Hi List,

I have a rather basic question regarding junit/eclipse.

When I run the following class as a junit test in eclipse, it works ok


But when I have a setup method, like:

I get exception:



You have any ideas?

Thanks,

You have to use setUp() not setup() as the method name. With your current name, the test runner code isn't calling the test fixture initialization code and therefore you get the null pointer exception.
