Publication of Test Results to TFS 2008

Lately I’ve been struggling with some weird behavior during a Team Build (TFS 2008). The build executed also a set of Unit Tests which passed, but during the publication step of the test results to Team Foundation Server, the operation failed time after time.



I couldn’t find any additional information (eventlog, TFS Log, …) about the root cause of this failure, but while limiting the test methods for the test run I bumped into a test method which name consisted of 461 characters!

Apparently there’s a hard limit of 256 characters for the test method names that are published to the TFS data warehouse.
