MaxQ records you using a web site. It turns the links you click on and any other input into a Python script that you can play back at any time. You might use it to:
Check that your web site still works (regression test).
Check that your web site is producing valid HTML (using JTidy).
Automatically extract information from, or take some action on, someones else's web site.
It is a free web functional testing tool. It includes an HTTP proxy that records your test script, and a command line utility that can be used to playback tests. The proxy recorder automatically stores variables posted to forms, so you don't have to write that stuff by hand.

JSystem is an open-source framework for writing and running automated software tests, for both software and embedded applications. The aim of JSystem is to provide one simple central framework for functional and system testing of software. A unique characteristic of JSystem is its simplicity and scalability: the JSystem architecture comprises of four layers, with a clear distinction between the underlying business logic of the test and the graphic user interface (GUI). The JSystem structural design affords true scalability to the testing project: as the product evolves the user can build additional tests based on the original solution - without the need to rewrite tests: a mark of a truly sustainable testing project.
Jelly is a tool for turning XML into executable code. Jelly is a Java and XML based scripting and processing engine. Jelly can be used as a more flexible and powerful front end to Ant such as in the Maven project, as a testing framework such as JellyUnit, in an intergration or workflow system such as werkflow or as a page templating system inside engines like Cocoon. Jelly is completely extendable via custom tags in a similar way to JSP custom tags or Ant tasks.
The Apache JMeter™ desktop application is an open source software, pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources (files, Servlets, Perl scripts, Java Objects, Data Bases and Queries, FTP Servers and more). It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. It can be used to make a graphical analysis of performance or to test the server/script/object behavior under heavy concurrent load.
Janova is a web-based, automated software testing tool that turns plain English business rules into tests themselves. Running tests securely in the cloud, Janova removes the need to keep disparate files and software up to date, or spend thousands of dollars to maintain cumbersome software testing equipment. Use Features, Pages and Flows to produce code-free business requirements that become automated tests, executing in the cloud at speeds of up to twenty times faster than traditional web testing tools.
NUnit is a unit-testing framework for all .Net languages. Initially ported from JUnit, this is an xUnit based unit testing tool for Microsoft .NET. It is written entirely in C# and has been completely redesigned to take advantage of many .NET language features, for example custom attributes and other reflection related capabilities. NUnit brings xUnit to all .NET languages.
The RapidRep® Test Suite is a solution for automated back-end testing. Amongst several other fields of application, it can be used to verify the functionality of programs without GUI (static and dynamic tests). Furthermore, RapidRep® can function as a “test oracle” and automatically determine target results (e.g. rule-based or model-based). When the target results are known (or have been determined) an automated target/actual-performance-comparison can take place. Contents of tables and files can be automatically tested as well, e.g. for data comparison after migrations.
QF-Test reduces compley GUIs to a few generic components which can be controlled dynamically – without any programming effort. This treatment of components in a uniform way, independent of utilized technology, means plenty of time saved for the software tester and tremendously reduces the effort involved in implementing and maintaining tests. Users of other test tools are confronted with increasingly complex toolkits these days: for example, in order to implement a tree some tools employ many different objects nested on several levels.
GUITAR software, a model-based system for automated GUI testing. This system was envisioned, designed, and originally developed by Atif Memon at the Event-Driven Software Lab. Since then many students have contributed to its design and code.
For a long time, Apple didn't provide a way to do iOS unit testing, so Google Toolbox For Mac helped fill that gap by providing all the support to write tests with SenTest just like you could for OS X. But as of Xcode 4.x, Apple has supported unit testing iOS and taken it even further than before with Xcode integration for controlling what tests are run, debugger support, etc. Google Toolbox For Mac on iOS now supports both the older Google Toolbox For Mac only way (building a App and GTM does everything) and working in parallel with Apple's support
Watir, pronounced water, is an open-source (BSD) family of Ruby libraries for automating web browsers. It allows to write tests that are easy to read and maintain. Watir drives browsers the same way people do. It clicks, links, fills in forms, presses buttons. Watir also checks results, such as whether expected text appears on the page. Watir is a family of Ruby libraries but it supports your app no matter what technology it is developed in. Whilst Watir supports only Internet Explorer on Windows, Watir-WebDriversupports Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera and also running in headless mode (HTMLUnit).
cfix is an xUnit testing framework for C/C++, specialized for unmanaged Windows development (32/64 bit). cfix supports development of both user and kernel mode unit tests.
cifx unit tests are compiled and linked into a DLL. The testrunner application provided by cfix allows selectively running tests of one or more of such test-DLLs. Execution and behaviour in case of failing testcases can be highly customized. Moreover, cfix has been designed to work well in conjunction with the Windows Debuggers (Visual Studio, WinDBG).
As of cfix 1.3, the framework is source-compatible to WinUnit, i.e. a WinUnit test suite can be recompiled into a full-fledged cfix test suite.
SmartTester automates the creation of unit and component test harnesses, test stubs and test drivers. Inunit testing, SmartTester stubs all the function calls made by the unit under test. In component testing,it links the actual functions to its calls. With minimal clicks, you can analyze code coverage and visualize the behavior of your program. Detailed test and run-time coverage analysis reports are generated. SmartTester allows coverage analysis to be performed for all software levels as defined by DO-178B.
Almost all GUI testing efforts are plagued by problems with making sure the script waits long enough before proceeding when something happens in the background. The solutions range from arcane ways to wait for some widget to have a certain appearance (yet more dependencies on GUI-mechanics) to "sleep" statements liberally scattered around. Which fail when the system is loaded and cause the tests to run much more slowly than they otherwise would. Anyone without intimate knowledge of the code is ill-equipped to solve such problems, yet doing so is a vital part of writing tests.
AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required!
