If we use ConnectApi.CommerceCart.addItemToCart , exception occured : System.UnsupportedOperationException: ConnectApi methods are not supported in data siloed tests. Which method or class to use to create cartItem to webCart.

Happy new year!

Most Connect in Apex methods require access to real organization data, and fail unless used in test methods marked @IsTest(SeeAllData=true).

ConnectApi CommerceCart requires access to real org data. In our project, we prepopulate / seed test data per environment for the methods which interacts with ConnectApi Commerce functionalities (entitlements, catalog, buyer groups / accounts) for testing these methods or you can use the real org data in your environment right now.

Once setup is complete, we query for those items along with @IsTest(SeeAllData=true) annotation

 * Your test cart class here...
 * NOTE: 
 * ConnectApi Methods are not supperted in data siloed tests. Please use @IsTest(SeeAllData=true)
 * Test class containing a test setup method cannot have any methods annotated with @IsTest(SeeAllData=true)
public with sharing class YourWebcartClassTest {
    private static void testYourMethod(String productId, Integer quantityAdded) {
        // Query for the user org data with the right entitlements, associated to the buyer groups / accounts 
        User entitledUser = [...];

        // Query for the product org data to be added.
        Product2 correctProduct = [...];

        // Product Quantity for demo purposes
        Integer productQuantity = 5;

        System.runAs(entitledUser) {
            // Assuming your addToCart method has two params (productId and quantity which is required in the ConnectApi.CommerceCart.addItemToCart method)
            myCartServiceClass.addToCartMethod(correctProduct.Id, productQuantity);

            // Perform Assertions here..

This is unfortunately another case when Salesforce product team does not follow their own guidelines. SeeAllData=true should be a last resort. Especially that you might want to create a package which uses ConnectApi and then you cannot reliably expect to know the setup of the target org.

One possible approach: In our ISV packages we use Test.isRunningTest() to skip ConnectApi callouts, but it truly hinders the purpose of unit tests. Also we are yet to pass security review.

I also remember that we had trouble to setup all kinds of data related to Lightning B2B. For example the creation of a Product2 with ProductClass = 'VariationParent' was impossible in api 50.0. Not sure of current state.
