AtUnit minimizes boilerplate code in unit tests and guides test development by enforcing good practices.
* mark exactly one field with @Unit to indicate the object under test.
* mark fields with @Mock or @Stub to obtain mock objects
* inject your tests, and your test subjects, using your favorite IoC container
Mock Objects Integration
AtUnit integrates with JMock or EasyMock to provide mock objects:
* obtain a JMock context simply by declaring a field
* annotate fields with @Mock to obtain JMock or EasyMock mock objects
* annotate fields with @Stub to obtain a JMock or EasyMock stub object
... or you can use your own mock objects plug-in with two easy steps:
* implement the MockFramework interface
* annotate your tests with @MockFrameworkClass(MyMockFramework.class)
AtUnit integrates with Guice or Spring to take all of the work out of dependency-injected tests.
* never see the Injector, never write bootstrapping boilerplate!
* @Inject test class fields without even defining a Module
* declaratively obtain mock objects with @Inject @Mock
* if you need more binding flexibility, simply have your test class implement Module
* annotate fields with @Bean to get them from the Spring context
* fields annotated with @Bean which do not appear in your Spring context are added to it automatically! (This includes @Mock and @Stub fields.)
* AtUnit looks for a Spring XML file with the same name as your test, or you can specify the location yourself with @Context("filename")
* Most of the time, you don't even need a Spring XML file!
You can easily plug in other containers in two steps:
* implement the Container interface
* annotate your tests with @ContainerClass(MyContainer.class)
