There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult. -- C.A.R. Hoare

Ever wondered how to do the branching and looping in a web test. Until VS 2008, this is possible only by creating coded web tests and work through your logic
But with VS 2010, it comes out of the box as Chirs explains.

I have been working on a new build process using TFS 2008 and VS 2008 and were setting up a new build server and were researching whether I could run web tests in the build PC as part of build verification test without installing the Visual Studio test edition. Looks like it is possible with VS 2010 and all you need is VS Team Agent which is a lightweight component running on your build server.
Here is the article, clearly explaining how to go about it.

Brain has done a wonderful job on creating a blog on the key developments/architectural changes in TFS 2010. Worth reading. Even better the comment section (though it is real long!!). I was hoping for branched history for a given file in TFS 2010 but it looks like it is still missing. I guess we have to live with Power tools until it comes out:(
