    Re: Cookies role while testing an application

    Well, cookies, especially chocolate chip, help the tester to be more alert and not need to break for a snack whilst performing the steps of the test case. There are so many different kinds of cookies, but I like the ones with the elves on the package.

    Caution: Be careful not to drop crumbs on the keyboard that may interfere with the keys and cause the test to fail.

    Re: Cookies role while testing an application

    Hi can anyone tell me while writing Test cases for example it is login page, Do we write Separate Test Case for Cookies.
    Like
    1. When cookie is disabled.
    2. When cookie is rejected.
    3. When cookie is deleted.
    4. When cookie is corrupted.
    5. When cookie is encrypted.

    Do we write Test Case for cookies. If not, then how we test application functionality while Testing application.

    Re: Cookies role while testing an application

    Pl. refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie for info on cookie.

    I believe you are talking about 'Authentication cookie'.

    Personally I have never written test case for a cookie. You may have to ask developers to get inputs.

    The only thing I know is if there is a problem with the Authentication cookie, you won't be able to login.

    Re: Cookies role while testing an application

    So Sanket while Testing an application, how do we test application functionality against cookie. Because -
    1. Suppose if you delete cookie,Then how does application behaves.
    2. If we disable cookie,Then how does application behaves.
    3. Check whether cookie is encrypted or not.
    4. First corrupt the cookie, Then check it should not work after being corrupted.


    So without testing cookie, how you know Answer for these different questions.

    1. If we delete cookie after logging in, generally the application should log you out. But again it varies from apps to apps. There is no hard & fast rule for this.
    2. The user will not be authenticated. I don't what your application does in this case.
    3. You can view cookies in firebug or HTTP watch.
    4. I guess the result would be session expire (not sure on this). But most of the end users don't like to play with the cookies.

    If I were in your shoes, I would directly ask developers such questions.
