I like to think "old" is a good thing. I'd prefer "solid", "well
tested", "mature" :-) :-)
Anyway, based on my inbox a lot of people use SeasideTesting....or at
least try it.
I'd like to add that I've modified SeasideTesting to provide many of the
features of Selenium's in-browser testing concept. I haven't released
it yet because I'm busying using it in a new project. There are still
problems but I will put it out there (for VisualWorks only at first)
very soon now. If anyone want to have a look at it now, let me know.
That being said, ST's focus is on unit testing but I use it for
functional/integration testing as well. The new version supports
testing a "remote" application (with no direct access to the server).
What's missing is a high level way to specify functional tests. I'd
/really/ like to work with someone on something like that. The Rails
community has some cool tools like cucumber which are worth some study.
Also, have a look at Albatross as well...again, more about unit testing
but you can probably layer something on top of that to get decent
