How can I verify a method is run in a mocked class's callback?


I have a utility class in my Android code that handles the authentication of users. I'm writing unit tests for this class with Mokcito to verify that a listener is being notified if the creation of a new user had succeeded or failed. Here is one of this utility class's methods:

public void createNewUser(String email, String password) { firebaseAuth.createUserWithEmailAndPassword(email, password) .addOnSuccessListener(authResult -> { authListener.newUserCreated(); }) .addOnFailureListener(e -> { authListener.failedCreatingNewUser(); }); }

I am mocking FirebaseAuth and I want to verify that authListener.newUserCreated() has been called. I have tried using deep stubs and argument captors to handle the chained method calls on firebaseAuth.createUserWithEmailAndPassword but I can't figure out how to get this working.


Here is my test class with the test for this method:

public class AuthUtilsTest { private static final String USERNAME = "USERNAME"; private static final String PASSWORD = "PASSWORD"; @Mock private FirebaseAuth firebaseAuth; @Mock private FirebaseFirestore firebaseFirestore; @Mock private BaseEncoding base64; @Mock private PreferencesRepo preferencesRepo; @Mock private AuthUtilsContract.EventListener eventListener; private AuthUtils authUtils; @Before public void setupAuthUtils() { MockitoAnnotations.initMocks(this); authUtils = new AuthUtils( preferencesRepo, firebaseAuth, firebaseFirestore, base64 ); authUtils.takeEventListener(eventListener); } @Test public void failureCreatingNewUserTellsListener() { Task<AuthResult> failedTask = Tasks.forException(new Exception("fail")); when(firebaseAuth.createUserWithEmailAndPassword(anyString(), anyString())).thenReturn(failedTask); authUtils.createNewUser(USERNAME, PASSWORD); verify(eventListener).failedCreatingNewUser(); } }

which throws the exception


java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError at com.google.android.gms.tasks.zzn.addOnSuccessListener(Unknown Source) ... Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Method getMainLooper in android.os.Looper not mocked.



Use Mockito.when to make the createUserCall return a mocked Task. Then Mockito.verify on the task to capture the arguments to the add listener call.

Test the captured arguments to the extent you heart desires (this is like a unit test within a unit test, the captured arguments are your new Classes under test).

This method won't actually test that the listeners are called. Just that the add listener method was called and that the callbacks do what they should when called

verify(mockTask).addOnSuccessListener(listenerCaptor.capture()); OnSuccessListener<Auth> newObjectUnderTest = listenerCaptor.getValue(); //ACT newObjectUnderTest.onSuccess(auth); //ASSERT verify(authListener).newUserCreated();


Use Mockito.when to make the createUserCall return an already completed Task<AuthResult>.

Then Mockito.verify that the authListener did what it should assuming authListener is also a mock
