Hi,

I'm new to Ruby. Does anyone know how to use Ruby to write an Http test client?

What I want is, I want a test script which can automatically fill in the form variables on my web site and do tests automatically. Is Ruby capable of doing that?

Thanks!
J.

Sure. Rather than develop your own, though, you might want to consider an existing framework such as WATIR.
