Spock combines the features of tools like JUnit, Mockito, and JBehave into a single powerful Java testing library. With Spock, you use Groovy to write more readable and concise tests. Spock enables seamless integration testing, and with the intuitive Geb library, you can even handle functional testing of web applications.
