Unit Testing with BizTalk Server Projects

BizTalk Server introduced a unit testing feature that can be enabled on the Deployment property page of a BizTalk project. The following screenshot shows this project setting accessed from Project Designer when you right-click a project and click the Properties.

This feature allows you to create unit tests for schemas, maps, and pipelines. The topics in this section provide some example approaches to using the unit testing feature. When this feature is enabled and the project rebuilt, the artifact classes will be derived from the following base classes to support unit testing.

Artifact type Base class
Schema Microsoft.BizTalk.TestTools.Schema.TestableSchemaBase
Map Microsoft.BizTalk.TestTools.Mapper.TestableMapBase
Pipeline Microsoft.BizTalk.TestTools.Pipeline.TestablePipelineBase
