ScalaTest quick start

To get started with ScalaTest, copy this FlatSpec into a file named ExampleSpec.scala:

import collection.mutable.Stack
import org.scalatest._

class ExampleSpec extends FlatSpec with Matchers {

  "A Stack" should "pop values in last-in-first-out order" in {
    val stack = new Stack[Int]
    stack.pop() should be (2)
    stack.pop() should be (1)

  it should "throw NoSuchElementException if an empty stack is popped" in {
    val emptyStack = new Stack[Int]
    a [NoSuchElementException] should be thrownBy {

You can compile this FlatSpec (using this Jar file) like this:

$ scalac -cp scalatest_2.11-2.2.6.jar ExampleSpec.scala

Here's how you run it:

$ scala -cp scalatest_2.11-2.2.6.jar ExampleSpec
Run starting. Expected test count is: 2
A Stack
- should pop values in last-in-first-out order
- should throw NoSuchElementException if an empty stack is popped
Run completed in 76 milliseconds.
Total number of tests run: 2
Suites: completed 1, aborted 0
Tests: succeeded 2, failed 0, canceled 0, ignored 0, pending 0
All tests passed.

Your tests passed! As a reward, take a moment to install ScalaTest in your project.
