Java Unit Testing: Spock versus JUnit 5

Spock was a game changer for all the Java software developers struggling with unit testing in JUnit 4. Compact syntax, parameterized tests or flexibility to mention just a few advantages. Over 10 years after JUnit 4.0, the brand new, written from scratch, Java 8 optimized JUnit 5 has been released. Is it still worth to write tests in Spock? This presentation compares selected areas of Spock and JUnit 5 to give you an overview how the situation looks like in 2018. It tries to answer the question if its time for Spock to fade into oblivion or maybe quite the opposite it is still light years ahead of JUnit 5.
