By Mike Tarrani HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on June 19, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is more than a minor update of the first edition of this highly regarded book - it's a major rewrite with added material on mobile web testing.
As in the earlier book, this one clearly shows the differences between traditional testing and web testing, which will provide QA professionals who are moving from older environments into web-based systems an orientation and direction. For new QA professionals the chapters on software testing basics, networking and web application components provide a solid foundation. The chapter on mobile web application platforms is unique to this book, and adds true value. Other core material includes test planning, and a sample application and test plan to add realistic scenarios to the material.
Web-specific test advice encompasses UI, functional, server-side, database, help, installation, compatibility, security and performance testing. These cover all facets of the test process and associated procedures in a web-centric environment. Additional chapters include using test scripts, testing mobile web applications, and web testing tools.
While the core content is on the mark and accurate, the appendices are as invaluable. These include a test plan template, weekly status report template, error analysis checklist (with error examples), UI test-case design guidelines (common keyboard navigation/shortcut matrix and mouse action matrix web), test-case design guideline: input boundary and validation matrix, display compatibility test matrix, and browser/OS configuration matrix.
If you test web systems this is the most complete book you can read, and it is destined to attain the same 'classic' status as the first edition.

Very much my mistake - should have checked the publish date.

I'm sure it's still got some valid information but unfortunately it was published in 2003 - 4 years before the iPhone and as such doesn't really account for modern technology.

I would not recommend anyone to buy this unless they had a specific requirement for a historical perspective.

Internet Explorer 6? Palm III? LYCOS? Old technology for a book that seems to give a false pre-tense that it contains new software tehnologies. Buyer beware.

I borrowed this book's first version and liked it very much. Since I can't find the first version anywhere, I have to buy this new version. I wanted to buy at Amazon in order to save my time driving to bookstore, plus it is cheaper here. I was worried if this book has the sections I need which were in first version. This --Search inside this book-- is superb!! At first, I did not realize it has the whole "contents" list. Then I realized if I click on "next", it will show you the complete "contents". I saw the chapter that I need and ready to buy it. Very happy with this feature--Search inside this book. There is no doubt this book is superb for QA engineer.
