[Webtest] Problem with opening a new window in canoo test

Marc,

Is there any plan to support HTMLUnit with WebTest?  HTMLUnit seems to
be a much cleaner implementation of how a browser interacts with a web
app, including (ostensibly) excellent javascript support.

For many teams, using HTMLUnit alone requires testers with Java
expertise, while WebTest offers a clean and less-technical solution.
Further, WebTest adds easy properties manipulation and reporting.

It would be great to see WebTest support the option of using either
HTTPUnit or HTMLUnit.  I think full Javascript support would really
catapult WebTest use on larger scale, javascript intensive applications.

Any thoughts from the group?

Thanks,
Nate

Hi Roma,

as far as I know, currently, you can't. I face the same problem with our
application.
