[Investigate EF6] EF6 RC1 usage in the context of unit tests
While creating a performance suite I came across an issue with EF6 where I was getting
"The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' for the 'System.Data.SqlClient' ADO.NET provider could not be loaded"
under some circustances.
The test in question queries a Code-First EF database to retrieve some test data on the ClassInitialize method. When I ran this test using the VS test runner and the local built in controller, everything was OK.
When I ran the same test, using the Resharper test runner, I would get the could not be loaded exception. But this is just a minor tooling issue.
However, when I try to run the same test using a test controller that is using test agents, I get the could not load exception again, so in the context of a Load test, that test wouldn't run.
When I downgraded to EF5, everything ran as expected, even Resharper test runner firing up the test ran fine.
