I read with interest this morning, Sean Lumley’s blog post entitled “Enhanced web test support in Fiddler“. I have had my fair share of headaches recording web tests using VSTS and I have known for a while that Fiddler is your friend. The ability to save Fiddler tests in the VSTS .webtest format is fantastic. After reading Sean’s post I know that has never been more true than now with the updates to version 22.214.171.124.
Some of the new features (from Sean’s blog) include;
- Ability to filter out dependent requests
- Only first request in a redirect chain will be saved.
- Automatic correlation of view state and event validation fields
- Plug-in architecture that allows you to write your own custom code that can change how a web test is saved.
