Spock Arquillian Extension

BDD Testing in the container!

What is it?

Arquillian is testing framework, developed at, that empowers developers to write integration tests for business objects that are executed inside of an embedded or remote container--options include a servlet container, a Java EE application server or a Java SE CDI environment.

Spock is a testing and specification framework for Java and Groovy applications. What makes it stand out from the crowd is its beautiful and highly expressive specification language. Thanks to its JUnit runner, Spock is compatible with most IDEs, build tools, and continuous integration servers. Spock is inspired from JUnit, jMock, RSpec, Groovy, Scala, Vulcans, and other fascinating life forms.

The Spock Arquillian Extension opens up for the beauty of Spock tests running in-container using Arquillian with full EJB, Resource and CDI injection.


 def static JavaArchive "create deployment"() {
     return ShrinkWrap.create(JavaArchive.class)
             .addClasses(AccountService.class, Account.class, SecureAccountService.class)
             .addAsManifestResource(EmptyAsset.INSTANCE, "beans.xml");
 AccountService service
 def "transferring between accounts should result in account withdrawal and deposit"() {
      service.transfer(from, to, amount)
      from.balance == fromBalance
      to.balance == toBalance
      from <<         [new Account(100),  new Account(10)]
      to <<           [new Account(50),   new Account(90)]
      amount <<       [50,                10]
      fromBalance <<  [50,                0]
      toBalance <<    [100,               100]


The Spock Arquillian Extension supports both Groovy major versions supported by Spock Framework. In order to select proper versions, you need to put following dependencies into your section:

     <!-- replace * with standalone or container, according to your needs -->

 <!-- External Projects -->


For Groovy 2.x, use spock 0.7-groovy-2.0 or later and Groovy 2.1.4 or later For Groovy 1.x, use spock 0.7-groovy-1.8 or later and Groovy 1.8.9 or later

You must annotate the JUnit Runner with the ArquillianSputnik runner.
