Test Architect for Visual Studio Released

In collaboration with Microsoft, LogiGear developed TestArchitect for Visual Studio, a keyword-driven automation platform exclusively as a Visual Studio extension for efficient large-scale test automation. TestArchitect for Visual Studio uses module-based keyword test authoring to automate coded UI tests in Visual Studio 2012. Keyword-based test automation allows more team members to be involved in test design and execution. This dovetails with the direction of Visual Studio as a team collaboration and ALM tool. By encapsulating elements of the automation in keywords, the technique offers a natural way to eliminate unneeded details from test design to simplify test creation and makes large-scale tests long-term maintainable.

TestArchitect for Visual Studio is now available for anyone using the Ultimate or Premium versions of Visual Studio 2012. You can request a trial of TestArchitect for Visual Studio by going to www.testarchitect.com.
