I work for E&D systems Test team. We have been working towards building test automation framework for E&D projects. In our quest to build reliable test automation we were in the process of evaluating several tools to achieve our larger objective of faster , better and cheaper ways of providing business solutions. That's when VSTS 2010 happened as one stop shop for all automation requirements
We walked across to IDC VSTT team and offered to dog food VSTS 2010 for our projects.
Following features of VSTS 2010 (MTR and Camano) are quite interesting to try out. I am sure you will love it :-)
1. Manual Test Runner (MTR) - a record and playback of web controls with human interaction helping us to automate the UI test cases which drastically reduced the time spent invested in Regression testing.
2. MTR also helps to create a detailed bug report (records tester's own actions, video of the tester's desktop during execution, and a historical debug log with details of the execution)
3. Test case management works better with introduction of Microsoft Test Manager (code name: Camano):
While we used the tool, we came up interesting bugs and feature feedback to further enhance the product. Excited to be a part of VSTT TAP program as we are among few folks who get into know all latest cool features of VSTS 2010 first :-)
When VSTS 2010 is released worldwide, we are definitely more ready and look forward to its successful launch to Microsoft customers!!!
