I'm not sure whether you could leverage something out of this, but
here it is.

I'm working on a testing framework for HTTP and SOAP based apps, which
I called Anteater. The code is based on Tomcat's httpClient testing
framework, which in turn is based on Ant.

This framework allows one to send HTTP requests to a server, check and
extract things out of the response. It also embeds Tomcat, so one can
also receive HTTP requests within Ant. This is used to test complex
SOAP applications which send HTTP requests back to the original

An older version of the code is placed at:

I'm currently working on a new version, with extensive changes in the
source code for better extensibility. If you're interested in it, I'm
more than willing to donate it as an optional Ant package.
