Support for MSTest in future versions?

Hello guys

 

Are there any plans to add support for MSTest in ReSharper? I know about

James Kovacs's VstsUnit plugin for ReSharper but it would be nice to see

this in ReSharper.

 

Regards

 

Gabriel Lozano-Moran

Hello Gabriel Lozano-Moran,

 

We currently have no plans to support MSTest directly.

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

Hello Barry,

 

What's there in MSTest that makes it better than NUnit? I'm just curious.

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

Here's another request to either support MSTest or an option to disable the menu options.

 

We use MSTest since it's built-in and has good integration with VS Team System.

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

I use the current test runner supplied with 2008

 

I am not in favor of disabling the menu item simply because IMO it sends the wrong message to new users.

 

In addition I am hoping that the Resharper test runner would be a bit simpler and  run a bit quicker.  The current test runner for Microsoft test fixtures is full of features, nearly all of which I personally don't use, and creates files that are added to the solution, which cause the solution items folder to become over large

 

What I would like is the Resharper runner to provide a simple interface,

 

1. run all tests in the solution

2. run test that the cursor is currently in

 

no extra files or configuration, if I want the test results to be saved, then I can leave that to my build server and its scripts, the in situ test runner for me should be light weight and quick.

 

Why am I using the MSTF, because I want to encourage unit testing in my team, and because its built in, no extra dependencies have to be installed or imported, a solution can be loaded, and the tests run with no additional setup. 

 

When an external test fixture is used (I happen to like MBUnit) the dlls etc have to be installed on the new users machine before the solution can be compiled, or the test projects have to be removed, which is what happens, so the new coder never looks at my tests, at least if they compile using the built in fixture then the new coder has to go the extra setup to remove the tests, and you never know they might even look at them

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

I still don't like the way the MSTF puts vsmdi files in the solution items folder,

 

but yes i do see your point about the menus, "if I haven't got it, don't show it" is properly a good UI rule

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

I second both:

 

- Supporting MSTest; and

- The ability to turn off the NUnit testing support (I requested this a couple years ago)

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

Hello Stefan,

 

I we were going to allow hide/show ReSharper's Unit Testing, we would go

simply with checkbox on Unit Testing option page. We are not sure, if we

are going to do it, but it doesn't seem to be very complex thing

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

In my case I'm using NUnit in one project because my client is using VS2005 standard, and in another I'm using VS unit tests.  So please don't disable anything automatically.

However I have always preferred the R# test runner, so I would like R# to support VS unit tests if possible.

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

I am trying to follow this thread and I cannot tell if you are intending on supporting MSTest in R# 4.0.  I can tell you the reason I came out to the forum was to find out "when" it was going to be supported.  After a long stretch of MSTest, vs. NUnit and RS, I am hoping you can put an end to my misery.  At this point I can't determine which I dislike more, the MSTest GUI or the C# 3.0 code litered with red!  I will be downloading the dev builds of R# 4.0 to get rid of the red and take my chances but I am hoing that MSTest will follow in the future.  Thanks.

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

I have seen lots of arguments about what features one unit testing framework has over the other. I think that this is irrelevant. Unit testing frameworks are most often enforced by the organisation. At work, I may not have the options of using NUnit as a matter of organisational policy. If I am forced to use MSTest, I still want to get all the benefits of ReSharper unit testing features if it is able to support MSTest.

That is completely true.  MSTest is horrible and I wouldn't be using it didn't have to.  Are JetBrains any closer to support MSTest?  It needs to be a first class member of the ReSharper integrations a la NUnit.

That's true, but I have 4.1 installed which isn't supported, plus this kind of functionality shouldn't be left to an OSS project.  I hate MSTest.  I mean real geniune loathing of it.  My work-mate Mike has a good post summing up our experiences with it  here.  However, I have to use it. Politics politics politics.

 

I think a few people are in same boat as me and it's only going to get worse.   Please JetBrains, support MSTest in the same manner you do NUnit.

Re: Support for MSTest in future versions?

I completely agree -- it's not a matter of what framework is better or not, it's a matter of your dedication to support Visual Studio's core features. Having the ability to manually en/disable the unit testing in R# is a baby step, but it's a complete non-commital step. Right now, you're telling MSTest users that you don't care about us. This is made abundantly clear when you see the fact that the *_Accessor class isn't supported in VS08. Now, every test which interacts with a private, protected, and/or internal member has an "error" because you refuse to support the capability. This also renders solution-wide analysis almost useless, since there will always be errors. A good tool shouldn't hinder developers, it should work for them to make their lives easier. R# isn't doing that for MSTest users.

 

If you're using MSTest, vote for this bug!!!!
