in reply to Testing objects that cache

I have solved similar problems by exposing some useful but very limited bits of the cache internals through an API. For example, a method to keep a count of the number of cache hits and misses. With that, you can tell whether your test hit or missed the cache by comparing the counters before and after. I often find these sorts of methods useful for logging after the fact.
