Hi Guys -

We were half way through building an InProc host for ASP.NET in our free WebAii automation infrastructure - here: www.artoftest.com when we came across this project. Our goal is to:
1. Have first class support for ASP.NET Testing Scenarios. We want customers to not only run their tests on Firefox or IE, but also run against an in-proc ASP.NET host for quick execution of smoke test scenarios that don't require a browser host.
2. Allow UILess testing of unattended / non-interactive test execution using MSTest and VSTS.

We currently support IE/Firefox using one consistent API and users can switch back and forth using a config switch. Now, we want to also add an option for them to run against an InProc ASP.NET Server so they can now choose IE/Firefox or ASp.NET Server.

We thought we discuss integrating the current Plasma project (The ASP.NET Host Portion only since we already have our own DOM implementation and element search support) in WebAii. Our initial plan is to integrate at the source level and move the code to use our DOM. This way users can still use our rich Find object to do rich element identification (id/attributes/regex/xpaths..etc).

Please give any feedback if there are any reservation/issues you forsee in our integration. Otherwise, we will continue with our own implementation.

Thanks.

Sorry I only just saw this message...

I'd be happy to discuss working together on Plasma. Please contact me if you're still interested. http://aspadvice.com/blogs/ssmith/.

I've made a similar framework, inspired by Plasma, called Ivonna. In-proc, and you don't have to scrap the page (just use the Page object).

I have used this library successfully for running asp.net pages in-process without a browser.  I would like to contribute to the project.  Is the founder of this project still here?
