in reply to [OT] Java equivalent of WWW::Mechanize?

I suggest you try out Canoo's WebTest. It offers also a high-level interface (as WWW::Mechanize) and uses http-unit for the actual tests (like WWW::Mechanize uses lwp).
It has very good reporting features and there is also a proxy for recording (like HTTP::Recorder).

I installed it last year and i'am pretty happy with it. I use it for automatic testing of dynamic web-sites. xpath is really great! but i wan't to switch to HTTP::Recorder/WWW::Mechanize because it's a pure perl solution.

    Very interesting link, but not really what I'm looking for in this project. As far as I can see interaction is specified using XML files rather than an API. The purpose is to communicate with a webserver and manipulate the information that is returned from within a Java program (this is just part of a larger program).

    Thanks, -gjb-
