Last week I announced that TestDriven.NET now has code coverage integration for users of Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite, Developer or Tester. This week I'm happy to announce a solution for all other Visual Studio users! I've now added support for the popular code coverage tool NCover. Peter Waldschmidt the author of NCover has been working with me in order to get the two applications playing nicely together.
When I told to Grant Drake that I had NCover support working, he mentioned that he had written an NCover report viewer called NCoverExplorer. I quickly realized that NCoverExplorer would be an ideal viewer to use with TestDriven.NET. Compared to the default XSL summary transform that comes with NCover, the NCoverExplorer application is lightning fast. There is a tree view that lets you drill down and see your code colorized according to the coverage report. You can find out more and see what NCoverExplorer looks like here.
As I mentioned before, TestDriven.NET's NCover support is compatible with all versions of Visual Studio. It does however have the following dependencies:
If you have any suggestions for NCoverExplorer, be sure to let Grant know.
