class FlexMock::Recorder

Translate arbitrary method calls into expectations on the given mock object.

Public Class Methods

Create a method recorder for the mock mock.

# File lib/flexmock/recorder.rb, line 24
def initialize(mock)
  @mock = mock
  @strict = false
end

Public Instance Methods

method_missing(sym, *args, &block) click to toggle source

Record an expectation for receiving the method sym with the given arguments.

# File lib/flexmock/recorder.rb, line 59
def method_missing(sym, *args, &block)
  location = caller.first
  expectation = @mock.flexmock_define_expectation(location, sym).and_return(&block)
  if strict?
    args = args.collect { |arg| eq(arg) }
    expectation.with(*args).ordered.once
  else
    expectation.with(*args)
  end
  expectation

Place the record in strict mode. While recording expectations in strict mode, the following will be true.

  • All expectations will be expected in the order they were recorded.

  • All expectations will be expected once.

  • All arguments will be placed in exact match mode, including regular expressions and class objects.

Strict mode is usually used when giving the recorder to a known good algorithm. Strict mode captures the exact sequence of calls and validate that the code under test performs the exact same sequence of calls.

The recorder may exit strict mode via a should_be_strict(false) call. Non-strict expectations may be recorded at that point, or even explicit expectations (using should_receieve) can be specified.

# File lib/flexmock/recorder.rb, line 48
def should_be_strict(is_strict=true)
  @strict = is_strict
end
