in reply to General web application testing advice sought.

If you can, take a look at Selenium. It's phenomenal and the guys who run it are easy to work with.


My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    I second that recommendation. Hell, the IDE will even go generate the Perl for you :-)

    Holy crap that's hot. You know, I don't know what's wrong with me. I've seen Selenium mentioned before, here and other places, and for some reason I just assumed it wouldn't run on my stuff or it was Windows or a lot of trouble or a partial solution or... I never checked it out till now. Stupid, stupid me. Selenium is easily the best thing I've seen in two years. This plus Firebug means dynamic web dev work has lost about 95% of its voodoo.

      Have you checked out Test::WWW::Selenium? :-)
