Unit testing and VS.NET 2005

Posted by Kirby Turner on June 17, 2004

I agree with Scott. Unit Testing support should be included with all versions of Visual Studio 2005 and not just with Team System. However, I am not sure I agree with the unit testing support using a new framework developed by Microsoft. NUnit is here today and works with all released versions of the .NET Framework. And I am sure support for version 2 of the .NET Framework will be included in NUnit once Microsoft has released it.

I doubt many of my customers will be ready to move to VS.NET 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0 when it is released, but I will still be developing solutions for them. And I will continue to provide unit tests for custom written production code. So while I agree that all versions of Visual Studio.NET 2005 should include support for unit testing, I would like to see stronger support for NUnit and not some new testing framework. This will help ease the migration to the new tool and framework.
