TestDirector vs Visual Studio Team System Test edi
For a certain project in my company the project manager would like to use Visual Studio Team system Test Edition for testing purposes instead of TestDirector.
According to his information it's also possible in VSTS to:
- define requirements
- create functional test cases
- run tests
- log defects
but .... I always worked with TD so I&#8217;m familiar with it and it's a good testing tool.
Does anyone has another opinion. What's better to use: TD or VSTS
Re: TestDirector vs Visual Studio Team System Test edi
Replying very late - anyways - should help in future.
Visual Studio Team Edition for Testers basically allows you to write tests in the development environment language. You can write (code) tests using full featured IDE similar to VS.net. They have added some test management features and its still in early days of evolution.
TD is basically a test management tool that helps you to "manage" your testing. Its not an automated test creation tool - you can write (manual) tests using TD and "import" automated scripts written in WR / QTP.
Now you have to take a call what does you project demand - automated test script creation and fast execution - like in agile mode. Along with this - do you have any coding skills available on your team - if yes, then VSTE for testers is a good option.
If you are looking at manual testing - functional based with black box testers - then TD (now Quality Center) is apt solution.
Hope this helps...
