JetBrains Releases dotCover 2.0 With Integrated Unit Test Runner

.NET code coverage tool upgraded to support Visual Studio 2012 RC, becomes independent from JetBrains ReSharper

June 18, 2012

Prague, Czech Republic, June, 18, 2012 — JetBrains®, creators of popular productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, today released a major update version of dotCover, their .NET code coverage tool.

dotCover 2.0 is a powerful tool that 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.

“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,” said Ruslan Isakiev, dotCover lead developer. “Now you can stay on top of this with dotCover 2.0 — an all-in-one tool for running unit tests, analyzing code coverage results and improving tests if needed.”

With the latest update, dotCover’s functionality includes:

  • A bundled unit test runner.
  • Integration with Visual Studio 2012 Release Candidate, in addition to Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010.
  • Filters against irrelevant code based on specific attributes.

dotCover supports many unit testing frameworks, including MSTest, NUnit, xUnit, MSpec. It also integrates with ReSharper’s unit testing tools, so you can choose between using ReSharper’s unit test runner or dotCover’s own.

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, you can easily aggregate data from multiple sessions, merge snapshots and generate XML-based reports (NDepend is also supported).

dotCover commercial license is available as a limited-time offer at $149 per seat, including one full year of upgrades to new releases. For any sales inquiries and volume pricing options, please contact (North America) or (outside of North America).
