Rubytest is a universal test harness for Ruby development. Think of Rubytest as a testing meta-framework. It defines a straight-forward specification that anyone can use to create their own testing DSLs quickily and easily. This can be used for testing end applcations or it can be used by test framework as a backend. In addition, since all Rubytest controls the backend, multiple frameworks can be used in a single test suite all of which can run through a single uniform interface in a process.
