Re: Web Service Testing and Data Conversion/Data Inte
What would you like to know about Web Service Testing and Data Conversion/Data Integrity Testing?
What have you learned from your own research?
These are very big questions with even bigger answers and being at work right now myself, I can't take the time to answer such big questions. Do you have any specific questions on these subjects. I'll be happy to help once you've narrowed your questions.
Re: Web Service Testing and Data Conversion/Data I
I will give a shot a Web Services Testing.
Well first of all to understand web services testing, we have to understand what a web site is and how does it actually work. There are a variety of website each varying enormously in complexity. The basic architecture that we come across (a very high level) is : web client (the site that we can view on a web browser) ; web server (the server that serves the web pages to the client in response to the http(s) requests) ; transaction server (here is where the business logic of the website is implemented); back-end database (where the data is actually stored and retrieved).
Well testing methods can vary enormously depending on the type of website we are testing (for example a lot of emphasis has to be given to test the security of an e-commerce website).
So broadly testing is also divided on the lines of the web architecture:
1. We can test the presentation layer (do a browser compatibility test [different browser and different versions], check the website content accuracy, see if the logos and aesthetics and colour combinations are consistent throughout the website, check if page flow is logical, there are no dead end web-pages, If client side scripts like Java Script and VB script are working accurately [do a data validation test])
Similarly we can test the webserver, transaction server and do a database testing. Each of which employs different techniques.
Other non functional testing like load testing can be carried out using load tools available in the market.
Hope this gives you an over view of web testing.
Please free to give a different testing strategy for websites.
