Hey all,
I'm looking at doing some testing of a series of applications with gui front ends and back end calls (web service / db etc). Operating systems are Windows and Linux / Unix.

I'm preferably after a free software to do this but am willing to pay if I can download a demo / trial.

My list of musts are:
point and click recording that can be played back
reporting - graphs / csv etc
catering for exceptions
http calls
gui tools in multiple environments

Should / could have points:
load testing
have a limited amount of programming


Cheers!!

Hi!

Could you make your question more specific? Probably, what you need, is covered by the following type of tools:
- GUI capture/playback tool for the UI
- HTTP monitor for the Websevices
- logger API-s to log exceptions
The selection of tools heavily depends on the language/technology you use. OSS tools are cover just specific functions. Integrated test suites are priced up to $5000.

@ roos01: I tried that website, open source tools have their limitations to automate WPF based Applications.
@ mdb3624: Thank you, will have to take a look at it.
@ markpalinux: Is it for load testing? My goal is to automate GUI.
@gaboo:
The main objective is - GUI capture/playback tool for the UI
if the tool helps in testing other aspects too, that would be helpful. But, the major objective is to record user actions and play back the same.
- The major hurdles which I figured is WPF. Also our application loads heavy images in a window, and user can  pan, zoom in zoom out and apply other image related functionalities. Example: While buying shoes online: we can click on Images related to shoes to see their color, design etc...
Let me know if you get it....
-Thank You
