Good article, but the last paragraph mars it up.


I'm keen of the TDD, but what it is here for? How it is better than any other development methodology to struggle against the cyclomatic complexity?


It is profanation of the TDD!

    Hm. I would think that if you're writing your code test first, you'll be likely to have rather short methods, which will usually have a lower CCM...

    Nahhh....
