    NullpointerException for @BeforeMethod in TestNG

    Sueleyman Vurucu Expert

      I migrated my tests from JUnit to TestNG. In JUnit I have no problem when I use injected field with @Before. But when I use @BeforeMethod in TestNG I get a Nullpointerexception.

       

      It seems so that the method called on wrong time. If I catch the NullpointerException then it works fine. Example shown below:

       

      ....

       

      @Inject

      UserTransaction utx

       

      ...

      @BeforeMethod

      public void startUTX(){

      if(utx!=null){

      utx.begin();

      }

      }

       

      So at test initialisation the NullPointer occurs. Afterwards the testcase works fine.

       

      My env:

      Jboss 7.1.1

      Arquillian 1.0.2.Final

      TestNG 6.5
