In the action test case below I was able to test the loop which did not have the service call using a very useful struts extension (attached) that I had downloaded from another website.

However, I am not sure on how to test the second scenario commented out in the test method. Should I mock the service call or else is there some other pattern that I need to apply

I have created a new Mock Service to extend that service and set it in the session assuming that the Dependency Injection would be overridden as mentioned in the mockrunner examples



And I have changed LoggableActionTest second scenario to as follows


But it still goes to the actual LoggableServiceImpl instead of the MockLoggableServiceImpl. What did I mess up or not understand ?

Adding

LogabbleService ls = (LogabbleServiceImpl)session.get(LoggableServiceImpl.class.getName());

to the LoggableAction solved the problem, but then I cant do that since it would mess the actual functionality.

Any idea on how I can override the setting of LoggableService with my MockLoggableServiceImpl.

Got me worried. So is there no way to pass a mock service into my action class.
