This is the third part of the three part series that deals with the issue of faking test data in the context of a legacy app that was built with Microsoft's Entity Framework on top of an MS SQL Server database – an architecture that can be found very often, and that originally came up in the broader context of writing User Acceptance Tests. It shows how you could handle such a scenario with the NDbUnit framework.

It describes a sample application, discusses some general aspects of unit testing in a database context, and also some more specific aspects of the here discussed EF/MSS

During the last months, I was doing software development the 'traditional' way (writing code as accurate as you can, then hoping that it's good enough - HDD, Hope-driven development). When I thereafter reviewed my understanding of Test-driven development, it turned out that there are some concepts that I just don't buy anymore...

A presentation about the MSTest framework (aka. Visual Studio Unit Testing), some additional tools (e.g. Moq, Moles, White), how this is supported in Visual Studio, and how it integrates into the broader context of a TFS environment.

These days, JetBrains (the manufacturer of ReSharper (R#)) released the beta version of a new code coverage tool – dotCover. Here are my first impressions about it…

Usual opensource mocking frameworks can mock only interfaces and virtual methods. In contrary to that, Microsoft Moles can ‘mock’ virtually anything. Here's a little overview over this framework, together with a suitable Gallio extension...

This post started out to be a reply to another blog post about some detail of the red/green/refactor cycle in TDD. It ended up as a fairly extensive description of my own personal practice of doing TDD in C#, featuring quite some VS add-ins and discussing some (real-world) aspects of test-driven development along the way...

As a software developer, I'm especially interested in the various tools that are available to make a developer’s life easier. The knowledge about these tools also forms a substantial part of my professional assets. Most of the links that I bookmarked over the years point to some freely available stuff (e.g. OSS projects), and therefore I decided to make the collection available via Delicious. Maybe it will be useful to other people as well...

Shows how to patch the error that is encountered with the Selenium web testing framework when running it against the latest version of the Firefox browser (3.6)...
