On our latest project, My colleague Tjeerd Kaastra and I, have been using Wicket.
Since our GUI was so complex, and we had to write 100s of unit tests (a lot of corner cases), we sat down with our testers to find out how we should approach this. Because Our testers use Fitnesse to test both functional acceptance as well as regression tests, they test a lot of the code as well. So we thought, why not integrate the two and that is what we did.
This blog describes how to test Wicket applications using Fitnesse. It is about stretching the limits of the Wicket test components to do so. We will try to explain this by using a small example project we have created to illustrate things. This example project has been inspired on the new user wizard example by Eelco Hillenius. We adapted this example so that it uses Spring, because most apps use a backend system.
