In Groovy we can check if a String value only contains whitespaces with the isAllWhitespace() method. The method checks for spaces, but also takes into account tab and newline characters as whitespace.

assert ''.allWhitespace
assert '  '.allWhitespace
assert '\t '.allWhitespace
assert ' \r\n '.allWhitespace

assert !'mrhaki'.allWhitespace
