NAME

       Test2::Tools::Mock - Class/Instance mocking for Test2.

DESCRIPTION

       Mocking is often an essential part of testing. This library covers some of the most common
       mocking needs. This plugin is heavily influenced by Mock::Quick, but with an improved API.
       This plugin is also intended to play well with other plugins in ways Mock::Quick would be
       unable to.

SYNOPSIS

           my $mock = mock 'Some::Class' => (
               track => $BOOL, # Enable/Disable tracking on subs defined below

               add => [
                   new_method => sub { ... },
               ],
               override => [
                   replace_method => sub { ... },
               ],
               set => [
                   replace_or_inject => sub { ... },
               ],

               track => $bool, # enable/disable tracking again to effect mocks made after this point
               ..., # Argument keys may be repeated
           );

           Some::Class->new_method();        # Calls the newly injected method
           Some::Class->replace_method();    # Calls our replacement method.

           $mock->override(...) # Override some more

           $mock = undef; # Undoes all the mocking, restoring all original methods.

           my $simple_mock = mock {} => (
               add => [
                   is_active => sub { ... }
               ]
           );

           $simple_mock->is_active();        # Calls our newly mocked method.

EXPORTS

   DEFAULT
       mock
           This is a one-stop shop function that delegates to one of the other methods depending
           on how it is used. If you are not comfortable with a function that has a lot of
           potential behaviors, you can use one of the other functions directly.

       $mock = mocked($object)
       $mock = mocked($class)
           Check if an object or class is mocked. If it is mocked the $mock object (Test2::Mock)
           will be returned.

       $mock = mock $class => ( ... );
       $mock = mock $instance => ( ... )
       $mock = mock 'class', $class => ( ... )
           These forms delegate to "mock_class()" to mock a package. The third form is to be
           explicit about what type of mocking you want.

       $obj = mock()
       $obj = mock { ... }
       $obj = mock 'obj', ...;
           These forms delegate to "mock_obj()" to create instances of anonymous packages where
           methods are vivified into existence as needed.

       mock $mock => sub { ... }
       mock $method => ( ... )
           These forms go together, the first form will set $mock as the current mock build, then
           run the sub. Within the sub you can declare mock specifications using the second form.
           The first form delegates to "mock_build()".

           The second form calls the specified method on the current build. This second form
           delegates to "mock_do()".

   BY REQUEST
       DEFINING MOCKS

       $obj = mock_obj( ... )
       $obj = mock_obj { ... } => ( ... )
       $obj = mock_obj sub { ... }
       $obj = mock_obj { ... } => sub { ... }
           This method lets you quickly generate a blessed object. The object will be an instance
           of a randomly generated package name. Methods will vivify as read/write accessors as
           needed.

           Arguments can be any method available to Test2::Mock followed by an argument. If the
           very first argument is a hashref then it will be blessed as your new object.

           If you provide a coderef instead of key/value pairs, the coderef will be run to build
           the mock. (See the "BUILDING MOCKS" section).

       $mock = mock_class $class => ( ... )
       $mock = mock_class $instance => ( ... )
       $mock = mock_class ... => sub { ... }
           This will create a new instance of Test2::Mock to control the package specified. If
           you give it a blessed reference it will use the class of the instance.

           Arguments can be any method available to Test2::Mock followed by an argument. If the
           very first argument is a hashref then it will be blessed as your new object.

           If you provide a coderef instead of key/value pairs, the coderef will be run to build
           the mock. (See the "BUILDING MOCKS" section).

       BUILDING MOCKS

       mock_build $mock => sub { ... }
           Set $mock as the current build, then run the specified code. $mock will no longer be
           the current build when the sub is complete.

       $mock = mock_building()
           Get the current building $mock object.

       mock_do $method => $args
           Run the specified method on the currently building object.

       METHOD GENERATORS

       $sub = mock_accessor $field
           Generate a read/write accessor for the specified field. This will generate a sub like
           the following:

               $sub = sub {
                   my $self = shift;
                   ($self->{$field}) = @_ if @_;
                   return $self->{$field};
               };

       $sub = mock_getter $field
           Generate a read only accessor for the specified field. This will generate a sub like
           the following:

               $sub = sub {
                   my $self = shift;
                   return $self->{$field};
               };

       $sub = mock_setter $field
           Generate a write accessor for the specified field. This will generate a sub like the
           following:

               $sub = sub {
                   my $self = shift;
                   ($self->{$field}) = @_;
               };

       %pairs = mock_accessors(qw/name1 name2 name3/)
           Generates several read/write accessors at once, returns key/value pairs where the key
           is the field name, and the value is the coderef.

       %pairs = mock_getters(qw/name1 name2 name3/)
           Generates several read only accessors at once, returns key/value pairs where the key
           is the field name, and the value is the coderef.

       %pairs = mock_setters(qw/name1 name2 name3/)
           Generates several write accessors at once, returns key/value pairs where the key is
           the field name, and the value is the coderef.

MOCK CONTROL OBJECTS

           my $mock = mock(...);

       Mock objects are instances of Test2::Mock. See it for their methods.
