Web and Application Software Testing
Web Site Testing
The deployment of web technology in sophisticated software has created a major need for rapid, effective QA testing solutions. ApTest is at the forefront of this development, combining expertise in the area of web technologies with extensive experience with manual and automated techniques for testing them.
We offer manual and automated Web site testing, including:
Technology Focus Areas
- HTML and XHTML
- XML and the Document Object Model
- XML-RPC, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI
- WAP Standards (WML, WMLScript, WTP, WDP, etc.)
- HTTP & SSL/TLS
Application Software Testing
ApTest is widely experienced in application software testing, including:
- GUI application testing for Windows and UNIX
- CD-ROM testing
- XML-based application testing
- Java application testing
- N-tier client-server application testing
- WAP application testing
This expertise includes:
- Performance testing
- Functional testing
- Compatibility testing (OSs and platforms)
- Regression testing
- Unit testing
ApTest has partnered with leading vendors of automated application test tools: Hewlett Packard and Borland. Our staff has extensive experience in applying these tools to software from the Desktop to the Enterprise.
System Software Testing
Another ApTest specialty is the development of tools for testing the conformance of systems to Open Systems specifications. Our projects in this area include:
- SPEC1170 (Single UNIX) test suite (sockets, STREAMS, curses, etc.)
- X11R5 test suite
- Motif test suite
- POSIX 1003.1c (Realtime) test suite
- Thread-safety test suite for X Windows
ApTest has extensive experience with developing test suites for middleware, particularly ORBs and other Object Oriented solutions. This includes functional, performance, and interoperability verification testing.
This unique expertise makes ApTest ideally qualified in design and implementation of tests for ORBs and other distributed middleware.
ApTest designed and implemented the VSOrb and VSJOrb test suites for the ORB branding program operated by the OMG and The Open Group. Covering the C, C++, and Java bindings to the ORB Core as well as testing for IIOP conformance, these test suites have provided ApTest with industry-leading technology and expertise for testing object-oriented middleware.
Development Tools Testing
ApTest has developed a number of test tools for verifying the conformance of development tools to object file standards such as ELF and DWARF. Our products such as the PowerPC Embedded ABI Test Suite provide a unique base of sophisticated technology for verifying the formats produced by development tool sets. This technology is available for license or porting to other architectures/standards.
