Implement the IDeploymentStep interface to create a custom deployment step for SharePoint projects. When you deploy a SharePoint project, Visual Studio executes a series of deployment steps. Visual Studio includes built-in deployment steps for many tasks, such as retracting and adding solutions. However, you can also create your own deployment steps.

A deployment step is a singleton that is instantiated once per Visual Studio instance.
