So Why is Spock such a Big Deal?

It was the end of an old year and the beginning of a new, and, as ever, there is always time at such a time when you need to find something to do. Having seen a posting on the ACCU General email list from the editor of Overload [1] requesting articles on testing for the next issue, I set out to write an article about The One True Testing Framework on the JVM, Spock.

Overload is a paper journal the articles of which are published online available to all, even those people who are not ACCU members.[2] So instead of replicating the article here, I provide links to the article published by ACCU. The official reference is: Overload, 24(131):26–32, February 2016. There are HTML and PDF renderings of the article.


1. Overload is one of two journals published by ACCU, see http://accu.org/index.php/journal
2. Are there any professional programmers who are not members of ACCU?
