Mocking out social networks
I was wondering if anyone dealt with automating integration with different social networks. Considering that facebook, google+, etc.. can change things on their end at any time, and what you see may not be the same thing other's see (you could be part of the beta group, or a split testing group).
I was wondering if there are any frameworks (any language) for mocking out the APIs used for interacting with those frameworks. This way I can write an automated test without worrying about how the social network processes the request, and focus more on if the right requests were made.
I'd check out the mock feature in SoapUI.
Wow, a blast from the past. Now a days, I'd use a blackhole proxy to do this.
