>                 Key: CB-9994

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Windows
>         Environment: Windows Store Apps

> The CLI currently generates Windows Store Apps in a different way than VisualStudio would
do it.
> In Visual Studio no appx/appxupload packages are built in the normal build. Instead VS
copies/compiles all the files to a bld folder and deploys the app from that folder. No signing
cert required, dev cert is enough for that. It's also a much faster build that way. If you
only change one js files, the build is basically instant, as well as the deployment because
Windows does a binary diff package update in the system. This is much faster than the current
way CLI builds Windows targets.
> There should be a CLI task "publish" to create the .appxupload package, they should not
be created on every build.
