Everyone knows that testing takes time, but you shouldn’t skip testing because of a hard-to-meet deadline. What can you do to be sure you’ll have the following weekend free without worrying that a sudden call will spoil the fun? The answer is to let your testing code be groovier. This session discusses Groovy, a dynamic language for the JVMâ„¢ machine whose close integration with the Javaâ„¢ programming language makes it ideal for testing purposes. With Groovy you can write less code and be more expressive, you can leverage your knowledge of JUnit extensions (such as dbUnit or XMLUnit) to speed up development, and it is also TestNG-friendly.
