> Groovy language documentation chapter on junit4 ([http://docs.groovy-lang.org/latest/html/documentation/#_junit_4])
states that "shouldFail can be used the same way it can be used in a GroovyTestCase". In fact
junit4 version returns exception while junit3 returns message.
> I've spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out why shouldFail in my code returns
an exception while documentation and tests say that it returns message. It turned out that
I was reading documentation for a wrong shouldFail. But I've never thought that methods in
GroovyTestCase and GroovyAssert may have different signature or semantic. A small notice in
documentation might help others avoid this confusion. An example for junit 4 version would
be nice too.
