Microsoft Web Test Management & Runner coming to a browser near you

The most exciting part of the ALM Summit was when Brian Harry announced that they were releasing Web Test Management and Runner.  It was a great moment when the audience clapped for joy!!

This is currently in CTP(Consumer Test Preview) for TFS 2012, but here's the sneak peak.  Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the genius simplicity to connect to a web based app and get some serious work done.

The Test Plan and Test Run menus are co-located - this is what super tester's need to be efficient!

Double-click to edit the Test Case work item or right mouse click to Open Test Case.

The Test Runner displays all actions/expected results so that you can execute and Pass/Fail test steps.

I love that the Test Runner automatically uses my test steps to create the bug and also indicates the failure point in red (for those developers who don't read thru the entire bug - you know who you are).  Just enter a Title, Assign it to a developer to fix it, select Severity and Save.

Take a look at all the testing that has been completed and give yourself a pat on the back!

Stay tuned more to come!
