No, I know Selenium and JMeter do not use commercial license, they are Open source. I think from the above list, anything with .org in domain name are Open Source and free.

Hi,

My web app has Multiple frames in a page.
Please suggest me any tool that works with the frames.

Many thanks,

Since Selenium is the current topic... the organization I work for has found an issue using selenium in cases where javascript opens new windows. The issue centers around the ability to gain focus of the window, or to return focus back to the parent window. Here is an example on Stack Overflow

And this blog suggests that while Selenium itself may have some issues with popups, Selenium RC handles them better.

Anyone having issues with Selenium and popups?

It will be better if you open another thread rather than adding to one with a completely different subject!
