Mockito - Verify Method Calls With Argument Matchers

[Last Updated: Jul 23, 2020]

Just like stubbing, Argument matchers can be used for verification also.

Example

Example Application

package com.logicbig.example;

public interface MyService {
  public int doSomething(String processName);
}
package com.logicbig.example;

public class MyProcessor {
  private String processName;
  private MyService myService;

  public MyProcessor(String processName, MyService myService) {
      this.processName = processName;
      this.myService = myService;
  }

  public void process() {
      int returnInteger = processName != null ? myService.doSomething(processName) : -1;
      System.out.println("My Integer is: " + returnInteger);
  }
}

Using argument matcher with verify()

Following example uses Mockito.anyString() argument matcher with verify() method:

package com.logicbig.example;

import org.junit.Test;
import org.mockito.Mockito;

public class ProcessorTest {

  @Test
  public void processTest() {
      MyService myService = Mockito.mock(MyService.class);
      String processName = "dummy-process-name";
      Mockito.when(myService.doSomething(processName))
             .thenReturn(10);
      MyProcessor myProcessor = new MyProcessor(processName, myService);
      myProcessor.process();
      Mockito.verify(myService).doSomething(Mockito.anyString());
  }
}
