Nunit - Has anybody used it?
There isn't much of a learning curve really, i've been using NUnit for the last week or two.
Yes, I use NUnit all the time. It has a very shallow learning curve so don't worry about that. The bigger challenge will be getting into the Test Driven Development mindset.
I concur with the other posts. If you can't get it installed and start writing tests in under 2 hours (and that's a long time), then there's something wrong. The learning curve is not much of a curve at all. It's a well thought out, simple, and clean tool. Highly recommended.
If you like NUnit and use visual studio.net I highly recommend NUnit Addin. With it you can just right-click on a test method, test class, or test project and all the tests are run. If a test fails you can double click on the stack trace lines and be taken to the appropriate line of source code.
Don't forget to surround URLs with spaces:
"It has a very shallow learning curve so don't worry about that."
That all depends on the scale of the graph. Are you in marketing? With the proper axis you can make learning MFC look like coding basic.
I agree, NUnit is easy to learn. The hard bit is figuring out how to test the parts of your app which touch databases and GUIs. Writing tests that involve neither GUI nor database is relatively easy and, while your mileage may vary, it can pay off even in short projects. Tests that involve GUIs and databases are harder to do (well).
If you want to do UI based Testing with ASP.NET I can reccommend NUnitASP. A pretty good into to it all (easier that the NUnit tutorial anyway!) is at:
sorry... 'pretty good INTRO to it all' .... fat fingers today!
