The purpose of the integration build is to bring potential issues to the surface as quickly as possible. Unit tests run quickly and adding them to the continuous integration build helps flush out defects as close to the beginning of the process as possible. Generally build engines will support unit test framework by directly integrating with them or by providing an ability to execute the test framework and import their results.
It can be challenging to add unit testing to a project that was built without planning to incorporate it. The ASP.Net MVC Music Store tutorial was not built with unit testing in mind, but today we’re going to walk through the addition of Controller unit tests, focusing on a controller that directly references Entity Framework objects and implicitly interacts with ASP.Net Membership objects and Request data from the current HttpContext.
A continuous integration server verifies that all of the currently committed changes play well together and reduces the elapsed time between a team member committing a change and finding out it leaves the build in a poor state. The faster we find out about a defect or unstable build, the fresher the changes are in our minds and the faster we can fix it.

In my previous post (not so long ago). I talked about the Actionlink and it not being very refactor friendly because of all the magic strings in it. But there was a strongly typed version out there somewhere that didn’t work all the time but I couldn’t find it at that time. Well it is […]
