Basic usage

import mox
import unittest


class PersonTest(mox.MoxTestBase):

    def testUsingMox(self):
        # Create a mock Person
        mock_person = self.mox.CreateMock(Person)

        test_person = ...
        test_primary_key = ...
        unknown_person = ...

        # Expect InsertPerson to be called with test_person; return
        # test_primary_key at that point
        mock_person.InsertPerson(test_person).AndReturn(test_primary_key)

        # Raise an exception when this is called
        mock_person.DeletePerson(unknown_person).AndRaise(UnknownPersonError())

        # Switch from record mode to replay mode
        self.mox.ReplayAll()

        # Run the test
        ret_pk = mock_person.InsertPerson(test_person)
        self.assertEquals(test_primary_key, ret_pk)
        self.assertRaises(UnknownPersonError, mock_person, unknown_person)
