In this article we’ll go through the exercise of writing a method that will write string content to the specified file. There will be an option to specify whether we should overwrite an existing file. In addition, directories should be created if they do not already exist.

Programming language is Scala and testing framework that will be used is Specs2. In the spirit of unit testing, instead of interactions with the file system we’ll use mocks with Mockito (already included in Specs2). All the code will be done using Test-Driven Development (TDD).

This article is based on an existing code done for the open source application BDD Assistant located in the TechnologyConversationsBdd repository.

Let’s get started.
