Testing JVM Applications with Spock

In this half-day, online workshop, you'll gain an understanding of how to apply the Spock framework to implement best practices for testing JVM applications.

Overview

Spock is an open source testing and specification framework for JVM applications.

This course provides an in-depth demonstration of the testing capabilities of Spock and prepares students to integrate these powerful solutions into the development cycle of their JVM applications.

Through lectures, real-world examples, and hands-on exercises, participants will have the opportunity to explore multiple testing practices, including unit testing (Mock objects, stubs ...), integration testing (Test Leakage ...), and functional testing (browser automation, REST APIs testing ...) with the Spock framework.

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend participants have beginner to intermediate proficiency with the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and an understanding of how web applications work in general.

Spock leverages Groovy programming language capabilities to power its DSL features, but no particular expertise with Groovy is required.
