It’s been 5 years since a version of NBuilder was released. As happens to many of us, the original author got busy with life and was unable to spend the time brining it up to date. I volunteered to shepherd the project along, but I was also waylaid by life. However, I was recently able to spend some focused time fixing the final bugs and getting together an automated build with AppVeyor.
Given that it’s been 5 years, it’s impossible to know fully what has been changed. I did put together release notes for the things I know were changed.
My next task will be to port NBuilder to .NET Core
Release Notes for NBuilder 4.0.0
1. Obsolete methods have been removed.
Any method previously marked with the
Obsolete attribute has now been removed.
2. Silverlight No Longer Supported
As Silverlight is effective a dead technology, we have officially ended support for it. This will allow us to better focus on
a forthcoming release with .NET Core support.
Builder has a non-static implementation.
This will allow you to create customized
BuilderSettings for different testing scenarios.
<br />var results = Builder<MyObject>.CreateListOfSize(10).Build();
<br />var settings = new BuilderSettings() var results = new Builder(settings).CreateListOfSize<MyObject>(10).Build();
Do action now supports a signature that receives an index.
<br />var builderSettings = new BuilderSettings(); var list = new Builder(builderSettings) .CreateListOfSize<MyClassWithConstructor>(10) .All() .Do((row, index) => row.Int = index*2) .WithConstructor(() => new MyClassWithConstructor(1, 2f)) .Build();
- The decimal separator was wrong for some cultures.
- Random number generation of decimals was sometimes incorrect.
- Sequences were not created in the correct order.
- Random strings were not always generated between the expected lengths.
