NAME

Test::Mock::Class::Role::Meta::Class - Metaclass for mock class

DESCRIPTION

This role provides an API for defining and changing behavior of mock class.

ATTRIBUTES

mock_base_object_role : Str = "Test::Mock::Class::Role::Object"

Base object role for mock class. The default is Test::Mock::Class::Role::Object.

mock_ignore_methods_regexp : RegexpRef = "/^(_?mock_|(can|DEMOLISHALL|DESTROY|DOES|does|isa|VERSION)$)/"

Regexp matches method names which are not created automatically for mock class.

mock_constructor_methods_regexp : RegexpRef = "/^new$/"

Regexp matches method names which are constructors rather than normal methods.

CONSTRUCTORS

create_mock_class( name : Str, :class : Str, args : Hash ) : Moose::Meta::Class

Creates new Moose::Meta::Class object which represents named mock class. It automatically adds all methods which exists in original class, except those which matches mock_ignore_methods_regexp attribute.

If new method exists in original class, it is created as constructor.

The method takes additional arguments:

class

Optional class parameter is a name of original class and its methods will be created for new mock class.

methods

List of additional methods to create.

The constructor returns metaclass object.

  Test::Mock::Class->create_mock_class(
      'IO::File::Mock' => ( class => 'IO::File' )
  );
create_mock_anon_class( :class : Str, args : Hash ) : Moose::Meta::Class

Creates new Moose::Meta::Class object which represents anonymous mock class. Optional class parameter is a name of original class and its methods will be created for new mock class.

Anonymous classes are destroyed once the metaclass they are attached to goes out of scope.

The constructor returns metaclass object.

  my $meta = Test::Mock::Class->create_mock_anon_class(
      class => 'File::Temp'
  );

METHODS

add_mock_method( method : Str ) : Self

Adds new method to mock class. The behavior of this method can be changed with mock_return and other methods.

add_mock_constructor( method : Str ) : Self

Adds new constructor to mock class. This is almost the same as add_mock_method but it returns new object rather than defined value.

The calls counter is set to 1 for new object's constructor.

_construct_mock_class( :class : Str, :methods : ArrayRef ) : Self

Constructs mock class based on original class. Adds the same methods as in original class. If original class has new method, the constructor with this name is created.

SEE ALSO

Test::Mock::Class.

BUGS

The API is not stable yet and can be changed in future.
