TinyORM on Git

5th, March 2012
TinyORM is a small Object Relational Mapper (ORM) for .NET that I made for a project at work. I have decided to open source this project as I was quite proud of it, especially in the short time it was made and with no planning behind it.

What it currently supports:
  • MS Sql
  • Executing SQL and using the 1st table to map to a new instance of an object via generics and reflection

Future plans:
  • Unit tests in a BDD manner
  • Saving of objects to tables
  • Column mapping and routing
  • DB abstraction to allow the framework use other storage methods
  • Keep it as lightweight as possible

It is open source, so feel free to take a look on Git:

Mocking is hard but rewarding..or Is.It

3rd, December 2011
As I continue to pummel my project with new Unit Tests (still no new development for a long time), I am learning much about NUnit and Mocking/Moq.

While attempting to mock a function that takes in 3 parameters and returns a Boolean, I wanted my test to accommodate for 3 particular properties that should return TRUE to the calling function that I am testing. I initially attempted to do the following:
