Mobile emulators can help you pinpoint problems and issues with the website and allow you to take corrective measures to make the website visually appealing and functional on mobile devices. iPad Peek iPhone Tester As the name suggests, iPhone Tester is one of the most popular mobile emulators for iPhones. Verde. Overview Verde is an integration test and application health verification framework for ASP.Net MVC.


Integration tests are intended to automate verifying the different components of your application such as databases, web services, etc. are working together correctly. Unlike test runners integrated into Visual Studio or standalone applications, the Verde framework runs tests directly within your web application; leveraging the same configuration settings, security permissions, network topology, etc. This allows exposing issues that may not otherwise be encountered until an end-user actually starts using the application. Verde is intended to complement a robust suite of unit tests; the unit tests ensure all the individual units of work function correctly, while integration tests ensure everything works together. The easiest way to add Verde to your project is via NuGet - PM> Install-Package Verde Getting Started Here is a sample JSON response from the /execute command:
