Do you really send HTTP requests for testing Controllers when used MockMVC?

Hi, it's really confusing to understand whether a real HTTP request is sent to the controller or test-controller in case of using spring's MockMVC instance while testing the Controller classes in a java based web application. Please share your experience.
Thanks.

No. MockMvc doesn't start the web server. It mocks incoming requests and routes them to the appropriate controllers.
