Re: Web application acceptance testing

Have you see webunit? It's not the nicest API, but it works (I've used it at three employers now).

Sure beats raw HTTP requests...

I have looked at it before, but my natural laziness with respect to function testing kept me from using it. PBP was the first thing that really felt right. Though now I'm also thinking positively about doctest, and I can imagine webunit and doctest being a good combination (maybe also building on the XML doctest extension I talked about earlier: http://blog.ianbicking.org/xml-and-doctest.html )

I guess webunit and Mechanize have similar scopes, but I haven't really thought about how they compare.
