Celerity is a JRuby library for easy and fast functional test automation for web applications. It is a wrapper around the HtmlUnit Java library and is currently aimed at providing the same API and functionality as Watir.


  • Fast: No time-consuming GUI rendering or unessential downloads
  • Scalable: Java threads lets you run tests in parallel
  • Easy to use: Simple API
  • Portable: Cross-platform
  • Unintrusive: No browser window interrupting your workflow (runs in background)


require ‘rubygems’ require ‘celerity‘

browser = browser.goto("") browser.text_field(:name, ‘q’).set("celerity") browser.button(:name, ‘btnG’).submit


  • JRuby 1.1
  • Java 6


  • jruby -S gem install celerity


require "celerity"

browser = browser.goto(‘’) browser.text_field(:name, ‘q’).value = ‘Celerity’ browser.button(:name, ‘btnG’).click

puts "yay" if browser.text.include? ‘‘
