    The work describes the requirements and constraints of testing a Web application system for the Austrian Chamber of Commerce. It separates the testing task into two parts - one for testing the Web architecture and one for testing the Internet application itself. The high costs of testing an Internet application are driven not only by the complexity of the architecture, but also by the complex usag... View full abstract»

  • A 2-layer model for the white-box testing of Web applications

    White-box testing exercises a software system by ensuring that a model of the internal structure is covered by the test cases. Extending this approach to Web applications is far from obvious, because at least two abstraction levels can be considered to represent the internal structure of a Web application: the navigation model and the control flow model. To further complicate the matter, dynamic c... View full abstract»

    Scripting languages have become a very popular choice for implementing server-side programs in Web applications. Scripting languages are thought to provide quick start up and enhance programmer productivity. We present two case studies in which scripting languages were used. In both studies, the projects struggled with implementation; however, project factors such as the strength of management and... View full abstract»

  • Web site evolution via transaction reengineering

    In a transaction-oriented Web site, the user executes a series of activities in order to carry out a specific task (e.g., purchase an airplane ticket). The manner in which the activities can be executed is a consequence of the transaction design, partially influenced by the constraints implied by the business model underlying the Web application. Unfortunately, many Web sites are constructed with ... View full abstract»

    Researchers involved in Web site reverse engineering are often not aware of potential legal implications of using someone else's Web site for experimentation. Even if researchers are concerned with legal problems, there is little guidance available. This paper explores the legality of Web site reverse engineering with the intent to raise awareness among researchers about this issue. The discussed ... View full abstract»

  • Creating effective load models for performance testing with incomplete empirical data

    For all that the effectiveness of performance testing in terms of the accuracy of load simulation is a common topic of conversation and concern among people and organizations that build or depend on Web-based applications, testing a Web site in such a way as to reliably predict performance is still often more of an art than a science. More than a few brilliant minds have dedicated their careers to... View full abstract»

    Web based intranet applications are increasingly becoming popular in organizations for in-house functions. These applications are different from Web sites as they offer substantially greater opportunities for users in terms of modifying the site status and they are different from traditional software applications due to their WWW platform. Unlike traditional Web applications they are smaller in si... View full abstract»

    Cross site scripting (XSS) is a vulnerability of a Web application that is essentially caused by the failure of the application to check up on user input before returning it to the client's Web browser. Without an adequate validation, user input may include malicious code that may be sent to other clients and unexpectedly executed by their browsers, thus causing a security attack. Techniques to pr... View full abstract»

    In this talk, the author presents results from analyzing Web testing strategies at several Fortune 500 companies, and some of the changes made to improve the return from Web testing efforts. The talk places this work in the context of the evolving technical challenges of Web testing, and considers advantages and risks of several types of change to testing processes, practices and staffing.
