Web App Testing

While looking for a way to automate testing for the application I’m working on, I was amused to learn that, even for PHP applications, the standard for automated testing still seems to be Perl’s (and the Apache standard) Apache::Test module. I’m sure a lot of this is because of the browser-based mindset of PHP,  This combined with OO-heavy testing frameworks that show their Java roots make Apache::Test pretty attractive for lightweight automated testing. I’ve managed to combine it with Debian’s pbuilder for some great automated testing in a pristine environment.  Beautiful.
