You’re Not the Only User of Your User Interface

As developers, we’re expected to have a deep understanding of how things work in the CMS platforms we use. This gives us the ability to extend, integrate and customize the tools our clients need. Unfortunately, this “back-end" focus can often leave us with a less than optimal user interface and ultimately, a poor user experience.

Unit Testing Sitefinity with Telerik JustMock: Part 2 – Writing the Unit Test

In the previous blog post, I covered how to create and configure a JustMock Unit Test project for a new Sitefinity web application. After covering some key definitions for unit testing, a unit test project was added, and a boilerplate test class was created for testing a reindex search utility method in the SitefinityWebApp project. We will pick up exactly where we left off and add a test method to the recently created SearchTests class. By the end of the post we will have a set of tests that can be executed.

Unit Testing Sitefinity with Telerik JustMock: Part 1 – Project Setup

Over the last few weeks I have been exploring different frameworks and tools available for writing unit tests in Sitefinity. Surprisingly, documentation and examples of unit testing Sitefinity are a little light. Sitefinity.com has a couple blog posts on the subject but they don’t exactly provide a quick start on how to unit test a specific piece of custom functionality. Fortunately, Telerik provides its own standalone mocking framework, JustMock, which developers can use to get Sitefinity functionality mocked and tested in an afternoon (one thing to note, this post uses the commercial version of JustMock, which has more features and functionality than JustMock Lite). Since unit testing is a pretty large topic requiring some set up, I will be breaking this post into two parts. First, I will cover how to setup a Sitefinity project for unit testing. Next, I’ll cover a simple test implementation. The end goal is to provide a step-by-step guide for creating a unit test in Sitefinity. Before I get started, I’ll cover some key terms relating to unit testing.
