Can someone post his opinion about JunitEE ?
I want to test my work based on struts 1.3 meaning I want to test the UI with its error-handling messages (based on incorrect inputs) and the EJB parts (based on reading and writing from DataBase)...

My personal preference is to test EJBs thru external (remote) calls and the web through a browser based tool like Selenium. (And of course, everything through unit tests.)

JUnitEE is somewhere in between these two and doesn't meet a need I have.

Thanks for your answer ...

I looked for Selenium and it really and it seems O.K although it does NOT support explorer 7 (?) yet.

My question is : what do you mean by "to test EJBs thru external (remote) calls"..? can you give me a simple example or direct me to a URL ?

You could also take a look at the online extra of my book. It's a whole book chapter on writing tests for EJB components.
