I have posted about the “Microsoft Test and Lab Management” (MTLB) first when the Beta 1 was introduced.
In this post I will show the changes made since Beta 1, you can read my post here.
The menu in Beta 1 was this:
In Beta 2 you can only find 2 sections:
The Organize section is now part of the Testing Center sub menus.
lets take a peek at the sub menus in the Beta 2:
If you will compare that to Beta 1 you will see that the same functionality and menus stayed the same but is reorganized in the...
Finally it was released…
The “Team System Work Items Basic User Guide” was released and can be downloaded from the codeplex project: “Team System Guides”
The guide can educate new and advanced users to better use the Work Items section.
I have already started to work on “TFS 2010 Work Items Basic User Guide” and I will start publish its parts very soon in my personal blog.
I have started to work on a Quick Guide for the “Microsoft Test And Lab Management” after a lot of users that likes to understand and try the tool.
The quick guide is posted in my personal blog here and will be spread on a few posts where the first one is published here.
There is also an introduction post here that can give a good idea on what this tool can do.
The quick guide will be published in the “Team System Guides” codeplex site here when finished, I will post on that too.
With the Team System 2010 Beta 1 the Manual Testers have received a great tool called “Microsoft Test And Lab Management”.
Every Microsoft tool has its code name and the “Microsoft Test And Lab Management is no different, the code name for this tool is “Camano”.
In this post I will give a brief overview of the tool, I will not show all the functionality of the tool in order to keep the post short and readable.
The tool is built of three main sections:
1. Testing Center – In this section the user can see the Test Plans, Run the Test...
This morning when I worked with the Team Build 2010 Beta 1 I found a very nice surprise.
I work a lot with the Team Build and when I have a problem with the build I go to the log file, some of you that have encountered this “Monster” log file know that it is a “killer” for the eyeballs, it is a very long notepad file that lists all the steps made by the build engine and all the errors it has encountered.
You can see very short example of such a log at the end of this post.
Before I start with the how to create a branch step by step guide, I like to remind that creating a branch should be done by a SCM (Software Configuration Management) plan and not when ever you “feel” like creating a branch. It is very important to manage your branches or else you will have a big pile of branches that no one knows there purpose.
After saying that here is the step by step guide:
The demonstration will be for a demo project called "Web Sites".
Step 1: Right click the source folder that is candidate for Branch.
Step 2: Choose the...
A project I am doing these days requires me to get file history changesets using the API.
Sounds like a simple task right?
Apparently there is not a lot of reference to that in Google, so after almost throwing my computer out of the window (More than once I most admit) I found the answer.
Add the following references to your using list:using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client; using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client;using System.Collections;using System.Windows.Forms;
The example function is very simple it gets a change and shows message boxes of all the changesets that have a change for the specified file up to the change transferred to the method.
I am happy to announce a new Codeplex project that gathers Team System guides both for Team System 2008 and for Team System 2010.
You can see the site here.
All guides are in word or PDF formats so you can download and print them.
There is a great MSDN site that gathers all the information and feedbacks for the Team System 2010 and the .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 version.
You can get all the downloads, installations instructions, walkthroughs and more all in this site.
you can find the site in the following URL: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dd582936.aspx
Many people using the Source Control of the Team System don’t really understand how do Get Latest Version works.
Customers calls me in the middle of the night telling me that they have lost files and lost changes, after the shuck is over I ask them what they did, they tell me: “I did Get Latest Version and I don’t see the files or the changes”.
Because that I am tired of getting to customers in the middle of the night I decided to write this post explaining how does it work.
Lets start with that the Get Latest Version is not...
