[Seaside] Testing a seaside task and component?

Hi Alex,

What exactly do you want to test by executing ‘go’ on the task?

There is the SeasideTesting project that allows to ‘unit test’ components but I am no longer maintaining that one in favour of Parasol.
I think it will even not load anymore in Pharo 4.

Now, you can ‘unit test’ components by making sure some dynamic variables are present when running the test (e.g. request, session, …).
That’s how we converted a bunch of tests written using SeasideTesting to regular unit tests, though I would not recommend that approach when you start writing tests.
