c/s and web testing
can any one tell me the major differrence
between c/s and web testing and can automated testing is used in c/s .
thanks in advance.
Re: c/s and web testing
Web applications are basicly client/server. The main difference I see is that, in most cases, you have to account for variations in the client with web-applications. Some people may be using IE and some Netscape or other. Additionally, there are several versions of each as well as a myriad of customization options. Most all of the other testing considerations for client/server applications apply to web-testing. Performance, functionality, security, reliability, etc.
When it comes to automation tools, the concept is again much the same. The automation tool either acts upon the application GUI interface (in the case of applications) or upon the web browser (with web applications). There are specialized tools for web-testing that work with the http and https protocol, but this is not much different than application tools that interact with other protocols in standard applications (SQL Server, DCOM, or other). So, automation is much the same.
