Unit Testing II

Its been a while since I wrote any Unit Tests in anger (even then it was part of a University project)...

So I'm listing a few essential pieces of knowledge that seem to have escaped me...

1. This is not an exciting job - the important ones rarely are!

2. Include any Connection Strings or similar in the Test Project's app.config file.

3. Do this carefully - especially when your WCF interacts with multiple databases.

4. Objects & Lists? It can be difficult to compare two of these instances, like all tests (and these are the easy ones) be creative!

5. A Test project does not always react well to having multiple subject projects to test.

6. A Solution will not always react will to having multiple Test Projects in it.
