Unit testing is to test the custom code unit immediately after it is created or even as a part of its creation process. The reason to do the unit testing is to catch the errors in the code at an early stage. This improves the overall quality of the application being created. In this article, we will explore Unit Testing using VSTS
Microsoft has always been offering some good tools for developing code with high productivity. Continuing in the same tradition, Visual Studio 2005, working as client for Team Foundation Server, offers abundant features for developing quality code with high productivity. Not only does it allows code creation but also enables testing of that same code. In this article we will take an overview of some of those tools and concepts.
This article provides an overview of testing web application functionality using VSTS. It begins by providing a step-by-step approach on how to set up a Web test case and customize it without writing any code. This article demonstrates an approachability of VSTS Web Testing by all those participating in the development process, including non-developer types. Web test cases can easily be coded as well, and we will describe how to use coded Web tests or extend the built-in Web testing support.
This article provides an overview of source control used in Visual Studio Team System (VSTS). Source Control in VSTS does, not only standard version control task but also provides very important link between the Team Project which is managed by VSTS and the technology solution which uses Microsoft .NET
This article provides information about structure of the process template in Visual Studio Team System. It shows how a simple change which is most frequently required, that of deleting and adding the activities in the process can be achieved.
In this article we will study Team Build which is the way to create and execute a build. We will also study the engine behind Team Build called MSBuild.
Visual Studio Team System exposes number of opportunities to extend its features and functionality. Responding to events published by the Team Foundation Server (TFS) is one of the extensibility opportunities which may be used most extensively. In this two part series, we will take an overview of the events raised by TFS and how to subscribe to those events
Developers need to have feedback about the quality of code immediately after the code is written. Team Edition for Software Developers which is part of Visual Studio Team System provides an integrated tool named Code Metrics to calculate how the code is written based upon some quantifiable criterion and shows the results in a separate window. Calculations are based upon criterions like Cyclomatic complexity, number of lines in code and inheritance depth etc. all resulting in maintainability index of the code. In this article we will take an overview of Code Metrics built into VSTS.
With Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), Microsoft has made available an integrated set of tools which are used by members of the software development team. All the tools used by various roles work on the same data which makes them integrated. These tools also need to access some services for managing the data. The data storage and the common services are provided by a server component of VSTS which is called Team Foundation Server (TFS).In this article we will take an overview of TFS and services offered by TFS.
In the first part of this article we discussed about how to subscribe to the events which are published by the Team Foundation Server (TFS). Although the events published by TFS are quite extensive, there still may exist need to subscribe to the events which are not covered by TFS. To publish such events we need to create a separate event class and an application to raise that event.
