I have just come across JMock and haven't quite got the hang of it yet. I have a class called JabberAccountManager. It has a few methods that perform account management operations. Every method internally creates an object of type XMPPConnection (which is a part of an XMPP library)
Now, I want to mock the Jabber server so I need to create a mock XMPPConnection object, but my problem is that the class I need to test and the class I need to mock are tightly coupled. I cannot de-couple these since there are a lot of issues involved.
Could someone please explain to me how to go about using JMock in a case like this?
