  • Lynn talks about set up in C#Direct to www.ApprovalTests.comLibrary (mandatory)DiffTool (can select type, but will want to use) VS2010 – TortoiseDiff, WinDiff, doesn’t not work with BeyondCompare yetPlug-in (optional)  right click (highlight test method)  Approve (only appears when test is failing)
  • Simple C# demo, show Console (breakpoint), Assert, Approve, Reporter with Add, then with Explain, then into Reporters (DiffHTMLDiff)Here are the steps from www.ApprovalTests.comStep 1: Create your scenario Step 2: Write that scenario in EnglishStep 3: Translate English to Code (TDD – name objects / methods FIRST)Step 4: Create Code so it works (Implement named objects / methods)Step 5: Run your test for feedback while you codeStep 6: Approve result so it continues to workStep 7: Change the requirement Step 8: See the new solution Step 9: Re-approve so it continues to work
  • Demo the VS2010 plug in, right-click ‘Approve’ – only works when test has not passed already.Contents provided are serialized to the file, depending on the Writer (which is encapsulated and associated to the method, examples:Approve(“”)*.txtApproveHtml(“”)*.htmlApprove(WinForm)*.pngApprove(IExecutableQuery)*.txt (SQL statement source generally)The act of approving allows you to take the contents of the received file and write them Namer – creates file name based on method nameWriter (depending on type, i.e. string) – inserts contents of object (i.e. string) into the new fileApprover – checks to see whether *.received file equals *.approvedReporter – called only on failure and then report (show) both files (*.approved & *.received)Received file is the contents that you gave the Writer written to the that file, the type is determined by the Writer, i.e. tiff, png
  • http://blog.approvaltests.com/2011/12/using-reporters-in-approval-tests.htmlPoint out that the reporters vary for the different (language) implementations, i.e. C#, Java, etc.. Point to the documentation!Reporter are VIEWERS for results on test FAILURE onlyIncluded reporters which are not listed are also WinDiff, BeyondCompare and CodeCompare (http://www.devart.com/codecompare/)Types – text, image, HTML, more?

  • Legacy Code demo in Java, locking test, and code coverageDo a version of this demo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJ1tRFEOkcwDo this in C#ApprovalTests.Combinations.CombinationApprovals.VerifyAllCombinations (, enum(r1Start,r1Length), enum(r2Start,r2Length)
  • Explain the syntax of ApprovalTests.Combinations.CombinationApprovals.VerifyAllCombinations (arg,arg,arg) in C# (9 overloads)Can pass  Enumerable, Array, RangeContrast to Debug.Assert (individual results) – ApprovalTests.Combinations.CombinationApprovals.VerifyAllCombinations  much richer output, here you are testing EVERY element in combination
  • Can approve ‘parts’ of a form (controls), or reports (RDLC), different types of files, such as .tiff, etc…*to test part of a Form, must make that part (control) publicC# demo using WinDiff (or TortoiseImageDiff) – new code TDD, ReSharper or VS refactoring tools?Do a version of this demo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5Y_jo4Nn54Also for ArraysThere is a header and lambda function for arrays that allows for thetesting circle.var word = "Llewellyn";Approvals.Approve(word, word.ToCharArray(), (c) => c+ " => " + (int)c);would produce:LlewellynL => 76l => 108e => 101w => 119e => 101l => 108l => 108y => 121n => 110
  • Idea here is common misconceptions, i.e. ‘why I do not do TDD’Why TDD == spec, feedback, granularity, regressionIke to tell story of ‘why’ TDD change lock.
  • Make the point that you can use ApprovalTests at all levels of testing granularity – both TDD (small) and BDD (big) AND in between – Approvals == better Asserts
