With SparkBuild, build results are displayed graphically, making it easy to pinpoint and correct errors, Electric Cloud said. The product is based on the technology developed for Electric Cloud's commercial enterprise tools, including the ElectricAccelerator distributed build system and the ElectricInsight build visualization tool.
"To date, developers have been forced to choose between slow and safe or fast and dangerous desktop builds," said Mike Maciag, Electric Cloud CEO. "Electric Cloud solved the build speed and accuracy problem for full builds with our ElectricAccelerator product. Now we're leveraging our expertise and technology to provide this benefit on the developer desktop with a free tool."
