Special Session 4: Web Applications of Testing and Formal Verification


Overview and Scope
With prevalence of Internet and rapid development of some technology such as distributed computing, component-based developing and Web services, Web applications have been integrated into many business critical systems and public transaction processing systems. It becomes increasingly important to ensure the quality of Web applications.
Two of the most fundamental approaches to quality-assurance of software are formal verification and testing. However, a Web application can be considered as a distributed system with multi-tier architecture, it possesses its own unique features such as heterogeneous nature, dynamic behaviors, diversity of connection, and variability in control flow and so on. These features bring new challenges to verification and testing of Web applications. To handle these features, the approaches to verification and testing for traditional applications have to be extended, or some new approaches need to be proposed. Therefore, this special session aims to bring together both researchers and practitioners from the academia and industry to share their ideas and experience. The topics of this session include but are not limited to:
