I have a WCF service in which I have set up a Mock on my Entity it works well as long as I reference my dll
Now I would go further and directly referencing my service ".svc" and indicate to the execution of my service I want to distort my Entity via a method

public enum TestContext
[ServiceBehavior(InstanceContextMode = InstanceContextMode.Single)]
public class ExampleService : IExample
public void TestContext(TestContext testContext)

public static class MockService
        public static void Initialize(TestContext testContext)
            var dataTiers = new List<TIERS>
                new TIERS {ID_TIERS = 1}

var context = Isolate.Fake.AllInstances<EntityContainer>();
            Isolate.WhenCalled(() => context.TIERS).WillReturnCollectionValuesOf(dataTiers);

My problem is Isolate is not started because the service is independent of the unit test
(I saw it was possible to launch TMockRunner but it always seems couple with unit test)

So it is possible to launch Isolate via the dll of my service directly?

Isolator is a mocking tool dedicated to unit testing.
If you are trying to use Isolator to intercept methods in other contexts you should try using CThru which is an AOP interception framework based on the Typemock Open-AOP API.

Otherwise, please explain which capabilities of Isolator you need.
