What are Mocks?


          “Mock objects are simulated
          objects that mimic the behavior of
          real objects in controlled ways”
                          - Wikipedia

When to Mock?

Use mocks when you want to:

• Control the behavior of internal method calls

• Remove dependence on external systems

• Improve test performance

Control Behavior

How do we test?


                                                                                   Magic happens

Remove Dependencies

Example: retrieve response data via HTTP




To test this, we need to mock:
 • Call to URI#parse
 • Calls to Net::HTTP#new and Net::HTTP#head

Conclusion


• Newest versions of gems contain similar features

• FlexMock can accept blocks for further mocking

• Personal preference of syntax is the deciding factor
