Basic patterns for writing first-rate .NET tests

Developers who have incorporated unit testing into their development process are already familiar with its advantages: cleaner code, courage to refactor, and improved productivity. Writing unit tests is easy; however, writing first-rate tests make automated unit testing and test-driven development powerful tools. This article provides some basic testing patterns that will help with writing good tests and anti-patterns you should avoid. To write great unit tests, here are some patterns to follow: 

  • Arrange-Act-Assert (AAA) Pattern
  • State-based testing Pattern
  • Interaction-based testing Pattern
  • Exception testing Pattern
  • Algorithm testing Pattern
  • Mock objects/fake Object Pattern

To learn more about using these patterns, and what they provide, read this informative white paper today.
