Rebecca Zeckoski is senior geospatial developer for Patrick Engineering. Her current focus is developing GIS software to streamline field work for linemen at large utility companies.
Automated unit testing is a useful part of any well-designed application. However, it is problematic to run automated tests for an offline ArcGIS runtime application on a machine without access to side-loaded data (e.g., a build server), as so much of ArcGIS runtime code ultimately depends on non-creatable map objects like geodatabases. We will present our solution to this issue, a methodology that allows mocking of ArcGIS data objects for use in automated unit testing.
