Not appropriate, I think. Cactus is for poking and testing internal
classes running in the server. I just want to see if the pages come up
okay (black-box testing, not white-box testing). Currently they don't.
It would be great if Gump could alert people to this, instead of suckers
like me ;P

Anteater is a bunch of Ant tasks for doing HTTP-based functional
testing. Eg, hit a URL, get back the contents and test it in some way.
There's predefined tests ("matchers"), like checking XML against an
XPath expression, or a text against a regexp.
