  1. 1. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Unit testing in a real-life environment using Mockito Stubbing and Mocking
  2. 2. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Stubbing and Mocking • Mediator Objects and Testing • Stubs • Mocking Objects • Mockito • PowerMockito
  3. 3. 3 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • The JUnit testing framework, makes the testing of an independent, non-void method, simple. • But... how do we test an method with no return value? • How do we test a method that interacts with other domain objects? Testing Mediator Objects 3 Mediator Objects & Testing
  4. 4. 4 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Mediator Objects & Testing • Dependencies – In order for a function to run it often requires Files, DB, JNDI or generally – other units • Side effects – As a function runs we are often interested in data written to files, saved to db or generally – passed to other units How can we test a single unit, without being affected by other units – their errors, set-up complexities and performance issues? In Real-Life Units are NOT Totally Self Contained 4
  5. 5. 5 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Let’s say we want to test a method that gets an Account and a Financial Transaction, checks whether the Transaction is legitimate and only if it is, applies it to the Account. • How would you implement this test? Testing Mediator Objects 5 Mediator Objects & Testing
  6. 6. 6 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • What if the method receives an Account and prints specific parts of it using a Logger? Testing Mediator Objects 6 Mediator Objects & Testing
  7. 7. 7 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Many business objects that are really important to test are mediators, i.e., they contain methods which interact with other domain objects. • Since in unit testing we want to test a unit without its dependencies, we will have to eliminate them somehow. • We do this by passing dummy objects to “fill in” for the real dependencies. Testing Mediator Objects 7 Mediator Objects & Testing
  8. 8. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Stubbing and Mocking • Mediator Objects and Testing • Stubs • Mocking Objects • Mockito • PowerMockito
  9. 9. 9 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • A Stub is a test-only object which: • Implements the same interface as the production object • Gives the set of services used by the tested unit – often using a naïve, hard-coded implementation • More complex stubs may even contain test-supporting logic, e.g. assert that they are used correctly What is a Stub? 9 Stubs
  10. 10. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • BookInventory is a package for management of … book inventories. • It does inventory management, connection to book catalogs (like library of congress), etc. Exercise 1- BookInventory Stubs
  11. 11. 11 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Main Classes Exercise 1- BookInventory 11 Stubs 1111 BookInventory Main entry point BookCatalog Get title data Amazon Get title data LibraryOfCongress Get title data ChristianCatalog Get title data BookCopy Main entry point *
  12. 12. 12 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Write a unit test for BookInventory.registerCopy • A “good” copy can be registered • Several copies can be registered for both same and different titles • A copy can only be registered if the title details are known • Same copy cannot be registered twice • Same copy id for two different titles gives specific error message Exercise 1- BookInventory 12 Stubs
  13. 13. 13 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Pros: • We can write anything • Cons: • A lot of work • Error prone • Gets complicated as our demands increase: • Was the catalog actually called? • Was it called more than once? • Was the isbn passed correctly to the catalog? • What if two catalogs return different results? Stubbing Pros and Cons 13 Stubs
  14. 14. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Stubbing and Mocking • Mediator Objects and Testing • Stubs • Mocking Objects • Mockito • PowerMockito
  15. 15. 15 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • A Mock object is an object that: • Is created by the mock framework • Implements the same interface as the original dependent object. Otherwise, the compiler won’t let us pass it to the tested object. • Supplies the tested code with everything it expects from the dependent object. • Allows us to check that the tested code is using the dependent object (the Mock) correctly. Mock Objects 15 Mocks
  16. 16. 16 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • To use a Mock object we should: • Create instance of the Mock. • Define bahavior during test. • Invoke the tested code while passing the Mock as parameter. • Verify the Mock has been used correctly. • Let’s see an example... Introduction to Mock Objects 16 Mocks
  17. 17. 17 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD 17 Mocks Example: Testing book addition with Mock Title Catalog Construct Set behavior Verify behavior
  18. 18. 18 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Setup mocks for all dependencies required by our units – Either as part of setUp (@Before) or at the beginning of the test method • Set mocks to correctly handle interaction – Usually at the beginning of the test method • Call business logic under testing • Verify results & behavior (i.e. “side effects”) The Typical Usage Pattern 18 Mocks
