[pLog-svn] Tools for automated functional testings

As the number of features in plog keeps growing, it is becoming more
and more difficult to test everything. Unit testing could help in some
areas, but unit testing is focused on testing classes while we what we
would really need is to do more functional testing, i.e. making sure
that features work as they should. We could create test cases for each
one of our features and then manually go through them and mark them as
passed or not, but that would be painful because we've got too many

I was wondering if any of you has some experience in this area,
specially when it comes to automating these processes (to a certain
extent) I have been toying with tools like JMeter
(http://jakarta.apache.org/jmeter/) and it seems like it could be what
I'm looking for despite its hideous UI.

So, any experience with this kind of testing processes and tools? Or
am I the only one who thinks that this could be useful? :-)
