Testing Tools


Jemmy is a JavaTM library that is used to create automated tests for Java GUI applications. It contains methods to reproduce all user actions which can be performed on Swing/AWT components (i.e. button pushing, text typing, tree node expanding, ...). JemmyTest is a program written in Java which uses the Jemmy API to test applications.



soapUI is a desktop application for inspecting, invoking and testing (functional and load) of web services over HTTP. It is mainly aimed at developers/testers providing and/or consuming web services (java, .net, etc). Functional and Load-Testing can be done both interactively in soapUI or within a automated build/integration process using the soapUI command-line tools.



MActor is an extensible tool for system integration testing. It can facilitate tests of any XML-based integration regardless of the type of message transfer protocol used (HTTP, SOAP, file-system and IBM MQ series are currently supplied with the tool)



Marathon is a testing framework for GUI applications developed using Java/Swing. Marathon composes of recorder, runner and editor. The testscripts are composed of python code. Marathon focuses on end-user testing. One need not know Java or Swing to record test scripts using Marathon. Marthon is kept intentionally simple. The aim to produce test scripts that are readable by everyone on the project. This includes the developers, testers and the customers. Marathon is flexible and provides facilities to extend the functionality available through python scripts or through writing ones own component resolvers. Marathon captures the semantic actions on components instead of the mouse & keyboard events. This results in scripts that are simple and at a higher granular level. Marathon suites well for applications that mostly depend on forms-paradigm.



DbUnit is a JUnit extension (also usable with Ant) targeted for database-driven projects that, among other things, puts your database into a known state between test runs. This is an excellent way to avoid the myriad of problems that can occur when one test case corrupts the database and causes subsequent tests to fail or exacerbate the damage.



In the same way that JUnit allows us to write unit tests for Java classes, TagUnit allows us to unit test JSP custom tags, inside the container. In essence, TagUnit is a tag library for testing custom tags within JSP pages.



The Abbot framework is a Java library for GUI unit testing and functional testing. It provides methods to reproduce user actions and examine the state of GUI components. The framework may be invoked directly from Java code or accessed without programming through the use of scripts.



jfcUnit enables developers to write test cases for Java Swing based applications. It provides support for: 1. Obtaining handles on Windows/Dialogs opened by the Java code. 2. Locating components within a component hierarchy that occur within the containers found above. 3. Raising events on the found components, e.g. clicking a button, typing text in a TextComponent. 4. Handling testing of components in a thread safe manner. Since version 2.0, jfcUnit provides XML Recording and playback. This allows users to quickly and automatically generate/edit scripts to drive the testing.
