comment Test Doubles, Mocks and Stubs - when not to use & why, for Ruby, Rspec
@soru, you shouldn't worry about being wrong, that's not the point here. Btw, there are actually 3 links to get a broader picture. The question you have raised is also quite marginal in my answer. The central point is that there is a separation between what is covered by your test and what is not. These must be conscious choices and determine where to use stubs and where not.

@soru, blunders, please consider that your idea of integration testing might not be the only one, or even the most commonly used, for instance: techopedia.com/definition/7751/integration-testing msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa292128%28v=vs.71%29.aspx en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_testing#Integration_testing . That said, it would have been possible to include the <your service> box in the green area, depending on what the service is or does (I was thinking e.g. of a REST-API of some kind and left it out)
