Series of posts about Test Doubles by Polteq’s Testautomation Specialist David Baak
In a series of posts about Test Doubles technical test consultant David Baak looked at the manual and tool-aided creation of a dummy object and the use of the test stub. In this blog post he discusses the creation of a Test Spy. A Test Spy is a more capable version of a Test Stub. It can be used to verify the indirect outputs of the SUT by giving the test a way to inspect them after exercising the SUT.
Since David already covered the Test Stub, this post is about the verification of indirect outputs.
