Re: [dcrug] Call for speakers - Mocks and stubs are absolutely different. I was just saying they are both broadly categorized as "test doubles" just as a Kia and Bentley are both cars. You'll enjoy the book. Good luck with the move. Neil C Feb 27, 2014 3:34 PM

Re: [dcrug] Call for speakers - Mezaros would call all of these test doubles for dependencies within the SUT (System Under Test--a fancy way of describing the class you're testing). Neil C Feb 27, 2014 3:22 PM
