I am new to Junit and trying to execute following test. What I have understood is that if a method of a Junit test case is annotated with @After,
that method should run after every test method. I created below test class with Junit and it only print "inside @Test" when running. But according to my knowledge that should print both "inside @Test" and "inside @After". So whats wrong with this? help me.

Since you are extending TestCase, JUnit is treating it as a JUnit 3.8 test. Which looks for setUp/tearDown/test* named methods.

If you remove the "extends TestCase", JUnit will see it as a JUnit 4 test and do what you expect.
