Unit test Commerce projects with FakeMaker

FakeMaker is updated with support for unit testing Episerver Commerce code. I am very excited about this and hope it will be useful in your projects. The new version is made with contributions and feedback by users of FakeMaker. Thank you! 

Install the new plugin to FakeMaker - called FakeMaker.Commerce - from NuGet, or check out the source code on GitHub. The package currently suppport basic unit testing scenarios. What kind of features are missing? Contact me by creating a GitHub issue, sending a pull request or just write a comment on this blog.

What is FakeMaker?
FakeMaker takes care of mocking and a simplifies creating fake content, that you can use when testing your code.

Unit testing the EPiServer CMS got a whole lot easier alredy with version 7. However, creating fake content to be used when setting up mocked repositories isn't always that smooth. When mocking of code is all you see on your screen, this little library may help. A bigger screen probably also would, but is probably more expensive. FakeMaker make it easier to write unit tests for mvc controllers and helpers that expect the episerver repositories to return content. And now also for creating fake Commerce content.

How does the Commerce support work?
Just like when creating fake pages in FakeMaker

var page = FakePage.Create("MyPageName");

you can create fake products with FakeMaker.Commerce in the same way:

var product = FakeProduct.Create<ProductContent>("My Fake Product");

Add pages and products to the repository and you are ready to go.
