Nested CallActivity Mockito Serialization Problem

Hi,
You can find the test project here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B53lOHnXR0yJVHlqS3lRajhqUXc

I have 3 bpmn process. Level1 calls Level2 and Level2 calls Level3. Level3 has only one service task which uses an expression.
I pass a spring managed bean from L1 to L2 and then L2 to L3. It works when I don't mock it. It sometimes works when I mock the bean.

In project there are 2 test classes:
ProcessTestNestedCallActivityProcess.java(uses activitiTestContext.xml):
Real spring bean.
ProcessTestNestedCallActivityProcessWithMock.java(uses activitiMockContext.xml):
There are 2 test methods.
First one someTimesFails() fails sometimes as name implies.
Second one alwaysFails() fails all the time with a serialization exception.

The difference is, in first test method, I call real method when service bean's method is called. On the contrary I call thenAnswer in the second test method.


@Test
@Deployment(resources = { "diagram/dummy/level1Process.bpmn", "diagram/dummy/level2Process.bpmn", "diagram/dummy/level3Process.bpmn" })
public void someTimesFails() throws Exception
{
   dummyService = Mockito.mock(DummyService.class, Mockito.withSettings().serializable());
   Mockito.when(dummyService.dummyMethod("Level 3 Service Task")).thenCallRealMethod();
   …
}


@Test
@Deployment(resources = { "diagram/dummy/level1Process.bpmn", "diagram/dummy/level2Process.bpmn", "diagram/dummy/level3Process.bpmn" })
public void alwaysFails() throws Exception
{
   dummyService = Mockito.mock(DummyService.class, Mockito.withSettings().serializable());
   Mockito.when(dummyService.dummyMethod("Level 3 Service Task")).thenAnswer(new Answer<Serializable>()
   {
      @Override
      public Serializable answer(InvocationOnMock invocation) throws Throwable
      {
         System.out.println("Called with mock");
         return "Called with mock";
      }
   });
   …
}


In second test method, I got this:

2344 [main] ERROR org.activiti.engine.impl.interceptor.CommandContext  - Error while closing command context

Is there a restriction on using thenAnswer method in unit tests?
