    Default Junit3 error: Implicit super constructor TestCase() is not visible

    The following code has this error compiled in Eclipse:
    Implicit super constructor TestCase() is not visible. Must explicitly invoke another constructor

    package com.my.prog; 
     
    import junit.framework.*; 
    import javax.naming.*; 
    import javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject; 
     
     
    public abstract class TestProIndexBean extends TestCase { 
     
        static { 
           System.setProperty(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory"); 
           System.setProperty(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "iiop://localhost:7001" ); 
        } 
     
        private ProIndex proIndex = null; 
        private ProIndexHome home = null;   
     
        protected void setUp() throws Exception { 
     
            super.setUp(); 
            if( home == null ) { 
                Context context = new InitialContext(); 
                home = (ProIndexHome)PortableRemoteObject.narrow( 
                    context.lookup("com.my.prog.business.ProIndexHome"), 
                    ProIndexHome.class); 
            } 
            proIndex = home.create(); 
        } 
     
        protected void tearDown() throws Exception { 
            proIndex.remove(); 
            super.tearDown(); 
        } 
     
        public void testProIndexRequest1() throws Exception { 
     
            System.out.println("testProIndexRequest1()"); 
            ProIndexRequest request = new ProIndexRequest(); 
            ProIndexResponse actualReturn = proIndex.getProIndexInfo(request); 
            this.assertEquals("0000", actualReturn.getCd()); 
     
        } 
    }

    Seems like TestCase constructor has private access.

    Please verify.

    I think it means you have to have a default constructor for TestCase and you don't.
    public TestCase()
    {
     
    }

    No, it does not. And once again, if you have to preface a post with "I think", I suggest you be sure before posting...would have taken 30seconds to write something to test if you receive a compile time error....no-arg constructors are called implicitly.

    goldest is along the right lines....but I'm a bit confused because the API for JUnit states the no-arg constructor for TestCase is public...and I receive no error when I try and reproduce a TestCase with no constructor. That being said the no-arg constructor in the API states
    This method is not intended to be used by mere mortals without calling setName().
    I suggest you create a no-arg constructor and call the parent constructor that sets the name and see what that does.
