I'm using rails with jruby for my applications but until now I never used tests.
Now I want start to integrate tests during my applications development.
Do you suggest some suites or frameworks to automate and facilitate tests?
I've heard of selenium http://seleniumhq.org.
What do you think about?
Basically there’s two to three tiers of tests you’d want to look into:
unit tests: testing models on a microlevel, making sure that your models behave and will keep behaving as you intend them to. Personally I prefer RSpec for these tests, the syntax feels natural to me. However, you could also use Test::Unit with Shoulda. There’s probably some other options available, but these two are going to be the most popular ones.
performance tests: here you will tests the performance of your Rails app. Personally I’ve never needed to use them, so maybe someone will chime in here on what solutions are available.
Peepcode.com has some really nice screencasts available on testing.
