The company I work for uses Nagios to monitor it’s mission critical systems. One common use is to simulate a user logging into a web application by POSTing credentials to a login form and checking for specific strings in the response. This usually gives you an end-to-end check that all systems (web server, database server, etc.) related to the app are functioning.
I eventually came across JScript.NET. I knew about J# (Microsoft’s attempt to lure Java programmers to the .NET platform), but what the heck is JScript.NET? When I create a new project in Visual Studio, there’s no JScript options…
Not sure if I’ll ever need to do something like this again, but it’s nice to know JScript.NET is there…
