Agile Groovy Acceptance Testing with Geb
Geb is a Groovy based framework for automated acceptance testing of web applications - think "Selenium on steroids". Learn about how Geb uses the Page model to make acceptance tests less brittle and strategies for getting the maximum value out of your acceptance tests.
We'll look at how easy it is to install and get started with Geb and will then work on developing well structured Geb tests that allow for good acceptance test coverage without being too brittle.
