Create stub objects as arguments for system under test

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Sometimes you need to pass a stub object as an argument to a function or script that is under test. FluentShellUnit API exposes extension methods to add methods and properties on the PSObject so that the object can have the desired behavior when used in the system under test.
Function Get-VirtualDirectoryForWebApp
              [String] $Zone
       $path = $Webapplication.GetIisSettingsWithFallback($Zone).Path

The Get-VirtualDirectoryForWebApp returns the location of the virtual directory for a SharePoint webapplication by using the IisSettings object for a Zone. If you want to test
this method, you need to stub a SharePoint WebApplication and then pass it to the method.
As mentioned before, the first step is to create a PSObject and then add the required methods and properties to the object.

var webApplication = new PSObject();
var iisSettings = new PSObject();
var path = @"C:\MyWeb\wss\mywebapp";
iisSettings.StubProperty("Path", path);
webApplication.StubMethod("GetIisSettingsWithFallback", objects => objects[0].ToString() == "Default" ? iisSettings...(Read whole news on source site)

Controlling a LED with a Raspberry PI 2 using Mono and C#

My fellow MVP Peter Nowak from Germany pointed me to this awesome kit on that has this a vast array of sensors in it. It comes with 37 sensors and peripherals that can be controlled with a Raspberry PI2. It’s originally made for the PI B+, but as this is pin compatible with the PI 2 this works fine. It comes with a mini CD with sample code, but unfortunately this is all C, you need to compile it using GCC, and it’s not the kind of code that makes someone used to a more modern
development environment very happy. But I am also to impatient to let this gather dust until Windows 10 for devices becomes available. Now the code samples in C that go with this kit all use a library called wiringPI, that is created by one Gordon Henderson. I basically used this library as a foundation for getting the stuff to work with C#. You first have to install the library. Gordon has a simple step-by-step manual on how to go about on this. Simply open a console, go to the directory where you want to download the library’s...(Read whole news on source site)
