Welcome to SWATT (pronounced \swät\). Here we help Software Test Engineers (and testing novices) navigate the realm of automated testing. While the internet is full of sites dedicated to helping software developers, There is very little dedicated to software testing. So we are here to fill in the gap. This site consists of two parts:
A Java Code Library that helps Software Test Engineers do their jobs more efficiently.
And Software Testing Articles that will help individuals and companies with their testing efforts.
We hope you like what you see! And feel free to share your thoughts.
