Testing Techniques for Web Application

Web application testing, a software testing technique exclusively adopted to test the applications that are hosted on web in which the application interfaces and other functionalities are tested.

Testing Methods for Web Application


1.Functionality Testing

This testing is used for checking all the links of the web pages; form testing, cookie testing and database connection.

  • Test all links
  • Test Cookies
  • Test HTML and CSS

Compatibility testing confirms the website design company is compatible across different browsers and also on a variety of devices. It includes following tests.

  •  Browser Compatibility Testing
  •  Device Compatibility Testing

5. Performance testing

Web application should sustain to heavy load. Web performance testing should include:

  • Web Load Testing
  • Web Stress Testing

6.Security testing

Security testing can be static or dynamic.

Static :Static testing involves doing a static code analysis to check for any vulnerabilities. The goal is to understand the code flow and check for security threats by walking through the code.

Dynamic : Dynamic testing entails running the application to see if the response is as expected for the associated request. It is very similar to black box testing.

Following are some of the test cases for web security testing:

  •   Privilege Escalation
  •   Denial Of Service
  •   Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
  •   Security Misconfiguration
  •   Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards
