Automating Web Testing, JCP versus OSSby chromatic
ONJava Newsletter for 05/08/2003
Greetings from overcast Sebastopol, California, home of the O'Reilly Network. Java One's coming, and you can't go a couple of hours without hearing about it among the staff here. That's the future though. Now to the present....
One of the worst-kept secrets in software development is how easy automated tests can make your development life. Of course, too few people know how to write those tests. Giora Katz-Lichtenstein is working to improve the situation. His Black Box Web Testing with HttpUnit demonstrates how to use a Java-based web automation project to test web sites written in any language you can imagine. Improve your accuracy, reduce regressions, and measure your level of service!
Weblog-wise, Steve Anglin points out what purports to be J2EE and .NET Interoperability. Chris Adamson gives the IBM Java MPEG-4 Tools a test drive. Finally, Timothy Appnel asks if the JCP is better than Open Source.
