WebTau (short for web test automation) is a testing API, command line tool and a framework to write unit, integration and end-to-end tests. Test across REST-API, GraphQL, Browser, Database, CLI and Business Logic with consistent set of matchers and concepts. REPL mode speeds-up tests development. Rich reporting cuts down investigation time.

WebTau (Web Test automation) - concise and expressive way to write end-to-end and unit tests.

Test your application across multiple layers:

  • REST API (including Data Coverage)
  • GraphQL API
  • Web UI
  • CLI
  • Database
  • Business Logic (JVM only)

REST test Java example:

public class WeatherJavaTest {
    @Test
    public void checkWeather() {
        http.get("/weather", (header, body) -> {
            body.get("temperature").shouldBe(lessThan(100));
        });
    }
}

server response

{
  "temperature": 88
}

REST test Groovy example:

scenario("check weather") {
    http.get("/weather") {
        temperature.shouldBe < 100
    }
}

Use Persona Concept to streamline Authorization testing

scenario("my bank balance") {
    Alice {
        http.get("/statement") {
            balance.shouldBe > 100
        }
    }

    Bob {
        http.get("/statement") {
            balance.shouldBe < 50
        }
    }
}

Alice server response

{
  "balance": 150
}

Bob server response

{
  "balance": 30
}
public class PersonaHttpJavaTest {
    @Test
    public void checkBalance() {
        Alice.execute(() -> http.get("/statement", (header, body) -> {
            body.get("balance").shouldBe(greaterThan(100));
        }));

        Bob.execute(() -> http.get("/statement", (header, body) -> {
            body.get("balance").shouldBe(lessThan(50));
        }));
    }
}

Use one layer to re-enforce tests on another. E.g. REST API layer to set up data for Web UI test, or database layer to validate GraphQL API.

Use REPL to tighten test feedback loop and speed up test writing

webtau:000> $("ul li a")
element is found: by css ul li a
           getText(): Guide
getUnderlyingValue(): Guide
               count: 3

Capture test artifacts like API Responses, screenshots, command line output to automate your user facing documentation.

Leverage out of the box rich reporting: report example

Tests can be written in any JVM language. Language specific syntactic sugar is available for Groovy.


Browser test Java example:

@WebTau
public class WebSearchTest {
    @Test
    public void searchByQuery() {
        search.submit("search this");
        search.numberOfResults.waitToBe(greaterThan(1));
    }
}

public class SearchPage {
    private final PageElement box = $("#search-box");
    private final PageElement results = $("#results .result");
    public final ElementValue<Integer> numberOfResults = results.getCount();

    public void submit(String query) {
        browser.open("/search");

        box.setValue(query);
        box.sendKeys(browser.keys.enter);
    }
}

GraphQL example:

@WebTau
public class GraphQLWeatherJavaIT {
    @Test
    public void checkWeather() {
        String query = "{ weather { temperature } }";
        graphql.execute(query, (header, body) -> {
            body.get("data.weather.temperature").shouldBe(lessThan(100));
        });
    }
}

Database data setup example:

def PRICES = db.table("PRICES")
PRICES << [     "id" | "description" |          "available" |                "type" |       "price" ] {
           _____________________________________________________________________________________________
           cell.guid | "nice set"    |                 true |                "card" |            1000
           cell.guid | "nice set"    |                 true |                "card" | cell.above + 10
           cell.guid | "another set" | permute(true, false) | permute("rts", "fps") | cell.above + 20 }

CLI run example:

cli.run('echo hello world') {
    output.should contain('hello')
    output.should contain('world')
}
