Currently: Atha allows the user to write automated tests in the scripting languages IronPython, IronRuby, PowerShell, and Razor and to run those tests via a Console program (called "AthaX") or a WPF Windows application (called "Athalon"). Future releases will support a web-supported "light" client initially written in Silverlight (called "Athalight").

The goal of this project is to provide a simple means of acceptance and regression testing delivered on top of the Microsoft technology stack (although future versions may support non-Microsoft testing).

Atha was derived from the initial alpha-version releases of the E.S.W.A.T. project (Even Simpler Web/Windows Acceptance Testing) to build on the lessons learned. The Atha name stands for "Acceptance Testing Heuristics Automation".

Atha Terminology:
Athaverse = The Entire Atha System
Athamite = User
Athalect = Test Script Language
Athalon = Rich Windows Client Test Runner (WPF)
AthaX = Console Test Runner
Athalight = Cloud Client (Silverlight)
Athanet = Cloud Services & Host (WCF)
Athabot = Agent (a vague term for any unique component of Atha in the Cloud. e.g. a Language Runner, a Language Service, etc.)
