Aaah, thanks! I thought that Albatross-al.215 was an old version, and
I was just about to try to merge that... :-)
So, for everyone else who's reading - in the current version of
Albatross you can:
1) get the component under test using ATestCase>>getTestComponent. The
component then might give you the model, as in
"We edited a pier page through the web browser, check if the
model changed accordingly."
page := self getTestComponent context structure.
"page is a PRPage (model object), check its title and contents"
self assert: page title = 'Hello world!'.
self assert: page contents = 'This is the first Albatross Pier test
in the world!'
2) get the current URL using ABrowser>>url
3) get the title of the HTML page using ABrowser>>title
