Acceptance testing AJAX applications

Here is a summary of one of the sessions at the next AjaxWorld event in a couple of days time by David Hover who is author of the upcoming 'Acceptance Testing Rails' shortcut from Addison Wesley.

"When you need to test things that are not covered by the Rails testing framework (i.e. end-to-end AJAX), open source web testing toolkits are your best friend. While Selenium has merit and is particularly well-suited for cross-browser compatibility tests, this session will focus on putting Watir on Rails. Watir provides a clean API, simple setup, good integration into the Rails testing framework, and is supported in a growing number of browsers. Dave will demonstrate how to use Watir to test a Rails+AJAX application."
