I spoke about spying vs mocking and Mockito library at the agile 2008.
I hope I managed to popularize Mockito and the spying approach.
Someone asked me what’s the user base of Mockito. Although I don’t know the answer I can throw some figures at you:
~500 downloads last month (does not include Maven users)
One of the attendees asked me for the slides from my session at Agile2008. Bear in mind that they have less value if you didn’t attend the presentation – some slides are pretty minimal or they are just open questions. Anyway, here are the slides. Oh, and the session title “Don’t give up on mocking” is a complete mess. What I really want to convey is “Give up on mocking, go for spying”. One of my older posts sheds some light why I messed the title up.
