Reaching out to .NET developers (in this case Nunit)

I just posted the text below to NUnit's main mailing list. This is something that I've wanting to do for a while, and finally I think that O2 is reaching a level of maturity that developers of other tools will find it interesting, and will adopt parts of it.

This is all part of the strategy of building bridges with developers, to add value to their world, and to allow us to speak the same language.

In this case, if we can get a good dialog with the NUnit folks, I would love to add 'security focussed Unit Tests' to the NUnit Community

Hi, I'm the main developer of the OWASP O2 Platform (see and and I just wrote a blog post that you might find very interesting:

O2 Platform is a .NET application that has a number of very powerful Reflection APIs. It also makes extensive use of Fluent APIs which you can see a published example here:

As part of that PoC there is also an O2 Command Prompt that popups up which allows direct access to NUnit's Gui and memory objects. This would be very useful for NUnit developers since it would allow them to have direct access to the GUi controls without needing to recompile and execute the application.

Feel free to contact me if you have further questions or want to see a demo of this in action
