Typemock acquired by Microsoft
Update: If you didn’t realize this, this was an april fool’s post, nothing more (yet!). Do enjoy the movie though. it is from our 4.2 release pool party!
The documents have been signed today and we have ben celebrating all this past weekend: see video below
The move comes as no big surprise. after Microsoft has released its unit testing tools, it was only a matter of time until they introduced a Mocking framework into the toolset which allows testing both new code and existing legacy code for organizations which face this problem. That is where Typemock Isolator comes in, and wins the match.
The product is expected to be available in future versions of VS.NET Professional, Team Test, Team Developer and Team Suite, and will have close integration with the MS testing tools. This is all we know at the moment and will update as things progress over time.
It’s been a fun ride, and we’re not even sure if development will move all or partly to Redmond or stay in Israel. In any case, it’s going to be interesting
