[Webtest] other web testing tools

Wow. That's tough: an audit on Good Friday!
I think it's great to have so many different web testing tools, too. It
enables everyone to find the tool that fits his needs, depending on what he
wants to test, how he wants to describe the tests, and how he wants to run
Every tool has intricacies and constraints and in my opinion the important
thing about it is what can be done against them: in webtest, one can browse
the source-code, read the docs, study the examples, execute the selftests,
etc. This should give a pretty good picture of how webtest works and how it
can be used. Many constraints can be tackled through your own webtest
extensions (e.g. custom steps) which are very easy to write and which
integrate well into the framework.
I dont't have a bucket for you. If you need one, perhaps, webtest is the
wrong tool for your needs.

P.S. The name of the testing tool is 'webtest'. 'Canoo' is the name of the

Subject: [Webtest] other web testing tools
Hello out there,
I hope you Canoo guys don't take offense to this question, because I
think Canoo is great, but it doesn't seem to be matching my needs. I went
to Google and searched for webtesting tools and was completely overwhelmed,
so I figured I might broach the subject here:
Can anyone enlighten me on other webtesting tools they have used and your
opinion on them?
I was hired to create Canoo scripts, but I don't think the IS managers
realized the intricacies and constraints of Canoo and I have an audit
tomorrow and along with my excuses on why I haven't met project deadlines I
would really like to offer up another solution.
So it looks like my canoo is filling with water, ready to sink. Does
anyone have a bucket?
