  1. Hi Joe,

    Can you tell which Selelnium open source framework Unmesh mentioned? I got the redwoodhq but didn’t get the first one?

    1. Hi Kunal – Yes I believe it was GEB (http://www.gebish.org/) Geb is a browser automation solution.

      It brings together the power of WebDriver, the elegance of jQuery content selection, the robustness of Page Object modelling and the expressiveness of the Groovy language.

      It can be used for scripting, scraping and general automation — or equally as a functional/web/acceptance testing solution via integration with testing frameworks such as Spock, JUnit & TestNG.
