Application Integration Tests

Author:Matt Albrecht

For the series of articles on this site that concern testing levels, I use the term system tests to refer to those tests that verify that the whole application works as planned, and that outside forces do not cause unexpected errors. One particular subset of system tests are Application Integration Tests, which I term to mean completely automated system tests.

System level tests generally require much more interaction with the native platform than integration unit tests or unit tests. As such, it makes sense to implement this logic in a scriptable language, rather than Java. Personally, I choose Ant, since it is a Java native tool and has good cross-platform capabilities.
