If you would like to test a method(x),which calls another method(y),you would actually be testing both x and y,which is not a "Unit test".One approach to isolate a unit from the rest of the system would be to use mock objects.

Mock objects help you test your code without dependencies. For example, you can test a servlet without a server of a database call without a database.

If you are trying to test a method which takes complex objects as parameters, then you have to make up some appropriate objects; hence the term "mock objects" for these.
