Non Website Testing Tools

Recently I presented to UUASC on website testing tools. My slide deck can be found online here.

Some members asked about non website testing tools. I did some research into the matter and discovered quite a few.

The one stop shop for all your open source software testing wants is http://www.opensourcetesting.org

All sorts of good stuff there.

For some particular needs I have had lately, I have found a few software packages of great interest:

Linux Test Project

Those are oriented towards end to end system testing. A handful of other projects exist which focus on testing specific areas such as database, network performance etc.

I'll be looking at testing tools in much more detail in the 3rd quarter of this year. I currently have a bookmark dump on del.icio.us of several testing packages which are of interest to me.
