To do automation testing using Test Manager and Visual Studio Coded UI Test Project, should the web application be built in .NET technologies?

  • No, it's not required to have web application built in .Net to test it using Coded UI. – Dhiman Sep 24 '15 at 17:24

No, as far as I understand CodedUI just like Selenium drives the browser, so it should work on any website using any back-end technology. Although the browser support is somewhat limited to specific IE, FireFox and Chrome versions.

Though I would advice in using the same programming language/stack as the website under test, this way the developers can help you better and it might be possible to re-use code of the application for data generation.
