Web Application UI Testing with jQuery

The open source jQuery library is a collection of JavaScript functions that allow Web developers to create client-side effects such as fade-in and fade-out more quickly than by using plain JavaScript code. I have been looking at using jQuery to write simple, lightweight Web application UI test automation. The main advantage of using jQuery for test automation rather than using raw JavaScript is that the functions in jQuery work with multiple browsers (IE, Safari, Firefox, etc.) The screenshot below shows an example of testing a simple Web application using jQuery. The frame on the left hosts a jQuery test harness script, and the frame on the right hosts the Web application under test. I intend to write an article for MSDN Magazine which describes all the details.
