While documenting/testing Genome 3.3 I stumbled about this strange behaviour, which seems to be a bug of the C# 3.0 beta 2 compiler.

I was trying to compile the following GROUP BY example with Genome:

var ordersPerCountryPerYear1 = from o in Helper.DB.Extent()
                               group o by new { o.Customer.Address.Country, o.OrderDate.Value.Year } into g
                               select new
                               {
                                 Country = g.Key.Country,
                                 Year = g.Key.Year,
                                 OrderCount = g.Count()
                               };

And received the following error from the compiler:

error CS1061: 'System.Linq.IGrouping' does not contain a definition for 'Count' and no extension method 'Count' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Linq.IGrouping' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

However, my team insisted that the extension method Count() is provided by Genome. To find out, why the compiler does not find it, they asked me to call it directly in Main():

TechTalk.Genome.Extensions.Linq.InternalIGroupingExtensions.Count(null);

After inserting this call in my code, the program suddenly compiled (including the statement, the C# compiler complained about previously).

We think this is a bug of the compiler. As a workaround I now have the following method on one class in my project to satisfy the compiler :-) :

static void ThisIsNeverCalled()
{
  TechTalk.Genome.Extensions.Linq.InternalIGroupingExtensions.Count(null);
}

There are a lot of discussions how to properly mock an O/RM to achieve unit testing.

In this article, I will describe how an application implemented with Genome can be tested by means of unit testing. By stealing (and also modifying) the sample domain from Fowler, I’ll demonstrate this with a simple WebShop application. The use case that we are going to investigate is the ordering process itself.

The sample code used is provided for download at the end of the article. You need Genome 3.3 (beta 1) to execute the sample.

TheServerSide.Net has just published our case study about DataReturn's experiences of using Genome to rebuild website for BMW USA. The site has quite critical performance requiremens of up to 1 million sessions per day.
