I'm researching this tool for my company. It seems we may want to use this product - even if it does not really do "QA" kind of tasks, but does do "developer" tasks before delivery to QA! So, I need to know a few things.
1. They mention code coverage, but I can only find references to code coverage when used in conjunction with unit testing.
Can I get code coverage while running QuickTest Pro tests?
2. Can I get code coverage using the load test portion of this tool?
3. Can the tool read from a file (usernames/passwords) assign to virtual users and have them logon to the application and do testing of use cases?
4. I like the way Silk Performer sets up for load testing.
Does VSTS allow scripting of the tests, variable substitutions, etc.?
VSTS Code Coverage is turned on when setting up a project in the test configuration file and will produce code coverage results on all your test runs. Web, Load, Manual, Ordered, Generic.
The same process works for the Development project(unit testing). Did you know that you can merge code coverage results. If QA and Dev set up code coverage on all testing you can later merge them together.
What better way to know where testing is at, whats left to do, what percentage of all the code has been tested.
Since you are a SilkPerformer fan, you may want to explore SilkCentral Test Manager. We "married" code coverage technology (java-only right now) that Borland had (re-purposing OptmizeIT, if you know about that product) with test management in our last release and we've always supported unit testing. Now you can apply code coverage info to any test - unit, functional (manual or auto) or performance. This "code-to-test" alignment helps greatly with prioritization and impact analysis.
In load testing analyzer, Counters related to Application server and SQL server are not displayed. EVen it does not displayed in Computers. Wheras i have addedthem while create script for load testing.
