                                               java.lang.String fieldName)
Convenience method to get a field from a class type.

The method will first try to look for a declared field in the same class. If the field is not declared in this class it will look for the field in the super class. This will continue throughout the whole class hierarchy. If the field is not found an IllegalArgumentException is thrown.

Parameters:
type - The type of the class where the method is located.
fieldName - The method names.
Returns:
A java.lang.reflect.Field.
Throws:
FieldNotFoundException - If a field cannot be found in the hierarchy.

getFields

public static java.lang.reflect.Field[] getFields(java.lang.Class<?> clazz,
                                                  java.lang.String... fieldNames)
Get an array of Field's that matches the supplied list of field names.

Parameters:
clazz - The class that should contain the fields.
fieldNames - The names of the fields that will be returned.
Returns:
An array of Field's. May be of length 0 but not null

getMethod

public static java.lang.reflect.Method getMethod(java.lang.Class<?> type,
                                                 java.lang.String methodName,

Convenience method to get a method from a class type without having to catch the checked exceptions otherwise required. These exceptions are wrapped as runtime exceptions.

The method will first try to look for a declared method in the same class. If the method is not declared in this class it will look for the method in the super class. This will continue throughout the whole class hierarchy. If the method is not found an IllegalArgumentException is thrown.

Parameters:
type - The type of the class where the method is located.

getMethod

public static java.lang.reflect.Method getMethod(java.lang.Class<?> type,
                                                 java.lang.Class<?>... parameterTypes)
Convenience method to get a method from a class type without having to catch the checked exceptions otherwise required. These exceptions are wrapped as runtime exceptions.

The method will first try to look for a declared method in the same class. If the method is not declared in this class it will look for the method in the super class. This will continue throughout the whole class hierarchy. If the method is not found an MethodNotFoundException is thrown. Since the method name is not specified an TooManyMethodsFoundException is thrown if two or more methods matches the same parameter types in the same class.

Parameters:
type - The type of the class where the method is located.

newInstance

public static <T> T newInstance(java.lang.Class<T> classToInstantiate)

No byte-code manipulation is needed to perform this operation and thus it's not necessary use the PowerMockRunner or PrepareForTest annotation to use this functionality.

Type Parameters:
T - The type of the instance to create.
Parameters:
classToInstantiate - The type of the instance to create.
Returns:
A new instance of type T, created without invoking the constructor.

Parameters:
type - The type of the class where the constructor is located.
parameterTypes - All parameter types of the constructor (may be null).
Returns:
A java.lang.reflect.Constructor.

                      throws java.lang.Exception
Invoke a static private or inner class method. This may be useful to test private methods.

Throws:
java.lang.Exception

invokeConstructor

public static <T> T invokeConstructor(java.lang.Class<T> classThatContainsTheConstructorToTest,
                                      java.lang.Class<?>[] parameterTypes,
                                      java.lang.Object[] arguments)
                           throws java.lang.Exception
Invoke a constructor. Useful for testing classes with a private constructor when PowerMock cannot determine which constructor to invoke. This only happens if you have two constructors with the same number of arguments where one is using primitive data types and the other is using the wrapped counter part. For example:
 public class MyClass {
     private MyClass(Integer i) {
         ...
     } 
 
     private MyClass(int i) {
         ...
     }
 
This ought to be a really rare case. So for most situation, use invokeConstructor(Class, Object...) instead.

Returns:
The object created after the constructor has been invoked.
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - If an exception occur when invoking the constructor.

setInternalStateFromContext

public static void setInternalStateFromContext(java.lang.Object instance,

                                               java.lang.Object... additionalContexts)
Set the values of multiple instance fields defined in a context using reflection. The values in the context will be assigned to values on the instance. This method will traverse the class hierarchy when searching for the fields. Example usage:

Given:

 public class MyContext {
        private String myString = "myString";
        protected int myInt = 9;
 }
 
 public class MyInstance {
        private String myInstanceString;
        private int myInstanceInt;
 
 }
 
then
 Whitebox.setInternalStateFromContext(new MyInstance(), new MyContext());
 
will set the instance variables of myInstance to the values specified in MyContext.

By default the FieldMatchingStrategy.MATCHING strategy is used which means that the fields defined in the context but not found in the classOrInstance are silently ignored.

Parameters:
instance - the object whose fields to modify.
context - The context where the fields are defined.
additionalContexts - Optionally more additional contexts.
