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.
RoboSpock combines two great test frameworks and lets you get the best of both - to run fast unit test written with Groovy on local JVM. It integrates well with Gradle build system and works with older Ant based projects.
JUnit is a simple framework to write repeatable tests. It is an instance of the xUnit architecture for unit testing frameworks.
