[Mono-devel-list] Contributing Mainsoft System.Web test suite

Hi Gonzalo,
Using NUnit as the harness and the tests as a web application, is indeed one
of the options. 

The NUnit (acting as a System.Net client), need to have the following

* GET a web page (use System.NET)
* Extract the elements which participate in the test (we used DIV with ID
starting with a known prefix (for example TESTxxx)). You don't need the
whole BODY.
* XHTML in order to transform the HTML into a well formed XML. (we used
* Customized Clean the XML. To remove elements which can fail the test. For
example, ID attributes that are generated by the server, that can be
different on every GET.
* XMLDiff the result with an expected result generated previously using IIS.
We used Microsoft XMLDiffPatch. We can evaluate the XMLUnit project, and/or
create some sort of XMLAssert.

> Why don't we get just a few of those tests
I have attached small GET examples.
We have only small amount of POST tests, and I believe that it is best to
leave them out of this scope for now, since it involves extra
infrastructure. We will cover them using automatic web application testing.

Hi Rafi!

Not much to say here, but...
      * We could have a few helper method/classes and still run
        everything inside nunit.
      * Use System.Net to retrieve the documents

Why don't we get just a few of those tests (say 1 GET, 1 POST, 1 with
multiple POST...) and develop whatever is needed to do all the steps in
your document for them?
