I’m proud to announce the official release of Typemock Racer- A Parallel Inspection engine for your multithreaded code. Think Microsoft Chess, only it’s available today, for visual studio 2008, and will continually be updated with new features.
Racer’s main purpose is to find and recreate deadlocks in code that you give it. Think of it like specifying a unit test, but then putting one simple attribute on top of the test called [ParallelInspection]. This will turn the test into a Racer test.
In the future racer will extend to also checking for race conditions, but currently will find deadlocks in managed code.
I made a quick little movie that shows how to start using it quickly and painlessly. see below.
