Specs2 Bindings for the pact-jvm library


In the root folder of your project in build.sbt add the line:

libraryDependencies += "" %% "specs2" % "4.0.1"

or if you are using Gradle:

dependencies {
testCompile ""

Note: PactSpec requires spec2 3.x. Also, for spray users there's an incompatibility between specs2 v3.x and spray. Follow these instructions to resolve that problem:!msg/spray-user/2T6SBp4OJeI/AJlnJuAKPRsJ


To author a test, mix PactSpec into your spec

First we define a service client called ConsumerService. In our example this is a simple wrapper for dispatch, an HTTP client. The source code can be found in the test folder alongside the ExamplePactSpec.

Here is a simple example:

class ExamplePactSpec extends Specification with PactSpec {
val consumer = "My Consumer"
val provider = "My Provider"
override def is = uponReceiving("a request for foo")
.matching(path = "/foo")
.willRespondWith(body = "{}")
.withConsumerTest { providerConfig =>
Await.result(ConsumerService(providerConfig.url).simpleGet("/foo"), Duration(1000, MILLISECONDS)) must beEqualTo(200, Some("{}"))

This spec will be run along with the rest of your specs2 unit tests and will output your pact json to


Forcing pact files to be overwritten (3.6.5+)

By default, when the pact file is written, it will be merged with any existing pact file. To force the file to be overwritten, set the Java system property pact.writer.overwrite to true.
