Subject: Setup/Startup Methods Can't Be Overridden
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 543b
Startup/setup methods in base classes that are overridden by subclasses are still called. For example: package PigTest; use base 'Test::Class'; sub startup : Test(startup) { $self->{fixture} = PigService->create($argz) } sub eats : Test { } package PorkyPigTest; use base 'PigTest'; sub startup : Test(startup) { $self->{fixture} = PorkyPigService->create($argz) } sub talks : Test { } PigService will be called when running the PorkyPigTest. Of course this is simple to fix, but it's surprising and unintuitive. -Skye
