Overview

Introduction

The Define Test Automation Strategies module provides you with the instructions and devices to develop your hands on skills in the following topics.

  • Using the Code Coverage Feature
  • Using IntelliTrace to Record and Trace an Application's Code Execution History
  • Debugging from IntelliTrace Log File
  • Using the IntelliTrace Stand-alone Collector

Exercise 1 - Using the Code Coverage Feature

The code coverage feature in Visual Studio helps you to determine the proportion of your project's code that is actually being tested by coded tests such as Coded UI tests and unit tests. In this exercise, you will use the code coverage feature to determine the proportion of the code that a Coded UI tests cover.

Exercise 2 - Debugging from IntelliTrace Log File

When you start debugging from an IntelliTrace log file, you can go to specific points in your application's execution. In this task, you will start debugging from IntelliTrace log file (.iTrace)

Exercise 3 - Using the IntelliTrace Stand-alone Collector

The IntelliTrace stand-alone collector lets you collect IntelliTrace diagnostic data for your apps on production servers or other environments without installing Visual Studio on the target machine and without changing the target system's environment.

In this exercise, you will install IntelliTrace stand-alone collector in PLABCLNT01.
