GeneralIs AWS Lambda development really this lame? Pin

1. debugging in Visual Studio is pathetic -- it requires this alpha release of their test tool. Really?

2. Instead of hitting the endpoint at localhost:5050, you have to create the JSON that simulates the input as it comes in to the lambda function.

3. When using the alpha test tool (I can see why they call it "alpha") your function handler has to be defined with a JObject parameter. Can't use Stream, even though that works just great otherwise.

4. Apparently it has no clue how to load dependent assemblies. Which means any additional project references fail with an "assembly not found" error.

5. So to do any testing, I end up having to publish the function because that's the only way to "debug" it -- with try-catch handlers and "contract" tests to figure out what's wrong.

I can write a better test tool in a day, what moron do they have working on this. Hmmm. Good 4th of July project. Smile | :) Maybe someone's already done this? Don't want to re-invent the wheel, haha, though many wheels I find are rather flat, broken, and lying in a rut covered in mud.

Microsoft has Amazon beat hands down on this stuff.

And why doesn't the "Normal" view for CP lounge messages stick? It's stuck in "Open All" right now. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
