This course explains what you need to test, debug, and deploy a .NET application. The course details the methods used to test an application, including using classes in the .NET framework for testing and debugging an application at runtime. Deployment tools are discussed with XCOPY, Windows Installer, and Web-based deployment methods. Monitoring, configuring and securing an application are also examined in order to obtain optimal performance in a dynamic setting.


  • Understand the different types of testing: unit, integration, and regression.
  • Implement tracing using the Trace and Debug classes including trace listeners and switches.
  • Perform step-by-step debugging using .NET debugging features.
  • Create a setup program that allows an application to be deployed using removable media or through Web-based or network-based deployment.
  • Monitor an application's performance through the use of the Process, Event Log, and Performance Counter classes.
  • Configure the security level and role-based authorizations and permissions for an application.
