+# AutoTest Plugin
+
+Author: Björn Wilmsmann, MetaSieve
+
+## Usage
+
+AutoTest provides an automatic (or continuous) testing feature for Grails. After having installed AutoTest you will be able to run the following new Grails script:
+
+`grails auto-test`
+
+This will start a continuously running Grails test process. Once you modify and save a file within your Grails project unit and integration tests (and as a matter of fact any kind of tests added by plugins) will be run against the new version of the changed file.
+
+This allows you to get continuous feedback on code changes without having to switch between editor and terminal.
+
+AutoTest supports Grails 1.2.x style test phases and types as well:
+
+`grails auto-test unit:`
+
+`grails auto-test :spock`
+
+Please note that while it is possible to run integration tests continuously this can bring about PermGen space OutOfMemoryErrors rather quickly so for now
+
+`grails auto-test unit:`
+
+is the recommended way of using the AutoTest plugin.
+
