in reply to How to test a Moose Role?
Which works best for you?
I've had success writing a minimal test class which consumes the role and testing that, but other times I've had more success testing the actual classes which consume the role. My working guide seems to be that if I consume the role in one or two places, testing the actual classes works better. If I consume the role in many places, a test consumer works better.
I suspect the answer has something to do with how specific or generic the role is.
