ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Test Driven Development: Problem - Design - Solution (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)by Emad Ibrahim
Synopses & Reviews
ASP.NET MVC offers you control over generated HTML and scripts, clean and user-friendly URLs, and clean separation between your UI and code. While traditional ASP.NET Web Forms are beneficial for rapid web development, they are not test-friendly. Thankfully, Test Driven Development (TDD) and ASP.NET MVC provide you with a reliable methodology that decreases the risk for errors when developing web applications. Together, ASP.NET MVC and TDD are direct and clear about what is happening on your page, what gets rendered, and how it gets there, and they do not allow anything to appear that you didn't put there yourself.
This practical guide shows you how to write a real-world web site from conception to production. After a detailed description of the project you'll build, you'll encounter several problems during the process and learn the tools and techniques necessary to solve them. Each chapter introduces the various concepts and features of ASP.NET MVC that will help you implement a solution to a specific problem. Along the way, you'll be exposed to all facets of web application development, such as requirements, design, testing, deployment, beta releases, refactoring, and tool and framework selection, that will arm you with a thorough understanding of best practices for web development using TDD.
What you will learn from this book
Who this book is for
This book is for developers who are interested in improving their web application development skills. No previous experience of working with ASP.NET MVC is assumed. ASP.NET examples are shown in C#.
Wrox Problem – Design – Solution references give you solid, workable solutions to real-world development problems. Each is devoted to a single application, analyzing every problem, examining relevant design issues, and implementing the ideal solution.
A hands-on journey takes you through the development process of a Web application from concept to production
ASP.NET MVC is a new Web development framework created by Microsoft as an alternative to ASP.NET web forms applications. MVC is well suited to testability, and Test Driven Development (TDD) affords you a generous level of control while also making MVC very powerful and extensible. This book takes the ASP.NET MVC and combines it with a testing methodology and tools and guides you through the process of taking Web application from concept to production.
Using a complete working sample application that demonstrates all the tools needed to build an e-commerce Web application, the popular Problem – Design – Solution format gradually introduces you to new alternative tools, frameworks, and methodologies to get you started creating cutting-edge Web applications.
As you work with all facets of Web application development-requirements, design, testing, deployment, beta releases, refactoring, tool, and framework selection-you will have developed a live Web application by the time the book is finished.
Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
