Testing in iOS - Part 17: Mocking Tests | Ray Wenderlich

Writing tests for your mock objects takes a little bit of reworking. This video walks you through the process.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.raywenderlich.com/3530-testing-in-ios/lessons/17

Because there is no discussion, I might assume most of this information confused viewers. Again, I am puzzled why the focus on testing non-production code.

@bdmoakley Do you have any feedback regarding this? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

I’d rather test the actual module than to fake or mock up a module to increase test speed. What happens if an enhancement request requires a change to the loadContent method? You have to remember to make the corresponding change in your mock module. I’d rather have the test case test the actual module than for it to run quickly, then if some change has broken something, we will know.

@bdmoakley Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

Hi, The materials is good but i would rather prefer to see how the stubbing works and what does fake mean, instead of sending an empty data, if you can make this tutorial it will be great.
