Product description


“Jeff Levinson has written a remarkable book. Remarkable because it distills a massive amount of information into a clear, readable book that will teach you how to best use the Visual Studio 2010 Testing Tools. Remarkable because it shows not just how to use the strengths of the tools, but also how to work around any of their weaknesses. Remarkable because Jeff walks you through the implementation strategies that can bring real business value, not just to the testing team, but also to test the entire organization. If you are implementing the test tools, this book belongs on your desk. My dog-eared and marked-up copy sits on mine.”

–Steven Borg, Owner, Northwest Cadence


“Testing–and testers–don’t get enough respect. By providing a great mix of the what, why, and how of testing with Visual Studio 2010, this book will help change that. More important, it will help make the software we use better.”

–David Chappell, Principal, Chappell & Associates


“Jeff has once again written a great book, filled with nice nuggets of testing wisdom. A great addition to your testing and ALM library for anyone using Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010.”

–Mickey Gousset, Microsoft ALM MVP and Senior Technical Developer, Infront Consulting Group


“Jeff’s book is by far the most in-depth investigation of the Test features in Visual Studio ALM I have seen. His insight and experience help the readers understand the impact of poor testing and how they can improve the quality of their software. I particularly liked the obvious real-world understanding of the realities of software testing when applied in practice and the effort by the author to show the readers the ways around those realities.”

–Martin Hinshelwood, Visual Studio ALM MVP and Visual Studio ALM Ranger


“Software Testing defines much more than the usage of a testing tool; it shows the practical way in which we test at Microsoft Corporation. Additionally, this book provides the definitive process to using Microsoft Test Manager with the rigor that we test here at Microsoft.”

–Randy Miller, ALM Architect, Microsoft


“Jeff provides the rare combination of deep, insider knowledge of Microsoft’s 2010 testing tools coupled with pragmatic details about how to plan, manage, and execute testing in the real world.”

–Mark Mydland, Director of Test, Visual Studio Ultimate, Microsoft


“With Jeff’s extensive knowledge with Microsoft’s ALM offering, this book will get you started on the right track with all the new testing capabilities offered by the Visual Studio 2010 suite. Whether you are a new or veteran tester, the personal insights the author brings to the testing topic are very interesting and useful….”

–Etienne Tremblay, Microsoft ALM MVP

From the Back Cover

Use Visual Studio 2010’s Breakthrough Testing Tools to Improve Quality Throughout the Entire Software Lifecycle


Together, Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, Visual Studio Test Professional 2010, Lab Management 2010, and Team Foundation Server offer Microsoft developers the most sophisticated, well-integrated testing solution they’ve ever had. Now, Microsoft MVP and VS testing guru Jeff Levinson shows exactly how to use Microsoft’s new tools to save time, reduce costs, and improve quality throughout the entire development lifecycle.


Jeff demonstrates how Microsoft’s new tools can help you finally overcome long-standing communication, coordination, and management challenges. You’ll discover how to perform first-rate functional testing; quickly create and execute tests and record the results with log files and video; and create bugs directly from tests, ensuring reproducibility and eliminating wasted time. Levinson offers in-depth coverage of Microsoft’s powerful new testing metrics, helping you ensure traceability all the way from requirements through finished software.


Coverage includes


•    Planning your tests using Microsoft Test Manager (MTM)

•    Creating test settings, structuring test cases, and managing the testing process

•    Executing manual tests with Microsoft Test Manager and Test Runner

•    Filing and resolving bugs, and customizing your bug reporting process

•    Automating test cases and linking automated tests with requirements

•    Executing automated test cases through both Visual Studio and Microsoft Test Manager

•    Integrating automated testing into the build process

•    Using Microsoft’s Lab Management virtualization platform to test applications, snapshot environments, and reproduce bugs

•    Implementing detailed metrics for evaluating quality and identifying improvements


Whether you’re a developer, tester, manager, or analyst, this book can help you significantly improve the way you work and the results you deliver–both as an individual right now, and as a team member throughout your entire project.
