[mocha-developer] mocking methods called multiple times

Examples are always nice, but in the mean time...

Model.expects(:save).at_least_once will let you call it one or more  
times
Model.stubs(:save) will let you call it zero or more times

But, if you want to test models without hitting the database you can  
use UnitRecord. If you want to take it another level and test models  
without loading the Rails framework you can use arbs: http://arbs.rubyforge.org

Cheers, Jay
