Instance Method Details

#mock(name, &block) ⇒ Mock #mock(expected_methods_vs_return_values = {}, &block) ⇒ Mock #mock(name, expected_methods_vs_return_values = {}, &block) ⇒ Mock

Builds a new mock object

Examples:

Using expected_methods_vs_return_values Hash to setup expectations.

def test_motor_starts_and_stops
  motor = mock('motor', :start => true, :stop => true)
  assert motor.start
  assert motor.stop
  # an error will be raised unless both Motor#start and Motor#stop have been called
end

Using the optional block to setup expectations & stubbed methods [deprecated].

def test_motor_starts_and_stops
  motor = mock('motor') do
    expects(:start).with(100.rpm).returns(true)
    stubs(:stop).returns(true)
  end
  assert motor.start(100.rpm)
  assert motor.stop
  # an error will only be raised if Motor#start(100.rpm) has not been called
end

Yields:

  • optional block to be evaluated in the context of the mock object instance, giving an alternative way to setup stubbed methods.

  • note that the block is evaulated by calling Mock#instance_eval and so things like instance variables declared in the test will not be available within the block.

  • deprecated: use Object#tap or define stubs/expectations with an explicit receiver instead.

def mock(*arguments, &block)
  name = arguments.shift if arguments.first.is_a?(String)
  expectations = arguments.shift || {}
  mock = name ? Mockery.instance.named_mock(name, &block) : Mockery.instance.unnamed_mock(&block)
  mock.expects(expectations)
  mock
end

#sequence(name) ⇒ Sequence

Builds a new sequence which can be used to constrain the order in which expectations can occur.

Specify that an expected invocation must occur within a named Sequence by using Expectation#in_sequence.

Examples:

Ensure methods on egg are invoked in correct order.

breakfast = sequence('breakfast')

egg = mock('egg') do
  expects(:crack).in_sequence(breakfast)
  expects(:fry).in_sequence(breakfast)
  expects(:eat).in_sequence(breakfast)
end

def sequence(name)
  Sequence.new(name)
end

#states(name) ⇒ StateMachine

Builds a new state machine which can be used to constrain the order in which expectations can occur.

Specify the initial state of the state machine by using StateMachine#starts_as.

Specify that an expected invocation should change the state of the state machine by using Expectation#then.

Specify that an expected invocation should be constrained to occur within a particular state by using Expectation#when.

A test can contain multiple state machines.

Examples:

Constrain expected invocations to occur in particular states.

power = states('power').starts_as('off')

radio = mock('radio') do
  expects(:switch_on).then(power.is('on'))
  expects(:select_channel).with('BBC Radio 4').when(power.is('on'))
  expects(:adjust_volume).with(+5).when(power.is('on'))
  expects(:select_channel).with('BBC World Service').when(power.is('on'))
  expects(:adjust_volume).with(-5).when(power.is('on'))
  expects(:switch_off).then(power.is('off'))
end

#stub(name, &block) ⇒ Mock #stub(stubbed_methods_vs_return_values = {}, &block) ⇒ Mock #stub(name, stubbed_methods_vs_return_values = {}, &block) ⇒ Mock

Builds a new mock object

Examples:

Using stubbed_methods_vs_return_values Hash to setup stubbed methods.

def test_motor_starts_and_stops
  motor = stub('motor', :start => true, :stop => true)
  assert motor.start
  assert motor.stop
  # an error will not be raised even if either Motor#start or Motor#stop has not been called
end

Using the optional block to setup expectations & stubbed methods [deprecated].

def test_motor_starts_and_stops
  motor = stub('motor') do
    expects(:start).with(100.rpm).returns(true)
    stubs(:stop).returns(true)
  end
  assert motor.start(100.rpm)
  assert motor.stop
  # an error will only be raised if Motor#start(100.rpm) has not been called
end

Yields:

  • optional block to be evaluated in the context of the mock object instance, giving an alternative way to setup stubbed methods.

  • note that the block is evaulated by calling Mock#instance_eval and so things like instance variables declared in the test will not be available within the block.

  • deprecated: use Object#tap or define stubs/expectations with an explicit receiver instead.

end

#stub_everything(name, &block) ⇒ Mock #stub_everything(stubbed_methods_vs_return_values = {}, &block) ⇒ Mock #stub_everything(name, stubbed_methods_vs_return_values = {}, &block) ⇒ Mock

Builds a mock object that accepts calls to any method. By default it will return nil for any method call.

Examples:

Ignore invocations of irrelevant methods.

def test_motor_stops
  motor = stub_everything('motor', :stop => true)
  assert_nil motor.irrelevant_method_1 # => no error raised
  assert_nil motor.irrelevant_method_2 # => no error raised
  assert motor.stop
end

  • note that the block is evaulated by calling Mock#instance_eval and so things like instance variables declared in the test will not be available within the block.
