Hi, my name is Duat Le and I am a Software Development Engineer (SDE) in Visual Studio Team Test. I joined Microsoft in 06/2007 after graduating from the University of Waterloo. In the past two and a half years, I have been working on the Test Management component for Visual Studio Team System 2010. We are now ready to ship our first version to the world.

I will start this blog by writing about our Test Management API 1.0 (from now on I will refer it as TCM OM) in the next several posts. This Client TCM OM is the public interface we have been building, along with the server and database parts of Test Management, so I am very excited to talk about it.

TCM OM is in this assembly: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.TestManagement.Client.dll. It is installed with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate or Visual Studio Test Elements 2010, and it serves as the entrance to the test management store in your Team Foundation Server.

My main focus will be how to use the TCM OM efficiently in case you want to write code to accomplish your custom tasks, create your own tools that suite your scenarios best, etc. I hope you will find helpful information in this blog to customize your testing needs. And if you have any question or need help on such topics, please do not hesitate to contact us.
