I’m excited to share the new navigation we’re working on for Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) to modernize the user experience and give you more flexibility. As Lori mentioned in her blog post, our goal to create an integrated suite that also gives the flexibly to pick and choose the services that work best for you.
We often get asked how to do CI/CD for IoT apps using Win10 IoT Core. If you’ve been considering or using Win10 IoT Core, then read on.
The Visual Studio Test Platform that ships with Visual Studio 15.6 RTW now supports Testing on Win10 IoT Core.
MSTest V2 v1.3.0 Beta2 now supports in-assembly parallel execution of tests – the top most requested/commented issue on the testfx repo.
The feature can dramatically reduce the total time taken to execute a suite of tests. To get started, install the framework and adapter from NuGet.
As you are already aware, we announced the plan for deprecating XAML builds sometime back.
TFS 2018 RC1 is now available and with that XAML builds are no longer supported. Consequently, Lab Management and automated testing capabilities in Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) are no longer supported starting from TFS 2018 RC1.
MSTest V2 has crossed 1 Million downloads. Congratulations! Hats off to the community! MSTest V2 is seeing robust usage. We ourselves use it heavily. If you are still using an earlier version of the MSTest framework, we encourage you to upgrade.
Having executed a test – at a minimum – we want to know the outcome. But beyond that, we may want to know more. Data collectors and loggers are the key extension mechanisms intended to provide this and other such details for rich reporting.
Updating off pre-RTM bits once RTM ships ought to be routine. But if you have not already done so in the case of the .NET Core based Test projects, let me give you a reason to do so.
vstest delegates discovery and execution of tests to test-framework-specific adapters.
Essential to TIA’s test selection is the map of dynamic dependencies between test methods and source files of code exercised during their execution. TIA needs dependencies mapped in this form:
TIA can generate such a dependencies-map for managed code execution.
APIs are assets. As developers we learn them, write to them, and – if the API are extensible – we grow them. An extensible API removes barriers to introducing new abstractions closer to our own domains. Once such abstractions are in place,
Deploy Visual Studio Test Agent (DTA) task in TFS/VSTS, is used for setting up Test Agent (TA) on multiple machines to run functional tests. Image below describes the functionality of the task and present reboot cases:
DTA Task & need of Auto-logon
To run UI tests that interact with desktop,
