comment (Why) is it important that a unit test not test dependencies?
danip: clear definitions are important, and I would insist on them. But it's also important to realize that those definitions are a target. They're worth aiming for, but you don't always need a bullseye. Unit tests will often have dependencies on lower-level libraries.

comment Where does this concept of “favor composition over inheritance” come from?
@Mason: The guideline is to "favor composition over inheritance." In no way does this mean don't use or even avoid inheritance. All it says that when all other things are equal, choose composition. But if you need inheritance, use it!
