Standalone Mocking In .Net 4.0 MVC?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm trying to unit test the logOn method of my .Net 4.0 MVC application. I'm pretty sure I need to mock a bunch of objects because I don't want to hit the actual database and I only want to simulate an HTTPcontext in a limited and specific way (if I have to do it at all). All the examples I've found online use mocking frameworks like Moq, RinoMocks or nMock. MVC is all about Test Driven Development, there must be some way to do simple tests without using third party software.

The specific problem,The basic problem is that the controller I'm testing calls Response.Cookies.Add(...) but since the unit test is not in an HTTPContext, Response is null and I get an exception.

My research so far,I understand there is a layer of abstraction which will help me somehow. For example HttpResponse inherits from HttpResponseBase. I think I'm supposed to make a class that inherits from one of the MVC base classes, overload some of the members and then
call the method I want to test in a way that gives it my object instead of one it would normally use.

The question is how to do that. One would need to set up existing code with the ability to construct future versions of objects. Intuitively however, it would seem that existing code could only be and use functionality that existed at the time it was written.
Fortunately, a dynamic runtime means that the code which is actually run can be determined things that change after it is written like config files and HTTP headers.

One way to do that is for the existing code to use some method typically referred to as a factory that takes a string and returns an instance of an object.I conclude that I should look through the code for this factory and figure out how to manipulate it.

My background,I've recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science. Now at my new job, I've been assigned to write unit tests for a large project. Admittedly, I'm new to MVC, many aspects of C# and large projects in general. I may have made simple mistakes or incorrect assumptions in my analysis of this problem. I will do my best to stay active on this post and make it useful for others in situations similar to mine.

Mocking User.Identity In .NET MVC?

Jun 12, 2010

I need to create Unit Tests for an ASP.NET MVC 2.0 web site. The site uses Windows Authentication.I've been reading up on the necessity to mock the HTTP context for code that deals with the HttpContext. I feel like I'm starting to get a handle on the DI pattern as well. (Give the class an attribute of type IRepository and then pass in a Repository object when you instantiate the controller.)

What I don't understand, however, is the proper way to Mock the Windows Principal object available through User.Identity. Is this part of the HttpContext? have a link to an article that demonstrates this (or a recommendation for a book)?

MVC :: Feedback On The Most Optimal Toolsets For TDD, Mocking, And IOC?

May 25, 2010

I'll be starting a complete re-write of a system in the coming weeks. I'll be using ASP.NET MVC 2.I'm still trying to determine what I should be using as far as TDD, mocking, and IOC is concerned. I was thinking:

VSTEST for writing my TDD tests (or possibly nUnit) Moq as my mocking framework (for creating doubles and fakes) Moq for IOC development Not sure exactly what the ideal setup should be and I'm continuing to research what's available. I'd like some feedback from the community on the most optimal toolsets for TDD, mocking, and IOC.

Looking For Complete Mocking Framework For HttpContext?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm looking for as comprehensive as possible of a mock replacement and wrapper for the ASP.NET HttpContext in my applications. A comprehensive mock replacement could potentially increase the testability of my ASP.NET web applications substantially, without necessitating migrating every application to more-testable frameworks such as MVC.

Some of the features I am most interested in seeing in an HttpContext wrapper and mock framework include:

Serialized session storage (e.g., .Session).
Serialized application-scoped storage (e.g., .Application).
Per-request item storage (e.g., .Items).
HttpRequest data, such as referrers, request Uri, server variables, post data, etc.
HttpResponse data, such as status codes and content.
Local file resolution (e.g. Server.MapPath)

VirtualPathUtility for application-relative URL path resolution, which has a dependency on the ASP.NET runtime.The identity and principal (e.g., .User) for validating authentication/authorization rules.The AllErrors collection for testing error resolution in HttpModules and Global.asax.I considered writing my own interface, wrapper, and mock; however, I believe such must already exist. The variety of mock frameworks is a little overwhelming for a first-timer to absorb.

