Azure Cloud Application Testing 101

Windows Azure provides cloud services which allow developers to develop and deploy innovative apps, while saving time, effort and money that would otherwise be spent on hardware and support. Once an application has been created, developers are able to use Visual Studio's local Azure Development and Storage Emulator to test the apps.

By unit-testing an Azure app with Visual Studio's MSTEST framework, applications can be tested without the need to actually deploy the app. Developers should also write integration tests for their Azure apps. MSTEST can be used to create such tests. Finally, test teams should utilize the Microsoft Test Manager Tool, which ships with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, to finalize and manually test their app. Additionally, Visual Studio 2010's Coded UI Test can be used for automated functionality UI testing.
