What is the Differnce between Client/Server Testing and Web Based Testing? ..

Answer / rj

CLIENT / SERVER TESTING
This type of testing usually done for 2 tier applications
(usually developed for LAN)
Here we will be having front-end and backend.

The application launched on front-end will be having forms
and reports which will be monitoring and manipulating data

E.g: applications developed in VB, VC++, Core Java, C, C++,
D2K, PowerBuilder etc.,

The backend for these applications would be MS Access, SQL
Server, Oracle, Sybase, Mysql, Quadbase

The tests performed on these types of applications would be
- User interface testing
- Manual support testing
- Functionality testing
- Compatibility testing & configuration testing
- Intersystem testing

WEB TESTING
This is done for 3 tier applications (developed for Internet
/ intranet / xtranet)
Here we will be having Browser, web server and DB server.

The applications accessible in browser would be developed in
HTML, DHTML, XML, JavaScript etc. (We can monitor through
these applications)

Applications for the web server would be developed in Java,
ASP, JSP, VBScript, JavaScript, Perl, Cold Fusion, PHP etc.
(All the manipulations are done on the web server with the
help of these programs developed)

The DBserver would be having oracle, sql server, sybase,
mysql etc. (All data is stored in the database available on
the DB server)

The tests performed on these types of applications would be
- User interface testing
- Functionality testing
- Security testing
- Browser compatibility testing
- Load / stress testing
- Interoperability testing/intersystem testing
- Storage and data volume testing
