Cons
"NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.""While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us.""I would like to see support for auto-correlations.""Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases.

It could be easier to use.""The documents on the Microsoft website are not very useful, and they ought to make it easier to find answers.""We would like to be able to easily integrate this solution with our continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins.""The pricing of this solution should be lowered.""The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable."

Overview

The NeoLoad load and performance testing tool for web and mobile apps realistically simulates user activity and monitors infrastructure behavior to eliminate bottlenecks. It covers all performance testing from component and automated tests to system-wide hybrid-cloud load tests.

Visual Studio Professional Edition provides an IDE for all supported development languages. As of Visual Studio 2010, the Standard edition was dropped. MSDN support is available as MSDN Essentials or the full MSDN library depending on licensing. It supports XML and XSLT editing, and can create deployment packages that only use ClickOnce and MSI. It includes tools like Server Explorer and integration with Microsoft SQL Server also. Windows Mobile development support was included in Visual Studio 2005 Standard, however, with Visual Studio 2008, it is only available in Professional and higher editions. Windows Phone 7 development support was added to all editions in Visual Studio 2010. Development for Windows Mobile is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2010; it is superseded by Windows Phone 7.
