I am keeping good on my word

Like the title says, I am keeping good on my word to get some stuff done. I have been working on my mocking framework to post it to github. There have been a number of changes. Probably the biggest noticeable change is the switch to a mockito-like when+doReturn style. Along with this, I no longer use a static mock manager which means that there are less chances of method name conflict. The down side to this is that the mock now needs to be injected via constructor or property as the mocked calls are specific to the instance created in the test. The mocks have also been softened and now allow for out of order method invocation. There are still matchers but they have changed a bit. It is very much a work around for the lack of reflection and I expect them to change in the second release. In fact, there is a laundry list of features I want to add, but I need to get something out there first before I start planning where I will put the kitchen sink. Now, some may be wondering why I have not put anything in github and the reason is, is that this was a major overhaul from top to bottom. I didn’t want some broken piece of code attached to my name. Right now it is 90ish percent done. The code is working, but I want more tests and some clean up. You see, I do most of this at night… or the morning as it just so happens (12:11am as of this sentence) and while I produce working code, I also produce code with a high WTF/m at this time. So once I have it cleaned up, tested and commented, I will push it to github and make a big ol’ post about it here.
