[rspec-users] Mocking MiddleMan

This is what worked for me back then:

In our spec_helper I did:

class Object;  remove_const :MiddleMan; end
MiddleMan = Object.new

And then the spec looked like:

   it "should call the admin email worker" do
=> :admin_email_worker, :args => @email_params)

and often MiddleMan.stub!(:new_worker)
