An AnythingActivator will make an extreme effort to find and instantiate a concrete class which is assignable to a Type, whether or not the Type is concrete, whether or not the Type has constructor dependencies, whether or not a suitable concrete subtype is found in any currently loaded Assembly.

The attempt to find and instantiate suitable Types is rule-driven.

There are three kinds of IActivateAnythingRule.

  • IFindTypeRule provides rules for where to look for candidate concrete subtypes of an abstract type
  • IActivateInstanceRule simply returns an instance of a concrete type.
  • IChooseConstructorRule rules for how to choose between constructors when a concrete Type has been chosen.

The <em>extremity</em> of the effort lies in its recursive attempt to find and construct the <em>dependencies</em>.

Don't spend hours writing code to mock a dozen dependencies, and more hours debugging it. Just write your test code, and let FixtureBase create the dependencies for you. FixtureBase constructs your UnitUnderTest to test your codebase end-to-end, with external dependencies auto-faked and automatically injected in just the right place; even constructor dependencies that are several layers deep. You just write your tests: ``` public class FixtureBaseExample : FixtureBaseWithDbAndHttpFor<AUseCase> { [Fact] public void UUTSendsDataToDb() { var newDatum = new Datum{Id=99, Name="New!" }; UnitUnderTest.InsertDb(newDatum); Db.ShouldHaveInserted("Data",newDatum); } [Fact] public void UUTreturnsDataFromDbQuerySingleColumn() { var dbData = new[] { "row1", "row2", "row3", "row4"}; Db.SetUpForQuerySingleColumn(dbData); UnitUnderTest.FromDbStrings().ShouldEqualByValue(dbData); } [Fact] public async Task UUTGetHttpReturnsDataFromService() { var contentFromService = "IGotThis!"; HttpClient .Setup(m => true) .Returns(new HttpResponseMessage(HttpStatusCode.OK) {Content = new StringContent(contentFromService)}); (await UnitUnderTest.GetHttp()).ShouldBe(contentFromService); HttpClient.Verify(x=>x.Method==HttpMethod.Get); } } ```   The included examples demonstrate FixtureBases for applications which depend on Ado.Net IDbConnections and on HttpClient network connections. - To create your own FixtureBase with your own preferred Fakes, see the examples at <> - For how it's done, see <> Construction is done by - [ActivateAnything](   Faking is done by - [TestBase.AdoNet]( - [TestBase.HttpClient.Fake]( For more tools focussed on cutting the cost of unit testing, see also: - [TestBase]( - [TestBase.AspNetCore.Mvc]( - [TestBase-Mvc]( - [TestBase.AdoNet]( - [TestBase.HttpClient.Fake]( - [Serilog.Sinks.ListOfString]( - [Extensions.Logging.ListOfString](
