Jameleon is an automated testing framework that can be easily used by technical and non-technical users alike. One of the main concepts behind Jameleon is to create a group of keywords or tags that represent different screens of an application. All of the logic required to automate each particular screen can be defined in Java and mapped to these keywords. The keywords can then be organized with different data sets to form test scripts without requiring an in-depth knowledge of how the application works. The test scripts are then used to automate testing and to generate manual test case documentation.


JBehave is a java-based framework designed to encourage collaboration between Developers, QAs, BAs, business and other team members through automated scenarios. Behaviour-driven development (BDD) is an evolution of test-driven development (TDD) and acceptance-test driven design, and is intended to make these practices more accessible and intuitive to newcomers and experts alike.


Jetif is a regression test framework in pure Java. It provides a simple and flexible architecture for Java unit testing and functional testing, and used for testing in both individual and enterprise software development. It's easy to use, but powerful, and with some important features for enterprise software testing. This project was inspired by JUnit, JTestCase and TestNG. There are several ideas come from JUnit, for example the assertion mechanism and TestListener concept, so it's easy to move to Jetif from JUnit.


JSystem is an open source framework for writing and running automated system testing projects. The JSystem framework is comprised of the following components: 1. Services Java API - exposes JSystem services 2. JSystem Drivers- Java modules used to interfaces with devices and applications in the system under test. 3. JRunner - GUI application interface used for creating and running tests scenarios. 4. JSystem Agent - Execution engine used to run scenarios on a distributed setup. 5. JSystem Eclipse plug-in - accelerates the development environment setup and enforces JSystem conventions.


JTestCase is a 100% pure Java, open-source microframework that helps in separating test case data from test case units. JTestCase embodies the concept of a TestCase. A TestCase can be seen as combination of one (or more) assert for a specific set of input parameters. The introduction section explains this concept with further details. A moderately complex java projects may comprise hundreds of junit test case. JTestCase helps you organize your test cases in a rationale and efficient way. To achieve this goal JTestCase provides: * A propetary XML format to define your test cases in an abstract way. * Easy-to-use API to retrieve data from XML file and to do assertion.


JtestR is a tool that will make it easier to test Java code with state of the art Ruby tools. The main project is a collection of Ruby libraries bundled together with JRuby integration so that running tests is totally painless to set up. The project also includes a background server so that the startup cost of JRuby can be avoided.


JUnitDoclet lowers the step toward JUnit. It generates skeletons of TestCases based on your application source code. And it supports you to reorganize tests during refactoring.
