Using NCover/NCoverExplorer from MsBuildFebruary 1, 2008
On popular demand, here is a sample from my MsBuild file:
<UsingTask TaskName="NCoverExplorer.MSBuildTasks.NCover" AssemblyFile="NCoverExplorer.MSBuildTasks.dll"/> <UsingTask TaskName="NCoverExplorer.MSBuildTasks.NCoverExplorer" AssemblyFile="NCoverExplorer.MSBuildTasks.dll"/> <Exec Command="regsvr32 /s $(tools_dir)\NCover\CoverLib.dll"/> <NCover Assemblies="@(CodeCoverage_Assemblies)" CommandLineArgs="@(UnitTest_Assemblies, ' ')" CommandLineExe="$(tools_dir)\NUnit\nunit-console.exe" CoverageFile="$(CodeCoverageResultsXmlFile)" LogLevel="Quiet" ToolPath="$(tools_dir)\NCover\"/> <NCoverExplorer CoverageFiles="$(CodeCoverageResultsXmlFile)" FailMinimum="false" HtmlReportName="CodeCoverage.html" OutputDir="$(ProjectPath)" ProjectName="$(ApplicationName)" ReportType="ModuleClassSummary" SatisfactoryCoverage="60" ToolPath="$(ToolsDir)\NCoverExplorer\"/> <Exec Command="regsvr32 /u /s $(toolsdir)\NCover\CoverLib.dll"/>
Still a lot of XML, but it works. The regsvr32 command before and after the NCover/NCoverExplorer task is to make sure that NCover is working correctly. This because I've put the NCover/NCoverExplorer binaries in my Subversion repository. The CoverLib.dll file must be registered.
If you're interested in an in-person or online course that teaches you and your team how to write maintainable unit tests and get the most out of TDD practices, make sure to have a look at our trainings and workshops or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
