General Information

You can use Visual Studio Ultimate 2010 or higher or Visual Studio Premium to create automated tests of the user interface (UI) known as coded UI tests. These tests provide functional testing of the user interface and validation of user interface controls. Automated UI tests enable you to test that the user interface is functioning correctly after code changes. They are quicker to run than manual tests. Therefore, you can run them more frequently.

  • Programming languages supported: C# and
  • Support multiple test types such as:
    • Coded UI Test also known as Functional testing
    • Unit Test
    • Web Performance test
    • Load Test
    • Ordered Test
  • Silverlight, Visual Fox Pro applications and web controls are supported
  • Have UI Map technology/repository to store its testing objects (complicated to handle)
  • VSTS IDE, strong debuger
  • Integrate with Test Management and Test Agent for Ditributed testing
  • Integrate with TFS (Team Foundation Server) for code management and test case management

so VSTS is good for QA methods (functional testing with test management) and for R&D purposes, unit testing and great IDE to work with
