Best way to test rules

I was wondering what the best way would be to test rules in a plugin.? For instance if my new plugin adds a rule for ‘foobarXXX’, how can I go about in a unit test to test that the correct tasks will be added and configured?

You can unit test this with a ProjectBuilder. Effectively, the task will be created as soon as it is referenced from the TaskContainer. Just apply your plugin to the project, access the task, and define your assertions.

Oh yeah baby, it works quite nice. Once the rule has been created then you simply can do something like

Task myTestTask = project.tasks.findByName('foobarTask')

myTestTask instanceof MyRuleInstantiatedTask

in a Spock unittest .
