ABSTRACT
While low level unit testing has been quite well explored and is now established, the automated testing of complex business processes is still a challenge. One reason for this is that developers often just do not understand or speak the language of business people and vice versa. This makes the specification of test cases for real business processes more difficult. Another reason is that unit testing frameworks, which are very well suited for the automated testing of low-level classes, were not designed to test high-level processes needing extra infrastructure. In this article we will show how the open source framework Fit, which was designed for high-level acceptance testing, can be used for automated business process testing and how these tests can be added to legacy code.
