TDD in the BizTalk application development RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently working in BizTalk applications development and trying to implement TDD. Most of the times our application doesnot require any custom pipeline components/custom XSLT in mapping , it will mostly like generating a Flat File from the Database like Oracle/ MS SQL DB. I am not sure how to implement TDD in developing simple BizTalk applications and also would like to know if it makes complex to use the tools for TDD in the smaller/basic application.Please suggest me how can I move forward as BizTalk is very much new to me.

    Thanks

  • So...do you really need to do this?  Serious question.

    The thing is, the TDD fad is pretty much over.  Even at the peak of the trend, it never really benefitted the BizTalk apps I saw.  Lots of setup work to just not find anything.

    You time will be much better spent ensuring a comprehensive test process for post-built, which you would have to do anyway irrespective of TDD or any Unit Tests.
