Mock Casting of jcr Session to Jackrabbit Session - (JackrabbitSession) session

Avatar

Level 2

Hi All,

I am trying to write a junit test case and i am unable to mock the casting of jcr session to Jackrabbit session.

Here is my Code :

resolver = request.getResourceResolver();

session = resolver.adaptTo(Session.class);

jcrSession = (JackrabbitSession) session;

Below is my Junit :

     @Mock

    Session session;

     @Mock

    ResourceResolver resolver;

    @Mock

    JackrabbitSession jcrSession;

PowerMockito.when(request.getResourceResolver()).thenReturn(resolver);

PowerMockito.when(resolver.adaptTo(Session.class)).thenReturn(session);

PowerMockito.when((JackrabbitSession) session).thenReturn(jcrSession); // i am getting error at this point

when i am trying to do this, i am getting "java.lang.ClassCastException"

Below is the error:

java.lang.ClassCastException: $javax.jcr.Session$$EnhancerByMockitoWithCGLIB$$b9cd1700 cannot be cast to org.apache.jackrabbit.api.JackrabbitSession

I have mocked my session and resolver objects but still i am getting the error.

Please help me in Mocking this for my junit test.

Thanks & Regards,

Indrajith

Hi,

may I ask why do you need to have that cast at all? There should not be any need to do it.

I would refactor the code in a way, that the cast to the JackrabbitSession plus all dependent functionality is separated in a dedicated method, and then stub this method with Mockito completely.

(Also I would recommend to use SlingContext, so you don't need to mock resources and nodes. See [1] for a sample.)

Hi @indrajithp11346 ,

 

You can try like below

 

when --> resolver.adaptTo(Session.class)).thenReturn(jackrabbitSession object) . @Mock JackrabbitSession jackrabbitSession ; and return jackrabbitSession object in thenReturn method.

 

If you try above you won't get cast exception
