jMock 2 (RC1)

The ever-so-infrequent releases of jMock lead to great excitement when they do release a new version. jMock 2 RC1 has been coming for some time, so it's great to see it happen. With new syntax and better support for automated refactoring, I'm expecting this to be an enjoyable upgrade.

If you haven't tried jMock, I'd urge you to give it a look. Although its authors sometimes take their design approach to the point of near-zealotry (which I do find occasionally frustrating), it's still the best 'Mock Objects' tool I've used, precisely because it allows you to indicate what you want to test and what you don't care about in a way that no other mock framework that I've used really addresses.
