That's correct... currently webunit has full support for MS IE and plans
on supporting other browsers in the future.  From a Windows/IE
perspective it's very mature and works great... we are currently using
webunit to automate all of our acceptance tests.  What we like about
Canoo WebTest is the scripting front-end, so rather than writing java
code to script our tests we would like to use webtest.  And yes you
would need to run the tool on Windows in order to interact with IE.
This is not an issue for us though - our auto-build simply makes a call
to a windows box to execute our test suite and collect the results.

All,

At this point the project only supports MS I.E. Am I missing something?
Also in it's support of IE it requires access to COM which generally
mean Windows (Unless your doing some sort of COM bridge) and at this
point Webtest doesn't have a Windows platform requirement. I am not sure
that is a direction others want to go. Plus has WebUnit solved the API
problem for Mozilla and other browsers? How would it script the browser
actions? Does Mozilla have an API that allows scripting? Sounds to me
like WebUnit is not mature enough yet to invest in? Other thoughts?

	Hadn't heard back from anyone on this.... a webtest frontend to
webunit would be really nice... interacting directly with Internet
Explorer, Mozilla, others would immediately add full javascript support.
Here is a link to webunit for more info:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/webunitproj/

	Hello there...

	=20

	I read in the archives that a new version of Canoo WebTest is
being created that talks to WebUnit (instead of HttpUnit).  What is the
status on this?  We are really looking forward to using this new
version.  The actual archived message can be found here...
