Layer-based automated testing, part 3: emulating request/response scenarios in tests

This article is about using BDD and SpecFlow for testing request/response scenarios like message boxes, modal windows, interaction with peripheral devices and similar cases. I'm using the sample from previous article but in fact this article is valid for every testing system using BDD and SpecFlow.

Layer-based automated testing, part 2: registration reusable in tests

Previous article contained some general discussion on where the layer-based approach to testing is applicable. Now, let's get into details of implementation. To be able to test layers, you'll need to be able to easily separate them one from another, and easily reuse them as a whole from different entry points (from actual application, from tests, etc).

Layer-based automated testing, part 1: choosing the right testing approach

This is a series of articles about building an effective testing system of larger-scale code-driven tests for your .Net application. It shows how to use such concepts like IoC, MVVM, BDD, mocking and asynchronous programming together to minimize efforts on developing new tests and supporting old ones. Also it gives a working sample of such test-friendly architecture. Of course this approach is not applicable for all cases, but it has proven its effectiveness for many existing scenarios.
