Stubs and drivers in integration testing?



  • What are stubs and drivers in integration testing and when and how are they used?I know it comes under top down and bottom up approach respectively but I would like to have a real technology scenario for understanding it more clearly.



  • from http://www.allthingsquality.com/p/testing-terms-glossary.html

    Driver A software component or test tool that replaces a component that takes care of the control and/or the calling of a component or system. [ISTQB]

    Stub A skeletal or special-purpose implementation of a software component, used to develop or test a component that calls or is otherwise dependent on it. It replaces a called component. [IEEE]
