Announcing the R2 2021 release of our mocking framework, Telerik JustMock.
The R2 2021 release of our mocking framework, Telerik JustMock, includes performance improvements, Debug Window showing information about the arguments used in the arrangement, support for .NET 6 Preview 3 and improvements in the Visual Studio extension. Let’s look at the details.
With the previous JustMock release R1 2021, we shipped a configuration to speed up the unit tests’ execution time. With R2 2021, we’ve continued to improve the JustMock profiler by optimizing the process of instrumenting the code required for managing the lifecycle of the mock objects for all DLLs that contain unit tests.
We’ve put a lot of effort into providing you a way to resolve faster any issues you might have with your mock object. Until now, you had the information about the invocation of each mocked method but lacked the information detailing with what arguments a method had been mocked. With R2 2021, the Debug Window has this functionality as well. This will let you compare the arguments used for mocking the method and the actual arguments with which an invocation has been made.
Microsoft shipped a third preview version of .NET 6 at the beginning of April this year. We’ve made a promise to support all new versions of .NET and are delivering on that promise. JustMock now supports .NET 6 Preview 3.
The current experience when the trial period has expired includes the buttons for enabling and disabling the JustMock profiler to be inactive. This was somewhat confusing to the trialists and for that reason we have added another button with the text, “Why JustMock is disabled,” which leads to dialog information about the license.
In addition to that, we’ve slightly reorganized the menus and moved several of them into a new one for better usability.
And last but not least, we revamped one of the favorite places that developers love hanging out—the Telerik and Kendo UI Community Forums. Check out the complete story of why and what in the dedicated blog post.
The R2 2021 release is already available for download in customers’ accounts. If you are new to Telerik JustMock, you can learn more about it via the product page. It comes with a 30-day free trial, giving you some time to explore the capabilities of JustMock.
