4. Running JavaScript Tests on a CI Server with Karma, Chrome and Fake X

5. Autoloading PhantomJS with Geb

When it comes to building integration tests for web applications, nothing beats Geb for me. For those not acquainted with Geb, it’s a Groovy library on top of Selenium that provides a more easier API to interact with the browser from your unit tests. Geb really makes testing a web application a joy.
