comment Automated network capture and analysis?
Yea that's what I figured as one option (as mentioned in question about using pcap libraries). Thanks for providing code example of how to do it.

Thanks, that's good to know. Too bad code's not available to share as open source :(

comment Telecom testing - any tool integration and use of test frameworks?
Thanks for the feedback. I'm aware of that, but not all telecom tools offer an API (e.g. legacy telecom tools a decade or more old, in house tools, SIPP). I find it rather interesting that for an open source project, nobody has bothered to expose an API for SIPP, it's all XML input files. Compare that to Selenium for web apps which has rich API.

For Selenium performance testing on client side, while outdated, this is also a good resource: code.google.com/p/selenium-profiler

Also wanted to add, Sikuli can be better than Selenium or a complement to Selenium (via tools integration), where Selenium falls short. E.g. where you can't automate/detect object that isn't web-based such as Flash, Silverlight, Java applet, image/video, or combining browser and desktop GUI testing in a single test.

On my previous comment, I personally would use Sikuli at the most atomic level for finding/comparing images. That is don't use a whole desktop screenshot as your reference image to find against unless you have to. Always use the smallest portion (e.g. just the object in question, or the object and some other objects relative to it in layout). This will allow for different screen resolutions w/o breaking the test. Whole desktop screenshots dictate you match the screen resolution for it to work.

The Sikuli API has parameters for setting level of difference in finding images as well, though it might be less feature rich in how you specify differences compared to other tools or libraries.

Well, unless you're comparing against exact match or some specific comparison algorithm or DOM structure, then Sikuli is useful for comparing images or any object/element on the screen/page represented by an image. The method to do this is to capture a reference element/object (say just a button) on the screen (crop it out from a screenshot) or if you need it relative to other objects, then capture a larger portion of screen or even the whole screen. Save the (cropped) capture as reference image. Then use Sikuli API in test to try and find if object exists anywhere on given screen.

comment Under what circumstances is Sikuli better for test automation than Selenium or Watir?
Check out my Sikuli wrapper project that presents a bit of how to appropriately use Sikuli as well as a smaller core subset API of what you would do with Sikuli: code.google.com/p/simplesikuli/wiki/UsageDetails
