Suppose you need to repeatedly execute some test method in your unit test case, for example, you would like to test getPrice based on the first set of test data 5 times in test method test1() while for the second set of test data, only one time should be executed.
The below class RepeatDemoOne is a bad example, where this special LOOP operation is mixed with test method implementation.
Ideally the test method should only contain the pure logic to operate on the method being tested. So we have a better solution RepeatDemoTwo: It could easily be observed that now the test method test1 and test2 are rather clean: no more for LOOP and System.out.println exist any more.
Instead, I put the LOOP logic and print out operation into class RepeatableRule which implements interface MethodRule. The concrete rule implementation is done by overriding method apply as below:
When I execute this test case, I can get exactly the same result as RepeatDemoOne:
With the help of @Rule, we can achieve the same as @Test(expected=).
For example, we can use an instance of class ExpectedException to manually declare within a test method itself that a test method expects a given type of exception class.
Besides exception, we can also manually specify a sub string which is expected to appear in an error message, and add our custom error message in Junit report if a test method fails. See following code for example:
In this example, if we comment out line 46, the customed message defined in method describeTo will be printed out in JUnit console:
