In this half-day, online workshop, you'll learn how to create acceptance tests for your web applications using Geb.
Geb was born out of a desire to make browser automation easier and more productive. It aims to be a developer tool, in that it allows and encourages the use of programming and language constructs instead of creating a restricted environment. Geb uses Groovy’s dynamism to remove the noise and boilerplate code, so developers can focus on what’s important — the content and interaction.
This course provides an in-depth demonstration of the testing capabilities of Geb and prepares students to integrate these powerful solutions into the development cycle of their web applications.
We recommend participants have beginner to intermediate proficiency with the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and an understanding of how web applications work in general. Geb leverages Groovy programming language capabilities to power its DSL features, but no particular expertise with Groovy is required.
Through lectures, real-world examples, and hands-on exercises, participants will have the opportunity to explore multiple testing scenarios with Geb. The following topics are covered in this workshop:
- Introduction to Geb
- Cross-Browser Automation
- Navigator API
- Page Object
- Content DSL
- UI Interaction
- WebDriver Binaries Gradle Plugin
