How to make mock to void methods with Mockito

Call Real Method

Mock not void method:
Mock void method:
You can use any of the doReturn(), doThrow(), doAnswer(),doNothing(), doCallRealMethod() family of methods.

Do Throw

Mock void method with doThrow():

privare TransferSender transferSender;

Transfer transfer = new Transfer();
Mockito.doThrow(new MyException("kabooom!").when(transferSender).send(transfer);
