Re: [stp-dev] Consider Easymock as a tool for testing in STP/Eclipse?

Hi All,

End users also need a framework to mock service during product development.

Maybe we can do some research on how to extend the Easymock framework to mock service mock in soa development. For example, create mock service from wsdl + xml input data...etc.

Hi all,

I was thinking that using Easymock in the test fragments would make
writing some of the unit tests quite a bit easier. Esp when big
interfaces need to be mocked (such as IFile or IProject) it would help a

I have used EasyMock ( quite a bit in the past,
and although it requires some 'getting used to it' I have found it a
great tool for creating mockobjects in unit tests. EasyMock has an MIT
license which I think is compatible with EPL.
I did quick search in IPZilla but didnt find any previous requests for
EasyMock or any other Mock object systems. So I guess if we can agree
that EasyMock is good, I could start by filing a CQ/IPZilla entry to get
it approved into Eclipse.

Anyone any thoughts?
