Integrated Test Tools
Visual Studio Team Edition for Testers
includes a suite of test tools that are
integrated closely with Microsoft Visual
Studio 2005; they work not only in their own
testing framework, but also within a larger
framework of software life cycle tools.
Developers and quality engineers can create,
manage, edit, and run tests, and also obtain
and store test results. Several test types,
including unit, Web, load, and manual tests,
in addition to the measurement of code
coverage, are integrated into Visual Studio.

Improved Quality
Because the testing tools are integrated with
the other parts of the Visual Studio Team
System, you can publish results to a
database, generate trend and historical
