Writing functional tests using Geb in a Grails application is fine for a development team. But when you have QA automation engineers, giving them access to the Grails app might not be the best solution (specially when they belong to a different team).
So the same way DevOps allow developers and sysadmins collaborate together, let's talk about DevQA, and make them happy using a framework stack powered by Groovy.
Besides above considerations, in this talk I will show a live example on how to setup an independent project for functional tests using Gradle, Groovy, Spock and Geb.
