A simple and practical guide to testing and mocking with JMockit. The full implementation of this tutorial can be found on the GitHub project. A blog on JMockit, an open source software licensed under the MIT License. It includes APIs for mocking, faking, and integration testing, and a. We’ll see step by step in very short tutorials that’ll help you start using jmockit. I’ll be trying to keep each one as crisp as possible. If you want.

Another option is to use the native reflection api’s provided by java.

Constructors can also be handled through delegate methods. How to add JMockit to an eclipse project? Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. In the test above, calls to eligible methods in the mocked Socket class will return a cascaded mock object jmocit they occur during the test.

For a given method with non- void return type, a return value can be recorded with an assignment to the result field. You saved a lot of time. If only one is found, its current value is read and then stored in the injected field.

Lets see an example. All three mocking annotations provide this ability.

Besides the several predefined argument matching constraints available in the API, JMockit allows the user to provide custom constraints, through the with Delegate method.

Thanks for the suggestion and reading my blog: Very nice tutorial, with clear structure and easy to follow. When recording or verifying an expectation, calls to the withXyz The withCapture method can only be used in verification blocks.


Automated developer tests can be divided in two broad categories, whether they target individual program “units”, multiple such units working together, or an entire “slice” of the system under test the “SUT”. Thursday, June 7, JMockit Tutorial: When we have one or more invocation parameters involved, an exact argument value may be specified for each parameter.

If a Class object is given, all methods and constructors defined in that class can be mocked, as well as the methods and constructors of its super-classes; all instances of the specified class will be regarded as mocked instances.

Thank a lot http: For example, you may want to test a business operation which happens to, at some point, send an e-mail.

This second case tends to occur more often when classes from the standard Java libraries, or from other third-party libraries, are mocked. The follwing two examples will give you how a private method is redefined first by using the Expectations api and then the MockUp api. The toolkit is provided tutorila a set of artifacts deployed to the Maven Central repository. There are more “with” methods than shown above.

An example test follows. If InputStream was mocked “normally”, the read byte[] method would always be mocked, regardless of the instance on which it is called.


When mocking is used, a test focuses on the behavior of the code under test, as expressed through its interactions uttorial other types it depends upon. First we have a class that has static method:.

JMockit: A beginner’s guide for Unit Testing

Hope this attempt would be helpful to you. Expectations In Injectable the values we are passing decides the result of that method.

Thank you so much Abhinandan. When a class or object is partially mocked, JMockit decides whether to execute the real implementation of a method or constructor as it gets called from the tugorial under test, based on which expectations were recorded and which were not. The order of MockUps when multiple methods are mocked is not important.

Mockedwhich will mock all methods and constructors on all existing and future instances of a mocked class for the duration of the tests using it ; Injectablewhich constrains mocking to the instance methods of a single mocked instance; and Capturingwhich extends mocking to the classes implementing a mocked interface, or the subclasses extending a jmlckit class.

Unknown October 24, at How to mock constructors with parameters or those that take arguments? It becomes a bowl of hot vegetable noodles you wont be able to handle later on. The first two steps require access to the application database, which is done through a simplified API to the persistence subsystem which itself uses JPA.
