The purpose of this type of test is to ensure that every function is working according to the specifications. Functions apply to a complete system as well as a separated unit. Within the context of the web, functionality testing can, for example, include testing links, forms, Java Applets or ActiveX applications.
To ensure that the system has the capability that is requested the performance have to be tested for. The characteristics normally measured are execution time, response time etc. In order to identify bottlenecks, the system or application have to be tested under various conditions.
When testing applications for the web this kind of testing becomes very important. Since the users are not normally known and the number of users can vary dramatically, web applications have to be tested thoroughly. Testing web applications for extreme conditions is done by load- and stress testing. These two are performed to ensure that the application can withstand, for example, a large amount of users simultaneously or large amount of data from each user. Other characteristics of the web that is important can be download time, network speed etc.
To ensure that the product will be accepted on the market it has to appeal to users. There are several ways to measure usability and user response. For the web, this is often very important due to the users low acceptance level for glitches in the interface or navigation. Due to the nearly complete lack of standards for web layout this area is dependent on actual usage of the site to receive as useful information as possible.
This refers to different settings or configuration of, for example, client machine, server or external databases. When looking at web this can be a very intricate area to test due to the total lack of control over the client machine configuration or an external database. Will your site be compatible with different browser versions, operating systems or external interfaces?
In order to persuade customers to use Internet banking services or shop over the web, security must be high enough. One must feel safe when posting personal information on a site in order to use it. Typical areas to test are directory setup, SSL, logins, firewalls and logfiles.
Security is an area of great importance as well as great extent, not least for the web.
