Two topics I’d been asked to cover were tackled today.
Gunnar explains “How to Shoot Yourself in the Foot With Code Coverage”. Some choice quotes that I have also found to be truisms:
To efficiently use any of this a time needs to be invested in training people, choosing proper metrics, explaining metrics to all team members, and picking key things to measure.
Whenever I read articles when somebody recommends that one should strive for 100% code coverage I want to start screaming.
Based on my experience getting more than 80% of code coverage gets extremely tricky and there’s very little in return for your investments.
Rido found, what he describes as, the best add-in and wrote a macro to go along with it for integrating NUNIT into VS.NET 2003.
Great Posts! Enjoy.
