Solution Explorer Pane

Relevant for: GUI tests and components and API testing

The Solution Explorer displays the currently open solution, with its associated documents and their associated files.

A solution is a collection of testing documents and other resources, similar to a binder or notebook. Use solutions to organize your testing documents to help you perform comprehensive application testing.

Example: Suppose you want to test a Web application for a flight booking application. You can create a solution containing several tests or components that verify various aspects of your application, such as logging in, booking a reservation, verifying the connection between your application and database, and verifying the transfer of booking information from your application to an airline server.
