Chapter 22. Constructing Complex Test Data
Many attempts to communicate are nullified by saying too much.
If we are strict about our use of constructors and immutable value objects, constructing objects in tests can be a chore. In production code, we construct such objects in relatively few places and all the required values are available to hand from, for example, user input, a database query, or a received message. In tests, however, we have to provide all the constructor arguments every time we want to create an object:
The code to create all these objects makes the tests hard to read, filling them with information ...
