The pact provider is responsible for verifying that an API provider adheres to a number of pacts authored by its clients
This library provides the basic tools required to automate the process, and should be usable on its own in many instances.
Framework and build tool specific bindings will be provided in separate libraries that build on top of this core functionality.
Before each interaction is executed, the provider under test will have the opportunity to enter a state. Generally the state maps to a set of fixture data for mocking out services that the provider is a consumer of (they will have their own pacts)
The pact framework will instruct the test server to enter that state by sending:
An example of running provider verification with junit
This example uses Groovy, JUnit 4 and Hamcrest matchers to run the provider verification. As the provider service is a DropWizard application, it uses the DropwizardAppRule to startup the service before running any test.
Warning: It only grabs the first interaction from the pact file with the consumer, where there could be many. (This could possibly be solved with a parameterized test)
An example of running provider verification with spock
This example uses groovy and spock to run the provider verification. Again the provider service is a DropWizard application, and is using the DropwizardAppRule to startup the service.
This example runs all interactions using spocks Unroll feature
