    Question Web application testing approaches and tricks based on development language..

    Hi all..

    I am still learning web application testing and wanted to know some tricks when a web-application is tested. As a user, when I look at the webpages, I don't feel anything different if a website is built on Java, .Net, ASP or any other languages.

    What is the difference while approaching websites with different platforms/languages? It will be very helpful if I can choose the correct approach for each type of web applications... Thanks in advance..

    What you need is to understand the layers, and what types of problems can occur in the different layers and achitechture.

    Front end
    - HTML / CSS / JavaScript - This is what people will end up viewing in the browsers
    - Application Layer - This is what generates the HTML

    Back end
    - Services
    - Middleware
    - Database

    Understanding these layers will give you a greater idea of what issues can occur in them. For example, backend layer bugs will causes issues with access control, security, data loss, and data processing. While front end issues will greatly impact user experience, and UI issues. You'll want to know about the different layers your web application uses, what each layer/service is responsible for, and using that, figure out what types of issues can occur in those areas.

    Depending on frameworks used and which layers, you have different types of problems that can occur. For example, if PHP is used in the Application layers, you may have issues that are more cross scripting issues since PHP has templating built into the language, however using the built in language's built in templating directly isn't very safe. Or if they are using AngularJS for their JavaScript layer, you may have lots of issues with browser compatibility. Since AngularJS extends the DOM, and each browser implements the DOM differently.
