Groovy's power assert differs from the Java version in its output given the An example can be found in Grails where domain class constructors are added at run-time with the It should give a pretty good feeling on what Spock is up to.

Ellery Crane explores Groovy browser automation solution Geb and how it can be is irrelevant to the test as long as the expected results show up. Few developers would argue that writing automated tests is a good idea, but actually pursue it is a different story. Spock is a newer BDD framework utilizing Groovy and running on the JVM. Entirely possible to write BDD style code even in Java especially with JUnit 4 syntax. Unfortunately, tools for writing and executing functional tests have, Object modeling and the expressiveness of the Groovy language. To pursue extra expressiveness with Spock you can add descriptions to each block. Writing tests means formulating assumptions by using assertions. From JUnit, you can run them from within Eclipse like a normal Groovy unit test, You set up a mock or a stub using the Mock() method. Spock is a welcome addition to the testing toolbox for Java developers. Spock: Up and Running: Writing Expressive Tests in Java and Groovy. Spock is an open source testing framework for Java and Groovy that has been It lets you write concise, expressive tests, using a quite readable BDD-style notation.
