Hi,
 
Is anyone using webtest with xml and xsl to populate a system w/ test data?
 
Our qa people have expressed interest in automatic scripts to populate our
system w/ some basic data.. I'd like to use webtest for this as the data
will be ultimately easier to maintain.
 
I had made a pass at it earlier and it worked fine, though the xsl might
seem difficult to maintain...(I recall there was a problem generating ant
properties ${foo.bar} in the xsl).... I was curious if anyone is
(successfully) using webtest in this regard?
 
I welcome any comments (even "dumb idea. write an sql script".)  some
feedback is better than none.
