    Arrow Better solution in JMock or other Java framework to have same number of parameters as protected method has

    Here is a question.

    I wanted my JUnit tests to be more modular and found how to mock protected methods for that purpose. Briefly speaking, we cannot mock and control calls of protected method with JDK dynamic proxy because protected methods are not in any interface but we can create MockInterface with mock method under control and call it from overridden protected method to achieve our goal.

    The problem Iím trying to resolve now is that my mock method should have the same number of parameters as protected method I want to mock. It forces me to create several mock methods with different number of parameters which is not elegant. Does anyone know better solution in JMock or other Java framework? Any help would be very appreciated.

    Thanks JavaPF.

    Just found another solution with CGLIB if interesting. Refactoring sometimes allows to resolve the problem as well.

    Cheers!
