If you are looking to automate tests of web-based applications, you might have a look at the HTTP::Monkeywrench (Mw). Mw lets you simulate a set of "clicks" around a website, passing parameters to forms, testing the output against regular expressions, etc. Written by the good folks at cnation. I have just released a beta module called HTTP::TestEngine to sourceforge that provides a macro recorder utility for Mw. Basically you can just click around your site, and TestEngine will record your clicks, the parameters you submit etc. You can then write a Mw script to "playback" your session. Requires mod_perl and a couple of modules from CPAN. -Chris Brooks
