While end-to-end testing of AJAX applications is not as easy as, say, a
command-line application, it is certainly not impossible. The previous
incarnation of SWAT2 had no tests whatsoever, and it could easily have
had a lot better test coverage. Its main worker functions, which didn't
involve any AJAXy bits at all, should have had tests, but we didn't have
the habit of unit testing our swat2 EJS code.

There are several frameworks that help in doing end to end testing. I
only have (mixed) experiences with Windmill, see

He's doing a great job, and I think it deserves a bit more visibility.
It would be nice to make it a bit more easily installable (it should
be just a matter of unpacking a tar.gz in the right location, but isn't
at the moment).
