msbuild noob

SO I am trying to write an msbuild file and I am reading this:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/ms171451(en-US,VS.80).aspx

What should the file name be? it does not say?
project.xml?

I want to have tasks in it, etc.

netsql,

For C# it is csproj, for vb it is vbproj.

However, I think that any file that has an extension that ends in "proj"
is automatically processed by MSBUILD, although I think you can specify the
project file, so to that end, you can give it whatever extension you want.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

If you have Visual Studio 2005, the easiest way to do this is to have
Visual Studio do it for you. If you are deploying a web project, you
may use the Web Deployment Project to do this for you. It is a seperate
download located here:

I recently compiled a list of resources relating to MSBuild:

Hope this helps.
