Areas where Testing gets affected in C/S Vs Web:
Number of potential users(clients) affecting the application(Scalability/Performance constraints)
(Web==>Browser independant) UI display(C/S -
Exploiting the client features(h/w and OS API)
Load distribution
Fat Client Vs Thin Client
Role of Client side/scripting...
The need to go for supporting language/tool specific UI/Component features(Automation)
The deployment testing requirements
Role of remoting/clustering(transfer using secure layers
The client side business logic to be tested in case of C/S

Client/Server application are quite complex b'cozmultiple dependiecies among the client, hardware and servers. When Time is limited the focus is onto the System and Integration testing.Addtionally Load/Stress and performance testing may be useful to determine the Client/Server application.

Web sites are essential for the Client/Server application with Web server and browser Client. mainly the Consider is to given the interaction between HTML pages, TCP/IP communication,Application that run in the web pages and application that run in the server side.

1. What is Expected load on the Client side.
2. What kind browser they using and what Connection speed.
3.what kind performance is required under such load

Well, in Client Server appliation testing emphasis is laid on functionality and scalability of the appliation where as in web application testing importance is given to performance of the application.

Client server testing:It is 2-tier architecture and also called thick client.
Uses User interface as front end
uses database as backend.
Here there are no urls and hyperlinks it contain only forms.
Where as in web testing:
it is 3-tier or n-tier architecture.
It is also known as thin client.
Here there are so many URLs and hyperlinks.
it is internet based and there would be many servers between.

Web based- involves viewing and manupulating data in data base- typically developed on an internet or extranet,with access restricted to passwords or other
methods- reports are difficult in web based.
* flexibility in interface design
* speed in execution
Client Server- it has MIDDLEWARE between Client and Database- real time screen updates are easier with desktop application.
* ease of deployment
* ease of software updates

Client- server applications: Application is loaded at the server. In every client machine, an exe is loaded to call this application.

Web Based application : Application is loaded at the server.but,No exe is installed at the client machine. We have to call the application through browser.

In Web Testing, you test the application with different browsers and different versions of the same browsers. Here, you would be concentrating on User Interface, Functionality and Performance of the application. In Client Server Testing, you don’t require any media/browser to test the application.

A higher degree of Security, Performance and Reliability testing is required for web based applications than client server applications because web based applications are multi user applications whereas client server applications are single user applications.

If the database is changed in client server application, the front end source code needs to be changed where as in web based, if the database changes, only the middle-ware has to be changed accordingly as client never interacts with the server directly. The business logic is @ middle-ware in web based application where as the same is at client in fat client/thin server architecture and at server in thin client/fat server architecture.

Client Server Testing:-

In client server testing test engineer are conduct the following testings:-

1.Behaviour testing(GUI TESTING)

2.Input domain testing

3.Error Handling testing

4.Backend testing

In Web testing test engineer are condut the following testings:-

1.Behaviour Testing

2.Static web testing

3.Input domain testing

5.Error handling testing

5.Frame Level testing

Testing client/server applications requires some additional techniques to handle the new effects introduced by the client/server architecture. Testing client/server systems is definitely different - but it's not "from another planet" type different. This class includes all the core testing techniques that you'll need to test any system, including systems that have a client/server design, plus the special techniques needed for client/server.
Even if you're an experienced tester you'll find some interesting and useful new ideas for testing all types of systems.So what's different about client/server? Testing client/server applications is more challenging than testing traditional systems because: 1. New kinds of things can go wrong. (Example: Data and messages can get lost in the network) 2. It’s harder to set up, execute, and check the test cases. (Example: Testing for proper responses to timeouts) 3. Regression testing is harder to automate. (Example: It’s not easy to create an automated ‘server is busy’ condition) 4. Predicting performance and scalability become critical. (Example: It seems to work fine with 10 users. But what about with 1,000 users? 10,000 users?)

Obviously some new techniques are needed to test client/server systems. Most of these apply to distributed systems of all kinds, not just the special case of a client/server architecture. So as you encounter various design permutations, “three-tiered” and so on, you’ll be able to put together an effective test plan for them.

The key to understanding how to test these systems is to understand exactly how and why each type of potential problem arises. With this insight, the testing solution will usually be obvious. So we’ll take a look at how things work, and from that we’ll develop the new testing techniques we need so go to site: http://www.testingcenter.com/t020mr…

1.Performance/load/stress is must in web application.
2.Compatibility of the browser is must in web application.
3.Security is must in web application.
