Thanks. I think that the might achieve what I was after. Since there was some confusion about what I really want to do, and why, I'll try to give you an example, but I'm going to have to show it in pseudo-java.

public class Foo { public void doSomething(Bar bar) { ... } }
now, I want to write code that tests Foo.doSomething. I want that test to be independent of any problems that Bar might have. So, I write this...
public class FooTest { testDoSomething() { class MockBar extends Bar { // code to simulate a "Bar" } ... bar = new MockBar(); foo = new Foo(); foo.doSomething(bar); // check that the right things happened to bar } }

    Before going further, you might want to give Test::Unit a shot and see if it will work for you.
      Test::Unit is simply a framework. It doesn't change HOW you write the actual code that does the testing. But thanks for the pointer.
