I'm searching for a test suite right now and I see Windmill is quite
promising. Now I wonder for one thing, after searching through this
group, github document, and google search, I want to know if Windmill
can assert directly from XHR response instead of element or javascript

My use case is this. In some AJAX action on my web application, no
element was added to DOM after the AJAX request is returned. However,
the request will return a response message, such as "success". My
question is, can Windmill detect this response message? something like
'waitForResponse' method.

I will really appreciate your reply.

Hey Panu,

Windmill can do what you are looking for, but it's using the windmill javascript framework instead of the standard action by action DOM stuff, check out the JSTests documentation for details:
