Unit testing code depending on the ASP.NET #WebApi HttpClient
Of course we still need tests for updating existing resources as well as deleting them but with these examples those should be easy enough :-). 'In a previous post I showed how to unit test an ASP.NET WebAPI Controller. But with a REST service there is both a client and a service component. Assuming for a moment the client part is also written in C# we should test that as well. In this case the client application contains the following class to load books from the REST WebAPI controller: 1: public class BooksClient. 7: _httpClient = httpClient; 8: BaseUrl = new Uri( "[link] ); 9: }.

Flowcharts in Workflow 4 and the Switch activity
Of course the FlowSwitch should just to a ToString() on the expression result , anything else would be pointless as any comparison fails. Flowcharts are a nice addition to Windows Workflow Foundation 4. They allow for a lot of pretty complex behavior that is hard to do in a sequential workflow. In WF 3 we used to model these complex behaviors as state machine workflows. That worked but they weren't really state machines or event driven and things could get a bit tricky. No it is just another activity to drop in a workflow. guess you get the picture. So far so good. Next (5). Enjoy!

The value of Pair Programming
Of course, another value of the pairing overlap comes from just looking at the mistakes. Gary Filer made an interesting comment to me the other day; “I use to think that the value of pair programming was the shared brain” “But after seeing you pair for the last week, I realized that the shared part is actually the waste. But pairing reduces the cost of mistakes constantly. What Gary was seeing was the countless times Jason or I would say “Let’s do.” only to have the other one say, “No, your forgetting about.” or “No, there's a better way.”. Finding dead code and deleting it.

Testing Difficult Code
Of course, to do that you need a nice seam that passes in the default dependency. I recently did 3 videos in my ‘ Using ApprovalTests in.Net’ series that deal with how to test difficult code. These video actually have very little to do with either.Net or ApprovalTests, but they are common issues you run into when unit testing. Seams Testing difficult Code comes down to 2 things: Can I call the Method? Will the Method run to completion? And there are 2 techniques I use to deal with these, that individually are useful, but together are amazing. Here’s the video: The Peel 2. The Slice 3.
