FFLib ApexMocks Framework

Push Source and Run Apex Tests

ApexMocks is a mocking framework for the Salesforce Lightning Apex language.

It derives its inspiration from the well known Java mocking framework Mockito

Using ApexMocks on the Salesforce Lightning Platform

ApexMocks allows you to write tests to both verify behavior and stub dependencies.

An assumption is made that you are using some form of Dependency Injection - for example passing dependencies via a constructor:

public MyClass(ClassA.IClassA dependencyA, ClassB.IClassB dependencyB)

This allows you to pass mock implementations of dependencies A and B when you want to unit test MyClass.

Lets assume we've written our own list interface fflib_MyList.IList that we want to either verify or stub:

public class fflib_MyList implements IList
    public interface IList
        void add(String value);
        String get(Integer index);
        void clear();
        Boolean isEmpty();

verify() behaviour verification

// Given
fflib_ApexMocks mocks = new fflib_ApexMocks();
fflib_MyList.IList mockList = (fflib_MyList.IList)mocks.mock(fflib_MyList.class);

// When

// Then
((fflib_MyList.IList) mocks.verify(mockList)).add('bob');
((fflib_MyList.IList) mocks.verify(mockList, fflib_ApexMocks.NEVER)).clear();

If the method wasn't called the expected number of times, or with the expected arguments, verify will throw an exception. The exception message contains details of the expected and actual invocations:

METHOD: EmailService__sfdc_ApexStub.sendTo(String)
EXPECTED ARGS: [[contains "user-one"]]

when() dependency stubbing

fflib_ApexMocks mocks = new fflib_ApexMocks();
fflib_MyList.IList mockList = (fflib_MyList.IList)mocks.mock(fflib_MyList.class);



Setting a read-only field, such as a formula

Account acc = new Account();
Integer mockFormulaResult = 10;
acc = (Account)fflib_ApexMocksUtils.setReadOnlyFields(
        new Map<SObjectField, Object> {Account.Your_Formula_Field__c => mockFormulaResult}
System.assertEquals(mockFormulaResult, acc.Your_Formula_Field__c);

Stub API

ApexMocks now implements the Stub API!

Previously, stub objects had to be generated using the ApexMocks generator at compile time. Now, stub objects can be generated dynamically at run time.

fflib_ApexMocks mocks = new fflib_ApexMocks();
fflib_MyList mockList = (fflib_MyList)mocks.mock(fflib_MyList.class);

You can continue to use the ApexMocks generator, if you wish, but this is no longer a prerequisite to using ApexMocks.

Generating Mock files

Run the apex mocks generator from the command line.

java -jar apex-mocks-generator-4.0.0.jar
    <Filepath to source files>
    <Filepath to interface properties file>
    <Name of generated mocks class>
    <Filepath to target files - can be the same as filepath to source files>
    <API version of generated mocks class - optional argument, 30.0 by default>

# E.g. the command used to generate the current version of fflib_Mocks.
java -jar apex-mocks-generator-4.0.0.jar "/Users/jbloggs/Dev/fflib-apex-mocks/src/classes" "/Users/jbloggs/Dev/fflib-apex-mocks/" "fflib_Mocks" "/Users/jbloggs/Dev/fflib-apex-mocks/src/classes" "30.0"

Instantiate the generated classes as follows:

fflib_ApexMocks mocks = new fflib_ApexMocks();
fflib_MyList.IList mockList = new MockMyList(mocks);
