By adding MSBuild as a new Build System, it is possible to build Visual Studio projects and solutions without the Visual Studio IDE installed.
Adding the Source Code
File menu, click
Open Folder... and select the root folder of the project to be compiled.
Adding the new Build System
Build System, and click
New Build System...
Paste the following code to a file:
Save the file as
Build System, and select
Running the Build
Tools menu, and select
Build. Alternatively, use the
In the above screenshot, on line 38 a semicolon has been intentionally removed for the demo. After running a build, the compiler detects the missing semicolon.
What about the Tests?
Currently, the easiest way to run the tests is by using a command-line interface version of the test runner.
We should always commit to revision control with care.
Often, developers provide commit messages that are incomplete, lowercase, with orthographic permutations. Even worse, snapshots can contain code that doesn’t even compile.
In a signed document the rules and regulations can be altered and then another document is going to be created and signed, but the original document will always remain signed.
After a snapshot has been recorded it acts like a signature for the developer – should we ever put our signature roughly?
Usually, every time you create a new Web API project you:
- Delete almost all the generated code.
- Uninstall NuGet packages that you don’t need (yet, or at all).
- Remove unused assembly references.
- Manually edit the
Web.configfile(s) to remove the elements that point to the assemblies which have been removed.
It will add a new project template
Empty Web API which includes the following:
favicon.ico file is included because the browser requests it so it’s better not to respond with a 404 Not Found.
You may install Newtonsoft.Json through NuGet:
PM> Install-Package Newtonsoft.Json
Depending on the configuration, the Newtonsoft.Json package
is included because it is can be lazy loaded inside the
In unit testing, there are times were the SUT has to be exercised asynchronously.
How can we wait for the exercise to complete execution?
- An instance of the SUT can be created on the main thread.
- The main (waiting) thread spins in user mode while starting the exercise of the SUT asynchronously.
- Once the result has been received, the execution continues on the main thread.
- The assertion takes place.
- Once the
Taskhas been created it is immediately scheduled for execution by calling the
- As long as the unit test runs fast, the waiting thread spins in user mode, which is a good thing.
There is also a SpinUntil overload accepting a TimeSpan timeout.
Numbers in AutoFixture are currently created using a strictly monotonically increasing sequence.
Starting with version 2.13.0, by applying a specific customization numbers can also be created using a constrained non-deterministic sequence. The new customization is called
Once the customization has been applied to a
Fixture instance subsequent requests for numeric types will yield random non-repeatable numbers in the range of [1, 255]. When requesting more than 255 numbers the range is automatically changed to [256, 32767] and so on.
Supplying a custom range
To supply a custom range, customize an instance of the Fixture class with an instance of the
RandomNumericSequenceGenerator and pass to its constructor a sequence of integer numbers (e.g.
-100, 100, 255).
After applying the customization, numbers are now created in the range of [-100, 100]. However, when requesting more numbers than the range size the range is automatically changed to [101, 255].
