In the book Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests, authors Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce suggest a neat pattern for cleanly creating test data for unit tests. They suggest using the builder pattern to build test objects which are as simple or as complicated as necessary for the test. The builder can set default data in fields meaning that only data significant to the result of the test needs to be set.
