public interface Answer<T>

Generic interface to be used for configuring mock's answer. Answer specifies an action that is executed and a return value that is returned when you interact with the mock.

Example of stubbing a mock with custom answer:

 when(mock.someMethod(anyString())).thenAnswer(new Answer() {
     Object answer(InvocationOnMock invocation) {
         Object[] args = invocation.getArguments();
         Object mock = invocation.getMock();
         return "called with arguments: " + args;
     }
 });
 
 //Following prints "called with arguments: foo"
 System.out.println(mock.someMethod("foo"));
