Here you can download the presentation (in spanish) of the talk “Testing and guarantee of quality with Visual Studio Team System” (“Testing y garantía de calidad con Visual Studio Team System”) that I did in Microsoft Argentina HQ together with Diego Gonzalez and Soledad Pano.

Many times it is necessary to be able to test each layer of an application individually. This task becomes specially difficult with the data access code and the unit tests since is complex to assure the results of the tests if each developer doesn’t have a private database.

To solve this problem I have developed a ADO.NET Data Provider that allows to test the data access code without accessing to the database.

The Mock Data Provider has two operation modes:
In the “recording” mode it acts of Proxy against another ADO.NET Data Provider and it records the results of all the executions against the database.
In the “mock” mode it returns the results that it registered previously in the “recording” mode, without being connected to the database.

In the conference that I will give on Thursday 24th I will make a complete demonstration of this tool meanwhile you can download the code from here together with a example of use.

Kenny Lamoot found a problem in the form in that the size of the message is measured to decide if it is compressed or not based on the configuration of the threshold.

The updated versions are available for download here (WSE 2) and here (WSE 3).

In August I will be speaker in two conferences in Microsoft Argentina HQ.

The topic of the first talk (on Thursday 24th) will be “Testing and guarantee of quality with Visual Studio Team System” and I give it together with Diego Gonzalez and Soledad Pano.
