test-driven development usable for us

Posted by agent_008_nl on 17-Mar-2010 08:46

Using Fowlers "passive screen" has some advantages (http://martinfowler.com/eaaDev/PassiveScreen.html), one of them is making test-driven development (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-driven_development , you can find critisism there too) possible. Anybody thought about TDD, is it interesting for us GUI for .NET programmers? In which cases would you consider it usable and which not?


Kind regards,

I think the principles of test-driven development certainly can be used for ABL applications.  I've periodically toyed with the idea of porting JUnit or NUnit to ABL, which would be much easier now with GUI for .NET.  Writing an Assert class would be a good first step.
