What do you mean unit testing?

Do you mean unit testing with frameworks like NUnit, of simply unit test = testing the functionalities of function one-by-one?

Unit testings with NUnit and other stuffs needs a lot of code. It's efficient, but add +50% to the development time (or costs). This is somethint that is hard to achieve if you do custom software development...

Mostly simple unit tests and proper logging is how testing/debugging works...

NUnit like unit testing are rarely used in the .NET (at least i've never met a software company around where it's done). It's almost inpossible even to convince your employees to invest some $ for researching/learn the usage of usefull frameworks - they (who're sitting up in the big chairs) wan't profit imediately...

So i'm sick of this approaches, and will switch my employee soon - i've finally found one, where it's possible to play around with new frameworks, to teach the basics of it and to make a standard from them for a newly recruited .net team Smile | :)

C#, ASPX, SQL
