Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 is a platform for productive, integrated, and extensible software development life-cycle tools that helps software teams by improving communication and collaboration throughout the software development process.
Visual Studio Team System Test Edition includes a suite of test tools that are integrated closely with Visual Studio; they work not only in their own testing framework, but also within a larger framework of software life cycle tools.
Test Edition lets you create, manage, edit, and run tests, and also obtain and store test results. Several test types, including unit, Web, load, and manual tests, are integrated into Visual Studio. In addition, the measurement of code coverage is included.
You run tests by using the Visual Studio IDE. Additionally, you can run groups of tests or any single test other than the manual test type from a command line.
Because the testing tools are integrated with the other parts of the Visual Studio Team System, you can publish results to a database, generate trend and historical reports, compare different kinds of data, and see how many and which bugs were found because of testing.
