Guidance Automation Extensions (GAX) and Guidance Automation Toolkit (GAT) for VSTS 2008
Guidance Automation Extensions and Guidance Automation Toolkit Download - February 2008 (Overview from download page)
The Guidance Automation Extensions (GAX) expands the capabilities of Visual Studio by allowing architects and developers to run guidance packages, such as those included in Software Factories, which automate key development tasks from within the Visual Studio environment.
The Guidance Automation Toolkit (GAT) is a guidance package which allows architects to author rich, integrated user experiences for reusable assets including Software Factories, frameworks, and patterns. The resulting guidance packages, composed of templates, wizards and recipes, help developers build solutions in a way consistent with the architecture guidance. In order to use GAT, you must first install the GAX. For more information about the GAT, see Introduction to the Guidance Automation Toolkit.
GAX and GAT must be downloaded and installed separately. GAT requires that GAX is installed first.
If you have a previous version of GAX installed on Visual Studio 2005, it will be updated to the February 2008 release of GAX. You are no longer required to uninstall GAX and the corresponding guidance packages (with an exception of GAT, which must be re-installed).
