This article looks at Web and Load Testing with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Edition for Software Testers. A common problem faced by companies looking to undertake software development is determining which tools to incorporate into their process. On the surface it sounds like an easy, perhaps even fun, task: to go shopping for cool new software that is going to make the project that much more productive. The challenge of selecting that tool, however, goes a little deeper than a quick visit to yo...

Face it. Producing high-quality software on-time and on-budget is still a very difficult thing to do. Why is that, anyway? Let's start by admitting that software development isn't just about the software developers. In fact, there are typically many other roles involved in software projects, and the way they work together will determine the success of the project. Project teams typically consist of Project Managers, Business Analysts, Application Architects, Developers, and Testers. Unfortunatel...

Numerous studies have been conducted and volumes of books have been written on how to improve the process of developing applications to yield better and more consistent results. The difficulty has never been in coming up with new and better ideas to develop software. Rather, the difficulty is in taking those ideas and implementing them in meaningful ways in the real world.

In just about two weeks, Microsoft will launch Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005, and BizTalk 2006. Consider a question about this launch. When will these products be released? Here is a hint that may help confuse you: The launch date is November 7th. Did you answer November 7th for the release date of the three products? If so, you score a 67% on accuracy. Although Visual Studio and SQL Server's new editions are expected to be released on the same date as the launch, BizTalk 2006 is not expec...

One of the more enjoyable projects a developer can create is a Windows Screen Saver. While this type of project is not generally mainstream, it provides a break from the normal day-to-day routines. Visual Studio 2005 endeavors to provide an easier method for the creation of screen savers by providing a special project category called a Starter Kit. By selecting a Screen Saver Starter Kit, a solution is created that includes the code needed to publish a screen saver of your own. To better underst...

I recently spoke at Whidbey Blast, a one-day, Visual Studio 2005 conference hosted by the Northern Colorado .NET Users Group. I did the keynote and a session about MSBuild, then sat in on some of the other sessions that covered a variety of upcoming technologies. One of the sessions was by Keith Brown, security guru and a fellow Visual Developer - Security MVP. He asked how many people develop or have developed partially trusted applications. Only one person — out of perhaps the 50 people in the...

The current code for the Composite UI Application Block is the first Community Technology Preview. As with any beta release, there could always be changes before the final version. The core design and concepts, however, are less likely to undergo any major changes, a...

Among other enhancements in Visual Studio.NET 2005, we now have the System.IO.Compression namespace, which offers industry standard Deflate ("zip") and GZip compression codecs. Since I've been somewhat involved in this area, particularly with the binary serialization and compression of DataSets for remoting over the wire, I thought it would be worthwhile to compare the new SerializationFormat.Binary enumeration on the DataSet class, which now enables DataSets to describe themselves to the Binary...

I did not experience any installation issues at all, installing the product on two separate machines, Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003. Just make sure you UNINSTALL everything relating to any previous CTP or Beta versions of the 2.0 Framework or VS.NET 2005 (Whidbey) first, including Device Emulator and MSDN Library. There appears to be no problem with existing version of VS.NET 2003 residing on the same machine. As before, the only thing to be aware about is the new ASP.NET tab in IIS, an...
