Hello everyone, I just reviewed the weekly iteration, “Stubs, Mocks, Spies, and Fakes”. It is really good and I enjoy it. I have a few questions regarding the code in the video.
describe "#solution" do solution = double("solution") clone = double("clone", solution: solution) participation = Participation.new(clone: clone) result = participation.solution expect(clone).to have_received(:solution) expect(result).to eq(solution) end
Firstly, what’s the differences between
Participation.new(clone: clone) and
Participation.new(clone) ? Are there any reasons we should use which one other than another?
In addition, since we are have
clone = double("clone", solution: solution), shouldn’t the receiver of
solution method be
clone instead of
result = clone.solution)
These are my questions regarding the video. Thank you!
