Unit Test Explorer is used to:
- Browse unit tests in built projects.
- Select tests to include into test sessions that are run in the Unit Test Sessions window.
- Run coverage analysis for selected unit tests.
dotCover shares the unit test support with another JetBrains .NET developer tool, ReSharper. These two tools have the same unit test runner engines as well as Unit Test Explorer and Unit Test Sessions windows. If you install dotCover after ReSharper, dotCover disables its own unit test runner so that you can continue using ReSharper's unit test commands and windows; all additional dotCover commands are integrated in ReSharper menus. For more information, see Sharing Unit Test Support with ReSharper.
