JUnit 5 in Confluence App Development

This is a short knowledge article on how to use JUnit 5 in Atlassian Server App Development.

In your pom.xml add JUnit5:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.junit.jupiter</groupId>
            <artifactId>junit-jupiter-api</artifactId>
            <version>5.3.2</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.junit.jupiter</groupId>
            <artifactId>junit-jupiter-engine</artifactId>
            <version>5.3.2</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>        

I recommend you add also Mockito to mock Services etc.

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.mockito</groupId>
            <artifactId>mockito-all</artifactId>
            <version>1.8.5</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>

Finally exclude the JUnit 4 Dependency which comes with the Confluence dependency:

       <dependency>
            <groupId>com.atlassian.confluence</groupId>
            <artifactId>confluence</artifactId>
            <version>${confluence.version}</version>
            <scope>provided</scope>
            <exclusions>
                <exclusion>
                    <groupId>junit</groupId>
                    <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
                </exclusion>
            </exclusions>
        </dependency>

Hope this helps someone to write better tests :slight_smile:
