Team Foundation Server SDK

The Visual Studio Team Foundation Server SDK includes documentation and samples to help you develop software products that integrate with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server. This documentation applies to the released versions of Visual Studio 2005 and Team Foundation Server.

The intended audience includes Team Foundation Server tool vendors, independent software vendors (ISVs), early adopters, and evaluators who want to explore the extensibility, adaptability, and integration characteristics of the various components of Team Foundation Server. In addition, anyone who writes code against the Team Foundation Server object models can benefit from this documentation.

Before you use this SDK to write code for the object models, review the Team Foundation Administrator's Guide to learn how to customize work item types, process templates, and Team Foundation build. You can create custom work item types, new check-in policies, and new reports without using this SDK.

In addition to this content, many community forums exist where you can post questions and engage in discussions with Microsoft product groups. For more information, see the Visual Studio Team System Developer Center (
