You could try Jmeter - http://jakarta.apache.org/jmeter/ - we have used that
in the past.

Subject: [WEB SECURITY] Scripting Question

This question might be a little offtopic for this list, so please let me
know if I should direct it elsewhere.

I'm looking for a way to automate some client-side exploit testing. I want
to write a script that loads web pages automatically in a real web browser.
I realize that there are multiple other kludges that might do something
similar (setting up the RefreshEvery Firefox extension for one), but the
goal is to expand this to some other things, as well.

What I'm really looking for is a way to code UI interaction (or some
libraries that might help with that). I've found some easy ways to do it in
OSX (Automator makes things like this really simple), but was wondering if
anyone on the list has ever done anything like this before and might be able
to point me to any articles/books about the topic, or recommend which
languages might have the best facilities for a project like this.

Thanks.
