Spock Framework

Spock is a BDD-style developer testing and specification framework for Java and Groovy applications. To learn more about Spock, visit http://spockframework.org. To run a sample spec in your browser, go to http://webconsole.spockframework.org.

Ad-Hoc Intermediate Releases

For intermediate stable builds we recommend to use Jitpack (go here for instructions):

  1. Add https://jitpack.io as a respository
  2. Use org.spockframework.spock as groupId and the normal artifact-id
repositories {
    // ...
    maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
}

dependencies {
        compile 'org.spockframework.spock:spock-core:spock-1.3'
        compile 'org.spockframework.spock:spock-spring:spock-1.3'
}
  1. For intermediate releases you can also use the commit-hash as version, e.g. compile com.github.spockframework.spock:spock-core:d91bf785a1

Modules

  • spock-core -- Core framework. This is the only mandatory module.
  • spock-specs -- Specifications for spock-core, implemented using Spock. Not required for using Spock.
  • spock-spring -- Integration with the Spring TestContext Framework.
  • spock-tapestry -- Integration with the Tapestry 5 IoC container.
  • spock-guice -- Integration with Guice 2/3.
  • spock-unitils -- Integration with Unitils.
  • spock-report -- Interactive, business-friendly HTML reports.

Building

Supported versions

Spock is supported for Java version 7, and 8 (with Groovy 2.5 Java 9+ are supported as well).

Spock is supported for Groovy version 2.4+

The tests are testing spock with a specific versions (variants) of groovy. Default is groovy version 2.4

The groovy 2.4 and 2.5 variant should pass on all supported JDK versions:

./gradlew clean build

(Windows: gradlew clean build). All build dependencies, including the build tool itself, will be downloaded automatically (unless already present).

Java 9 Module Names

All published jars (beginning with Spock 1.2) will contain Automatic-Module-Name manifest attribute. This allows for Spock to be used in a Java 9 Module Path.

  • spock-core -- org.spockframework.core
  • spock-spring -- org.spockframework.spring
  • spock-tapestry -- org.spockframework.tapestry
  • spock-guice -- org.spockframework.guice
  • spock-unitils -- org.spockframework.unitils

So module authors can use well known module names for the spock modules, e.g. something like this:

open module foo.bar {
  requires org.spockframework.core;
  requires org.spockframework.spring;
}

Live Long And Prosper!
