Architecture Analysis Practices with VS2010 Direct Graphs and Layer Diagrams

Been using the direct graph [DGML] and layer diagram capabilities from VS2010 for a while now. Used them on many different projects with a wide spread of architectures, different quality levels and with many questions to answer about it. And I recognized a common way of working when using the tools… It looks something like this: Zoom Out – Recognize - Zoom In – Analyze - Zoom Out or Zoom In – Group – Zoom Out and can been done in a different order… Some examples will explain the analysis process better. Chaos Example. First the question, the question what to analyze is the starting point and actually the key driver of the success factor of your analysis. The funny thing most project ... [More]

VS2010 TMap Testing Template | The Test Infrastructure

Initial Work Items #2 Setting up and maintaining the test infrastructure, beside the Initial Work Items #1 which describe / help create the Master Test Plan, also activities for setting up the environment must take place at the early stage of the project. The test infrastructure consists of the facilities and resources necessary to carry out the testing satisfactorily. A distinction is made between the facilities for test execution (test environments), for supporting the testing (test tools) and for the day-to-day work of the testers (workplaces). While it doesn’t look like rocket science, just setting up an environment, most projects lack a good structure for these activities resulting in... [More]

VS2010 TMap Testing Template | Initial Work Items #1

During the unfolding of the TMap for VS2010 process template, several pre-defined work items are created for the test organization. These work items helps the test organization to start structured test process with a Master Test Plan. When starting a testing effort first several things needs to be in place… we need to understand the assignment, determine what we are going to test what are the risks, etc… the first four steps in the image below. Beside these steps also decisions needs to be taken about what to test where, you don’t want to loose money by testing things twice. As described in the TMap Next book: The type of system and/or development approach and/or test policy determ... [More]

TMap for VS2010 Testing Process Template RC published on Codeplex.

A bit later as planned, due to my broken leg. Just checked in the RC version of the TMap for VS2010 process template… Downloaded it from TMap.Codeplex.com. Still a lot of work to do, specially on the documentation and reporting part [lucky me, my colleagues from Sogeti US, Sweden and other Sogeti countries are helping me]. But still, the documentation section is a very good starting point when you want to discover the TMap processes for VS2010. Later this week I will post some more content.
