Pact plugin driver library for the JVM

Source Code

Pact support library that provides an interface for interacting with Pact plugins

State of implementation

  • The ability to find plugins.
  • Load plugins and extract the plugin manifests that describe what the plugin provides.
  • Provide a catalogue of features provided by the plugins.
  • Provide a messaging bus to facilitate communication between the language implementation and the plugins.
  • Manage the plugin lifecycles.

Building the JVM driver

The JVM driver is built with Gradle. The build can be run with ./gradlew build, but there is a test DriverPactTest that requires a Protobuf plugin to work. Either skip or disable that test, or install the prototype Protobuf plugin before running the build.
