James Newkirk – an original NUnit developer – and Brad Wilson recently shared some more of their work on the XUnit test framework. The download is available on the CodePlex site.
According to Ben Hall, blogger and Red Gate Software test engineer, the framework itself
is…built using .NET Framework 2.0, doesn’t require any installation (XCopy) which makes it great for storing in source control and includes a TestDriven.NET runner, ReSharper runner and a console runner for executing the tests.
Hall digs into the XUnit innards and says it has some really interesting concepts. He looks forward to V.1 and thereafter. One wonders, can XUnit ever win a place in developers’ hearts akin to NUnit?
