Hi

I am new Spring boots, JUnit 5 and Mockito.
I am trying to learn this technolgy.
I have simple RestController with one method createUser.
When I test this controller method through Postman, it work fine.
But when run unit test (Shown below), I am getting NullPointerException (marked inside method).
It is not creating userResponse. Here is the code;

Please can someone advice me where I am going wrong.

@RestController
@RequestMapping("/user")
public class UserRestController {

@Autowired
UserService userService;

@PostMapping(path="save", consumes= {MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON_VALUE}, produces= {MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON_VALUE})
public String createUser(@RequestBody User user) {
User userResponse = userService.createUser(user);
System.out.println("userResponse ..: " + userResponse );  // These is null when Test run

return String.valueOf(userResponse.getId());
}
} //  end UserController


@Service
public class UserServiceImpl implements UserService {

@Autowired
private UserRepository userRepository;

@Override
public User createUser(User user) {
User userResponse = userRepository.save(user);
return userResponse;
}
}

@WebMvcTest(UserRestController.class)
public class UserRestControllerTest {

@Autowired
private MockMvc mockMvc;

@Autowired
private ObjectMapper objectMapper;

@MockBean
UserService userService;

@Test    
@DisplayName("UserRestController createUser Test")
public void createUserTest() throws JsonProcessingException, Exception {

User newUser = new User("Mr", "Dabby", "Wall", 27);
User savedUser = new User(1, "Mr", "Dabby", "Wall", 27);

when(userService.createUser(newUser)).thenReturn(savedUser);

String url = "/user/save";
this.mockMvc.perform(post(url)
.contentType(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON)
.content(objectMapper.writeValueAsString(newUser)))
.andExpect(status().isOk())
.andExpect(content().string("1")
);
}
}


Here is error I am getting;
org.springframework.web.util.NestedServletException: Request processing failed; nested exception is java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.springframework.web.servlet.FrameworkServlet.processRequest(FrameworkServlet.java:1014)

Hi, Ish,
Try to annotate @AutoConfigureMvc to your WebMvcTest class. I guess your MockMvc is null.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
