Testing Servlet (like the Firefox's poster)

Hello all,
I've just started working on a very new project that consists as the entry points for the clients web application with servlets.
The data that is transferred is XML and I added a filter that set it (a long with other things).

In order to check that things work, I added to Firefox the Poster plugin. With it, I am putting the correct XML, press POST and see that the correct XML is in the response.

Is there a way of doing so by programming (say I want to add JUnit that does it).
HTTPClient / HTTPPost , others. ?

Hi Eyal,

Did you try HtmlUnit or HttpUnit the latter
worked fine for me in one of my projects.

Hi Gian,
I know about these tools.
Haven't tried them yet.
It look like HttpUnit is the one I need.
