Join Chiu-Ki Chan for an in-depth discussion in this video Why extract dependencies?, part of Advanced Android Espresso Testing.
- [Instructor] We extracted our external dependency…by creating a class called clock…and creating an application to provide that.…Why?…We put the clock in application…because the testing framework…has a mechanism to instantiate…a different application during test.…By placing the external dependency in the application…we can provide a different one during test.…
Instead of a clock that returns the actual time…we'll have it return a fixed time during test.…That way we know how our UI should behave…given that time rather than depending on…what time we run the test…and we're not able to verify what the app should do.…Next we will write that test application.…
