I went to a seminar with agile development guru Robert Martin today, and one of the things he talked about was automated acceptance tests. He briefly showed a URL to the Fitnesse acceptance test framework by Ward Cunningham, and after reading their introduction and running(!) their examples my reaction was: Oooh! Shiny! Me want for Perl!
Fitnesse is a wiki built atop Fit, which creates test cases from HTML input. The wiki interface allows non-technical users to edit these input/output tables, and by interspersing these tables with a descriptive story (in XP/agile parlance) you get an executable requirements specification. Written by the user. Sounds like Utopia.
So I google for a Perl implementation, and end up with one in Python. Have I missed something? If not, I seem to have found myself an itch, perhaps this time I will finally get around to writing some CPAN code myself.
edit: Shoddy googling on my part, sorry. in addition to dragonchild's link, I will dig into Brian Ingerson's Test::FIT
Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.
