October 2013 Meeting - Testing Your Spring MVC App with Groovy/Spock

October 2013 Meeting
If you are in the business of creating web applications using the popular Spring MVC framework, then you know how tricky it can be to unit test the logic encapsulated in your controllers and services.  For our October 2013 meeting, we will look at how Groovy eases testing via the Spock testing framework.  The meeting will be based on John Thompon's recent presentation at SpringOne (2GX) 2013 last month. 

Hope to see you there!  Make sure to RSVP to ensure access to the building at https://tampajug-oct2013.eventbrite.com
Meeting Info
Testing Spring MVC Controllers with Spock
Everyone knows controllers can be tricky little buggers to test. Spring MVC Test brought some exciting testing capabilities to Spring 3.2, but it you're left on your own for mocking the service layer in your controllers.

We'll take a look at the Groovy approach of using Spock to unit test your controller interactions with the service layer and Spring MVC Test to unit test controller interactions with the web layer.
Topics include
  • Introduction to Spring MVC Test
  • Quick Groovy Primer
  • Introduction to Spock
  • Bringing it all together
