Meet up

Testing Grails Applications with Selenium RC

Friday, 20th November at Skills Matter, London

This meetup is run by GGUG: Groovy & Grails User Group London. Starts at 6:30 PM.

There are several options for functional testing Grails applications but Selenium RC stands out in the power it offers for testing rich web UIs. This talk will demonstrate how to develop effective and well-factored Selenium RC tests that are as easy to write and run as regular Grails unit or integration tests.

Testing Grails Applications with Selenium RC

Selenium Remote Control (RC) is a test tool that allows you to write automated web application UI tests in any programming language against any HTTP website using any mainstream JavaScript-enabled browser.

Robert Fletcher

Rob Fletcher has been developing web apps for 15 years. He’s contributed to various open-source projects including Grails for which he worked on the core as well as developing a range of plugins.

RIA without the Javascript - GWT and Grails

Most browser-based rich user interfaces are based on Javascript or a plugin. Google's Web Toolkit is different because you develop your user interface in Java.

Peter Ledbrook

Peter is a long time Java developer and one of the core Grails committers. He has been developing with Grails since version 0.2 (give or take 0.1). He created the GWT Grails plugin as an exercise to see whether it was possible, but it has since grown into something that can support serious development.
