E-test suite by RSW Software didn't do very well. We are approaching other vendors such as Segue and Mercury Interactive. We also intend to give RSW another go (this time we will let them look at our application).
In the meantime any thoughts and opinions you have will be much appreciated.
Possible tools to evaluate for Java applet testing (listed in no particular order). Please note that I am listing some of the major vendors only - this is not an exhaustive list:
How to test applets and servlets (using Jtest see http://www.parasoft.com/products)
Jtest is not an applet testing tool. However, you can test the applet's classes and the methods of the classes using Jtest.
The best way to do this is by using Test Classes (see the user manual). Write test cases in the Test Class. Each test case can call and test the methods of the applet to test the calls to the getResource method.
At this time, Jtest cannot test specific security restrictions in Applets/Servlets. Jtest tests each class individually; so when testing a given class it is unable to tell if the class is going to be used in an applet or in an application.
Rationalís PureCoverage during unit testing (see www.rational.com)
Visual PureCoverage collects coverage data for any Java applet launched in the session of Internet Explorer that was started with Cstart.exe. For more info go to www.rational.com
Rational Robot for regression testing (see www.rational.com)
Robot provides comprehensive support for testing GUI components in both Java applets and standalone Java applications. With its Object Testing technology, Robot examines the data and properties of Java components.

No bad intent! By the way note my statement in the post you are referring to:
"...Please note that I am listing some of the major vendors only - this is not an exhaustive list..."
