Groovy is a scripting language that is executed as Java Byte Code. see
http://groovy.codehaus.org

This allows a Mix & Match between Groovy and Java Code.

Since Canoo WebTest is written in Java, Groovy can extend its possiblities
with scripting support.

Currently there a three main usage scenarios:
* Use the GroovyStep with inline code
  to do some simple calculations between  steps.
* Use the GroovyStep with script code in a file
  to create "Macro" steps, repetitions, conditional execution, "Wait Until"
steps and everything else that requires complex logic.
* Use theGroovyBuilder to dynamically generate WebTest (ANT) calls
  like you would otherwise write or generate XML text.
