Visual Studio Test Professional 2013 is a comprehensive solution that integrates quality throughout the application lifecycle. Take advantage of application lifecycle management (ALM) tools on-site or in the cloud to keep your team focused. Support for manual and automated testing ensures that you can do thorough testing so you can deliver quality consumer and business applications that exceed your customers’ expectations.
Use Microsoft Test Manager to create, manage, execute, and track test plans, test suites, and test cases that validate acceptance criteria. Link test cases to automated tests (e.g., unit tests, coded UI tests, web tests, load tests) to get an end-to-end view of tests.
Non-developer team members can use Test Professional 2013 to take advantage of Visual Studio without using the full IDE. Accurately capture lightweight requirements with storyboarding and then request and capture feedback throughout development.
Test Impact collector improves productivity by identifying which tests to rerun after code changes. Perform ad-hoc exploratory testing with the same rich functionality as an up-front test plan to detect potential issues from unexpected usage before end users do.
Running test cases records tester actions and captures rich system and event information. On failure, comments can be added and bugs quickly created with pre-populated information. Testing efforts are easily tracked with a test-run analysis that shows the state of each test case and a visual test-result summary by test suite.
Load-management tooling offered on-site or in the cloud lets testers observe how their product performs under continuous load. Author and run performance and load tests against web applications and services to validate the application's ability to scale to usage thresholds that must be supported.
