JetBrains TeamCity comes bundled with dotCover Console Runner. Just by enabling the corresponding configuration option you can collect code coverage for your .Net project and then view coverage statistics and detailed coverage reports. The Visual Studio add-in provided by TeamCity allows connecting to the TeamCity server to fetch coverage snapshots automatically. For more information, see TeamCity Visual Studio Addin.


A highlight of TypeMock Isolator.NET 6.2. is its integration with dotCover. Coverage analysis is supported in TypeMock unit tests.


dotCover can generate coverage reports in the NDepend-compatible format. For more information, see NDepend Coverage Data FAQ: How to get XML Coverage Files from JetBrains DotCover
