Folks,
After having gotten a lot of blank looks about a subject that I thought should be obvious, I wrote an article for IBM DeveloperWorks on Simulated DataSources. Believe it or not, the topic first came up at the XP Universe 2001 when I was discussing testing with a bunch of XP practitioners and found that none of the Java folks (but ALL of the ex-Smalltalk folks) used this particular approach. So I I'd like your opinion on it -- is this a new idea to people, or have I just been dealing with some folks who just didn't get it?

I think it's something from both. Once you have some experience using Mockobjects, the approach becomes quite obvious, IMHO. But obviously there are also many developers not having that experience...
