Framework Integrated Testing? Bah, i can't remember what it stands for but basically there's 3 types of testing you can do in software: Unit Testing, GUI-less UAT, and GUI based UAT scripting. (in the order of least to most expensive to maintain and utilize).
I find it ironic that most software companies try to script the UI with web apps, maybe because it's fairly cheap in comparison to scripting the UI on windows based apps? I don't know
Anyhow, i was going to talk about Fitnesse... i set off to learn about it since the the guys over at PCG who go to AgileKC meetings said it was useful.
Basically, think of fitnesse like a wiki that you can enter in data grids for tests right into the page. Then you can execute the tests right there on the page. Ideally if you had a release going you could get one page for the whole release, hit test 1 time and see right away if anything was broken.
Some people squirm when you say you're going to test without the UI... what exactly are you testing then?
Again, the guys over at PCG make a great point and say, "It's no alternative to your Wattin(?) or your Mercury scripts on the UI, however some of your checkpoint tests could be done in FIT instead, and the GUI based scripts are more of a smoke test to verify the pages load.
Cory Foy writes great tutorials on how to setup fitnesse and fit on your machine and here's links to the downloads:
