Function testing tools that cover both web based applications and stand alone
I am essentially looking for preferably an open source/free tool which would alloy me to function /regression test standalone as well as web based browser driven applications. Thereby essentially letting me automate an end to end test of the whole software. The software is web based with standalone components. If the tool is catered more towards web services that would be an additional plus. We are on a very low budget, but it can be expanded if the tool is really good.
To put it in the box first think out of the box
