ALM , VS2010
Played today with CommunityClips from Microsoft Office Labs...
I made a video from some work [in progress] with Rosario Team Architect and Team Test.
Actually, it was just meant to be for internal use only, but why not share it... [I'm so 2.0 ]
These posts have some more additional information:
Rosario - Activity Diagrams, TestCases and Camano
Testing in the Lifecycle [ALM]... a focus on automation
and these on Rob Kuijt's blog:
Test cases directly generated from Activity Diagrams!
Test cases generated from Activity Diagrams part II
and this one: TMap Testing Use Cases
It wasn't ... [More]
Another video on MSDN about Team Architect from Richard Hundhausen... this time the video covers the Architecture Edition Power Toys.
three comments on the video:
Hurray we get support for class libraries [00:00:34]. I'm not a big fan of having class libraries on the application diagram. when you make a serious project, you get a lot of shapes which don't add any value to the diagram [see image, also testprojects will show up in the diagram] and class libraries don't belong at application level [see Bill Gibson's post about this, TN_1105- Why Class Libraries are not shown on an Application Diagram]

What is OSLO?
Making a new class of model-driven and service-enabled applications mainstream.
Deliver a world class and mainstream modeling platform that helps the roles of IT collaborate and enables better integration between IT and the business. The modeling platform enables higher level description... [More]
When looking at all the available Testing Tools [for automation] and Test-Management Tools [for control]. You can conclude that there is a lot of help for automation and monitoring of testing, but not really helpful in the ALM.
ALM and Automation.
One of the important parts of ALM is the connection between the different lifecycle tools. For example, design artifacts can / must work together with coding tools, they must give the developer a kind of skeleton and give boundaries within they can start building the solution [ the application diagram together with the service factory for example].
Forrester describes ALM in this paper [The Changing Face Of Application Life-Cycle Managem... [More]
