This is just a quick note to let you know that Brian Keller has updated his Virtual Machine for Visual Studio 2012 Update 2. There is a lot of interesting stuff that you might want to explore by downloading the VM (See the instructions below)
Oh, and don’t miss the SharePoint lab .. The Web & Load Testing enhancements are really awesome.
Downloading the virtual machine and labs:
I suggest using a download manager for these files since they are very large. My download manager of choice is Free Download Manager. You can use your own favorite download manager, but you may need to adapt the instructions below as appropriate.
1. Download and install Free Download Manager. This utility provides:
- Auto-resume support for interrupted downloads.
- Multiple simultaneous download streams for (usually) a much faster download experience.
- As the name implies, it's completely free.
2. Select the URL’s below and copy (CTRL+C) them to your clipboard.

In the video titled "Converting SharePoint Manual Tests to Automated Tests using Visual Studio 2012", we ended up converting the manual test case we created in the "Manual Testing for SharePoint using Microsoft Test Manager 2012" video to an Automated Test.
In today’s video, I'll show you how to execute the Automated Test from Microsoft Test Manager 2012 in the same way we executed a Manual Test. You can watch the video here.
When you run automated tests in Microsoft Test Manager, you must run them in a lab environment. To run automated tests in a lab environment, you must associate your automated tests with test cases, and then add the test cases to a test suite in a test plan.
Here are the steps performed in the video:
- Create a Virtual Test Lab for SharePoint using Microsoft Test Manager & Visual Studio 2012 Lab Management
- Build & Install the SharePoint application in the Testing Environment.
- Create new “Test Settings” (Data Collection & Diagnostic Data Adapters)
- Create a new Test Plan
- Configure the Test Plan (Test Settings & Test Environment)
- Add the Automated Test to the Test Plan.
- Create a Build Definition & Queue a new build.
- Assign the build to the Test Plan
- Run the automated Test Case from Microsoft Test Manager
- View & Analyze Results.

This video is part of the SharePoint Testing & Troubleshooting Arabic Video Series.
In today’s video, you will learn how to do Exploratory Testing for your SharePoint solutions using Microsoft Test Manager 2012. You will learn about how exploratory testing (also called XT, or agile testing) has become a first-class experience in the toolset. This allows a tester to more flexibly test the underlying SharePoint Application without relying solely on formal test cases. Meanwhile, Microsoft Test Manager will continue to capture rich diagnostics about the application being tested which can be delivered to the development team if a bug is discovered. You can watch the video from here.

Have you ever wondered how the Automated Test Cases get executed on remote environments in Visual Studio 2012 that smoothly? They just work and you don't have to copy the Automation DLLs to the remote machines.
For sure they get copied automatically somewhere, there is no magic here, but the question is where do they get copied ? The answer is in this video !
Oh, and the DLLs get deleted once the test is finished.
By the way, you won’t be able to run Automated Tests from Microsoft Test Manager unless you assign a Build to your Test Plan. This makes perfect sense, the Test Controller needs to know the Build Drop Folder from which it will copy the DLLs to the remote testing environment.

Happy new year! I wish you a fantastic 2013... May all your wishes come true; health, happiness, peace, fulfillment, prosperity .... all beautiful things to you, your families and loved ones, your countries, your people.
As the ‘SharePoint Practice Lead’ for MEA ALM Community and as promised during the official community launch, I’ve created a video series in Arabic to explain & demonstrate SharePoint Testing & Troubleshooting using Visual Studio 2012 & Microsoft Test Manager 2012. I’ve included all the videos in a YouTube playlist, you can access the list from here.
Here are also links to the videos that I created so far.
In the previous video (Manual Testing for SharePoint using Microsoft Test Manager 2012), I’ve showed you how you can author, run and replay manual tests for SharePoint using Microsoft Test Manager 2012. In today’s video, I’ll take this manual test a step further by converting it into a fully automated test using Coded UI Tests in Visual Studio 2012. You can watch the video here.

If you have been following my blog in December 2012, you have most probably felt my tendency to focus on SharePoint Testing & Troubleshooting. That’s true, it’s a green field that nobody is tackling nowadays and I believe it’s very important for enhancing the overall SharePoint Application lifecycle & delivery.
The new features and enhancements in Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 are really cool; now we can say that we have a complete ALM story for building SharePoint Solutions.
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know about my upcoming activities during the first Quarter of 2013.

If you missed the previous videos, please check http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZIOt6kostj3yAvgsvMtqBk0J4wX1FQQR&feature=view_all , I’ll be updating the list with the new videos once I create them.
In the previous two videos, I’ve showed you how to do Test Automation for SharePoint using Coded UI Tests in Visual Studio 2012 Premium or Ultimate. I’ve also showed you how to run your coded UI test multiple times with different sets of data to test different conditions “Data-driven Coded UI Tests”.
Today, I’ll tackle another area which is Manual testing. In today’s video, you will learn how to use Microsoft Test Manager 2012 to author a manual test case for your SharePoint Application and take advantage of test parameters. I will then run this test case using the Microsoft Test Runner against my SharePoint Application. While running this test case I will capture an action recording which can be used to take advantage of Fast Forward for Manual Testing, to quickly re-run test steps or even entire test cases in the future “Fast Forward for Manual Tests”. You can watch the video here.

In the previous post, I showed you through a video how to create Coded UI Tests for SharePoint using Visual Studio 2012 with specified data. But what if you want to run your coded UI test multiple times with different sets of data to test different conditions?
To do this you can add parameter values from a data source to create a data-driven coded UI test. Each row in the data source is an iteration of the coded UI test. The overall result of the test will be based on the outcome for all the iterations. For example, if one test iteration fails, the overall test result is failure.
I have created another video (in Arabic) to show you the whole process of creating Data-Driven Coded UI Tests for SharePoint. you can watch the video here ( http://youtu.be/wG7o0SaGndg ).
