Webinar Recording and Q&A: .NET Code Coverage for Continuous Integration using TeamCity and dotCover


The recording of our June 10th webinar with Maarten Balliauw, .NET Code Coverage for Continuous Integration using TeamCity and dotCover, is now available on JetBrains YouTube Channel and slides on slideshare.

In this webinar we use dotCover to collect code coverage information while running tests in our CI process. We can see how we can configure code coverage and how we can use the TeamCity Visual Studio plugin to download the coverage snapshot generated on the build server and inspect it using dotCover on a developer machine.

How much of our code is being covered by our unit tests? Are there areas we are not testing? By capturing code coverage data during a test run, we can analyze which areas of our applications are well-tested and which ones require additional tests to be written. And where better to capture code coverage information than on our build server? Find out in this webinar.

Below are select questions and answers from our webinar:

Q: Can we use MStest with TeamCity and also get code coverage with dotCover?

A: Yes, test runner type and .NET coverage tool can be chosen in TeamCity Build Configuration Settings tab. Please check the following settings:
MSTest and dotCover with TeamCity

Q: Is it possible to use dotCover on TeamCity with xUnit.net tests?

A: Yes, it is possible. If you are using xUnit and you want to capture code coverage, you can run dotCover from the command line and import the data into TeamCity by using a service message. The process details are described by Maarten during the webinar (starting from 24th minute).
