean and simple.

The following is a list of other posts I found helpful.
