MaxQ records you using a web site.
It turns the links you click on and any other input into a Python script
that you can play back at any time.
You might use it to:
- Check that your web site still works (regression test).
- Check that your web site is producing valid HTML (using
- Automatically extract information from, or take some action on,
someones else's web site.
How it Works
Key Benefits and Features
- Free and open source (see the
- Scripts are written in Jython,
an implementation of Python.
Python scripts are easy to understand, modify and extend.
- Alternatively, the captured HTTP sessions may be saved as XML files, according to ISAC
format, for (massive) replay with CLIF load testing platform
(see clif.objectweb.org for details).
- Works from the command line so you can run scripts unattended.
- Understands cookies.
- Written in Java so it runs anywhere.
- Easy to enhance because the source code is simple.
- Scripts can run as JUnit tests.
- Works behind proxy servers.
- Simplicity. MaxQ should be easy to understand and use, provided the
user has a basic understanding of programming concepts. The tool
should operate under the 'principle of least surprise'.
- Practicality. QA engineers must actually be able to use the tool to
test real web sites.
If you are having trouble using MaxQ then you should read the
