  1. Should the user repository take UserModel as an argument in the constructor? I’m wondering how the test suite for UserRepository knows anything about the stubbed model if the stubbed model is not passed in to the constructor.

  2. The Model exists in the global scope of the user repository, this allows the repository class have access to it. So in the test if the UserModel is referenced the stub will passed instead of the actual model.

  3. Hi thanks for sharing!. I have a question if i wanna return response with 500 status code if repository can not save user to database i.e database connection is broken or like that.

  4. I getting this error, please help me to solve this!!!

    else throw err
