Thanks for your responses,
what i would like to do is ftesting an application from the users side
(behind a skin), which already has some data stored in the ZODB, so i
first tried to

>>> browser.open('http://localhost/myapp/')
but i got a 404

same result with accessing a skin

then i tried
>>> browser.open('http://localhost/')
>>> browser.contents

an tried to find the myapp entry in the html-code, but myapp is gone.
Is this because of a clean environment generated with
zope.testbrowser.testing ?

ok, now i could test the UI behavior of myapp with
zope.testbrowser.browser, but how would i revert changes i made with the

or is there any other approach to this?
