NullPointerException on my test’s first use of a mock

This had happened before, but it got me again the other day: I was using Unitils‘ mock annotations (great stuff!) to set up my mocks, but my test failed with a NullPointerException the first place I tried to set an expection on the mock.  The reason being… I forgot to @RunWith(UnitilsJUnit4TestClassRunner.class) .  Sadly, I don’t think I was much faster diagnosing the problem this time than I was last time.

Goal: Next time this symptom appears, instantly suspect that I’m using the wrong runner!  :)
