Watch Me Code, Episode 10

With Episode 9 we have a plugin providing almost all the functionality we need. Now is the time for testing!

This episode reviews the different strategies we could employ to test an online service such as the Apache hosted GitWeb service that we are using. In the end, we select one strategy and implement a few tests using that strategy.

If you are interested in examining my work so far, you can look at the GitHub code snapshot as of the end of this video.

Between this video and the next I wrote some more tests and fixed some bugs that I found in the process of testing. If you are interested in examining the additional tests, you can look at the GitHub code snapshot after the tests were added.
