ASP.NET Web Forms - Unit Testing the Impossible

Wed 5:00 PM - Quicken Loans - Rosewood Room


ASP.NET web forms has been available for 15 years and for all of that time, testing applications written with this framework has been nearly impossible. There are strategies to re-structure your application to be testable, and strategies to use automated browser tools to inspect your site. What if you want to unit test the actual page object? What if you want to run tests as part of your continuous integration process? In this session we will look at a new open-source test harness called WebFormsTest that will give you the ability to test your application in-place with no changes and no expensive browser tools. The program manager who leads the current team at Microsoft that builds the ASP.NET framework for web forms will show you how to unit-test your sites easily with this new open-source tool.
