Login with Basic Authentication using Groovy

Hey there fellow Groovyists! I was recently in need of performing Basic Authentication on Apache using Groovy for a proof of concept. Below is what I was able to quickly put together.

//Here is a quick groovy 1.7.4 Basic Auth Example
@Grab(group=’org.codehaus.groovy.modules.http-builder’, module=’http-builder’, version=’0.5.0′ )

def authSite = new groovyx.net.http.HTTPBuilder( ‘http://10.110.201.115/~juanvazquez/basicAuth/’ )
authSite.auth.basic ‘user’, ‘pwd’
println authSite.get( path:’testAuth.html’ )
