org.mockito.exceptions.base.MockitoException

Could not look up implicit location for storing generated classes You can configure an explicit location by setting the system property 'org.mockito.android.target' to a folder for storing generated class files This location must be in private scope for most API versions, for example: MyActivity.this.getDir("target", Context.MODE_PRIVATE) or getInstrumentation().getTargetContext().getCacheDir().getPath()
