Testing JEE application

Hi,

I am presently using junit to test my POJO classes. I wanted to know which are the best ways to test other components of a JEE application like servlets, jsp, ejb. Also are there any other frameworks which are used to test a web app?

I was not sure in which forum to submit this question , so I am sorry if this is the wrong place.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks

Andy,
We actually have a forum just for testing questions. I'll move this for you. It'll be easy to find as the original location will link to the new one for you.

Yes - they extend JUnit. You need to decide whether you want to test from a real web browser. If so, Selenium Remote Control lets you write programmatic tests that will run in your real browser. If not, a library like jWebUnit can provide a "pretend" browser. You could also use a library like Canoo or Cactus.

I think the most important thing to do is make sure you decouple your logic from the web parts so you can test it independently (and faster.)

Thank you for the response.
I think I want to test from a real web browser, so I guess I will start with Selenium Remote Control.

Thanks
