Subject Re: Best Practice for testing code that uses provided dependencies
Date Sun, 27 Oct 2013 23:59:47 GMT
I’m actually running into the same issue, and my plan was s to take advantage of the situation
to provide test versions of the classes. What I found was that the “provided” dependency
wound up in the test class path.

So I think that the fact that it is provided should have no impact on how you test it.
