Wojciech Sznapka's Blog:
Why Mockery is better than PHPUnit Mock Builder (with Symfony2)
November 02, 2011 @ 13:02:06

Wojciech Sznapka has a new post today sharing his opinions as to why Mockery is better than PHPUnit Mock Builder in testing Symfony2-based applications.

Recently I did a lot of Test Driven Development on my Symfony2 bundle. I used PHPUnit's built-in mocks and stubs for many projects, so I took it again. But while I was working on mocking Symfony2 core objects I found those mocks very uncomfortable in use. I tried Mockery and it saved my day. Let's see how to get it working with Symfony2 and how it kicks ass!

He shows how to get things set up - adding Mockery to the dependencies file (deps), getting the latest version from their git repository and an example mock method that shows the difference in mocking the Doctrine2 entity manager - PHPUnit vs Mockery.
