Webimon - A New Tool For Windows Users
WebMon has been around for a few years now and is a product of SIA (Securities and Exchange Commission) who have made it available to the public. The product offers the user the ability to run multiple scenarios or tests on their Windows platform. If you have Windows XP, Microsoft will not allow you to register the product so you need to find a different solution. However, Webimon is a great tool for Windows based testing scenarios as it supports all versions of Windows.
WebMon allows you to drag and drop events from one HTML page to another. You can add event triggers such as checkboxes, radio-buttons, text boxes, checkboxes etc... and set the rules for the user to follow or events to run. For instance, you can create a new web scenario in which the user is required to click a button to check their e-mails. You can then trigger the weapon on a regular basis to check the 'inbox' for new messages from any specified e-mail address. The possibilities are endless really.
Webimon comes with two licensing options: commercial and noncommercial. This gives you flexibility to use the product for both commercial and noncommercial applications. Webimon also provides an in-built encryption module which runs in the background as an application and thus it is completely invisible to the user - meaning there are no visual indications that the application is running. In this way, the user never knows that the encryption is in place making it virtually risk free for you. This is a big advantage over other similar products and is one of the main reasons why WebMon is so popular amongst developers and testers.
