Hi Evans,

thanks for the hint of jWebUnit - looks very interesting. 

There was another tool out there but I can't remember its name - it 
was a capture & replay tool creating JPhyton Scripts. It was 
mentioned somewhere in the mailing list but I don't find it at the 
moment.

Cheers,

Siegfried Goeschl
