GEB - Very Groovy browser automation

Luke Daley

Download slides

Geb is a browser automation solution for Groovy. It brings together the power of WebDriver, the elegance of jQuery content selection, the robustness of Page Object modelling and the expressiveness of the Groovy language. Geb enables more expressive, more concise, and (very importantly) more maintainable web tests.

In this session we'll explore the foundations of Geb and illustrate how it uses the language features of Groovy to make web automation and testing productive and effective. After exploring the basics we'll explore Geb's rich Content DSL and discuss patterns for achieving maintainable tests. We'll also look at how it combines with Spock, the Enterprise ready testing framework, to enable low cost executable specifications that describe user behaviour, not browser details.
