I am just too tired to understand this.
Tested method:


EasyMock usage for DatabaseException:


and this running as expected while:



while this methos reports a failure in serverControl.verify. The only difference I see in them is that UnsupportedOperationException is a RuntimeException.

Is it the normal behavior (when a RuntimeException is thrown) to be reported as failure even if treated as above?

many thanks

Solved. Very tricky problem . The issue is coming not from the fact that the UnsupportedOperationException is runtime exception, but because the exception is thrown one layer higher that the real mocked interface and so the mock reports a missing call.

Kinda impatient, eh?

Nice to see that you already resolved the problem.

BTW, you can remove the try-catch construct around setting up your mockserver and instead simply declare your test to throw the exception.
