A module for easily creating more realistic test data

Project Description

NonMockObjects aims to make it easy to create complicated structures representing more realistic test data, thus allowing you to write tests against your real code, not mock objects. This allows you to write high-level integration tests almost as easily as small-scale unit tests, once you build up your library of creation functions.

How to tell if you need this module: You want to run automated tests on your code, but you have a relatively complicated data model, perhaps a nicely normalized database. The bulk of your tests consist of setting up this relatively complicated data model, and the tests all break whenever you change your model. Constructing the data has become so difficult (and breaks so often) that you’ve just stopped testing entirely.

(0.2.1 is a minor documentation update.)
