#75 What you can expect from Spock 2
Spring 2021 – long awaited – Spock 2.0 has been finally released. Heavily rewritten to leverage JUnit Platform (a crucial part of JUnit 5) is ready for even better testing in your projects.
However, what about the support for Groovy 3 and Java 14+? Is Spock compatible with a brand new Groovy 4 and Java 17+? Could the parametrized tests be even better? How problematic will it be to migrate existing tests from Spock 1.3 (especially those using JUnit 4’s rules)? What other new features and breaking changes are expected in 2.x?
During this talk, I will summarize over 2 years of development, explaining if/how it impacts the status quo (Spock 2 vs JUnit Jupiter 5) presented by me three years ago.
