How to test an ASP.NET application
To test an ASP.NET application, you typically start by running it from within Visual Studio so that you can locate and correct any errors you encounter. This initial testing uses the default browser and, if you’re working with a filesystem web site, the ASP.NET Development Server. Next, you test the application with other web browsers to make sure it works with them, and you test a file-system web site under IIS. Finally, you run the application from outside of Visual Studio to be sure it will work correctly in a production environment.
You’ll learn the techniques for performing all of these types of testing in the topics that follow. In addition, you’ll learn how to use the Exception Assistant dialog box that’s displayed if an error occurs while you’re testing an application.
