About FunkLoad:

FunkLoad is a open source functional and load web tester, written in Python, whose main use cases are functional and regression testing of web projects, performance testing by loading the web application and monitoring your servers, load testing to expose bugs that do not surface in cursory testing, and stress testing to overwhelm the web application resources and test the application recoverability, and writing web agents by scripting any web repetitive task, like checking if a site is alive.

AutAT – Eclipse plug-in for automatic acceptance testing web applications

11.09.2005 · Posted in Links

AutAT provides test-driven development of web applications. By using a graphical editor you design the pages, page transitions, and specify the behavior. This can be done prior to implementing the web application. The tests are easy to read and understand as they simply reflect the structure of the web application, the web pages and the flows between pages.

Test execution is carried out by a test engine. Currently AutAT supports Canoo WebTest and FitNesse/jWebFit. Canoo WebTest is used to execute tests directly from the eclipse plug-in. You can also export the tests to be used in a continuous build environment.

TESTARE: distributed Java app testing framework

11.05.2005 · Posted in Links

TESTARE is a testing framework that aims to simplify the test development process for distributed enterprise JAVA applications. It tries to achieve this by providing straightforward and easy to use "in-container" testing capabilities through the concept of execution scenarios, and providing native support for test environment management and introspection techniques such as fixtures, global fixtures, probes and guards. Its initial focus is on "in ejb container" testing but its extensible architecture intended to make it very easy to develop support for other execution environments such as servlets, JMS listeners, CORBA ORBs or RMI.
