And unexpected outcomes spell trouble. Plus, the weirdness of the internal and external names of docRoot versus realRoot is confusing. A better solution is to use private properties with public getters and setters. getDocRoot = function() { return docRoot; }; }; }()); Now access to the docRoot property is only possible through our API, which forces validation on writes. getDocRoot()); The setter is now wrapped in a try/catch block, which is more expected than wrapping an assignment in a try/catch block, so it looks sane.

Beyond Application Code | 11 Recap Testable JavaScript does not automatically flow from Agile, waterfall, TDD, BDD, or whatever other software development philosophy you might follow. Testable JavaScript is a commitment to small, loosely coupled, bite-sized chunks of simple code. How you arrive at that code is up to you. This book will hopefully provide insight into achieving this state of coded bliss. Writing testable code will make your life, and the lives of all who follow you, much easier. From fewer bugs to more easily fixed ones, from easier testing to simpler debugging, testable JavaScript is your gateway to sanity.

3 The point is that there is no specific number that is a danger indicator, but when fan-out is greater than 7 (or even 4) it is time to look at what is going on and possibly refactor. Excessive fan-out belies other issues, namely tight coupling, which we will also investigate in this chapter. High fan-out can be problematic for even more reasons: the code is more complex, making it harder to understand and therefore test; each direct dependent must be mocked or stubbed out during testing, creating testing complexity; and fan-out is in‐ dicative of tight coupling, which makes functions and modules overly brittle.
