JUnit differ between failure in real test and pre/post operations

JUnit differ between failure in real test and pre/post operations

JUnit differ between failure in real test and pre/post operations


I am new in using JUnit and I am looking for a way or best practise of using it.
My majore question is how I can differ between a problem occuring
in the preparation of the test (setup method) and
the post-operation steps (teartown)
the real tests done.

I want this as I want to see where the setup/teardown of a test failed and where did the real test fail.
But in both cases the test states an error no matter where it occurs.
So how to differ ? I was thinking of raising own execeptions TearDownException or SetupException.

First I though that Failure and Error can be used for this
separation but than I would miss use the real meaning.
As error is just an unexpected problem and a failure is and expected problems this is already defined how to use.

So I am happy for any help.
