You could start by taking a look at Selenium, Watir and/or jWebUnit.

In addition to those mentioned, try the 'junit in action' book. It is great. I am a beginner and it definitely immersed me into junit.

The book is okay for beginners in testing java. It includes testing regular classes, jsp, servlet, jsp taglibs, ejb, database.

Since it came out 2004, maybe that is the reason why there is no mention on testing web services.

Thanks Lasse and Jesus for your replies.

Is these used for unit testing ? I am beginner in testing and would like to get into testing/QA field. Usually testers do the unit testing ? Or the developers ? Most oppotunities want scripting experience. What do they usually mean by that ?

Many Thanks,
Joe.

Developers do the unit testing. QA does the end-to-end/functional/user acceptance testing. (Developers do some of this to, but it is QA's job to certify the product.)

When they ask for scripting experience, they usually mean a playback record tool's scripting language. You can search for QA on a job listings site to see which ones are most common and the present time.
