Course Description

The testing of Web applications is a critical discipline, and this course aims to take the student through the testing of all aspects of a Web application, including the front end and its performance and appearance in the browser, through to the back end and testing the components and classes that create the HTML and XML. The course, successfully used several times by one of the biggest ISPs in the world, also outlines the testing of Web services, and concludes by introducing the student to a number of testing tools such as JUnit, JMeter, XML Spy, and TestMaker.
Target Student:
This training course is designed for Web application developers and testers that need to effectively test XML and HTML based Web applications.
  • Appreciation of the technologies used in Web application development
  • Appreciation of the key concepts for application testing
Delivery Method:
Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
The training course combines lectures with practical exercises that help the delegates to put what they have learned on the training course into practice. The exercises specifically build on what has been recently taught and are built up as the training course progresses.
Performance-Based Objectives
