Run coverage analysis on a remote machine

Remote code coverage

Now you can run coverage analysis of unit tests on a remote machine and save resources on your local computer.

After you start coverage analysis, dotCover sends the binaries and the list of tests to be executed to a remote server. All calculations are executed by the server, and the coverage snapshot is send back to your machine. You can then study coverage results the same way as if they were gathered locally.



Refined coverage configuration dialog box

Refined coverage configuration

Meet redesigned coverage configuration dialog box. Here you can select an application type and configuring related preferences when you start manual test session for an external application.



Coverage scope definition

Custom coverage scope

dotCover provides you with ability to include not covered solution assemblies into the coverage results. New option is available from ReSharper -> Options menu item from Visual Studio.

Additionally, now you can change the scope of assemblies whose information should be added to the snapshot with new "Scope" parameter in console runner. Note that everything excluded with filters is excluded anyway regardless of the specified scopes.



Updated coverage controller

Updated coverage controller

dotCover 3 receives an updated coverage controller of a manual test session.

New controller provides you with two snapshot getting options: to record or not coverage results right after taking the snapshot.
