- [Voiceover] The Android STK provides several mock objects…in the android.test.mock package.…Some of these would be classified as stub or dummy types…under stricter testing terms discussed in this chapter.…The API includes mock objects for…the types you see listed in this table.…These Android types are often needed to be passed…as parameters in a number of Android APIs,…or used to get Android resources,…such as databases, preferences, etc.…The advantage of using these mock objects…is that they come with the Android STK.…
As these are provided by the STK,…simply use the API in your tests.…The mock objects are made part of the test package…along with test classes, instrumentation…code and JUnit code when required.…Calling a method on most of these mock objects…causes an unsupported operation exception to be thrown.…The mock objects are non-functional empty shells.…You need to provide your implementation…for methods your code exercises during testing.…Remember, a mock object is a stand in,…or place holder object for the real object.…
