There are tools and methods to package, deploy and instantiate SharePoint applications (I made a case for these SharePoint applications as opposed to ASP.NET applications in a previous blog post here). If you are deploying Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) in a farm environment at an enterprise, there pros and cons of using each one:
1. Packaging Tools
2. Deployment Tools
3. Instantiation Tools
I did not include tools that do just one item (like deploying just a webpart), since the goal is to focus on complete applications. I also did not include tools that would not work well in a farm environment (like deploying using Visual Studio with WSS Extensions, which is great for dev/test but not for a production farm).
My next step now is to attempt to document pros and cons of using each tool in each scenario.
