Interface TestExecutionListener

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractTestExecutionListener, DependencyInjectionTestExecutionListener, DirtiesContextTestExecutionListener, TransactionalTestExecutionListener

public interface TestExecutionListener

TestExecutionListener defines a listener API for reacting to test execution events published by the TestContextManager with which the listener is registered.

Concrete implementations must provide a public no-args constructor, so that listeners can be instantiated transparently by tools and configuration mechanisms.

Spring provides the following out-of-the-box implementations:

Method Detail

beforeTestClass

void beforeTestClass(TestContext testContext)
                     throws java.lang.Exception
Pre-processes a test class before execution of all tests within the class.

This method should be called immediately before framework-specific before class lifecycle callbacks.

If a given testing framework (e.g., JUnit 3.8) does not support before class lifecycle callbacks, this method will not be called for that framework.

Parameters:
testContext - the test context for the test; never null
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - allows any exception to propagate

prepareTestInstance

void prepareTestInstance(TestContext testContext)
                         throws java.lang.Exception
Prepares the test instance of the supplied test context, for example by injecting dependencies.

This method should be called immediately after instantiation of the test instance but prior to any framework-specific lifecycle callbacks.

Parameters:
testContext - the test context for the test; never null
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - allows any exception to propagate

beforeTestMethod

void beforeTestMethod(TestContext testContext)
                      throws java.lang.Exception
Pre-processes a test before execution of the test method in the supplied test context, for example by setting up test fixtures.

This method should be called immediately prior to framework-specific before lifecycle callbacks.

Parameters:
testContext - the test context in which the test method will be executed; never null
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - allows any exception to propagate

afterTestMethod

void afterTestMethod(TestContext testContext)
                     throws java.lang.Exception
Post-processes a test after execution of the test method in the supplied test context, for example by tearing down test fixtures.

This method should be called immediately after framework-specific after lifecycle callbacks.

Parameters:
testContext - the test context in which the test method was executed; never null
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - allows any exception to propagate

afterTestClass

void afterTestClass(TestContext testContext)
                    throws java.lang.Exception
Post-processes a test class after execution of all tests within the class.

This method should be called immediately after framework-specific after class lifecycle callbacks.

If a given testing framework (e.g., JUnit 3.8) does not support after class lifecycle callbacks, this method will not be called for that framework.

Parameters:
testContext - the test context for the test; never null
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - allows any exception to propagate
