Spock: It's Only Logical

The unit testing world has been quite dormant, until Spock arrived. Spock is an open-source framework bridging the gap between the regular unit tests we know and love, and the world of BDD (behaviour driven development), where we write specs of how the system should behave. With its concise syntax, the Groovy framework is becoming an awesome alternative to JUnit. Plus, if you'd like to learn Groovy, using it is a logical step. Want to more on how Spock is different? We'll go deep into its features and see what it brings to the table, on top of the regular tools out there.

Key takeaways:
  • How Groovy helps tests (and code in general) be more readable 
  • Spock simple examples
  • Spock features that JUnit doesn't have
