Folks,
After having gotten a lot of blank looks about a subject that I thought should be obvious, I wrote an article for IBM DeveloperWorks on Simulated DataSources. Believe it or not, the topic first came up at the XP Universe 2001 when I was discussing testing with a bunch of XP practitioners and found that none of the Java folks (but ALL of the ex-Smalltalk folks) used this particular approach. So I I'd like your opinion on it -- is this a new idea to people, or have I just been dealing with some folks who just didn't get it?

I think it's something from both. Once you have some experience using Mockobjects, the approach becomes quite obvious, IMHO. But obviously there are also many developers not having that experience...


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
