NUnit is a popular unit testing framework for .NET, that aids in creation and execution of unit tests.
Effective use involves a combination of testing concepts, programming knowledge, and understanding of the .NET ecosystem.
- Understand unit testing, integration testing, and test-driven development (TDD).
- Familiar with testing lifecycle, including test setup, test execution, and test teardown.
- Can interpret test results to identify failing tests and diagnose the root causes of failures.
- Familiar with the NUnit framework's concepts, such as test fixtures, test cases, assertions, and test runners.
- Is able to set up test environments, define test methods, and organize tests into meaningful test fixtures.
- Understands the use of NUnit attributes to mark test methods and provide context for test execution.
- Writes clear and concise test cases that cover ordinary and edge cases.
- Can create test data and mock objects to isolate units of code under test.
- Can use NUnit's built-in assertions and custom assertions to verify expected behaviors and outcomes.
- Handles assertion failures gracefully.
