בימים האחרונים אנחנו עדים לעדכונים רבים וטוב שכך זה רק מראה על עבודה מאומצת מצד מיקרוסופט כדי לספק לנו את המערכת האופטימלית עבורנו.והפעם חדשות לא טובות: מיקרוסופט הכריזו שהם נסוגים מלהתאים את TFS 2010 לתמיכה ב – SQL Server 2012 בשל ריבוי השינויים במוצר החדש.כדי לעבוד עם SQL Server 2012 יש לשדרג את ה – TFS לגרסת ה – 2012. תיהנו!!!
This post is the Second post out of Four that builds the Visual Studio 2010 Coded UI Test User Guide. See the first post: “Visual Studio 2010 Coded UI Test User Guide - Introduction”
On this post I will show how to create a simple Coded UI Test.
The example I will use in this guide created by Microsoft and is called: “IBuySpay”
The example is a web application but we will use its GUI in the Coded UI Test.
A few guide lines before we start:
To create a test you need to have a Test Project
Base every Automated Test on a predefined...
I know some of you are waiting for it and now it is finally here: The Team Explorer 2005 extensibility patch for TFS 2010.
Download it from the following URL:
I think that the connection to the server user experience will be the same as the Visual Studio 2008 user experience.
Refer to my post: “How To Connect To The TFS 2010 With Team Explorer 2008” for how to connect.
I did not test it, simply because I don’t use Visual Studio 2005 any more so if someone tried it and can share his experience please comment to this post.
I have been asked that question almost in each project I am doing.
The answer is very simple: with SharePoint.
When I give this answer I get a curious look, and the following question will be: “Why?”
SharePoint is a huge product that does many wonderful things, in this post I like to show how it can help us manage our documents.
First thing that you will need to know is that when you create a Team Project you also create a SharePoint site, actually what you create is Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) site which is a free edition of SharePoint.
In each site...
In TFS 2008 the Web Access was a different installation and it came as a Power Tool to the TFS.
In TFS 2010 the Web Access is installed automatically and is part of the TFS.
In order to get to the Web Access in TFS 2010 do the following:
In your preferred browser type:
YourServerName is the tfs name for example: http://tfs-srv:8080/tfs/web/
Or you can get to it from the Team Project SharePoint Site:
In Visual Studio 2010 Microsoft has added the Coded UI Test.
Back to history:
In Visual Studio 2005 Microsoft presented the Tester Edition, it contained the following parts:
Web Test Automation Test
Something that should have been a Manual Test, it was word or text documents contained the Test Cases. Practically no one used it.
In Visual Studio 2008 tester edition no significant changes has been made.
In Visual Studio 2010 Microsoft added more parts to the Tester Edition and created a new tool for the Tester called Microsoft Test and Lab Management (MTLM).
I will not get into all...
Many customers ask me about deleting Work Items from the TFS.
Here is how to do it for TFS 2010:
Step 1: Log-in to the TFS using a TFS administrator user.
Step 2: Open a command line and go to:
32bit machine - “X:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common 7\IDE” 64bit machine - “X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common 7\IDE”
Step 3: Use the “witadmin.exe destroywi” command in the following way:
witadmin.exe destroywi /Collection:http:\\:8080\tfs\ /id:
you can add as many Work Item IDs as you like using for example 54,88,92 etc.
You can disable the prompt message by using /noprompt.
For deleting work items in TFS 2008...

You will need to use the Server RC and the Client RC as well
The Power tools for the RC...
Many users don’t like to work with the Visual Studio 2010 because it is still a Beta or just because they are not ready to upgrade there Visual Studio yet but still they like to use the TFS 2010.
