Newer JVM languages such as JRuby, Groovy, and Scala let you work at a
higher level than Java. This talk will show you ScalaTest, a new
testing tool that will let you work at a higher level than JUnit and
TestNG. You'll learn about high-level features of Scala such as traits
and self-types, implicit conversions and parameters, functions and
closures, and internal DSLs, and see how ScalaTest exploits these
features to help you work more productively. You'll see how you can
reduce the lines of test code you write by half and more, how to mix
Scala into your existing JUnit or TestNG infrastructure, and how to
use Scala in various testing styles, including unit testing,
behavior-driven development, integration and acceptance testing, and
high-level property-based testing. You need not already know Scala to
attend this talk, as you will be taught just enough Scala to
understand the examples.

Bill Venners is president of Artima, Inc., publisher of Artima
Developer (www.artima.com). He is author of the book, Inside the Java
Virtual Machine, a programmer-oriented survey of the Java platform's
architecture and internals. His popular columns in JavaWorld magazine
covered Java internals, object-oriented design, and Jini. Active in
the Jini Community since its inception, Bill led the Jini Community's
ServiceUI project, whose ServiceUI API became the de facto standard
way to associate user interfaces to Jini services.  Bill is also the
lead developer and designer of ScalaTest, an open source testing tool
for Scala and Java developers, and coauthor with Martin Odersky and
Lex Spoon of the book, Programming in Scala.
