There are many posts around Playwright .NET. These cover set up and running it against hosted sites.
What I didn’t find many posts on, was running Playwright .NET using Microsofts WebApplicationFactory. Why? Because it isn’t as simple as implementing the WebApplicationFactory with Playwright .NET and hitting run.
I’ll show how you can create a CustomWebApplicationFactory that will allow you to run your Playwright .NET tests locally using the WebApplicationFactory in .NET 6.
In the past, I’ve run into trouble running integration tests against docker containers. Let me give you a recent example, I’ve been working with AWS DynamoDB, when it comes to testing, I don’t want to run my integration tests against either a real or a mocked DynamoDB table. It just so happens that AWS provides us with a DynamoDB docker image, this allows us to spin up a local instance of DynamoDB inside a Docker container.
In this blog post we are going to look at the Put and Get DynamoDB operations. First we will look at how to Add ‘Put’ an item onto a DynamoDB table, then cover how we ‘Get’ either a single item or all items from a DynamoDB table.
If you haven’t already read my previous blog post on Creating an AWS DynamoDB Table in .NET Core that is a good place to start. We covered creating a DynamoDB client and assigned Access and Secret keys to the client. We then used the client to create a DynamoDB table.
Let’s start this post by looking at DynamoDBs PutItem.
