	I'm a newbie so i am sure other people can answer this question
more intelligently. however, to put it simply, it does not "input data
into the a browser". the tool is based on HttpUnit which I guess can be
described as a http simulator.=20
	=20
	there is an open source tool called "Enterprise Web Test" that
sounded like what you have in mind.=20
	http://sourceforge.net/projects/webunitproj/
	=20
	is there anyone who tried using Solex plug-in for Eclipse? (I am
happy with and sticking to Canoo but am curious) The fact it would write
the XML from sessions makes it tempting after writing many many many
test scripts.

	Hello,
	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
	thanks,
	Anil Philip