What is the most comprehensive HttpContext wrapper and mock?

Unit Testing / Mocking HttpContext Without Using Any Mock Framework

Sep 7, 2010

Since I'm having problem with unit testing RenderPartialViewToString() with Moq framework [URL] I'm thinking about getting my controller directly, without using Moq for these particular test, however, how do I mocks (or set) the HttpContext for my test without using any Moq framework?

I need to able to do something similar to this, without Moq of course:

var mockHttpContext = new Mock<ControllerContext>();
mockHttpContext.SetupGet(p => p.HttpContext.User.Identity.Name).Returns("n1\test");
mockHttpContext.SetupGet(p => p.HttpContext.Request.IsAuthenticated).Returns(true);

Unit Testing - Mocking HttpRequest In .NET 4.0 / HttpRequest Is Sealed With No Interface

Jul 15, 2010

I'm writing unit tests in ASP.NET 4.0 web application (ASP.NET Forms, not MVC). There are several spots in the code where I call the ServerVariables collection to call variables like REMOTE_ADDR. Since my unit tests do not actually initiate HttpRequests when executing my code, things like ServerVariables are Null and therefore error when I try to call HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")

All the solutions I've found to address this issue refer to MVC and so they assume that HttpRequest derives from HttpRequestBase, which it does in MVC but not in ASP.NET Forms.I tried using Moq but you can't mock a sealed class, and HttpRequest is unfortunately sealed with no interface.

Architecture :: How To Design A Centralized Business Or Service Authentication Architecture

Sep 22, 2010

i want to create a centralised business or Service authendication architecture in .net. for example, we have a clients like c1, c2, c3, c4, ... etc. everybody logins seperatly as well as grouply. ie, if client "C1" logins [with login authentication] he can access c2 , c3, c4 also without login authendication. So its like a google. if we enters gmail account, we can access orkut, picasa like that.. i need the cetralised architecture.

And, client "c1" seperately asks seperately how will be the authendication architecture.

so give me the single solution for both these two scenarios. how will be the architecture for these two and how is the Data Base (Login) Structure.

Architecture :: Entity Model Design Framework And N - Tier Architecture

Dec 25, 2010

recently i've studied on ADO.NET's Entity Model Framework and say 'wow' as ORM is one of the fevourite pattern i practice..but suddenly i've come to an ambiguous situation when i'm going to start. i usually follow the following 3-tier architecture..

1. UI Layer
2. BLL - business logic layer
3. DAL - Data Access Layer
a. DTO / DAO
b. Gateway (contains the sql query/stored procedure and connection with DB)

now when i'm going to use the Entity Model Design,where the DBML/ .edmx File should be placed? Because many a times i'm using the DBML file as DTO because of the mapped objects.. in the same time, sometimes DBML ( .edmx file in .NET 4.0) contains CRUD methods and stored procedured method as well as methods with different selection operations,- which should be in Gateway. so where the .edmx file should be placed !?!! IN DTO namespace !? or in Gateway namespace!

moreover sometimes there is no need for the BLL which breaks the rules of inter-layer-communication (UI > BLL > DAL.Gateway)! what makes me confuse is, what should be the ideal n-tier architecture when i'll use the ADO.NET Entity Model Design Framework

But I want a database fetch operation to be performed in this asyncronous method. And due to 3 tier arch. i am unable to do this in UI Layer. Can anyone guide me that how can I implement Asynchronous processing in 3 tier architecture? Note: If you are going to place EndAsyncWork1 in DAL then show that how can I return a value back to UI layer from this function.

Architecture :: Create architecture design For WCF Service?

Aug 10, 2010

I am try to create architecture design for WCF service.

We have WCF service that we have to expose to third party so then can request with xml and get back xml response.

The wcf service should do the following:

- Accept the request call with xml

- Check xml against the schema

- Parse the xml

- Authenticate the incoming xml by username and password that will be in xml

- Send back the response

If anybody can let me know what kind of design I can use or is there any pattern available that I can take it and then extend it as per my requirement.
