( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
At work I have used Test::More and family to build a framework for unit testing an application server + business logic modules.

It involved making xml calls to the server and see that the correct values are returned, and that the database contents changes accordlingly.

For this I wrote a generic Perl client to call the application server, Test::More for the returned values and Test::DatabaseRow for testing the database. The rest looks like any ordinary .t script.

This iterative, low ceremony setup proved to be orders of magnitude more productive than writing unit tests in C++.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
