Specifies the settings that must be used for the ASP.NET Development Server for the test. This is primarily used for Web service unit tests.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting.Web
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple = true)]
public sealed class AspNetDevelopmentServerAttribute : Attribute

When you run a test with an AspNetDevelopmentServerAttribute, an ASP.NET Development Server instance is started. You can then use TryUrlRedirection to redirect a Web service object so it points to that server instead of what is defined in the Web reference. By pointing to the server, you can ensure that an ASP.NET Development Server site is started and at a known URL when you run a Web service test.

This attribute targets methods. Multiple instances of this attribute may be applied to a method.
