Martin Fowler posted a short entry on his bliki titled, TestDouble where he mentioned Gerard Meszaros’ book which is a collection of patterns for Xunit frameworks. Martin then describes how Gerard has encountered a lot of confusion over similar names for testing objects (stubs, mocks, fakes, dummies,...) in different frameworks and has provided a nice description of each to help you differentiate between them.
