mock instance is null after @Mock annotation

Tags: , , , ,



I try to run this test:

    @Mock IRoutingObjHttpClient routingClientMock;
    @Mock IRoutingResponseRepository routingResponseRepositoryMock;


    @Test
    public void testSendRoutingRequest() throws Exception {
        CompleteRoutingResponse completeRoutingResponse = new CompleteRoutingResponse();
        completeRoutingResponse.regression_latencyMillis = 500L;

        Mockito.when(routingClientMock.sendRoutingRequest(any(RoutingRequest.class))).thenReturn(completeRoutingResponse);

        RoutingObjHttpClientWithReRun routingObjHttpClientWithReRun = new RoutingObjHttpClientWithReRun
                (routingClientMock, routingResponseRepositoryMock);

...
    }

but I get NullPointerException for:

Mockito.when(routingClientMock.

what am i missing?

Answer

When you want to use the @Mock annotation you should use the MockitoJUnitRunner

@RunWith(MockitoJUnitRunner.class)
public class MockitoTest {

    @Mock
    private IRoutingObjHttpClient routingClientMock;

    @Test
    public void testSendRoutingRequest() throws Exception {
        // ...
    }

}
