- Customize your workspace-Writing application code often requires having numerous designers and editors open at once. Visual Studio 2010 Professional helps you organize your digital environment with support for multi-monitor, which makes it easier to manage the way you work.
- Create collaboration solutions on SharePoint-Bring customized collaboration tools to your company by taking advantage of new support for SharePoint development, including tooling for Web parts, lists, workflows, events, and more.
- Build applications in Windows 7-Visual Studio 2010 Professional comes with built-in tools for Windows 7 development, including multi-touch and "ribbon" UI components that put you at the forefront of Windows 7 technology.
- Easily create RIA and WPF applications-New drag-and-drop data binding in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight designers make building Windows and Rich Internet Applications (RIA) easy and fast, for both designers and developers.
- Simplify Web application deployment-Move your Web applications into a production environment with a single click. Visual Studio 2010 Professional transfers your code, Internet Information Server (IIS) settings, and database schema to your target server.
Top Ten Reasons to Have Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate:
- IntelliTraceTM Eliminates 'No Repro'--Easily step through code that was previously executed on the same or another machine in order to identify what happened during the code execution and significantly cut down on time spent reproducing a bug.
- Understand Existing Architectures--The Architecture Explorer and UML sequence diagrams help you explore and understand your existing code assets and their inter-dependencies.
- Ensure Architectural Compliance--Use layer diagraming to define and communicate logical application architecture and optionally enforce architecture rules with check-in policies as code is created.
- Profile Application Performance--Measure the performance of your applications and locate performance bottlenecks in CPU utilisation, memory consumption, database interactions, Jscript/Ajax call patterns and concurrency synchronisation. Use the performance profiler in conjunction with Load Testing to identify performance bottlenecks under stress and load.
- Discover Common Coding Errors--Code Analysis is now simple to configure with customisable rule sets that can be targeted at specific scenarios or areas of emphasis. Enforce rule sets with the code analysis check-in policy to reduce common coding errors in application or database code before they get into production.
- Prototype User Interface Ideas Quickly--By using SketchFlow in Expression Studio you can quickly deliver a functioning prototype that looks and feels like handwritten mockups.
- Build Collaboration Solutions on Microsoft SharePoint--New support for SharePoint development, including tooling for Web Parts, Lists, Workflows, and Events and more, so you can bring great new customised collaboration tools to your company.
- Automate User Interface Testing--Use Coded User Interface Tests to automate the testing of UI elements in your applications. Visual Studio 2010 automatically generates test code that can be executed manually or incorporated as part of your build process to automate UI regression testing.
- Create, Manage and Execute Tests--Test and Lab Manager lets you easily define your testing effort for a specific iteration in your project, run manual tests and measure your progress. In addition to creating and managing test assets like plans, suites and test cases you can also create and manage virtual lab configurations for your test environments.
- MSDN Subscription--MSDN Subscriptions are a convenient way to cost-effectively develop applications on the Microsoft platform with a simple licensing model and broad high quality information resources.
Eliminate 'no repro' with IntelliTrace: The new IntelliTrace feature makes the "no-repro" discussion a thing of the past. Testers can file rich and actionable bugs with system information, and even include an environment snapshot. That way developers can reproduce the reported bug in the state it was found.
Understand existing architecture: The Architecture Explorer helps you understand and unleash the value of your existing code assets and their inter-dependencies. You can produce detailed models of exactly how an application is constructed and even drill-down into specific areas for a deeper understanding.
Ensure architectural compliance: Use the new layer diagram to define and communicate logical application architecture and to validate code artifacts against the required architecture. Layer diagrams help your development efforts stay on track so your application conforms to your original vision.
Embrace Manual Testing: Visual Studio Test Professional 2010, part of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, provides you with a single tool to capture and update test requirements, automate navigation of manual tests, and speed up the fix and accept cycle by capturing the entire test context. This provides developers with everything they need to ensure that every error is reproducible.Be proactive about agile project management: Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate is optimized for today's iterative development process with features that help you remain productive and react to potential risks before they happen. You can monitor the health of your project using reports that are automatically generated. Plus manage your project's capacity with historical data and Microsoft Excel-based planning documents.
