[Webtest] new beta: scripting WebTest with Groovy
Fri, 3 Sep 2004 20:51:14 +0200
Groovy is a scripting language that is executed as Java Byte Code. see
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.
