Mockito’s mock Methods

By | October 15, 2020

In this post, We will talk and learn about different overloaded mock() methods of org.mockito.Mockito class

Mockito’s class org.mockito.Mockito provides below overloaded mock Methods:

public static <T> T mock(Class<T> classToMock): It creates mock object of given class or interface.

public static <T> T mock(Class<T> classToMock, String name) : In this method we can specify mock name. mock name can be helpful for debugging in all verification errors.

public static <T> T mock(Class<T> classToMock, Answer defaultAnswer) : This method creates mock with a specified strategy for its answers to interactions. It’s quite an advanced feature and typically we don’t need it to write general tests. However, it can be helpful when we work with legacy systems.

public static <T> T mock(Class<T> classToMock, MockSettings mockSettings) :  This method creates a mock with some non-standard settings.The number of configuration points for a mock grows so we need a fluent way to use new configuration without adding lot of overloaded Mockito.mock() methods.

Let’s try to understand the above concept using a demo project:
