Subject RE: any suggestions how to work with nunit?
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2006 12:44:28 GMT
Hi Stefan...

	On the broken xml issues, those seem to be strictly bugs with
nunit-console (in my opinion); bugs would have to be filed with them.
Nunit-console provides these switches that are supposed to control the
output generation and I just don't see the sense in having /xmlConsole
or /transform produce xml results that can't be parsed.

	At first I was hoping maybe they were sending the extraneous
stuff to stderr or something, but I redirected that and nope, both the
xml and the stuff that breaks it are coming out stdout.

	Then there's the inexplicable (to me) behavior of nunit-console
/transform in that it ignores the output encoding the stylesheet says to
use and substitutes something like "IBM44".

	Given that much of the output that breaks the xml is formulaic,
it does seem theoretically possible that <nunit> *could* simply strip
leading output until it sees <?xml when /transform or /xmlConsole are
used, but that seems like make-work to cover over the real problem that
nunit-console does some odd stuff.

Hi Mark,

I'd like to second Steve's request to open bug reports, in fact I've
created enhancement requests for the problems that look easy to solve
and assigned them to myself.  That doesn't mean that patches wouldn't
be welcome ;-)

What do you suggest the task should do?  Have an XML option that would
run nunit-console with /xml and remove the output that makes breaks
the XML structure internally?

Anything we could do from the Ant side here?
