An Innovative Approach In Testing Web Based Applications

Anuja Singh, Kamna Solanki, Shruti Mittal


Testing a web application is a different task, as the scenarios change more often. Web application deal with different type of large and diversified users. So a lot of effort is needed in designing test cases and also to execute them. Test cases should be written not only considering the functional environment but also including the technical environment .To test a web application no predefined approach is used, So consider all the aspect of usage and input before applying testing. This study review the techniques for testing web applications and trying to propose a model which help in meeting the challenges of testing web applications.
