"Tests don't break things; they dispel the illusion that it works." (Anonymous)
In this era of "Test-First" and "Test-Driven" development, the modern software engineer knows that testing is no longer an optional part of the process. You need to have the best tools at your fingertips: a set of utilities that maximize your results with a minimum of effort. Groovy offers Java developers an optimal set of testing tools.
In this talk, we use EasyB to gather user stories as executable documentation. We look at GroovyTestCases -- a drop-in replacement for JUnit TestCases that expand the pool of helpful assertions. We'll explore mocking and stubbing with Groovy. And we'll finally go public with Groovy's privacy "issues".
