More Groovy/Griffon/FEST Testing

Posted by: TheKaptain In: Development

In my continuing exploration of FEST testing using Groovy and the Griffon framework, I’ve added some tests for the ability to change the JXBusyLabel coloration on the fly.

Posted by: TheKaptain In: Development

Today was a pretty great day, I must say. I got a chance to work with the brand new Griffon framework and must say – the combination of clear MVC architecture, Grails style convention over configuration and already powerful plugin selection make it pretty sexy.
