I'm developing a web services based application. I'm using JUnit for testing components. We need to test it with different types of data, so it's loaded from an external source to do it better and faster.
Now I have a problem. After building and deploying my app, I need to keep on testing it. I need to run some sort of test suite (it could be the junit test cases) periodically from outside the ear. I can't use maven because the app is already build and i don't want to re-build it. Is there any framework for this specific test? maybe i could add a class with a main method that calls my JUnit classes like maven does, but i would like to know if there already is an open source tool that suits for this problem (i don't want to reinvent the wheel)
Ideally, you need an automated test harness which will read the data files, build the requests and submit them via the web service. I don't know of any open source for this, in our department we hand-built our test harnesses.
