Mocking Public Properties

Mockery allows us to mock properties in several ways. One way is that we can set a public property and its value on any mock object. The second is that we can use the expectation methods set() and andSet() to set property values if that expectation is ever met.

In general, Mockery does not support mocking any magic methods since these are generally not considered a public API (and besides it is a bit difficult to differentiate them when you badly need them for mocking!). So please mock virtual properties (those relying on __get() and __set()) as if they were actually declared on the class.
