Quick question: what do you guys/gals use for testing your applications? I'm very interested in hearing if any of you recommend a package that can test all types of apps (.Net/ASP.Net/Classic ASP/VB Apps). I'm trying to avoid if possible buying 2 packages, one for the web and one for reg. apps. Any help is appreciated.
whew it's been a long time since I've posted here. I know you've all missed me. anyway, i've made the switch to Apple at home and have working on setting up my new pbook with similiar apps that are on my wintel laptop. so far it's been very very easy. until i tried to setup mono.
there really isn't a good amount of info on the web on how to setup mono on mac and what info there is, it's all out dated. so i hunkered down on friday and started a journey that i don't think will ever be completed.
first there was the install using some of the helper apps that download build and install the software for you (fink, darwinports). after spending a few hours crunching threw those, I found out that in mono 1.0 there is a bug in XSP (the cassini web server for mono) that prevents it from being run on the mac. simple fix is to update from CVS. whelp.. that didn't go as smoothly as i would have liked, after about 5 hours of fuxing with it i gave up and it never ran. reformat, rinse and then repeat. now i'm trying to build EVERYTHING from CVS and well i've clocked about 10+ hours just building all the gnome stuff.
most of my time has been spent downloading, compiling and recompiling gnome libs. mono didn't really require all that much in the ways of prereqs it's the surrounding items like monodoc, monodevelop, gtk-sharp, gtkhtml-sharp that are killing.
So today I purchased Virtual PC and some more memory. My escape from wintel was short lived but i didn't think it was gonna be easy. I guess it's still a few more months with XP ;).
