Unit testing code which uses Umbraco v4 API
I'm trying to write a suite of integration tests, where I have custom code which uses the Umbraco API. The Umbraco database lives in a SQL Server CE 4.0 database (*.sdf file) and I've managed to get that association working fine.
My problem looks to be dependancies in the Umbraco code. For example, I would like to create a new user for my tests, so I try:
var user = User.MakeNew("developer", "developer", "mypassword", "firstname.lastname@example.org", adminUserType);
Now as you can see, I have pass a user type which is an object. I've tried two separate ways to create the user type, both of which fail due to a null object exception:
var adminUserType = UserType.GetUserType(1); var adminUserType2 = new UserType(1);
The problem is that in each case the UserType code calls it's Cache method which uses the HttpRuntime class, which naturally is null.
My question is this: Can someone suggest a way of writing integration tests against Umbraco code? Will I have to end up using a mocking framework such as TypeMock or JustMock?
Here are some resources that may help:
