When you are writing unit tests for a system, you need often a lot of test data. The creation of the data takes place in the test fixture
. If I want to test the handling of a order then I need to create a customer, products, categories, shipping and so on. That is test data only for a order. But you want also test customer. And Product. For those classes you also need test data. Why don't reuse the test data of order. Well this paper about object mothers
is very interesting. And we use it in your project.
And this book about unit testing, xunit patterns
is a recommendation. <>
Software factories and patterns. Dayly I get confrontated with them.
We developing a application according to the Web service software factory.
But now I found The EFx Architectural-Guidance Software Factory
That is also a very interesting factory. And as a client we desided not to use Smart Client Software Factory because of code maintenance and learning curve. But still it is very interesting...
And all those facories uses a lot of patterns.
Well, where is Silicon valley? Yes I know near San Fransico. But this picture is nice.
And what about this... Grotere kaart weergeven
Where do i find the time to look at silverlight
I want to play with it not only read about it. Look at these articles
examples about wpf
can be found here.
The policy at Corus
is that as a database, use Oracle
. So to connect to the database with .net we don't use the .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle
but the Oracle Data Provider for .Net
, ODP.NET. Because there is a lot of maintenance going on, the question I get is, ODP.Net does it contain a Oracle client? This article
gives answers to a lot of the questions.
The last couple of days I'm learning a lot about the specification pattern. These links can helped me to understand and implement the pattern.
The specification pattern by Martin fowler.
An example of the specification pattern by Jeff Perrin.
An implementation of the specification pattern by Tim McCarthy.
Validation In The Domain Layer - Take One and Validation In The Domain Layer - Take Twoby Jean-Paul S. Boodhoo. This is our solution so far.
In the MSDN magazine of December 2007 i read this article Connect to mainframe apps With BizTalk Adapters and .NET. Well in my current project, we are developing an application that communicate with mainframe. While reading the article I was thinking at the solution that is common here. The way the communication here is to communicate through Websphere MQ using XML messages.
