What is the best way to test the JavaScript APIs. With AJAX lots of functionality now lives in the web tier. Does the book cover some approaches for the same?

Thanks

A related question would be - Are there frameworks like JUnit for Javascript testing ?

Web tier testing is covered as far as Java (or JSP) code is concerned. For testing JavaScript, including Ajax, you need to resort to another book.

As to which tools you should consider for testing your JavaScript and Ajax stuff, I'd recommend checking out Selenium, Watir, and JsUnit.
