PowerMock is provided with the annotation @SuppressStaticInitializationFor to disable the static initializer.

Example of use

Mocking class

When the class is loaded, the static initializer sets the field to the string "value".

Here, we have prepared a judge method that returns true if the field is set to "value" and false otherwise.


public class SampleEm {
	private static String field = null;
	static {
		field = "value";
	public boolean judge() {
		return "value".equals(field);

Test class

To use PowerMock with JUnit, specify PowerMockRunner for @RunWith.

For @PrepareForTest, specify the class to mock.

I also specify a class to mock in @SuppressStaticInitializationFor, but be aware that it is not@SuppressStaticInitializationFor (SampleEm.class).

public class SampleEmTest {

	public void test() throws Exception {
		SampleEm em = new SampleEm();
		boolean result = em.judge();

		//Check the result

When I run the test, this JUnit succeeds because the static initializer is disabled and the field is not set to "value".
