Unit testing Microsoft Graph SDK Client with moq library

According to this article, Microsoft Graph SDK 4.0, GraphServiceClient doesn't inherit IGraphServiceClient interface anymore. But this doesn't unit test more difficult as all methods are marked as virtual.

So we can simply mock all dependencies and use Setup method to mock any method for test purpose. One example we can find in the article is below.

// Arrange
var mockAuthProvider = new Mock<IAuthenticationProvider>();
var mockHttpProvider = new Mock<IHttpProvider>();
var mockGraphClient = new Mock<GraphServiceClient>(mockAuthProvider.Object, mockHttpProvider.Object);

ManagedDevice md = new ManagedDevice
    Id = "1",
    DeviceCategory = new DeviceCategory()
        Description = "Sample Description"

// setup the calls
mockGraphClient.Setup(g => g.DeviceManagement.ManagedDevices["1"].Request().GetAsync(CancellationToken.None)).Returns(Task.Run(() => md)).Verifiable();

// Act
var graphClient = mockGraphClient.Object;
var device = await graphClient.DeviceManagement.ManagedDevices["1"].Request().GetAsync(CancellationToken.None);

// Assert
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


It's even easier to mock any method with latest version of SDK.

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
