    Re: website page testing(what i will do.......)

    hi Peter,
    first of all i will collect following detail informations as analysis

    1. web site is interanet or internet based
    2. can i get Specs(requirements) related to gien page
    3.what kind of page data is e.g. is it dynamic page or static
    4. what about contents and graphics
    5.what is mentioned time for page down load(mostly page response time is mentioned in Specs)
    6. if Specs are not given i will test web page using my past experience and by comparison

    After collecting data i will start testing which would involve usibility,funtional and performance testing

    If i am following incorrect approach to test page of web site please provide me correct information

    regards

    That's good. What kinds of things would you do to test usability, functionality and performance?

    Re: website page testing(what i will do.......)

    Usibility testing involves
    1. pages look and feel(color scheme,content style and font consistency)

    2. spell mistakes
    3. test for display messages


    Functionality testing:
    1. if page is like Form then test it by providing valid inputs
    2. By leaving all fields empty and pressing Add/Save Button
    3. providing invalid inputs(for negative testing)
    4. test the buttons functionality given on page
    5. test data is being saved or not
    If page contains some links then i will test
    All links are working properly
    i will test that there should be any dead link


    Performance testing

    i will use WAPT (open source web permance testing tool)
    i will test page for load and stress
    i will check load time of page

    Re: website page testing(what i will do.......)

    And what about the testing that the given web link is working or not (the required web page displayed) [img]/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]
    If you win you need not explain...But if you lose you should not be there to explain.

    1. Legal department tests.
    2. Data input widths - do the widths precisely match the column widths in the database? Saving the data and checking is not enough.
    3. Security

    Re: website page testing(what i will do.......)

    also you might want to consider following

    * compliance508 testing
    * field boundary test
    * if web is linked with DB then security test such as injecting SQL script (you can add it to performance)
    * testing on different browsers (FF, I.E 6.0 -> 7.1 etc)
    * testing to check if your site accept (ASCII) characters see the site http://www.asciitable.com/

    hope that helps you toward your testing
