I’ve installed Windows 8 on my laptop, enabled HyperV and upgraded my TFS from 2010 to 2012. Since Lab Management 2012 introduced Standard Environments, I can use my HyperV machines in lab environments right out of Windows 8. However, while I was configuring my lab, I ran into a problem. My laptop is on my work domain, and my lab machines (running on HyperV) are not joined to the domain – they’re in a workgroup.
So you’ve just upgraded your TFS 2010 server to TFS 2012. And you’ve been using the MSF Agile 5.0 process template. When you open the Web Access webpage, you get a message saying that some features need to be enabled, and you click the link and it “upgrades” your process template so that the Backlogs and Boards work in Web Access. All looks good.
You’re a responsible developer – you write code, and then you write tests (or, perhaps you even write tests and then write code?). You also love good, solid frameworks that separate concerns and utilize dependency injection and inversion of control and all of that good stuff – you’re using MVC for your web applications.
In my post about hosted build, I discovered that if you enable code coverage on unit tests that use the Fakes framework, the unit tests fail (even though the tests pass without code coverage turned on). The error is a “ShimNotSupportedException”.
I am working on some code for the TFS Tester Power Tool with my colleague Anna Russo (who just got her first MVP award!) and we’re using TFS Preview for source control and work item tracking. From the start I wanted to get some unit tests and builds up and running. The challenge for the unit testing side was that the tool works against a Team Foundation Server, so testing required some sort of mocking or faking.
So you’re sitting down planning some tests for your shiny new code, only to find that your code uses WebClient to download a file. No problem – you’ve been reading about Microsoft’s new Fakes framework, so you just right-click the System reference in your test project and select “Create Fakes” and you get a bunch of cool fakes to work with.
In a previous post about the MS Fakes framework, I made mention of some bugs that appeared in the Beta. I finally had some time to test out the same code in the RC, and I am pleased to tell you that the bugs have been fixed (well, the ones I found anyway!).
In Part 1, we started faking some TFS objects. We got as far as faking the TeamProjectCollection and WorkItemStore. In this post, we’ll complete the test for copying work items by providing a fake QueryHierarchy and a fake list of WorkItems.
