Answer / shivanibehere
According to Tester's Point of view------
1) Web Base Application (WBA)is a 3 tier
application ;Browser,Back end and Server.
Client server Application(CSA) is a 2 tier
Application ;Front End ,Back end .
2) In the WBA tester test for the Script error like java
script error VB script error etc, that shown at the page.
In the CSA tester does not test for any script error.
3) Because in the WBA once changes perform reflect at every
machine so tester has less work for test.
Whereas in the CSA every time application need to be
instal hence ,it maybe possible that some machine has some
problem for that Hardware testing as well as software
testing is needed.

Answer / sujatha
As per my knowledge
Web Based App means:
1.The web app can be developed by using any kind of tech
2.It's a 3 tier arch.i.e
c.Data tier(Oracle,SQL Server)
3.If any change occure in app that will effect only sever
side.means here no need to bother about the client means
client is thin client means browser.
any change occure in app the entire app is installed in
sever only becoz in this the core app will reside at server
Client server App:
1It's a 2 tier arch.
c.Data tier(Oracle,SQL Server)
2.In client server app ,the app will reside in client side
only .means if any change will occure in app that will
effect the client.

Answer / samyuktha shetty
Client server application: In this type of architecture,
the entier application has to be installed on client
machine, and whenever you do any changes in your code,
again it has to be installed on all the client machines.
Web based application:Core application resides on the
server and client can be thin client( browser).whatever
changes you do, you have to install the application in
server, NO need to worry about the clients,bcoz u will not
install anything on client machine

Answer / preethi
Difference between web based application and client server
applications are as follows:
1)Client server applcation directly we can launch
where as for launching the web based applcations we need
start database server,web server and by using internet
explorer (URL) we can launch web based application
2)Client server applications are menu driven where as web
based applications are liks driven to get the next page.
3)Client server application will contain less content, and
with less images
when compared to web based applications
web applications will contain more content with more images

Answer / sreeen
actually in web based testing we main concentrate on
browser compatability .why bec in IE it display gui objects
correctly but in the Netscape it will change the position
of gui objects should be changed.
after words we will check broken links,image links,home
page from every page,securities,cookies,donot divide the
pages into more frames,colors,fonts,images.
In the client server application we will check response
time,normal functioanlity,server load,deadlock.

Answer / sridhar
client Server: Testing the application in intranet (with out browse) is an example for client - server ( the company firewalls for the server are not open to outside world outside people cannot access the application) so there will be limited number of people using that application
Web application: testing an application in internet (using browser ) is called web testing the application which is accessible by numbers around world (world wide web)

1.1 . using client and server only.
1.2 changes can't reflect in this. used to install again and test whether application works or not.
1.3 Single user system.
1.4 difficult to test scripting problem in this.
1.5 Using functionality, Regression, load testing.
2. Web application using multi tier architecture
2.1 many users can use at the same time.
2.2 three tier architecture which are user client, middled tier which is for Database and application server for this.
2.3 changes regarding scripting reflecting at the moment only.
2.4 Easy for testing.
2.5 using functionlity, regression, load, stress, performance,security, etc.
