Microsoft Mocking Framework and TypeMock

posted @ Tuesday, April 1, 2008 4:11 AM

 

While everyone has been wondering over the past couple years when Microsoft would ship its own version of a mocking framework, as of yesterday TypeMock announced it has been acquired by Microsoft and the product will be included in future versions of Visual Studio.  At least they didn't follow their previous pattern and create a less powerful clone of other products already on the market.  Hmm, interesting this should be me thinks.  Next to follow, possibly a DynamicProxy2 clone from Microsoft?  What day is today again?

@Bill - Yep, it's a joke, sorry I missed your comment before.

@Mo - If you are talking about mocking frameworks for .NET, check out RhinoMocks and Moq.

Can anyone tell me what other .NET add ins are reccommended for Unit testing and TDD (other than Typemock) ?

Mo, we're using: Rhino Mocks, xunit, and vs integration with Resharper.

Other options are moq, nUnit (larger user base) and testdriven.net
