JetBrains, the maker of popular productivity-enhancing toolssuch as IDEA IntelliJfor software developers, has released a major update version of dotCover, the companys .NET code coverage tool.
The new dotCover 2.0 helps .NET developers easily see how thoroughly their applications are covered with unit tests. Initially released as a code coverage add-in to JetBrains ReSharper, dotCover now includes its own unit test runner supporting multiple unit testing frameworks. ReSharper is a productivity tool for .NET developers using Microsoft Visual Studio.
"Monitoring how your code is tested is a great way to detect risk, and a best practice for delivering high-quality applications to your customers," Ruslan Isakiev, dotCover lead developer at JetBrains, said in a statement. "Now you can stay on top of this with dotCover 2.0an all-in-one tool for running unit tests, analyzing code coverage results and improving tests if needed."
New functionality in dotCover 2.0 includes a bundled unit test runner; integration with Visual Studio 2012 Release Candidate, in addition to Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010; and filters against irrelevant code based on specific attributes, JetBrains said in a press release.
dotCover supports many unit testing frameworks, including MSTest, NUnit, xUnit and MSpec. It also integrates with ReSharper's unit testing tools, so developers can choose between using ReSharper's unit test runner or dotCover's own.
In addition, dotCover analyzes statement-level code coverage, detects which unit tests cover any particular location in code, and highlights covered and uncovered code directly in Visual Studio code editor. With dotCover, developers can easily aggregate data from multiple sessions, merge snapshots and generate XML-based reports. dotCover also supports the NDepend .NET code quality tool.
A dotCover commercial license is available as a limited-time offer at $149 per seat, including one year of upgrades to new releases. To learn more about dotCover and try it free for 30 days, developers can go here.
