The Item Storer Example

Here is how you might use JBehave to test the Item Storer Example:

Code Block
// require(url:'', jar='jbehave-1.0.1.jar')
import org.jbehave.core.Run

class JBehaveStorerBehavior {
    def storer = new Storer()

    def static checkPersistAndReverse(cut, value, reverseValue) {
        assert value == cut.get()
        assert reverseValue == cut.getReverse()

    void shouldReverseStrings() {
        checkPersistAndReverse storer, 'hello', 'olleh'

    void shouldReverseNumbers() {
        checkPersistAndReverse storer, 123.456, -123.456

    void shouldReverseLists() {
        checkPersistAndReverse storer, [1, 3, 5], [5, 3, 1]
