简介: 使用ABAP实现Mock测试工具Mockito

What is Mockito?

Mockito is a mocking framework, JAVA-based library that is used for effective unit testing of JAVA applications. In our unit test there are usually some dependency on other external service implementation for example network or database service. Usually in order to isolate our test code from these dependencies we have to create mock class against them.

Mockito in Java can create transient mock class ( which is only available in current test session ) for us in a very easy way. See one example below:

This is a very simple class for book manager. Three books are hard coded. If requested book index is bigger than 3, then message 1 “not exist” returns.

In this blog, I will first introduce how Mockito is used in Java to mock this manager class, then show you how the logic of Mockito could be implemented in ABAP.


Use Mockito in Java

The magic is located in line 18 ~ 23.

First in line 18 a proxy class is generated based on BookManager which is to be mocked, then line 20~23 we told the Mockito “when the method getBook with specified argument ( 0, 1, 2, 3 ) are called, please return given mocked data “mocked book {index}” accordingly.


And no doubt we can get the following output in console:


How does it work in Java

Now let me unveil the mistery for you. In order to make the logic better understood, I split the one line


into the following equivalence:


The mock process actually consists of four steps:

Step1: create a proxy class by inheriting BookManager.class dynamically.

The generated class is a sub class of BookManager created via CGLIB, which I have already demonstrate how to implement it in ABAP in this blog:

Implement CGLIB in ABAP


Step2: mockedManager.getBook(0):

Since we call getBook on the mocked class, the original implementation of this method can never be called again. When you click F5 to debug into this method,

you can find the method call of getBook is intercepted into Mockito framework code:


Inside handler.handle(invocation) in line 47, first an instance of OngoingStubbingImpl is created for later usage.

In line 93, Mockito will check whether there is available mocked data ( In Mockito the terminology for “mocked data” is “answer” ) for current metod call in method findAnswerFor. If available, go to IF branch in line 97 to return mocked data, or else return default answer, in my example I don’t prepare any mocked data for getBook, so it simply returns null.


The logic of this step could be described in the following activity diagram:


Step3: Object stubbing = when(“dummy, any string here is ok”);

OngoingStubbingImpl stub = (OngoingStubbingImpl)stubbing;

The static method call simply returns the OngoingStubbingImpl instance created in step2. We need call corresponding method of this instance to feed mocked data.

Step4: stub.thenReturn(“Mocked book!!!”);

This line feeds the mocked data “Mocked book!!!” for method getBook.

The answer is inserted to a ConcurrentLinkedQueue.


Now the mocked data is ready for consuming in line



Since all the previous four steps for mock are done, we expect this time, the findAnswerfor will really return something.


Inside this method, each element in the queue is looped to evaluate whether it matches the mocked method call:


The evaluation is done based on three conditions: mocked class instance must be equal, method name and argument must be equal.


finally mocked data is returned for getBook in this IF branch.


How to simulate Mockito in ABAP


And this is the report to test:


Execution result:


Still I will explain how the mock is done in ABAP via the same four steps as in Java Mockito.

Step1: Create a transient sub class dynamically via ABAP call:


The implementation has already been explained in this blog: Implement CGLIB in ABAP


lo_mock->get_book( 1 )

When the get_book is executed, of course the original implementation will never be called again. Instead, the mocked class will delegate this call to Mockito framework method zcl_abap_mockito=>get_mocked_data


In zcl_abap_mockito=>get_mocked_data, just the same as Java, there is a IF branch:


Step3: call method when to return the instance which is the counterpart for “OngoingStubbingImpl” in Java.

Step4: call method then_return( ‘Data 1’ ) to feed mocked data for get_book method.

阿里云服务器初级使用者可能面临的问题之一. 使用tomcat或者其他服务器软件设置端口号后,比如 一些不是默认的, mysql的 3306, mssql的1433,有时候打不开网页, 原因是没有在ecs安全组去设置这个端口号. 解决: 点击ecs下网络和安全下的安全组 在弹出的安全组中,如果没有就新建安全组,然后点击配置规则 最后如上图点击添加...或快速创建.   have fun!  将编程看作是一门艺术,而不单单是个技术。
