Mocks Suck (and what to do about it)

A session at JRubyConf 2010

Mock Objects caught the developer imagination when they were introduced to the world in 2000 and there are mock object frameworks for almost as many languages as there are testing frameworks. Many teams however discover too late the pain caused by using mock objects in their tests; brittle tests, an increasing lack of confidence in the tests and an inability to safely refactor.

This talk will explore the sources of pain caused by using mock objects and present an alternative that is increasingly gaining in popularity.
