But that would not be a valid test - since it is eliminating one layer
(the browser).
Am I correct?

I'm kind of a newbie too and thus not the best person to answer your
question, but I know that WebTest doesn't use any browser, just the
http.  It is built on top of HTTPUnit.

I would like to use Webtest to reduce the mammoth hours our test team is
putting in. I read the White paper and the samples, however was unable
to answer a very important question: Is the data input into the Internet
Explorer browser? or is it just a http simulator? ie. I want (say) on
the login page, the username, password to be input into the IE browser
and the Submit Button pressed, not a http 'post' sent directly to the
server. Or put another way, Does Canoo use the java.awt.Robot class to
input data into the web pages? =20
