One of the recurring questions in TDD workshops is “How do I test private methods?“. My usual answer is worded along the following lines: “You don’t. Any private method should be tested through the public interface. If you think the private method is complex enough for deserving its own test(s), extract it to a public place and test it there.“ I still think this is the best general answer I can give, however, I recently discovered a set of situations that I handle differently.
