New WCF REST Hands On Lab Drop

Just released the November 2008 version of the WCF REST Starter Kit Hands On Lab.  This drop now includes a full lab on the REST Collection template.  With unit test coverage that demonstrates testing of a RESTful service for GET, PUT, POST and DELETE operations against the collection.

Be sure to check it out and let me know what you think!

    Hi Rob,

    The tests you have implemented for this solution are more integration tests that unit tests. They require setting up all the WCF channel infrastrure, and the services are tested as a black box with no possibility to mock some dependencies like the CohoDB component. Anyway, good work, this kind of guidance is quite useful.

    Thanks Pablo – yes they are integration tests – unfortunately Visual Studio doesn’t allow me to call them that.  Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to label tests according to purpose?

    Anyway – glad to know it helps.
