I'm looking for ways to automatically test a website. I'm a big fan of
the idea of daily smoke testing one's software, and websites should be
I've got a website that is entirely database-driven,
and seems (to me) like it would be a giant pain to do any amount of real testing
on it. Lord knows there are enough link checkers out
there, but we're talking about a tool that would have to
track sessions, make transactions, etc.
I've thought about rolling my own, but I'm interested in what tools
might be out there already. Any suggestions?
As an aside, the site is done in PHP, but that shouldn't affect things, because
I want all tests to go thru the web server, and the testing tool shouldn't care.
