  • How-to: Run Standard Tests against Your Code

    Let's confess before I start: getting standard tests to run against your code is by no means rocket science. However, I dare say many peers out there haven't even touched the Test Toolkit, seemingly looking at it as an unbearable threshold. Too much work. Of no relevance to their code. Unknown = unloved (as my mother used to say). Clearly the majority of the audience I have been speaking to on the Test Automation Suite in the last year and a half, never laid hands on it.
