RSpec, Capybara, and some other Ruby on Rails libs.

But the book isn't really about any particular. It's more about what to test.
What kinds of tests are there ?
When should we use one over the other ?
What are some of the trade-offs that come with testing ?
When should I automate? When shouldn't i?
What are anti-patterns to avoid.

How can I feel good about the tests I've written.

So it's not really a good book for RSpec or any other kind of tool out there.
But if you are looking for more tips on what tests are out there and when you should use them, it may be the book you are looking for.

Cheers - Jonathan

Thanks Jonathan .

I'm a java programmer . I use JUnit and Spring tools but am interested in leaning more about integration  testing and testing the scalability of web sites.

thanks,
Paul
