TypeMock Isolator - Now With Debugging Goodness
I’m playing with the latest release of TypeMock (now “TypeMock Isolator,” as it sounds like they have a suite of products planned beyond their mocking product) and I think my favorite feature is the better debugging support. Sure, you can mock fields now (admittedly, a little scary sounding, but with legitimate applications nonetheless) and they’ve cranked up the performance on it, but how many times have you fired up TestDriven.NET and started your test in the debugger only to get odd behavior because you tried to step into a mocked method?
Now, when you try that, you actually see the method outlined in the debugger so you get a visual cue about what you’re doing:
Oh, and you know how you ran into trouble popping open the watch window, or QuickWatch, and evaluating a mocked call multiple times, causing mock verification problems? No more! The debugger works without hitches. Love it, love it, love it.
This is all in the new TypeMock Isolator 4.2.1 beta. If you get a chance, check it out. Good stuff coming from those TypeMock folks.
