Create custom code and plug-ins for load tests

 

A custom plug-in uses code that you write and attach to a load test or a Web performance test. You can use the load test API and the Web Performance test API to create custom plug-ins for tests to expand to the built-in functionality.

In this version, you can add multiple plug-ins to your load test. Prior to Visual Studio Ultimate 2010, you were limited to using only one plug-in per load test. You no longer have to place all of your add-in code into the same plug-in.
