Testing Rich Client Web Applications

An overview of some testing frameworks for full-featured Javascript Libraries

JavaScript Testing Presentation

Examples:

Abstract:
Making the move from sprinkling simple interactive Ajax controls into basic web applications to building feature rich clients with large JavaScript libraries brings with it some unique challenges. Among them is the need for better testing tools.

Jeff will discuss some pros and cons of a few of the more popular web application testing tools: JSUnit, HtmlUnit, and Selenium. Combinations like this provide a means to test at the unit level, the functional level, and even some means of integration testing. In addition Jeff will present Envjs as a headless option to JSUnit. Envjs is a google code project started by John Resig, of JQuery fame. It aims to provide a DOM implementation written in JavaScript. An example app written in Ext JS and Grails will provide a demo.
