We’ve just started using NBehave, so this is a random selection of notes:
If you try to use NBehave-Console with a .NET 4.0-compiled assembly, you’ll see a BadImageFormatException. You can fix this by creating the NBehave-Console.exe.config file, as follows:
xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <configuration> <startup> <supportedRuntime version="v4.0.30319"/> </startup> </configuration>
This makes it use the v4.0 CLR. See this question on StackOverflow.
NBehave’s command-line parsing is a bit flakey. If you pass /scenarioFile (rather than /scenarioFiles), the invalid switch is ignored; no error is raised.
Similarly, it ignores unrecognised lines in the text scenario files, so make sure that you type “When”, “Given”, etc., correctly.
Also, NBehave-Console.exe is compiled for “Any CPU”, so if you’re testing stuff that requires 32-bit DLLs (e.g. COM components), you’ll need to use CORFLAGS /32BIT+ to fix up the EXE.
