Spock Framework Example Project

The purpose of this project is to help you get started with Spock. The project includes several example specifications and build scripts for Ant, Gradle, and Maven. It also makes it easy to create an Eclipse or IDEA project, allowing you to run the example specs from within your IDE.

All three builds (Ant, Gradle, Maven) will automatically download all required dependencies, compile the project, and finally run the example specs. The Gradle build goes one step further by bootstrapping itself, alleviating the need to have a build tool preinstalled.

Prerequisites

  • JDK 5 or higher
  • Ant 1.7 or higher (for Ant build)
  • Maven 2.x (for Maven build)

Building with Ant

Type:

ant clean test

Downloaded files will be stored in the local Maven repository (typically user_home/.m2/repository).

Building with Gradle

Type:

./gradlew clean test

Downloaded files (including the Gradle distribution itself) will be stored in the Gradle user home directory (typically user_home/.gradle).

Building with Maven

Type:

mvn clean test

Downloaded files will be stored in the local Maven repository (typically user_home/.m2/repository).

Creating an Eclipse project

Type:

./gradlew cleanEclipse eclipse

Make sure you have a recent version of the Groovy Eclipse plugin installed. After importing the generated project into a workspace, go to Preferences->Java->Build Path->Classpath Variables and add a variable named GRADLE_CACHE with value user_home/.gradle/cache. (If you have an environment variable GRADLE_USER_HOME set, the correct value is GRADLE_USER_HOME/cache.) You should now be able to build the project, and to run the specs like you would run a JUnit test. See http://wiki.spockframework.org/GettingStarted#Eclipse for more information on how to get started with Spock and Eclipse.

Creating an IDEA project

Type:

./gradlew cleanIdea idea

Open the generated project in IDEA. You should now be able to build the project, and to run the specs like you would run a JUnit test.

Getting hold of the Jars used in this project

Type:

./gradlew collectJars

The Jars will be copied to build/output/lib. The comments in build.gradle explain what they are needed for.
