simplier & better mocking
06/10/2012 Mockito 1.9.5 released! See the release notes. Should appear in maven cdntral shortly.
We are currently moving a few stuff from Google Code to Github.
For now only the code repository is moved, issue tracker might follow, but other stuff might stay there like the wiki pages and documentation, discussion group will stay at google.
Mockito is a mocking framework that tastes really good. It lets you write beautiful tests with clean & simple API. Mockito doesn't give you hangover because the tests are very readable and they produce clean verification errors. Read more about features & motivations.
"We decided during the main conference that we should use JUnit 4 and Mockito because we think they are the future of TDD and mocking in Java" - Dan North, the originator of BDD
Over 15000 downloads of 1.9.0 version ('12), excluding maven/Gradle users. For latest figures see the downloads.

Download mockito-all-x.x.x.jar and put it on the classpath. If you use a fancy build system with declarative dependencies like Gradle or Maven please -> Click HERE <-
import static org.mockito.Mockito.*; // mock creation List mockedList = mock(List.class); // using mock object ; observe that it didn't throw any "unexpected interaction exception" exception mockedList.add("one"); mockedList.clear(); // selective & explicit verification verify(mockedList).add("one"); verify(mockedList).clear();
// you can mock conmcrete classes, not only interfaces LinkedList mockedList = mock(LinkedList.class); // stubbing; before the actual execution when(mockedList.get(0)).thenReturn("first"); // the following prints "first" System.out.println(mockedList.get(0)); // the following prints "null" because get(999) was not subbed System.out.println(mockedList.get(999));

Mockito is served to you by Szczepan Faber and friends. First people who tried Mockito were developers of the Guardian project in London in early 2008. Here is how Szczepan explained why we need another mocking framework?
Firstly, hats down before EasyMock folks for their ideas on beautiful and refactorable mocking syntax. First hacks on Mockito were done on top of the EasyMock? code.
Here are just some of my friends who contributed ideas to Mockito (apologize if I missed somebody): Igor Czechowski, Patric Fornasier, Jim Barritt, Felix Leipold, Liz Keogh, Bartosz Bańkowski.
Now some other people joined the gang : Brice Dutheil and David Wallace.
Special thanks to Erik Ramfelt, and Steve Christou for putting Mockito on his Jenkins server (continuous integration).
Thanks to Karol Poźniak for the logo :)
Finally, thanks to Erik Brakkee who helps us getting jars to maven central
