  • How do I test the pointcuts

    I have written an aspect to audit trail some functions in my web services. To test this aspect, I can write a JUnit to cover the recordUserAccess function,
    How can I unit test how many functions this adviser is being applied to. I want to test this against the functions which I really want to audit. What might happen
    is that as project progresses more functions could sneekily get the adviser, just because they happen to match the expression.

    <aop:aspect ref="auditor">
    pointcut="execution(* com.mycompany.someproject.service.webservice.*WebS ervice.get*(..)) and args(adviserId)" />

    Also, I would not want to copy the expression in a unit test, may be some how excess this pointcut using some Id and test it. Is this possible?

    If you would use SpringIDE it shows you in a handy window which methods get advised by your pointcut.

      Thanks for the tip. No, We use IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. I was looking for a JUnit kind of test which could be run under cruize.
