"The .NET Unit Test Runner and Code Coverage Tool"

What do you like best?

dotCover shows what parts of the code were called during the session and which parts were not reached this is a very useful feature for better code testing and also identifies the possible memory leaks in the code, I really like the feature called continuous testing mode which can figure out on-the-fly which unit tests are affected by your latest code changes, and automatically re-runs the affected tests for you

What do you dislike?

I am liking all the features of Dot cover and I am still exploring it, wonderful learning experience it makes the application more stable.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

it helps a lot in measure the test coverage and debugs unit test cases and the continuous testing feature is very helpful.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This helps to uncover memory leaks in .NET applications and also the feature Continuous testing which is really helpful.

"code testing and coverage tool review"

What do you like best?

DotCover is shown all parts of the code were called during the session and which parts were not reached. its also shows the possible memory leaks in the code that's why I like all feature of DotCover it's very helpful and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

In price its little bit high in working and testing from the time I m using I can't see any dislike in DotCover but I m still exploring DotCover if I see any dislike in a feature I mention in comments.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

DotCover is a great help in writing tests and can strongly boost a developer’s productivity. that's why strongly recommended DotCover to my friends (of my fields) and other office colleagues

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The integration with Visual Studio (and with ReSharper) was excellent. The first thing I noticed was an extra “Cover with dotCover” item in the ReSharper test menu (triggered from the yellow and green ball things). I clicked it, and it ran my tests, bringing up the familiar Unit Test results window.

"A efficient program that saves time in project design and inception"

What do you like best?

dotCover is a simple user-friendly application. It's easy to get set up and easily integrates with other software like Visual Studio. During coding' the program speeds up the loop between writing code and review which makes it easier to write correct code. Great for measuring test coverage and other analytics.

What do you dislike?

The high initial cost of the program and it uses up a lot of the CPU's processing speed making the computer slow.

The user interface could also be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For people learning how to code or long time coding experts, dotCover is the go-to program for speeding up the loop between implementation and product collaboration

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

dotCover saves a lot of time when writing up codeand gives good timely feedback during the development and design of unit tests,The program exposes leaks very quickly and this helps to give accurate code

"Another great release by Jetbrains!"

What do you like best?

- Integration with Visual Studio and VSCode

- Running unit tests and understanding your code coverage was very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

- Not sure if integration tests were supported, and if they were, I wasn't sure how to use them

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- Consider using integrations native to Visual Studio. dotCover might be a hit or miss - I found the integration pretty seamless, but it required an extra step for me.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Catching bugs prior to release. I have caught several edge cases that would have been missed if I didn't use a code coverage tool.
