Writing ssisUnit Tests With C#

Bartosz Ratajczyk shows us how to create ssisUnit tests in MSTest with C#:

In the post about using MSTest framework to execute ssisUnit tests, I used parts of the ssisUnit API model. If you want, you can write all your tests using this model, and this post will guide you through the first steps. I will show you how to write one of the previously prepared XML tests using C# and (again) MSTest.

Why MSTest? Because I don’t want to write some application that will contain all the tests I want to run, display if they pass or not. When I write the MSTest tests, I can run them using the Test Explorer in VS, using a command line, or in TFS.

UIs are great for learning how to do things and for one-off actions, but writing code scales much better in terms of time.
