Test Driven .NET Development With FitNesse

published Feb 28, 2008, ISBN 978-0955683602

Test Driven .NET Development With FitNesse (published in 2007, second edition in 2009) is about doing test-driven development in a .NET environment better, with the help of two great open source tools: FIT and FitNesse. These tools allow us to apply TDD principles efficiently and improve communication with customers and business analysts. FIT and FitNesse help all team members build a shared understanding and effectively speak the same language.

This book is primarily aimed at .NET developers interested in starting with TDD and those who already practise unit testing and want to move beyond that into development driven by acceptance testing. It will also be useful to Java developers who are experienced with FitNesse, but wish to use it in a .NET environment. The .NET and Java implementations differ significantly in some ways, and this book points out all the important .NET-specific features. Java developers can also benefit from the third part of this book, where we discuss best practices for using FitNesse in a team environment and integrating FitNesse into the wider software development ecosystem, including web and database tests.

You will learn how to write and manage tests effectively, how to integrate FitNesse into your development process, and how to extend it to meet particular project needs. You will learn when to use FitNesse, when not to use it, and when to combine it with unit testing tools. You will also discover how to get customers to help out with testing and how to use FitNesse to make project requirements clearer.
