Compuware To Ship Development Tool for Visual Studio

Compuware will begin shipping an updated development tool next week that aims to help application development groups produce better code and achieve higher productivity, the company announced at Microsoft's TechEd 2006 conference in Boston.

DevPartner Studio 8.1 adds work-item integration with Microsoft Visual Studio Team (VSTS) Foundation Server, an embeddable data collection agent to help solve configuration issues, and automated enforcement of .NET coding standards and best practices, according to statements by Detroit-based Compuware.

The company's application delivery products are designed to help developers build, test and manage high-quality applications using Microsoft technologies.

With version 8.1, DevPartner studio gives development and testing teams the ability to submit defect work items from DevPartner Studio directly to Team Foundation Server. Additionally, the Studio System Comparison Facility helps identify configuration issues in deployed applications.

Data collection functionality can now be embedded in production applications, royalty free, with the new Snapshot Software Development Kit, the company said. It also features new customizable code analysis sessions capabilities, as well as enhanced support for customized coding standards.

Compuware's DevPartner Studio 8.1 starts at $2,300 per seat. It is scheduled to be available for download on Monday.
