Hi Pavan,

This is not directly supported, but all of the building blocks are present.  You can start by adding two new MSBuild Targets to your .btdfproj named CustomDeployTarget and CustomUnDeployTarget.  Then you can use the XmlFile.SetValue MSBuild task to update the esb.config.  The documentation for that task is here, and note that all of those custom tasks are available for use in your .btdfproj.  The path to the ESB Toolkit install dir is available in an MSBuild property named EsbDir [reference like $(EsbDir)].

Hopefully that will help get you going.
