Microsoft hat mit der Ankündigung von ASP.NET Core (ehemals ASP.NET vNext oder ASP.NET 5) einen Paradigmenwechsel für das Unternehmen eingeschlagen. ASP.NET Core ist ein plattformunabhängiges, quelloffenes und architektonisch durchdachtes Framework, das auf Linux- und Mac-Systemen entwickelt und auch publiziert werden kann. Komplementär zum Core Framework stellt Microsoft seine auf allen Betriebssystemen lauffähige Entwicklungsumgebung Visual Studio Code vor. Ab sofort sind.NET-Entwickler nicht mehr an Microsoft-Systeme gebunden und müssen auch nicht mehr nach alternativen Technologien Ausschau halten, wenn das Zielsystem nicht Microsoft ist. Umso wichtiger ist die frühestmögliche Konfrontation mit ASP.NET Core, um im Markt bestmöglich aufgestellt zu sein. Dieses Buch fokussiert sich auf die essentiellen Fragmente von ASP.NET Core und ermöglicht einen einfachen Um- und Einstieg in das neue Core Framework. Verbunden mit jeder Menge Codebeispielen werden alle relevanten Grundlagen für das Implementieren von Enterprise-Lösungen aufgegriffen.

Lesbare, wartbare und zuverlässige Tests entwickelnStubs, Mock-Objekte und automatisierte FrameworksEinsatz von .NET-Tools inkl. NUnit, Rhino Mocks und Typemock Isolator Unit Testing, richtig durchgeführt, kann den Unterschied ausmachen zwischen einem fehlgeschlagenen Projekt und einem erfolgreichen, zwischen einer wartbaren Code-Basis und einer, die niemand freiwillig anpackt, zwischen dem Nach-Hause-Kommen um 2 Uhr nachts oder zum Abendessen, selbst noch kurz vor dem Release-Termin. Roy Osherove führt Sie Schritt für Schritt von einfachen Tests zu Tests, die wartbar, lesbar und zuverlässig sind. Er geht danach auf die Grundlagen des Interaction Testings ein und stellt schließlich bewährte Vorgehensweisen für das Schreiben, das Verwalten und das Warten der Unit Tests in echten Projekten vor. Darüber hinaus werden auch fortgeschrittene Themen behandelt wie Mocks, Stubs und Frameworks wie etwa Typemock Isolator und Rhino Mocks. Sie werden eine Menge zu fortgeschrittenen Testmustern und zur Testorganisation, zum Arbeiten mit Legacy Code und auch zu untestbarem Code erfahren. Und Sie lernen Werkzeuge kennen, die Sie beim Testen von Datenbanken und anderen Technologien brauchen werden. Alle Beispiele sind mit Visual Studio in C# geschrieben, so dass die Beispiele insbesondere für .NET-Entwickler nützlich sind. Aber auch für Programmierer anderer Sprachen wird das Buch von großem Nutzen sein, da die Prinzipien des Unit Testings für andere Sprachen dieselben sind. Roys Blog finden Sie auf ISerializable.com.
