Again on DZone there is a nice introduction into HtmlUnit. It provides a Java based WebClient which you can control via its API. With this you could write JUnit tests. But more easily you could write them with the additional assert-Methods:

@Test
public void testGoogle(){
 WebClient webClient = new WebClient();
 HtmlPage currentPage = webClient.getPage("http://www.google.com/");
 assertEquals("Google", currentPage.getTitleText());
}
@Test public void htmlunitAsserts() {
 // Load a page
 webClient.getPage("http://www.google.com/search?q=htmlunit");

 // JUnit asserts and WebClient API
 assertEquals(200,currentPage.getWebResponse().getStatusCode());
 assertEquals("OK",currentPage.getWebResponse().getStatusMessage());

 // HtmlUnit asserts
 WebAssert.assertTextPresent(currentPage, "htmlunit");
 WebAssert.assertTitleContains(currentPage, "htmlunit");
 WebAssert.assertLinkPresentWithText(currentPage, "Advanced search");

 // XPath Query
 assertTrue(currentPage.getByXPath("//h3").size()>0); //result number

 // Cookies
 assertNotNull(webClient.getCookieManager().getCookie("NID"));
}

According to Entwickler.COM Microsoft has published a bunch of Powerpoint-Templates for demonstrating the new features of PPT 2010.

Also if you write JPA applications you should have a good test suite. So looking at the blog „Patterns for Better Unit Testing with JPA“ is not waste of time 😉
