Since these applications will most likely manage high-value assets and sensitive information, testing DIApps is a crucial step in the process before and after the deployment of all the modules in the network. Ensuring the correctness and lasting service of the application is critical for businesses and hence, it is a very important aspect of the development life cycle to bring back rigorous testing practices into the process.
Let's now go through the key highlights of the testing and deployment processes for a DIApp.
Authoring the test cases
Before the software can be deployed, we can try to ensure the correctness of the software and also confirm the fitness of the runtime environment by running a few crucial tests. Usually, these tests are implemented within the source code, in the form of unit test files containing dummy input values being passed to the functions, later checked through assertion to ensure the correctness of the software in the relatively new environment...
