The TestCodeChanges add-in for Microsoft Visual Studio lets you access scripts
that test changes you have just made to the source code of a Visual Basic or
Visual C++ AUT from within Visual Studio.
After you set it up and load it in your Visual Studio development environment,
TestCodeChanges does the following:
Tracks all changes that you make to the source code of the AUT.
Gives you access to all of the scripts in the project that exercise the changed code.
Displays the code coverage values for scripts that touch changed source
Lets you filter changed code files based on the calendar dates that the source code
Lets you create a regression suite of scripts, which you can then run from your
Visual Studio development environment to test changed files.
After testing, automatically displays script run results.
