Innovative WebSite Mapping Tool

Key Points

Presentation Abstract

The eValid Test Enabled Web Browser incorporates all of the main functions of a complete WebSite Test Environment in a convenient, easy-to-use patent-pending package. eValid capabilities include functional testing and verification, detailed WebSite timing and tuning, load generation with full-browser and partial-browser playbacks, and site analysis with the built-in WebSite spider search and filter function.

This talk describes how the eValid system is architected, how it is used through the set of built-in menus, and how it can be applied to produce reliable, effective tests of WebSites. Specific examples of WebSite testing are given.
