Essential Windows Azure App Testing Techniques

Developers use a variety of testing methodologies to test Windows Azure applications, including the unit testing of frameworks, mocking of the frameworks themselves and automated unit testing. Since there is so much involved in the testing process, we'll outline some essential Windows Azure testing techniques here.
