Stateful testing
When you use a Web-enabled application to set a value, does the server respond correctly later on?

Privilege testing
What happens when the everyday user tries to access a control that is authorized only for adminstrators?

Speed testing
Is the Web-enabled application taking too long to respond?

Boundary Test
Boundary tests are designed to check a program's response to extreme input values. Extreme output values are generated by the input values. It is important to check that a program handles input values and output results correctly at the lower and upper boundaries. Keep in mind that you can create extreme boundary results from non-extreme input values. It is essential to analyze how to generate extremes of both types. In addition. sometime you know that there is an intermediate variable involved in processing. If so, it is useful to determine how to drive that one through the extremes and special conditions such as zero or overflow condition.

Boundary timing testing
What happens when your Web-enabled application request times out or takes a really long time to respond?

Regression testing
Did a new build break an existing function? Repeat testing after changes for managing risk relate to product enhancement.
A regression test is performed when the tester wishes to see the progress of the testing process by performing identical tests before and after a bug has been fixed. A regression test allows the tester to compare expected test results with the actual results.
Regression testing's primary objective is to ensure that all bug free features stay that way. In addition, bugs which have been fixed once should not turn up again in subsequent program versions.
Regression testing: After every software modification or before next release, we repeat all test cases to check if fixed bugs are not show up again and new and existing functions are all working correctly.
Regression testing is used to confirm that fixed bugs have, in fact, been fixed and that new bugs have not been introduced in the process, and that features that were proven correctly functional are intact. Depending on the size of a project, cycles of regression testing may be perform once per milestone or once per build. Some bug regression testing may also be performed during each acceptance test cycle, focusing on only the most important bugs. Regression tests can be automated.
CONDITIONS DURING WHICH REGRESSION TESTS MAY BE RUN
Issue fixing cycle. Once the development team has fixed issues, a regression test can be run t ovalidate the fixes. Tests are based on the step-by-step test cases that were originally reported:
• If an issue is confirmed as fixed, then the issue report status should be changed to Closed.
• If an issue is confirmed as fixed, but with side effects, then the issue report status should be changed to Closed. However, a new issue should be filed to report the side effect.
• If an issue is only partially fixed, then the issue report resolution should be changed back to Unfixed, along with comments outlining the outstanding problems

Open-status regression cycle. Periodic regression tests may be run on all open issue in the issue-tracking database. During this cycle, issue status is confirmed either the report is reproducible as is with no modification, the report is reproducible with additional comments or modifications, or the report is no longer reproducible
Closed-fixed regression cycle. In the final phase of testing, a full-regression test cycle should be run to confirm the status of all fixed-closed issues.
Feature regression cycle. Each time a new build is cut or is in the final phase of testing depending on the organizational procedure, a full-regression test cycle should be run to confirm that the proven correctly functional features are still working as expected.

Q:How do you find an object in an GUI map?
The GUI Map Editor is been provided with a Find and Show Buttons.
To find a particular object in the GUI Map file in the application, select the object and click the Show window. This blinks the selected object.
To find a particular object in a GUI Map file click the Find button, which gives the option to select the object. When the object is selected, if the object has been learned to the GUI Map file it will be focused in the GUI Map file.

Q:What different actions are performed by find and show button?
To find a particular object in the GUI Map file in the application, select the object and click the Show window. This blinks the selected object.
To find a particular object in a GUI Map file click the Find button, which gives the option to select the object. When the object is selected, if the object has been learned to the GUI Map file it will be focused in the GUI Map file.

Q:How do you identify which files are loaded in the GUI map?
The GUI Map Editor has a drop down GUI File displaying all the GUI Map files loaded into the memory.

Q:How do you modify the logical name or the physical description of the objects in GUI map?
You can modify the logical name or the physical description of an object in a GUI map file using the GUI Map Editor.

Q:When do you feel you need to modify the logical name?
Changing the logical name of an object is useful when the assigned logical name is not sufficiently descriptive or is too long.

Q:When it is appropriate to change physical description?
Changing the physical description is necessary when the property value of an object changes.



Q:How WinRunner handles varying window labels?
We can handle varying window labels using regular expressions. WinRunner uses two hidden properties in order to use regular expression in an object’s physical description. These properties are regexp_label and regexp_MSW_class.
