ArchUnit is a Java library typically used in Code Quality, Code Analyzer applications. ArchUnit has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has build file available, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub, Maven.

ArchUnit is a free, simple and extensible library for checking the architecture of your Java code. That is, ArchUnit can check dependencies between packages and classes, layers and slices, check for cyclic dependencies and more. It does so by analyzing given Java bytecode, importing all classes into a Java code structure. ArchUnit's main focus is to automatically test architecture and coding rules, using any plain Java unit testing framework.

            Archunit check method calls
            Asked 2022-Feb-11 at 14:56

            I have a class that has three methods that shouldn't be called from certain classes.

            How can I check this with Archunit?

            So for example

            How to check Methods return type in ArchUnit c#
            Asked 2022-Jan-28 at 14:21

            I need to check that there is only one class method ("ExampleMethod") that returns "ExampleType". Can I do this with ArchUnit in C #?



            Answered 2021-Oct-28 at 14:29

            You don't need to use ArchUnit - or anything really, just use .NET's built-in reflection API:



            Can I check for usage of lombok.experimental.* annotations with ArchUnit?"
            Asked 2022-Jan-22 at 20:27

            As the question suggests, how can I check for certain imports with archUnit.

            So I want the test to fail, when the tested class itself imports lombok.experimental.*.

            I understand how to check for packages and stuff like that, but the approach doesnt seem to work for imports. Any suggestions?

            My Code:



            Answered 2022-Jan-21 at 16:33

            An import does not generate any signature in the bytecode, so ArchUnit cannot detect it directly.
            Isn't it sufficient to check that your code does not depend on that package?

            areTopLevelClasses() will help us to exclude the inner classes.

            In ArchUnit, I can check that packages .should().beFreeOfCycles(). How can I specify exceptions to this rule for certain cycles?

            E.g., given these packages and their dependencies:



            Answered 2021-Dec-20 at 11:03

            Freezing Arch Rules is always an option to allow for certain violations, but catch others.
            Would that be feasible in your case?



            Does exist a way to verify with ArchUnit that any method doesn´t throw any exception?
            Asked 2021-Nov-09 at 20:44

            I would like to know if exist a way in ArchUnit to avoid that the signature of a method throws any checked exception.



            Answered 2021-Nov-09 at 20:44

            You can access a code unit's declared exceptions via JavaMethod.getThrowsClause() (or JavaConstructor.getThrowsClause(), respectively).

            The following rule using a custom condition forbids the declaration of any exceptions – you can easily adapt it to your needs if you want to exclude RuntimeExceptions:

            Is there any way to enforce a rule like this one with ArchUnit :



            Answered 2021-Oct-26 at 19:26

            Whenever you miss something in the predefined fluent API, try to define a custom predicate/condition. In your case: does this work for you?



            What causes this ArchUnit exception?
            Asked 2021-Oct-21 at 08:37

            Thanks for your time,

            I've been experimenting with Archunit, and I can't get my head around this issue:



            Answered 2021-Oct-21 at 08:37

            As @Thomas got me thinking in the region of the source of my problem, I have solved it, as follows:

            The problem was that the packages that were part of my description of a component(A) were too vague, such that a description of another component(B), could also be considered of that component(A), so some of my classes were thought to belong to >=2 components.



            How to ignore static dependencies when using Archunit
            Asked 2021-Oct-12 at 13:57

            In one of my Archunit tests, I am checking (for example) that only classes in the service layer are depended on by classes in the presentation layer.

            This test is failing because, as far as I am able to determine, some classes in the presentation layer have static imports of constants in other non-service layers.

            How can I mitigate for this? One idea I have is to exclude static imports. How can I do this, using the fluent API?



            Answered 2021-Oct-12 at 13:57

            There is enough between this and this to guide you(us).

            But, as @Manfred pointed out in the comments, static imports do not exist at byte code level, so this is not a problem, and I actually discovered that my issue was not caused by static imports, rather I just needed to grow my list of acceptable dependencies.



            ArchUnit - is there a way to check package access with a generic placeholder?
            Asked 2021-Jul-07 at 22:14

            I would like to check whether FOO.model is only accessed by FOO.service and BAR.model is only accessed by BAR.service and so on.

            Is there a way to achieve this with ArchUnit? Like (pseudocode)



            Answered 2021-Jul-07 at 22:14

            You can use a custom condition to test the origin of each access:
