BuildMonkey is an automated build, integration, and test platform for large-scale software development, particularly for distributed teams. It lets you manage multiple projects at once on different platforms and with different build technologies (Ant, make, gmake, etc.) and monitor SCM repositories to know what changed, when, and by whom. Build results are known immediately through email notification, and complete build logs are available via a central build dashboard. BuildMonkey integrates with the BuildMonkey EVT test suite to know the status of your host and network infrastructure at all times. Successful builds can be tagged in the SCM repository so they can be recreated.
The Java Engine for Testing (JET) is a system for running distributed automated tests. It has been used by Sun for testing the High Availability DataBase (HADB), JavaDB, PostgreSQL, Memcached, and the MySQL Cluster Manager. JET should be a good way to write your tests if the product you want to test is distributed or has a client/server architecture, if it is natural for you to write the tests in Java, and if you want to invest time in developing tests and abstractions for later reuse.
