Custom build rule in Visual Studio

Hi everybody,

I have a bunch of IDLs (nearly 100), which is an easy job to do on Linux using a makefile. But now I have to use those IDLs in Visual Studio 2012 (C++). I don't like to add each and every single IDL file manually, defining the command line and the output, as it is done eg. in the Hello_idl example. Is there a way to define a build rule, so that I can simply add all my IDLs somewhere and Visual Studio does the rest?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Build RTI DDS and Connext DDS from source


Hi there!

First off, I applaud RTI for providing source code for the core libraries and utilities for RTI and Connext DDS!  Kudos!

My main question is: are there any resources on how to properly build the source package?  I couldn't find any documentation for doing this in the Core Library and Utilities Getting Started, Users Manual, or Platform Notes pdf files.  Perhaps I missed something obvious, though (I hope so)!
