We want to rely on standard formats. Based on these experiences it was decided to broaden the usage of WebTest in CSPB, on the one hand to more applications, on the other hand to more test levels. Is the state of canoo test database rolled back? Operations Risk Can we put our application into production safely?

Manual Overview

The target fetchDependencies of the build script looks at the required dependencies, looks at maven’s dependency cache in the user’s home directory and downloads the dependency jar files from one of the maven repositories to the shared dependency cache. A full and pedantic validation is outside the scope of Canoo WebTest, but every validation step calls the Neko Html parser part of HtmlUnit and will warn you on improper html.

Committers’ blogs Denis N. Your Webapp displays an html table that is filled with data from the database. Now WebTest is used for business critical functions with several thousand users. The effect is tremendous: We don’t want to learn a new language for the test automation. Tests must give a thumps up indication when successful and a detailed error indication otherwise. Note that this is very convenient for nightly builds and even for use with a continuous integration platform like CruiseControl.

The easiest solution is to take advantage of maven’s various plugins to convert webtest’s pom. You can also group tests into a testsuite that again can be part of a bigger testsuite.

Testing is an important part of any serious development effort.

Bad experience made us suspicious about the correctness of any external documentation. This opens another opportunity: They get reported by our users. Canoo WebTest helps you to reduce the defect rate of your web application. We want to make sure that their feedback does not get lost, that the defect really gets solved, that it never appears again in future releases. Committers’ blogs Denis N. The best solution is to write an automated test that exposes the bug. Do you think that the above example is so easy that you do not need an automatic test for this?


These failures must be manually processed to separate the “real” failures from the “false negatives”.

This is quite a number of scenarios to be ewbtest. We have to read a lot of documentation every day. The samples that come with Canoo WebTest show how to do this.

We call this a use case or a scenario.

There is a lot more to say about unit testing. First WebTest screencast available: We don’t really like writing documentation ourselves because we know that it is only a matter of time until it is out of sync with the system and all our effort will be wasted.
