.Automated Testing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

By: Luc van Vugt

Overview of this book

Dynamics 365 Business Central is the new cloud-based SaaS ERP proposition from Microsoft. It’s not as simple as it used to be way back when it was called Navigator, Navision Financials, or Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision. Our development practices are becoming more formal, and with this, the call for test automation is pressing on us. This book will teach you to leverage testing tools available with Dynamics 365 Business Central to perform automated testing. We’ll begin with a quick introduction to automated testing, followed by an overview of test automation in Dynamics 365 Business Central. Then you’ll learn to design and build automated tests and we’ll go through some efficient methods to get from requirements to application and testing code. Lastly, you’ll learn to incorporate your own and Microsoft tests into your daily development practice. By the end of the book, you’ll be able to write your own automated tests for Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Test Design

Having had a look at the testability framework, the Test Tool, and the standard tests and libraries, I have shown you what is available in the platform and the application that will allow you to create and execute automated tests. And that's what we are going to do in this part of this book. But let's step back and not just bluntly dive into creating code. Firstly, I would like to introduce a couple of concepts and design patterns that will allow you to conceive your tests more effectively and efficiently. At the same time, these concepts will make your tests not just a technical exercise and will help you to get your entire team involved.

I am surely not going to bother you with formal test documentation and the top-down approach with eight defined stages, from test plan, through test design/case specification to test summary report. That's way out...
