Xmake is a console application for building C/C++ projects. It uses XML syntax to describe the necessary files required to build a project and is much easier to explain than make. It is based on a project with one or more "configurations", thus allowing a single file to build across multiple platforms/compilers. Each of the specified source files can belong to one or more of the configurations. The program will automatically do dependency checking for consecutive builds. There are pre- and post-build steps that allow you execute commands to the shell. The pre/post-build steps are also linked to the configuration, so you can be platform specific per configuration.
The P4DTI connects your defect tracking system to the Perforce configuration management system, so that you don't have to switch between them and enter duplicate information about your work. It also links changes made in Perforce with defect tracker issues, making it easy to find out why a change was made, find the work that was done to resolve an issue, or generate reports relating issues to files or codelines.
