Can We Make Redundant Debugging Redundant?


Unit testers may be interested to see that Typemock Isolator V7.4.3 for .NET has arrived with a promise to target development down-time due to redundant debugging.

The company says that "uninterrupted development flow" is at the heart of this version release due to a FastFix function — the relevant test is "pinned" for debugging, while the status of all tests is visible as well so that there is no need to switch between files and views. This is intended to eradicate time-consuming navigation and so expedite bug-fixing.

In addition, enhanced SmartRunner capabilities allow for slow integration tests to run during computer idle time while fast unit tests run immediately. Another productivity booster is the new Test Preview window that eliminates unnecessary navigation, showing the test-code on the same screen as the code under test.

In addition, the new version has new shortcuts, updated menus, highlighting capabilities, and easier navigation. V7.4.3 also supports the newly released Visual Studio 2013 as well as all other leading development tools.

Typemock founder Eli Lopian explains that automated unit testing minimizes bugs, especially regression bugs, in production code, saves development hours, and makes it easier and cheaper to change and refactor code across the entire lifecycle.

"Typemock Isolator integrates with Visual Studio and leading developer and server tools, including TFS 2012, and provides more coverage with a powerful mocking framework that supports testing untestable code, such as legacy code," he said.
