Verify your code works as expected. Explore the process of creating and running unit tests with Visual Studio.
- [Walt] Welcome to my Visual Studio Unit Test course. Join me as I explore the unie test integrations available in Visual Studio. I'll start the course by building a simple unit testing framework. This allows us to explore the basic principles of testing frameworks and see how our primitive version compares to the commercial offerings that we'll use later in the course. You'll explore three of the popular test frameworks: MSTest, NUnit, and xUnit.net. I'll show you how to create unit tests with each framework, compare their features, and show how each one is fully integrated into the Visual Studio IDE.
Plus, I have a lot of tips and information about using Test Explorer, the main IDE tool for running tests and investigating the test results. I'll look at some popular features like Code Lens and Code Coverage too. Also on the agenda is a look at how to debug unit tests and how to make parameterized tests. That's the topics for this course. If you're ready, let's get started.
- Examining types of frameworks
- Choosing a naming convention
- Creating unit tests
- Running unit tests with Visual Studio
- Modifying and correcting code
- Handling exceptions
- Installing and using nUnit
- Viewing test results with CodeLens
