JetBrains Offers Free Unit Test Runner for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

November 1, 2006

Prague, Czech Republic, November 1, 2006 — JetBrains s.r.o., creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing applications, today announced it has made its ReSharper UnitRun for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET available as a free, stand-alone tool. Developers can now automatically run and profile unit tests right from their code editor or from Visual Studio’s Solution Explorer. From within a dedicated window, developers can analyze test results, run or rerun any tests, and navigate from a failed test’s output directly to the code line that originated the exception, all with a single click.

Developers using JetBrains UnitRun can ensure a particular module of source code is working properly, leading to increased code stability and quality. Results are displayed in the Unit Test Tree View, which contains an overview of all tests in the build together with colored icons to indicate the state of each test. From this view developers can start running, debugging or profiling tests. Two additional tabs in the Test Tree View allow users to filter the results to only show failed or ignored tests.

Additional features of JetBrains Unit Test Runner include:

  • Progress Bar and Diagnostics View display the progress and overall status of the test being run
  • Easily identify console output and exception stack traces produced by a selected test or all tests
  • Monitor precise time measurements for tests

UnitRun can be used together with JetBrains dotTrace 2.0, the company’s intelligent profiling tool for Microsoft .NET applications. Additional information as well as the free, stand-alone version can be found at
