That works around this issue for the specific example but is not always possible...

revised Advantages and disadvantages to making common unit test scaffolding code
Removed the part about not wanting to use the database, it's too specific for my situation and it's turning out to be something worth considering judging by the answers.

Sam, see my comment on Tony Hopkinson's reply. Would you do the same if we're dealing with a project that is all just POCO classes?

comment Advantages and disadvantages to making common unit test scaffolding code
Let's assume that there is no dependency on the database whatsoever and the objects are POCO's, would you still consider a database to retrieve them from? Would having to maintain a database that is only used for testing differ from having to maintain code to create objects that is just used for testing?

comment Advantages and disadvantages to making common unit test scaffolding code
It's a valid approach - but not for the code base we have. I'm currently working with Builder-classes that create XML-based messages from our domain objects. No amount of facade classes will prevent me from having to plug in fully constructed objects at some point - something I've had to do several times over in different solutions.
