How to find all XML elements by tag name in Groovy?

How I can find all elements in XML by their tag name in Groovy (GPath)?

I need to find all

car
elements in this document:

<records>
<first>
<car>
<id>378932</id>
</car>
</first>
<second>
<foo>
<car>
<name>audi</name>
</car>
</foo>
</second>
</records>


This is what I tried and failed:

def xml = new XmlSlurper().parse(file)
assert xml.car.size() == 2

Answer

This is how it works:

def xml = new XmlSlurper().parse(file)
def cars = xml.depthFirst().findAll { it.name() == 'car' }
assert cars.size() == 2
