What's the Fuss About Fuzz?

Zed’s rockin’ away on a new project:
http://rfuzz.rubyforge.org/index.html

From what I can tell, fuzzing is like unleashing thousands of monkeys
with keyboards on your website and seeing if anything breaks. Has
anybody tried RFuzz? What’s sorts of things has it found?

Thanks,
Joe

Do we really need another anti-IE flamefest?

Hehe, yeah Joe, it’s pretty capable already, but could use some more use
in the fuzzing area.

Take a look in the examples directory. There’s a Mongrel test suite
that uses rspec and rant to fire up a Rails app at ~/projects/testapp
and then tries to destroy it and validate certain things. All the tests
in that suite came from bugs that were found which I needed fuzzing to
prevent in future releases.

Next, take a look at the examples dir for various ways it’s used as a
client and as a fuzzing lib.

Then, try breaking some stuff and let me know what happens. Tons of
fun.

My impression was that JDL was implying that IE users are monkeys. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Aye. It was just lame humor posted during a moment of boredom.

Based on this thread, I’ve been checking out fuzz and it looks pretty
cool.

Eh? Not sure if you were joking, but I’m pretty sure Joe wasn’t bashing
IE. It’s just a tool for breaking all sorts of stuff. I’ll tell ya,
Firefox sure could use some Fuzz as well in the javascript domain.
Safari could use some fuzzing tests in how it handles the HTTP protocol
as well. Everything is suspect really.

Mostly because writing software really sucks (and no, Haskell don’t fix
it :-).

When you become a MUDCRAP Certified Engineer, you too will be able to
pretend to be me so well that others confuse you with me and all my
powerful glory.

What is Rails, is it like a simple case tool? Can I use VB to write the
code instead of that other language?

Thanks

You shouldn’t be posting this message to this mailing list, but here
are some links that might clear things up a bit:

• http://www.rubyonrails.org/
• http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby_on_Rails

… and no, you can’t use VB to write your code, do your dishes, mow
your lawn and make your coffee :slight_smile: If you want a VB clone, have a
look at REALbasic.

Best regards

This is FANTASTIC – it must mean I’m getting closer to the black belt
level of MUDCRAP-CE!!!

Joe

Ahh, ok, thats a shame. I wanted to use VB so that it would be robust.

Thanks Anyway
