Anteater is a testing framework designed around Ant, from the Apache Jakarta Project. It provides an easy way to write tests for checking the functionality of a Web application or of an XML Web service. It can test either HTTP requests or replies in various sophisticated ways. The ability to wait for incoming HTTP messages is unique to Anteater, which makes it especially useful when building tests for applications that use high level SOAP-based communication and asynchronous SOAP messages. Anteater provides XML and text logging support and the ability to render the logs into HTML reports.
