Hi Lasse,

I am planning on exploring Groovy for writing tests on my new project.
It looks ideal for easily creating complex test setups when the existing libraries do not meet your needs.

Any advice on this topic?

I also noticed recently that Canoo Web Test supports using Groovy instead of XML for writing test cases, and Grails seems to have support for Groovy based web tests. I would be very interested in hearing from someone having experience with that.

Sonny, I haven't tried writing tests with Groovy but I like the idea. The big question for me is, how the test harness integrates with the rest of my toolset, i.e. the IDE and the build tool.
I knew that guy would be trouble! Thanks tiny ad!
