first thing to say here is that i t's a great thing, what the apache
foundation does !
After this compliment, i want to know if there is a posibility to automate
the testing phase of
a web based application. Here is what I wan't to do
A test application reads a file with URL's These URL's contains parameter
wich the servlets need to
create an respons. The URL's must be send to the web-server with Tomcat. In
the Servlet there is
for test purposes a facility to send cookies back with the response.
Is there a program which can automatically transmit several requests with a
time delay in URL format to a given Server.
The response will be analysed by hand.
The "Watchdog" test suite (package "jakarta-watchdog" on the Jakarta web site)
contains compatibility tests that can be used to test the spec conformance of a
servlet or JSP engine. It uses an automated test harness that does a lot of
the things you describe. The basic idea is that you write client code chunks
that submit a request, and then inspect the response. The harness has tools
for automatically comparing responses with the desired values. You might find
this a useful basis for your work.
