Release Notes

TestApi v.0.4 includes the following additions:
  • A new Memory Leak Detection API – allowing capture, comparison, and serialization/de-serialization of memory snapshots of a running process
  • A new Object Comparison API – allowing comparison of arbitrary .NET objects using arbitrary object comparison strategies
  • A new Text String Generation API – allowing generation of random strings, interesting from the testing point of view;
  • An improved Combinatorial Variation Generation API – we now support parameter value weights and tags (for “negative” variations)
  • Various documentation improvements and sample additions

The ZIP package contains:
  • Binaries
  • Documentation (conceptual documents and API documentation)
  • Source Code
  • Acceptance Tests
  • Samples

Before unzipping the package, you must unblock it. Failure to do so will prevent the sample tests from running in VSTS. To unblock the package:
  • Download the ZIP file;
  • Right-click the ZIP file and select "Properties";
  • Under the "General" tab, click the "Unblock" button and click "Apply";
  • Proceed with the unzip.

Reviews for this release

Very disappointing. Hoped that TestAPI would streamline and improve the ease of use of the Automation classes, but the whole thing is still extremely unwieldy, exacerbated by the very inadequate and incomplete documentation (e.g. issue 12168 is caused by blatant omissions in Introduction to TestApi). Also, first sample I ran (NUnit VerifyInput) does not work on windows xp.. Poor show guys :-(