  19. 19. 19 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • When we set expectations on unit behavior, we are also setting restrictions on how it is implemented • It is very easy to create tests that are implementation specific, and will break even though the unit is OK • Such tests are called “brittle” and they are nightmare to maintain The danger of testing behavior through mocks 19 Mocks
  20. 20. 20 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Testing the SQL passed to the DB • Verifying that the unit actually pulls data given by mocks • Testing for a specific order of calls to mocks • Etc. Some Examples of Brittle tests 20 Mocks Over-Specified behavior == Brittle tests
  21. 21. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Stubbing and Mocking • Mediator Objects and Testing • Stubs • Mocking Objects • Mockito • PowerMockito
  22. 22. 22 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Mockito 22 • An open-source project providing an easy way to work with Mock objects. • Can be freely downloaded from Google Code http://code.google.com/p/mockito. • Released under the MIT License. Mockito
  23. 23. 23 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • No need to write Mock objects by hand. • Simple “Set-Run-Verify” work model (as opposed to (expect/record-run-verify) • Refactoring-safe, no need to refactor Mock in case the interface has changed. • Supports return values and Exceptions. • Flexible parameter handling in both set & verify • Single jar, easy setup • Easy to learn Mockito - Benefits 23 Mockito
  24. 24. 24 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Import Mockito – preferably static: import static org.mockito.Mockito.*; •Option 1: “mock” instead of “new” IAccount mockAct= mock(IAccount.class);// or even… Account mockAct= mock(Account.class); //on a concrete class •Option 2: @mock a member @mock private Account mockAct; (But then you need to use MockitoAnnotations.initMocks or JUnitMockitoRunner) Constructing Mocks 24 Mockito
  25. 25. 25 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Examples: when(mockedList.get(0)).thenReturn("first"); when(mockedList.get(or(eq(1), eq(2)))). thenReturn(“more"); when(mockedList.get(gt(2)).thenThrow(new RuntimeException()); • Other Matchers: • anyInt, anyString,… • Custom matchers using hamcrest Setting up Mock Behavior 25 Mockito
  26. 26. 26 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Verify a function was called: verify(mockedList).clear(); •Verify parameters passed: verify(mockedList).add("one"); verify(mockedList).add(anyString()); •Verify number of invocations: verify(mockedList,atLeastOnce()).add("one"); verify(mockedList,times(3)).add(anyString()); similarly: never, atLeast, atMost •CAUTION: This is the heart of brittle testing! Verifying Behavior 26 Mockito
  27. 27. 27 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Using Mockito: • Rewrite the tests from Exercise 1 • Also test that: • BookInventory.registerCopy: • Works well with several TitleCatalog objects • Stops searching for book details once it has them • Extend BookInventory to support TitleCatalogs of banned books. Test it. (A copy of a banned book cannot be registered) Exercise 2 27 Mockito
  28. 28. 28 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Spy allows us to wrap a real object, and perform partial mocking • This is dangerous, but may be relevant with some legacy code. Partial Mocking: Spy Objects 28 Mockito
  29. 29. 29 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • Mockito allows you to verify the order in which methods on mocks were called. • This is yet another example of how you can create extremely brittle tests. Use with caution. Verifying call order 29 Mockito
  30. 30. 30 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD • You can make sure a mock was not used through verifyZeroInteractions •You can make sure a mock was not used following a specific verify through verifyNoMoreInteractions •Both are often over specification… Expecting Nothing is Expecting Something 30 Mockito
  31. 31. copyright 2008 trainologic LTD Stubbing and Mocking • Mediator Objects and Testing • Stubs • Mocking Objects • Mockito • PowerMockito
  32. 32. copyright 2009 Trainologic LTD • PowerMock is a framework that extends Mockito/EasyMock. For Mockito it is called PowerMockito. • PowerMock uses a custom classloader and bytecode manipulation to enable mocking of static methods, constructors, final classes and methods, private methods, and more. • This is a mixed blessing: • We can avoid re-factoring legacy code in order to test it • We are less inclined to fix bad design PowerMock EasyMock
  33. 33. copyright 2009 Trainologic LTD • Lets see an example: • We have the following class: PowerMockito Example EasyMock
  34. 34. copyright 2009 Trainologic LTD PowerMock Example EasyMock
  35. 35. 35 copyright 2008 trainologic LTD EasyMock • In order to unit-test isolated units we must use Mock objects. • Writing Mocks by hand is cumbersome. • Mockito is a simple and easy to use library that helps us create Mock implementations on the fly. How do you know if a person really does unit testing? Ask him what mocking framework he is using! Summary 35
