public abstract class TestCase
extends Assert
implements Test

A test case defines the fixture to run multiple tests. To define a test case
1) implement a subclass of TestCase
2) define instance variables that store the state of the fixture
3) initialize the fixture state by overriding setUp
4) clean-up after a test by overriding tearDown.
Each test runs in its own fixture so there can be no side effects among test runs. Here is an example:

 public class MathTest extends TestCase {
     protected double fValue1;
     protected double fValue2;

    protected void setUp() {
         fValue1= 2.0;
         fValue2= 3.0;
     }
 }
 
For each test implement a method which interacts with the fixture. Verify the expected results with assertions specified by calling assertTrue with a boolean.
    public void testAdd() {
        double result= fValue1 + fValue2;
        assertTrue(result == 5.0);
    }
 
Once the methods are defined you can run them. The framework supports both a static type safe and more dynamic way to run a test. In the static way you override the runTest method and define the method to be invoked. A convenient way to do so is with an anonymous inner class.
 TestCase test= new MathTest("add") {
        public void runTest() {
            testAdd();
        }
 };
 test.run();
 
The dynamic way uses reflection to implement runTest. It dynamically finds and invokes a method. In this case the name of the test case has to correspond to the test method to be run.
 TestCase= new MathTest("testAdd");
 test.run();
 
The tests to be run can be collected into a TestSuite. JUnit provides different test runners which can run a test suite and collect the results. A test runner either expects a static method suite as the entry point to get a test to run or it will extract the suite automatically.
 public static Test suite() {
      suite.addTest(new MathTest("testAdd"));
      suite.addTest(new MathTest("testDivideByZero"));
      return suite;
  }

Constructor Detail

TestCase

public TestCase()
No-arg constructor to enable serialization. This method is not intended to be used by mere mortals without calling setName().


TestCase

public TestCase(String name)
Constructs a test case with the given name.

Method Detail

countTestCases

public int countTestCases()
Counts the number of test cases executed by run(TestResult result).

Specified by:
countTestCases in interface Test

createResult

protected TestResult createResult()
Creates a default TestResult object

See Also:
TestResult

run

public TestResult run()
A convenience method to run this test, collecting the results with a default TestResult object.

See Also:
TestResult

run

public void run(TestResult result)
Runs the test case and collects the results in TestResult.

Specified by:
run in interface Test

runBare

public void runBare()
             throws Throwable
Runs the bare test sequence.

Throws:
Throwable - if any exception is thrown

runTest

protected void runTest()
                throws Throwable
Override to run the test and assert its state.

Throws:
Throwable - if any exception is thrown

setUp

protected void setUp()
              throws Exception
Sets up the fixture, for example, open a network connection. This method is called before a test is executed.

Throws:
Exception

tearDown

protected void tearDown()
                 throws Exception
Tears down the fixture, for example, close a network connection. This method is called after a test is executed.

Throws:
Exception

toString

public String toString()
Returns a string representation of the test case

Overrides:
toString in class Object
Returns:
String a printable representation for the receiver.

getName

public String getName()
Gets the name of a TestCase

Returns:
returns a String

setName

public void setName(String name)
Sets the name of a TestCase

Parameters:
name - The name to set
