Test Isolation Is About Avoiding Mocks — Destroy All Software Blog
Gary Bernhardt's second post on the straw-men set up by those suggesting that isolated testing and/or “mocks” destroy your program’s design.
Deeply nested mocks tell us little about mocks, just as deeply nested conditionals tell us little about structured programming. Proficient users of structured programming rarely write deeply nested conditionals; proficient users of mocks rarely write deeply nested mocks.

For notes that directly apply to DHH, see GB’s [first post on TDD rhetoric][1].

A simple example spec-ing a CGRectDivide macro:

A light-weight TDD / BDD framework for Objective-C & Cocoa.

- No built-in mocking – should use OCMock/LRMocky
- Can use OCUnit assertions/matchers, but should probably be combined with something like Expecta or OCHamcrest
