"Look What You Can Do with Silveright 2" Part 5: Testing Framework

  • Comments 0

In the fifth part of our series, we examined Unit Testing in Silverlight 2.  Not only did we release the source code to many Silverlight 2 controls, we shipped over 1500 unit tests that target them.  We also shipped a very robust Silverlight Testing Framework that was built on the Visual Studio Team System unit test framework.  This enables developers to write API-level and UI-level tests for their Silverlight applications.
