After further ado, we finally shipped the Web Client Software Factory. Glenn and Michael describe what is in the new release. I want to highlight a couple of things from the release.
Another item that I want to highlight is that we released WatiN Automated Acceptance tests. There are a number of good automated acceptance tools on the market. This one works well for our requirements. You can download WatiN from here. When you look at the source code, you will find solution files with "FunctionalTests" in the name. In order to run the these tests, you will need to have the WatiN dll.
Please give us feedback as how much you use the automated acceptance tests. In a later blog post, we will provide information as to how you can maintain the acceptance tests.
Note: this is a link to an external Web site that provides software that can be used to write acceptance tests. Please note that Microsoft is not responsible for the content of external Internet sites. This is for the lawyers.
We have received feedback that you really like the bundle documentation on the Web. Based upon this feedback, we plan to put all the Web Client Software Factory documentation on MSDN. This will take time as we figure out so keep checking back on www.msdn.com/webclientfactory.
