Again, after the announcement at the the ALM Summit, I am covering one of the new features introduced with the release of the CTP of Update 2, which is going to add these on-premise, but if you are a Team Foundation Service user the update has already been enabled by setting the right feature flag
Enabling Test Case Management on the cloud is not just a matter of technology. As you can imagine, it opens up a broad range of possibilities for testing, because you’re not that deeply tied to Test Manager for the QA tasks but you can freely use the web interface.
I can add test cases just like in MTM!
Please notice: these test cases are already integrated with the new Tags system.
Then I can run my test cases, a side window opens just like in MTM:
As you could see, the whole execution lifecycle is now accessible via web. Think about this scenario: you have to test a piece of code you run on a HP Supedome [HP-UX so, a mainframe] and you obviously can’t install MTM on it. The user doesn’t know MTM and doesn’t need it, as Web TCM solves this and not only, of course.
