Grails eXchange 2007: Unit Testing and Mock Objects with Groovy

Unit testing is a first-class developer duty with even higher priority in dynamic languages like Groovy. During this talk at the Grails eXchange 2007, Dierk explained the built-in features that Groovy provides for unit testing ranging from basic tests as known from JUnit, through Groovy specific testing strategies, up to advanced testing with the help of Groovy’s stubs and mocks. Special attention was given to Grails related unit test questions.
