I am currently working on a kind of “presentation object” that I called `IdealPayments::GlobalStats`

.

This object will be used in two places, to display a graph and to show the data in a page where we can see all the “ideal payments”.

In my imagination and implementation, this object will depenend on an active record relation and chain the right methods to present the result.

Although I think this is not a big deal, I would like to know what do you think is best way to write unit/micro tests for this object and why?

I have two options…

- Test through the database as if the source (the active record relation) was invisible.
- Test by allowing that “the right messages” will be send to the “source” and expect the right result is returned.

Note: I already have test all the methods on the active record class through the database.
