Developing web applications can be optimised to make the Test cycle quicker and more thorough. The HTML mark up - if written with automation in mind - will make automated test vastly easier to write and maintain, allowing builds to be more robust and code to be released more frequently with a higher quality. Furthermore, adopting a defensive approach to data validation and processing will lead to much more secure applications.
Testing is an often under-appreciated part of the software life cycle. Timelines will shift, there will be delays with the development and the testing phase is the part the suffers. Here we have compiled a list of tips to help increase the productivity of testing and to help avoid releasing bugs into production and keep a high level of quality in the software released.
