C# Integration Testing Example

While trying to learn .NET, I've been looking for various examples of code and testing practices. Jeffrey Palermo (aka "EZWeb guy") looks to be a good source, including this article on integration testing.

Agile Testing Blog

While looking for some Fitnesse tutorials, I found these tutorials on Grig Gheorghiu's Agile Testing Blog. The articles are Python oriented, but it's not hard to translate the examples to C#. Also, he had some good posts on test strategy that are applicable to any language.

Fitnesse and C#

I'm learning a lot of new stuff right now. I'm trying to quickly get up to speed in the .NET world with C#. In addition, I'm learning NUnit, a unit test framework for .NET, and I'm learning Fitnesse, which is a tool for writing requirements in terms of acceptance tests.

I found a tutorial by Cory Foy for using Fitnesse with .NET which would have got me up and running quickly except that Fitnesse, as of last week, was built with support for .NET 1.1, and I've got the latest Visual Studio 2005 which supports .NET 2.0. Fortunately, in the comments for Cory's post I found a reference to Jeff Mattfield's instructions for building Fitnesse for .NET 2.0. After doing the rebuild I was good to go.
