I submitted this question on the powermock google message board as well but figured I do this here too. So I have a 3rd party library I have no source for but no it is a final class with an inner static class with a public method. I have a class I am trying to write a test for that uses it. I am posting this code example to see if anyone has any ideas. It is a big abreviation from the actaul code but I believe I get all the important parts. Sadly I did not save my previous question so I have retype this whole thing.
Here is a skeleton of the 3rd party library:
Here is the class that uses it:
and here's the test
So I am trying to figure out how to mock new of a static inner class of a final class so I can mock its method call.
Pat, I'd like to solve the puzzle please....
So I figured this out on my own. I think the static inner class muddled my thought on this. Even if a class is static, whenNew can still be used. However if you're using a mock of a final class then PowerMock.createMock needs to be used. So here is how I did this:
add the final class to the list of prepareForTest at the class level:
then in the testmethod:
anyObject being a hamcrest matcher. createMock, replay, and explect all are static imports from the PowerMock class. Sorry for not posting the import statements.
