In this release, we've focused on enhancing performance and accuracy of static analysis rules, providing support for Visual Studio 2017, as well as extending the coverage collecting functionality to collect coverage information form standalone applications with Coverage Agent Manager.
Support for Visual Studio 2017
dotTEST can now be integrated with Visual Studio 2017 and provides support for C# 7.0 and VB.NET 15.0.
Collecting Coverage from Standalone Applications with Coverage Agent Manager
The coverage collection functionality has been extended to collect coverage information form standalone applications with Coverage Agent Manager - a web interface that allows you to collect coverage and test data during test execution; see Application Coverage for Standalone Applications for details.
Enhanced Workflow for Test Configurations
We've made it easier for you to interact with test configurations when working with dotTEST on your desktop. Now you can easily duplicate and customize an existing test configuration on DTP, as well as run a test configuration right form your IDE Preference page; see Creating Custom Test Configurations and Setting the Active Test Configuration for details.
- Support for .NET Framework 4.7, which is bundled with dotTEST and can be automatically installed during dotTEST installation
- Analyzing website projects with Metrics
Updated Code Analysis Rules
The following code analysis rules have been updated to improve the performance and accuracy of Static Analysis:
|SERIAL.XML.SOAFAP-1||Make sure that type of serialized field/property is compatible with type used in XmlElementAttribute|
|SEC.LGE-2||Ensure all exceptions are either logged with a standard logger or rethrown|
|PB.STATICFLD-3||Do not write to static fields from non-static methods|
|EXCEPT.NCSAE-3||Avoid the use of "catch" on 'Exception', 'SystemException' or 'ApplicationException'|
|CS.BRM.ES-3||Use string.Empty for empty strings|
|VS.BRM.ES-3||Use string.Empty for empty strings (added rule for Visual Basic)|
