Who is Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise Edition for?
The Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise Edition is intended for professional developers who also want to develop applications for desktop, mobile and web together with other employees and use their extensive possibilities for code analysis and correction. Visual Studio 2017 offers the advantage here that the version also supports Windows 7; thanks to the space-saving installation, the software can also be used on older end devices, which expands the scope of applications.
The Visual Studio 2017 Edition available from Wiresoft Enterprise Edition, which is available from Wiresoft as used software, offers developers the opportunity to acquire all the benefits of the proven Microsoft software without the usual subscription and instead in the form of a purchase version as a single license. In the Wiresoft Software online store you can find beside this Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise Edition, you will also find other editions or versions as well as Microsoft programs compatible with it, such as Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10, which is a prerequisite for the use of certain features. The following overview shows the most important optimizations and exclusive features of Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise.
Exclusive features in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
The Enterprise edition of Visual Studio 2017 is intended for developers with higher expectations, who especially need effective features in testing and debugging, including:
Live Unit Testing for Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
Early detection as well as elimination of errors in code is one of the important standard tasks in programming. Live Unit Testing makes it possible to change or redesign code even more safely. The feature is exclusive to the Enterprise Edition for projects in C# and Visual Basic that are based on .NET Core and .NET Framework, respectively. Even as a developer modifies code, Live Unit Testing automatically runs unit tests in real time, indicating whether they adequately cover the code, while also ensuring that potential changes do not cause regressions. Code coverage with Live Unit Testing is displayed graphically in real time so that users can immediately see whether and how many lines of code are covered by the tests; the feature also includes the following additions and optimizations in the 2017 Edition:
- Already when opening a solution, it is displayed whether the Live Unit Testing feature is enabled or disabled.
- By integrating the Live Unit Testing feature into the Visual Studio Taskcenter, an indication is now given there whether it is enabled.
- Live Unit Testing in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise now also supports frequently used frameworks such as xUnit, NUnit and MSTest.
- Integrated support for .NET Core and .NET Standard has been added to Standard solution in C# or Visual Basic.
- Tests can be debugged within the execution context in the UI window without the need to leave the code editor.
- The newly introduced beaker icon is used to distinguish the different live unit test methods.
- Renaming the "Live Test Set - Include/Exclude" feature to "Live Unit Testing - Include/Exclude" also eliminates comprehension problems known from the previous version when using it.
IntelliTrace for Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
IntelliTrace is especially designed for the C#, C++ and Visual Basic languages for time-saving capture and tracing of code execution history. Among other things, it can be used to
especially the step-back debugging, which was only available for C# in the previous version, is now also available for C++. With the "Events" and "Snapshots" functions, developers can instantly switch back and forth between different states of an application ( Windows 10 Anniversary Update (1607) is required for this).
Users can create snapshots and also use "Step back" and "Step forward" to navigate through the events displayed in the "Events" tab in the Diagnostic Tool window. When navigating, history-based debugging is automatically enabled for a selected event.
Overview of other key features in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
The 2017 version of Visual Studio Enterprise includes several improvements over the previous version, as well as new features to make developer work even faster and more efficient. Already during installation, admins can decide which applications are preferred: for example, only the Core Editor can be used, or also .NET desktop applications, Python, etc. In addition
boot times at program startup, as well as session startup and solution loading, as well as template detection for projects and items.
Languages supported by Visual Studio 2017
Support for Xamarin Mobile Development in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
Through the integration of Xamarin, the development of mobile apps for Windows, Android as well as iOS on this basis is now possible in Visual Studio 2017. Typical Xamarin features include the Xamarin Forms Previewer, which immediately shows the effects of a line of code on an application in a live preview. Furthermore, the Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin Profiler and Xamarin Test Recorder features are included, as well as IntelliSense for XAML enhancements for Xamarin Forms.
IntelliSense in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
The IntelliSense feature describes APIs the moment they are entered and automatically completes them, using the built-in IntelliSense completion lists, which speeds up the corresponding processes. Tooltips indicate problems by marking critical points with a wavy line. The lists also provide quick access to members, namespaces and code snippets, as well as to names of variables, commands and functions. Specifically in C#, the completion lists include tokens for "list member" and "complete word," among others.
CodeLens in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
The CodeLens feature provides developers with the time-saving ability to navigate to individual functions without having to leave the code to do so. CodeLens also highlights all code changes in the editor and indicates whether a test has passed at that location, as well as the last developer who adjusted something there.
New refactorings in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise
Refactorings provide a convenient way to update or improve the internal structure of code without changing its behavior. More refactorings are available in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise; these include converting if-statements to switch-statements, adding parameters, such as NULL checks, and arguments, as well as generating overrides; there is also the option to add digit separators for literals - especially for numeric literals, changing the base from "hexadecimal" to "binary" - etc.
Source code management in Visual Studio 2017 with Git
For those who don't want to use Microsoft's own Azure DevOps solution for source code management in Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise, they can instead use Git for Remote Repository, the widely used Standard for file version management that also allows members of a larger team to work on a project simultaneously.
Visual Studio 2017 Edition now provides the ability for Git to directly use appropriate repositories via built-in buttons in the IDE to set up, edit and publish code through them. Also included are new additions, e.g. for the "Push" and "Commit" functions, as well as SSH support. When using Azure DevOps Services, Visual Studio Enterprise also connects users to Git or GitHub repositories as well as TFVC repositories via Team Explorer.
