JIFFIE is a SourceForge project that addresses web-based testing. (See http://sourceforge.net/projects/jiffie/)

There are many projects that adress this area: httpunit, htmlunit, canoo, jWebUnit. The appraoch taken by JIFFIE is radically different. It offers a set of JAVA classes that "wrap" Internet Explorer.

Using the JIFFIE classes, one takes control of Internet Explorer and issues command to it. The DOM is exposed, so you can do things that you would normally do in a client-side scripting language.

JIFFIE is very light weight, because all it does is wrasp the underlying COM components. The best thing I like about it is that it does not use httpUnit. It seemed like every time I tried a web-testing tool from SourceForge, it relied on httpUnit. While httpUnit is great, there are some aspects of functionality it cannot handle, and for project that has been a show stopper.

The approach that JIFFIE takes has a major disadvantage -- it will only work with IE. So, it is not for everyone; but, it works for me.

If you use IE and are not quite satisfied with your current web-testing library, take JIFFIE for a test drive.

We have a forum for advertising products. I am moving this there. It's called Blatent Advertising.

Sorry for posting it in the wrong place. Pardon a greenhorn.

I have nothing to do with the product, but I guess it is advertising in the sense that I am an happy user and wanted to share my experience.

Thanks Sam. I will probably go check that out. It didn't seem like blantant advertising to me. The stuff on SourceForge is free anyway right? If you were a Jiffie developer, it might have been appropriate to call it blatant promotion, but advertising? No way.

I would never come into a forum called "Blantant Advertising" on purpose except that I wanted to say thanks for the tip. Might as well call it Bit Bucket.
