En Effective Tester for Java Beans

I would like to find an effective way to test the JavaBeans I create.

I tried to download Sun's Java BeanBuilder, but the webstart on the BeanBuilder page is not working.

I downloaded the and unpacked the zip file for the BeanBuildr, but when I executed the builder.jar file I got the "Main Class Not Found" error.

Any idea what I need to do to install the BeanBuilder myself?

Is there another opensource JavaBean Tester/Editor I should be looking at?

Thanks,

Landon

What do you want to test?

I would like to build my beans for others to use, primarily, and I want to make sure they work as JavaBeans. It would also be nice to paste some of my beans together into an apllication to check their functionality as a group.

You could use junit to write tests to make sure the beans do what they are supposed to.
