Play framework 2.2.1: Create Http.Context for tests

I've been trying to create an Http.Context for tests using its constructor unsuccessfully. Does anybody see what I'm doing wrong?

I've looked at the following but it only applies to Play 2.0:

Play framework 2.0: Store values in Http.Context

It looks like the class changed for 2.2.1 and it has more parameters for the constructor as shown here:

https://github.com/playframework/playframework/blob/2.1.x/framework/src/play/src/main/java/play/mvc/Http.java

This my code:

import java.util.Map;
import java.util.Collections;
import org.junit.*;
import static org.mockito.Mockito.*;
import play.mvc.*;
import play.test.*;
import play.mvc.Http;
import play.mvc.Http.Context;
import play.api.mvc.RequestHeader;
import static play.test.Helpers.*;
import static org.fest.assertions.Assertions.*;


public class TemplateTests {

public static FakeApplication app;
private final Http.Request request = mock(Http.Request.class);

@BeforeClass
public static void startApp() {
app = Helpers.fakeApplication();
Helpers.start(app);
}

@Before
public void setUp() throws Exception {
Map<String, String> flashData = Collections.emptyMap();
Map<String, Object> argData = Collections.emptyMap();
Long id = 2L;
play.api.mvc.RequestHeader header = mock(play.api.mvc.RequestHeader.class);
Http.Context context = mock(Http.Context(id, header, request , flashData, flashData, argData));
Http.Context.current.set(context);
}


@Test
public void renderTemplate() {
Content html = views.html.index.render();
assertThat(contentType(html)).isEqualTo("text/html");
assertThat(contentAsString(html)).contains("myindex");
}

@AfterClass
public static void stopApp() {
Helpers.stop(app);
}
}


This is the error that I'm seeing when running a test:

play test

Any ideas?

If I don't create a context I get:

[error] Test TemplateTests.renderTemplate failed: java.lang.RuntimeException: There is no HTTP Context available from here.

Answer

Looks like this seems to have fixed it for me:

@Before
public void setUp() throws Exception {
    Map<String, String> flashData = Collections.emptyMap();
    Map<String, Object> argData = Collections.emptyMap();
    Long id = 2L;
    play.api.mvc.RequestHeader header = mock(play.api.mvc.RequestHeader.class);
    Http.Context context = new Http.Context(id, header, request, flashData, flashData, argData);
    Http.Context.current.set(context);
}
