This framework concieved by Ward Cunningham has made it possible for customers to write automated tests. It separates the work of defining the tests using tables in web pages or spreadsheets from the programming work of exercising the system under test (SUT). While Fit was once a particular tool, it is now a specification for a family of tools implemented in various languages including Java, .Net, Ruby, Phython, etc. Some members of the family are simply test execution frameworks while others, like Fitnesse, include test authoring and versioning capabilities. All should implement the same set of standard fixtures. More information can be found at Ward's website http://fit.c2.com or in the book [FitB] he co-wrote with Rick Mudgridge.
