Test Driven GUI Development

I read an interesting article today about test driven development and GUI applications. Unit testing is rarely seen in the context of user interfaces because the presentation and business logic are often tightly coupled. Many developers view the task as being too difficult or not worth the time. However, with the right tools and the right client architecture, test driven development is really quite simple and can help to build quality into your software.

Download one of the presenter first examples available from Atomic Objects and you'll quickly see just how easy test driven GUI development can be.  Also take a look at NMock.
