Join Our Webinar -- Test ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC Web Applications

Testing web applications has been virtually impossible. And the cost? Bugs, security flaws and hacking, and tons of bad code. With everything running on the web today, this can’t continue.

ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC is inherently not testable. It’s dependent on servers and other dependencies. This puts your code and your business at risk. Sign Up and see how Ivonna and Typemock Isolator .NET can help.

Learn about:

  • Testing web server code without a browser
  • Testing MVC controllers
  • Writing extremely simple tests for hard-to-test code
  • How to test your code for security risks

Can you afford NOT to unit test?

Anyone who starts unit testing knows that it’s not always easy to get started. This is why Typemock offers educational resources, like articles and webinars, to help developers get started. Of course, at Typemock, we’re proud of helping ease the transition to unit testing, as we strongly believe that developer testing is important both for software developers and companies. But, still, there is sometimes opposition to starting unit testing. Perhaps we need to ask the question: Can you afford NOT to unit test?

According to Pathfire Development, a software consulting firm, “testing is actually a cost saver instead of just an additional cost.”

According to the article, “Unit testing reduces the time it takes for the developer to verify their code. …. This becomes an even bigger time saver when code needs to be changed. Everyone makes mistakes, and it is easy to accidentally break something when making a change to several month old code which you didn’t write. Unit tests help ensure that a developer catches any mistakes right when they happen, and allows them to be fixed quickly.”

Read the rest. Send it to your boss. What do you think? Can you afford NOT to unit test?


Unit Tests Lie

“Unit tests lie,” recently wrote one software developer. “That’s why I love them.” He continues:

Unit tests are meant to lie. They rely on the often wrong assumption that the rest of the world is correctly working, but only because they are explicitly mocking it: using a fake world is a deliberate lie. To me, that’s exactly why they are so useful.
