The expectLastCall() method refers to the last expect() called. So for example if you did the second line would be modifying the object returned from the first line so when the method is called it returns a specific value.

Normally an expect() would indicate the method should be called exactly one. But you can tell it to expect the method a certain number of times using the times() method. Our you can say the method must be called at least once, but maybe more than once using the. AtLeastOnce() method.

So in your code you have this


You are saying the method getPath() should be called, when it is called it should return "/content" and it must be called at least once but it is allowed to be called 2 or 3 or any number of times greater than 1.
