I just started doing some webtest with canoo. Simple test weren't really a problem but know its getting harder and harder.
I read in another forum that canoo can check links and also html validity.
Are any experts here who can tell me how to do the following task:
Defining a startpage and scanning the site for links (also imgae links) and verifiing them, then scanning the page for html validity (missing tags etc.). Afterwards following alls valid links and doind the same there. At the end a report should be created.
Is this managebal with canoo and if you know how?

It can be very much managed!
I am currently using the maven webtest plugin for canoo. And I do get some cool reports!
*Any* page that is invoked / got as a response is checked for parser errors [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] . And yes they do get displayed in the report too.
You dont have to do anything for canoo to generate the reports - you sit and be patient [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
or play games [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Check out the <verifylink> tag to verify links.
You can use Canoo to do some basic functional testing too.
And yes - i dont work for Canoo [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
can u post a screenshot of what the reports look like?
The reports using the maven - plugin look something like the ones on : http://maven-plugins.sourceforge.net...st-report.html
The *steps* link you to the response page [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
You can also checkout the reports from the canoo website - which have a little different look and feel [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
What i like abt canoo is the results.
With other tools I had to specifically script for the results to be logged. And if I dint - I had to sit through the painful process to check what had happened.
With canoo i can run my scripts (which takes 1/4th the time to run in comparison to other tools) and check my mails at the same time [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
