FWIW, I consider interface tests to be a sucessful failure. They were worth trying but are not really worth the bother most of the time. IMO, you should only consider them in a case where you have an interface that you expect many implementations of and you want to reuse tests accross the implementations. Even then, there's a danger that the necessary infrastructure to allow reuse will make the tests unfathomable.

Hi everybody, while writing my first interface test I got to the point of writing the makeTestObject method which should raise a not implemented error (so implementations of this interace should override it) In the Zope 3 book the method is like this: def makeTestObject(self): raise NotImplemented() but after playing a bit with the Python interpreter it says that NotImplemented is not callable neither an exception. Looking in some real zope3 tests I saw another version of the method: def makeTestObject(self): raise NotImplementedError() So I guess is a little bug in the Zope3 book. Or, Am I missing something?
