HtmlUnit 2.2 Released

The HtmlUnit team is pleased to announce the release 2.2 of HtmlUnit.

HtmlUnit is a 100% java “browser for java programs” that can be used for different purposes like web testing or scraping. It is lightweight and extraordinary fast. Its JavaScript processing capabilities are not yet perfect but already good enough to work correctly with numerous complex AJAX libraries like for instance GWT. It can be used directly or through other open source sofwares like WebTest, WebDriver, JSFUnit, or more recently the JRuby Celerity.
This release contains numerous improvements and bug fixes, particularly in handling of ill formed HTML code and in AJAX support as well as noticeable speed gains making it even faster in different situations.



Yet Another JRuby Wrapper for HtmlUnit: schnell

After Celerity, a new open source JRuby library, schnell, uses HtmlUnit to provide a fast Watir-like API for functional testing of web applications. According to the announcement, it runs… 37,5 times faster than Watir!
