Thanks for the pointers Michele. I have heard about those and their
are on my todo list. However, the features of TestNG
are very advanced and I don't think they are available in other
frameworks (TestNG is not a unit testing framework,
but a full flavored testing framework that fits perfectly functional
testing, integration testing, and with some of the
very advanced features even performance and load testing).
But I will make sure I am taking a look at the ones you pointed me to
(and I think I have a longer list available around).
