Team Edition for Testers
Visual Studio Team Edition for Testers includes a suite of test tools that are integrated closely with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005; they work not only in their own testing framework, but also within a larger framework of software life cycle tools.
Team Edition for Testers lets you create, manage, edit, and run tests, and also obtain and store test results. Several test types, including unit, Web, load, and manual tests, in addition to the measurement of code coverage, are integrated into Visual Studio. To learn more about the different available test types, see.
You run tests using the Visual Studio IDE. Additionally, you can run groups of tests or any single test other than the manual test type from a command line.
Because the testing tools are integrated with the other parts of the Visual Studio Team System, you can publish results to a database, generate trend and historical reports, compare different kinds of data, and see how many and which bugs were found because of testing.
