We have this testing automation tool from parasoft (the Junit guys). Do you have an opinion to offer on this tool? we are finding the learning curve to be too steep and time spent on solving issues with this tool negating the benefits of automating our test cases ( On an average about 20 times the time spent on running a test case is being spent on automating a test case including training and other overheads). What alternatives do we have for automation of testing process?

Thanks,
vasu

Actually, this is incorrect. JUnit was created by Erich Gamma and Kent Beck, neither of which works for Parasoft.
Now about you question... what is your definition of automated testing? Personally, I usually set up Continuous Integration for my projects and have the tests run during each builds. I usually schedule builds to run multiple times per hour. Unit tests are written using plain vanilla JUnit.

Parasoft has JTest which is an extension of JUnit and allows for automatic unt testing.

I would like to know what the author has to say about automated test cases running tools like webking.

Thanks,
Vasu

We have cooked up our own automation process in my office, based on Continuous Integration. I haven't used webking. However, I highly recommend that you automate as much of the test-running process as possible. Like many things in the open source world, you frequently spin your wheels getting everything set up just right, then it just works.
Note that you can cut down on the time it takes to write tests by using fixtures and base classes intelligently. My book shows examples of this, using JUnit.
