  • It's very user friendly. Recording and playing test cases is very easy. Also good thing is it supports Java FX and commercial version has lot more features., like it supports Web Applications and Grid testing and lot more.

  • Good program. Easy to record tests and play them back. Can be integrated with jenkins using ant runner.

  • Thanks for good program!

  • I do believe you need to update the description for Marathon v3 - it does not support Jython and may mislead people - it has been said that tentative dates of jython support project will start in late may, but v3 does not support it. Not that I have a vested interest in this.... :) I love the tool - but need Jython as all our test cases are all coded in Jython as my love for Python enabled me to create a vast repertoire of tests for my apps.

  • Nice code base, was easily converted to a Maven2 plugin.
