Automatic navigation model extraction for web load testing

Kara, İsmihan Refika
Web pages serve a huge number of internet users in nearly every area. An adequate testing is needed to address the problems of web domains for more efficient and accurate services. We present an automated tool to test web applications against execution errors and the errors occured when many users connect the same server concurrently. Our tool, called NaMoX, attains the clickables of the web pages, creates a model exerting depth first search algorithm. NaMoX simulates a number of users, parses the developed model, and tests the model by branch coverage analysis. We have performed experiments on five web sites. We have reported the response times when a click operation is eventuated. We have found 188 errors in total. Quality metrics are extracted and this is applied to the case studies.


Using Google analytics, card sorting and search statistics for getting insights about metu website’s new design: a case study
Dalcı, Mustafa; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2011)
websites are one of the most popular and quickest way for communicating with users and providing information. Measuring the effectiveness of website, availability of information on website and information architecture on users‟ minds have become key issues. Moreover, using these insights on website‟s new design process will make the process more user-centered. v There is no consensus on how to define web site effectiveness, which dimensions need to be used for the evaluation of these web sites and which pro...
Sentiment-focused web crawling
Vural, Avni Güral; Karagöz, Pınar; Cambazoğlu, Berkant Barla; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
The advent of Web 2.0 has led to an increase in the amount of sentimental content available in the Web. Such content is often found in social media web sites in the form of product reviews, user comments, testimonials, messages in discussion forums, status updates, and personal blogs as well as in other forms, including opinions in personal pages, news articles, and product descriptions. The analysis of sentimental content has a number of important applications, most important being web search, contextual a...
An Approach for automated verification of web applications using model checking and replaying the scenarios of counterexamples
Paçin, Yudum; Betin Can, Aysu; Department of Information Systems (2015)
The increase in the use of web applications in various domains, raised the importance of the methodologies for verification of web applications. We propose a framework for the verification of web applications with respect to access control, link consistency and reachability properties using model checking. In this approach, users define the properties by explanatory guidance of user interface. The execution traces that lead to a property violation is translated to a script that automates the replaying of th...
Web service testing for domain specific web service discovery framework
Utku, Selma; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
The reliability of web services is important for both users and other service providers, with which they are in interaction. Thus, to guarantee reliability of the web services that are invoked and integrated at runtime, automatic testing of web services is needed. In web service testing, different test cases for web services are generated. The most important issue is to generate the most appropriate value for input parameters of web services at runtime. In this thesis, we developed a method for automatic we...
Web market analysis : static, dynamic, and content evaluation
Erdal, Feride; Arifoğlu, Ali; Department of Information Systems (2012)
Importance of web services increases as the technology improves and the need for the challenging e-commerce strategies increases. This thesis focuses on web market analysis of web sites by evaluating from the perspectives of static, dynamic and content. Firstly, web site evaluation methods and web analytic tools are introduced. Then evaluation methodology is described from three perspectives. Finally, results obtained from the evaluation of 113 web sites are presented as well as their correlations.
