Can anyone point me to an example of executing a test case in multiple threads concurrently? There are 10 instances of the application under tests running on 4 different boxes. I am attempting to build a release night test that will use the url and verify what instance of the web app we have accessed (by checking a developer inserted tag in the source). If the instance of the app has not been encountered a series of tests will be executed, other wise the script will log off, close the browser, launch a new browser and try again. I would like this process to run from multiple threads concurrently in hopes of hitting all app servers quicker. This test has been simulated manually, but I am not sure how to implement in Ruby and Watir. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Look at SW Explorer Automation (http://home.comcast.net/~furmana/SWIEAutomation.htm). The program creates automation API for any Web application based on HTML and DHTML The API is used to visually record the test scripts. The number of test instances is limited only by Windows limitation on number of IE instances.

Thanks Alex! I will take a look at this when I get some down time. Kalen
