Class SpincastTestBase

All Implemented Interfaces:
BeforeAfterClassMethodsProvider, CanBeDisabled, RepeatedClassAfterMethodProvider, TestFailureListener
Direct Known Subclasses:
AppBasedTestingBase, NoAppCustomContextTypesTestingBase

Base class for Spincast test classes.

Uses a custom Junit runner, SpincastJUnitRunner.

This runner create a single instance of the test class for all of its tests, instead of a new instance for each test. It also calls a beforeClass() method before the tests are run and an afterClass() method after they are run.

A class extending this will be part of a Guice context (created using the createInjector method) and the required dependencies will be injected into it.

A GuiceTweaker instance is used to be able to tweak a Guice context automagically. This for example allows you to start your actual application, using its main() method. Note that the Guice tweaker only works when the Guice context is created using the standard Spincast Bootstrapper .

Note that you can annotate a test class with:

if you need its tests to be ran in order (using the alphabetical order of the test methods' names).

    • isTestClassDisabledPreBeforeClass

      public boolean isTestClassDisabledPreBeforeClass(Collection<org.junit.runners.model.FrameworkMethod> filteredTests)
      Description copied from interface: CanBeDisabled
      Should the tests class be disabled?

      Note that this will be run before everything (including #beforeClass()): no Guice context is available... But you can look at System properties, for example as a way of finding if the file must be ran or not.

      Use CanBeDisabled.isTestClassDisabledPostBeforeClass() if you need the Guice context in order to perform your logic.

      Specified by:
      isTestClassDisabledPreBeforeClass in interface CanBeDisabled
      filteredTests - the tests that are going to be run.
    • isTestClassDisabledPostBeforeClass

      public boolean isTestClassDisabledPostBeforeClass()
      Description copied from interface: CanBeDisabled
      Should the tests of this class all be disabled?

      Note that this will be run after #beforeClass(): the Guice context is created and available.

      If you need to disable the tests because on some environments you are not even able to create the Guice context, use #isTestClassDisabledPreBeforeClass() instead.

    • validateCreatedInjector

      protected void validateCreatedInjector( guice)

      protected List<SpincastPlugin> getGuiceTweakerExtraPlugins()
      Extra plugins to be added by the Guice Tweaker.
    • getGuiceTweakerExtraOverridingModule

      protected getGuiceTweakerExtraOverridingModule()
      If an overriding Module is to be added using the Guice tweaker.

      Can be overriden with something like :

       return Modules.override(super.getGuiceTweakerExtraOverridingModule()).with(new SpincastGuiceModuleBase() {
           protected void configure() {
               // ...
    • getTestingConfigImplementationClass

      protected Class<? extends SpincastConfig> getTestingConfigImplementationClass()
      The implementation to use for the SpincastConfig binding, when running tests.
    • beforeTest

      public void beforeTest()
      This method will be called before each test.
    • afterTest

      public void afterTest()
      This method will be called after each test.
    • afterClass

      public void afterClass()
      Description copied from interface: BeforeAfterClassMethodsProvider
      Called after the tests of the class are ran.

      This will only be called if the beforeClass() method completed successfully, so you can be sure that the instanciation of the class is complete here.

      afterClass in interface BeforeAfterClassMethodsProvider
    • beforeClassException

      public void beforeClassException(Throwable ex)
      Description copied from interface: BeforeAfterClassMethodsProvider
      This method will be called if an exception occures during the BeforeAfterClassMethodsProvider.beforeClass() execution. Be careful!! Here, you are pretty much certain that the instanciation of the class was not succesful, so you can't use any of its methods!
      Specified by:
      beforeClassException in interface BeforeAfterClassMethodsProvider
    • afterClassLoops

      public void afterClassLoops()
      Description copied from interface: RepeatedClassAfterMethodProvider
      Called after all the loops of the class as specified by the RepeatUntilFailure or RepeatUntilSuccess annotations.

      This will only be called if the beforeClass() method completed successfully, so you can be sure that the instanciation of the class is complete here.
