ScalaTest is an open-source testing framework that aims to speed up tests by leveraging the Scala programming language.  ScalaTest 1.0, released today claims to reduce the amount of test code lines required in testing. This reduction in code lines is a product of Scala, an object-oriented language that compiles to Java bytecode and runs on the Java Virtual Machine. “Scala lets you express yourself much more concisely compared to Java,” said Bill Venners, president of Artima. “ScalaTest uses Scala to make testing code much more concise and clear.”
