For engine development, there's a framework based on script-only stacks. 
  It logs using the TAP protocol, and is robust to tests that cause 
unexpected errors or even crashes.  The code is all there in the git 
repository:

https://github.com/livecode/livecode/tree/develop/tests

It could very likely be adapted for testing arbitrary applications by 
putting stuff to load an app in the tests' "TestSetup" handlers.
