Is there a way to test a function that returns a promise #4

Hello! I'm a little new to the whole Node-unit-testing thing. I have some functions that return Bluebird promises, and am not entirely sure how to assert what they'll return. What would be the proper way of doing that?

That's a good question!

My first thought is to assert that the returned objects are "promise" objects, whatever that means in the type system (a function?). Would that be sufficient for your needs?

I need to check which arguments are going to be sent into the function in the .then callback of my promise, so I think asserting that they're promises would only solve half the issue.
