Subject RE: how to test an exception?
Date Tue, 10 Dec 2002 16:47:12 GMT
I use this pattern:

try {
	// code that should throw exception
	fail("Didn't throw exception!");
}
catch (Exception e) {}

Subject: how to test an exception?


Hi,

I thought there'd be an assertXXX method to test that an exception
should be thrown, but I can't find any...

Or is there another "nice" way to test it?

I mean, I can do this:

try{
	// codeThatShouldThrowException
}
catch(exception) {}

fail();

But that doesn't look very pretty to me, does it?

I noticed that there is an ExceptionTestCase in JUnit, but I'm not sure
if this is available in Cactus as well?

Thanks

Hans
