Testing Tools for Smart Device Projects

Visual Studio 2008

Smart device programmability includes testing tools for smart devices that enable you to create, manage, edit, and run tests for device applications built on the .NET Compact Framework. The most important feature that smart device testing tools provide is the ability to create unit tests for smart device projects and to run the tests on physical devices or emulators. This design enables you to validate the application's code on an actual device. In Visual Studio 2005, unit testing was only available for applications built on the full .NET Framework. In Visual Studio 2008, these capabilities extend to applications built on the .NET Compact Framework. The result is a set of testing tools for smart devices that use the same familiar Visual Studio user interface.

NoteNote:

To be able to use these tools, you must install Smart Device Programmability. Testing tools are not available for native C++ smart device projects.
