my knowledge is vague and dated, but maybe it is enough to get you
going, and maybe others can chime in to fill the gaps I've left.

I have been reading material in the book 'Qooxdoo Beginner's Guide' for GUI
automated testing and it mentions downloading v1.4.1 , Mozilla Rhino, and
Selenium RC server to set up using 'simulator' for your Qooxdoo test code.
I realize this info is outdated (from 2010) and I currently am running
1). What in your opinion is the best way to integrate GUI
testing with Qooxdoo web applications? Does this method provide a
recognizes all user interface elements built using Qooxdoo so I can
incorporate them easily into the test code?
You are right, Selenium has evolved and the current technology is
called Selenium Webdriver, which marks a complete new approach
compared to Selenium RC. Still, I think Selenium Webdrive is your
best bet when it comes to automating tests of browser applications
(at least if you look for free tools), so I would recommend you to
looking into that. qooxdoo's own test suite used to use it.

2.) There are also some old posts on using selenium and
made (again 2010). If this is the best path to take, please
point me to up-to-date instructions on the tools I need to download and how
to set-up for GUI automated testing.
Significant work has been done to re-create qooxdoo's automatic
framework testing with Selenium Webdriver. IIRC the main challenge
here is to provide good selector support for the Webdriver platform,
so test code can interact with a qooxdoo application comfortably and
I don't know the current state of affairs, and I cannot offer step-
by-step instructions on how to use it, but a good starting point
seems to be this repository
It used to be the basis of qooxdoo's internal GUI tests. This repo
also contains a usage example, a Getting Started tutorial, and has
its own test suite to look at. I have never worked with this platform
myself so I cannot comment further, but I think tests will have to be
written in Java, or at least a JVM language like Groovy or Clojure.
comes with Java 8, but again, that's just guessing and I cannot speak
from experience. But I think Daniel has done a good job of making the
whole thing accessible.
If and how this platform still hooks into the 'simulator'
infrastructure we once used (and which used to be available in
qooxdoo SDK projects through the Generator) is beyond me.
