We are looking for a solution for running for running fast test on Dataobjects.Net entities.

Ideally we would like to use entities without ever hitting the databse in a test.

Do you have any tip on how to achieve this?

One Answer:

Hello olorin,

Could you provide a general example of such test. Do you need just not saving data to a database or completely detached from database behavior?

Hello Alexey,

Example 1 : Let's say I have a persistent business object : an Order. This object has order lines (EntitySet) and lots of properties. I want to export this object to a XML file. I want to write a test verifying the export XML file has the expected content.

Example 2 : I want to verify my order changed status correctly based on complex business rules when it is ready to be prepared in the warehouse. For example some items may be stored in a different warehouse, so two packages must be prepared.

With lots of entities, such a test takes: 30s (domain start time) + 1s to 1 minute by test. Based on our experience, if we could run the test completely in memory without any IO, it could run in under a second.
