Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1050) Introduce a mock object testing framework
Date Mon, 12 Oct 2009 16:47:31 GMT

Tom White commented on MAPREDUCE-1050:
--------------------------------------

I think this could be committed after being checked by Hudson, the only thing that I'm not
sure about is the names of the test classes, which end "WithMocks" to differentiate them from
the existing tests. Any suggestions?

> Using mock objects in unit tests can improve code quality (see e.g. http://www.mockobjects.com/).
Hadoop would benefit from having a mock object framework for developers to write unit tests
with. Doing so will allow a wider range of failure conditions to be tested and the tests will
run faster.
