Automation Using Geb/Spock/Groovy and a Geb Page Object Generator

Suze will go over the general introduction to the Geb/Spock/Groovy Automation solution as a layer of abstraction over Selenium/JUnit4/Java. She will also teach the technique and advantages of Page Object Modeling where she will demonstrate a simple Geb Page Object and the associated test that runs against the web search pages. Suze will then introduce a tool that she created that reads web pages and creates the application page's Geb Page Object and a test class that contains some basic tests. She will discuss the advantage this gives that allow you to accelerate your testing efforts with the tool, it's output, and take a detailed walk through the code.
