Microsoft Test Manager Test Artifact organization…

It is still a bit complicated, or better a bit confusing, how the different parts within Microsoft Test Manager are organized. This post is a try to clear things a bit [mostly for myself ]… please respond if I made a mistake! On MSDN this image is shown to explain the organization of test artifacts, but this is a simplification, the reality is a bit more sophisticated and complex. For example test cases can exist in different suites, plans and even different team projects.      A different view… And again, correct me if I’m wrong… See image below; a project collection has multiple team projects and a team project only can live in one project collection. A test pl... [More]

Architecture Journal Article: Models and Application Life-Cycle Management

This article discusses the creation and maintenance of consistent, correct, and communicative software architecture by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. Setting up, validating, and maintaining consistent, correct, and communicative software architecture in its context and interaction with its environment is no trivial task. A new architecture needs to be created. But how do you know if this architecture is good? Covering all areas, dealing with all the requirements and quality attributes is difficult; but forgetting to discuss one or more is easy and will leave space for assumptions. Because of changing requirements, your architecture needs to be changed. But how do you know if it i... [More]

Visual Studio Architecture Guidance - Use UML Models for Testing

To promote our ranger work a bit more… I want to high light a specific scenario… create tests from UML models. I already played with this scenario from an automation perspective 2 years ago, when VS2010 was still in CTP. [see the bad quality video, already watched more as 17.000 time ] Generate Testcases Anyway, there are two common test design techniques that are used to specify test cases based on UML. The first is the Process cycle test[1] (PCT) which uses UML activity diagrams. The other one is Use Case Test[2] (UCT) which is based on Use Case diagrams. Still on my backlog to make a fully working automation for these [waiting for Feature Builder to go RTM]. But, you also can d... [More]
