Testing Tools


TESTARE is a testing framework that aims to simplify the test development process for distributed enterprise JAVA applications. It tries to achieve this goal by focusing on two main directions:

 * provide straightforward and easy to use "in container" testing capabilities
 * provide native support for test environment management and introspection techniques such as fixtures, global fixtures, probes and guards Its initial focus is on "in ejb container" testing but its extensible architecture makes it very easy to develop support for other execution environments such as SERVLETS, JMS listeners, CORBA ORBs or RMI.



Salome-TMF is a test management framework. Salome-TMF offers features for creating and executing tests. Salome-TMF uses the concept of tests defined in the norm ISO9646. Tests can be manual or automatic, tests are organized in campaigns and are executed with different datasets in different environments. For making test execution fully automatic, Salome-TMF has integrated a script language based on Java, as one of several plugins which extend Salome-TMF functionalities.



In the same way that JUnit allows us to write unit tests for Java classes, TagUnit allows us to unit test JSP custom tags, inside the container. In essence, TagUnit is a tag library for testing custom tags within JSP pages.



TestNG is a testing framework inspired from JUnit and NUnit but introducing some new functionalities that make it more powerful and easier to use, such as: - JSR 175 Annotations (JDK 1.4 is also supported with JavaDoc annotations). - Flexible test configuration. - Default JDK functions for runtime and logging (no dependencies). - Powerful execution model (no more TestSuite). - Supports dependent methods.



SWTBot is an open-source Java based functional testing tool for testing SWT and Eclipse based applications. SWTBot provides APIs that are simple to read and write. The APIs also hide the complexities involved with SWT and Eclipse. This makes it suitable for functional testing by everyone. SWTBot also provides its own set of assertions that are useful for SWT. You can also use your own assertion framework with SWTBot. SWTBot has a driver and recorder to playback and record tests and integrates with Eclipse, and also provides for ant tasks so that you can run your builds from within CruiseControl or any other CI tool that you use. SWTBot can run on all platforms that SWT runs on. Very few other testing tools provide such a wide variety of platforms.



UISpec4J is an Open Source functional and/or unit testing framework for Swing-based Java applications, built on top of the JUnit test harness. What makes it special is that its APIs are designed to ease the testing process by making the test scripts as close possible to human-readable text.



T2 is a random testing tool. As one, it is fully automatic, but one must keep in mind that the code coverage of random testing is in general very limited. It should be used as a complement to other testing methods. T2 checks for internal errors, run time exceptions, method specifications, and class invariant. T2 does not check individual methods in isolation; instead T2 generates random executions where methods may interfere with each other, and thus it may discover more subtle errors. Violating executions can be saved for re-test (regression). No special specification language is needed. Specifications are written in plain Java. The current state is prototype.



The Abbot framework is a Java library for GUI unit testing and functional testing. It provides methods to reproduce user actions and examine the state of GUI components. The framework may be invoked directly from Java code or accessed without programming through the use of scripts.
