Subject Re: Mocking Framework
Date Sun, 19 Nov 2017 11:28:28 GMT
Hi all

I've resurrected the Spock branch (https://github.com/apache/jmeter/pull/332)
does anyone have any thoughts on this thread?
Does this need a vote, some more work or discussion?
Is there a test which I should try to re-write in Spock to make sure it can
do what we need?
Unfortunately a lot of the code hasn't been written with testability in
mind, so mocking etc. is difficult without refactoring.
I really think this will help improve unit test coverage in JMeter by
making it easier (and more fun) to test.

If you had some time please read http://spockframework.org/spock/docs/1.0/
alongside the tests I've created, it has more detail about Mock/Spy/Stubs
in Spock.

Thanks

Graham
