Hi All

Can anyone tell me which framework would be the best for automating API testing? I need to develop such an Automation for our project.
Once the system is properly configured, most of our test cases involve reading values (getters), and verifying it whether expected values are present in the output.
I'm looking forward to write Jython scripts which might or might not use JUnit. Is it a good idea?
What else can I use?

Kindly let me know ASAP. And apologies, if the same has been discussed previously.

Sure, that would be fine. (Personally if I was going to bother using something other than Java I might use a more popular JVM language, but perhaps now that Jython development is back on track it'll come back.)

Thanks a lot David!
Now that you have mentioned 'more popular JVM language' , which would have you used?
Since I have to learn Jython from the scratch, I'd like to explore all possible options before just delving into it.
Thank you again!

Groovy and JRuby are both more popular (at the moment).
