Point/Counterpoint
May/June 2007 (vol. 24 no. 3)
pp. 80-83
"Point Argument: Mock Objects: Find Out Who Your Friends Are," by Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce. Mock objects help guide object-oriented programming by concentrating on what objects do, no what they are. "Counterpoint Argument: "TDD: Don't Much It Up with Too Many Mocks," by Joshua Kerievsky. Routinely test-driving code with mock objects leads to premature object composition, hard-to-read and fragile code, and lost time. This department is part of a special issue on test-driven development.
Index Terms:
mock objects, object-oriented programming, program testing, test-driven development
