JSFUnit

Introduction

JSFUnit is a test framework for JSF applications. It is designed to allow complete integration testing and unit testing of JSF applications using a simplified API. JSFUnit tests run inside the container, which provides the developer full access to managed beans, the FacesContext, EL Expressions, and the internal JSF component tree. It also provides access to parsed HTML output of each client request. After each faces request, you get access to the full internal state of your application through the FacesContext. With the FacesContext in hand, you have the keys to the kingdom. Between the JSF API and the JSFUnit helper classes, you can see what "really happened" after each request.

JWebUnit

Introduction

JWebUnit is a Java framework that facilitates creation of acceptance tests for web applications. It evolved from a project where we were using HttpUnit and JUnit to create acceptance tests. As the tests were being written, they were continuously refactored to remove duplication and other bad smells in the test code. JWebUnit is the result of these refactorings. It wraps existing testing frameworks such as HtmlUnit and Selenium with a unified, simple testing interface to allow you to quickly test the correctness of your web applications.

Gtest-gbar

Introduction

Google Test is an excellent xUnit style c++ unit testing framework. One (minor) drawback of Google Test is it's text based UI.This project is a standalone .Net 2.0 executable which displays a UI for a Google Test based harness with the following elements:

  1. A progress bar which is either green or red, according to test success
  2. A list of all failures and their details upon click

The UI saves a history of several runs (configurable), allows command line parameters to be passed to the test program and gives convenient access to the following google test features:

  • filtering tests
  • forcing execution of disabled tests
  • shuffling tests

The project is written in C# and runs on Windows and Linux (under mono)

Smart Testers List of Testing Tools - Part 2

This is the second part of Amit's tools he was experiencing during his work. This great list shows tools that can help any tester to succeed in his/hers quest.
Good tester is the one that know, not only to activate the testing machine or application, also has strong ability to know and learn how to use wide range of tools that will help him/her to analyze the SUT and summarize in the correct manner.
After going through the tools in this list, QA doesn't seem so simple any more.

Thank you Amit for great information.
