** Want to learn more about unit testing, including the difference between unit testing frameworks and an isolation/mocking framework? Watch our free webinar: Intro to Unit Testing **
One of the most important parts of starting unit testing is choosing a unit testing framework.
Unit Testing frameworks are often third-party applications which help simplify the process of unit testing. Unit testing frameworks, however, shouldn’t be confused with mocking or isolation frameworks like Isolator.NET or Isolator++ which come pre-packaged already with unit testing frameworks.
Want to get started unit testing? Here are a few .NET Unit Testing Frameworks to get started with in addition to Isolator.NET (Download it now for a free trial – even after your trial ends, your tests will continue to run, so it’s a great way to start exploring unit testing).
|NUnit||NUnit is an open source unit testing framework for Microsoft .NET. It is part of the xUnit Framework|
|TestDriven.NET||Commercial Visual Studio add-in|
|Isolator.NET||Typemock Isolator .NET – Lets you test any code, including “untestable” code|
|Visual Studio Unit Testing Framework||The Visual Studio Unit Testing Framework describes Microsoft’s suite of unit testing tools as integrated into some versions of Visual Studio|
|xUnit.net||Developed by the original inventor of NUnit to be its successor. xUnit.net is currently the highest rated .NET unit testing framework|
