Does this book address testing GUI apps or Web apps?

I would have thought that unit testing will include testing any units of the program be it server side component or an gui.

Web stuff - saw lots of it mentioned in his TOC.
Thick GUI stuff - I didn't see him mention JFCUnit in his table of contents, but that's the JUnit extension that is most often mentioned for GUI unit testing.

Yes for web apps. No for GUI apps.

"Unit Testing in Java" by Johannes Link has a chapter on unit testing Swing GUIs, as far as I know.
