Last week I wrote about writing JUnit tests with accurate exception matching
. That relies on the Hamcrest
library to work. Unfortunately the JUnit Maven
artefact uses only the hamcrest-core
dependency which leads to some compilation errors like this...
The dependency tree
shows up like this...
As expected, but incomplete. After checking the Hamcrest Distributables
page it becomes clear that the hamcrest-core
is the bare minimum dependency and doesn't include the required matchers and supporting classes. What's required is the hamcrest-library
dependency. This is easily resolved, just add this to your pom.xml
The dependency tree now looks like this and all of the compilation errors are fixed!
