Good stuff, guys. Eager to see the material reach a wider audience.

Hi guys,

I’ve bought the ebook but am waiting for some downtime (xmas break?) to read it. So only skimmed pages so far.

I totally get that the book uses ruby tools to test stuff. But…

OTOH, I was hoping that what was being tested was not always ruby/javascript. The later is probably always useful, the former not quite as much.

So the big question: is it beyond the scope of this book to test other language/frameworks eg web apps built with php, but using ruby tools?

I’m guessing that testing would be more ‘black box’… kind of user-acceptance testing? [if that’s the right terminology]

Seems like Watchr could be used… maybe webrat etc

Any chance of some additional material/resources to address the above?

That’s probably beyond the scope of THIS book, but it’s certainly a topic we could explore in blogs/articles/other books.
