Microsoft Visual Studio includes tools and technologies for all members of software development teams: project architects, developers, managers and, of course, testers. TestComplete can integrate with these tools giving your Quality Assurance team the ability to:

  • Run unit tests created with Visual Studio as part of your TestComplete projects:

  • Run TestComplete tests directly from your MSBuild projects:

    XML

    <!-- File: MSBUILD.proj -->

    <Project DefaultTargets="Build"
      xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003">
     
      <!-- Declares the task type that will run TestComplete projects--> 
      <UsingTask TaskName="TC14.ExecuteSolution" AssemblyName= "MSBuildTC14Task, Version=1.1.0.0,
    Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=e33f56e68d0f845e"/>

     …

    </Project>

  • Include your TestComplete tests into your Visual Studio test projects and run them locally the same way you run Visual Studio native tests (like unit tests):

  • Integrate TestComplete tests into your team projects managed with Azure DevOps or Team Foundation Server. To learn more about it, see Integration With Azure DevOps and Team Foundation Server.

In other words, you can mix tests created in both products and make your testing flexible and powerful.
