The recent development of Web Applications has generated the need for a new area of software testing. Although web applications share characteristics with procedural, object-oriented, distributed, and parallel programming paradigms; web applications differ from traditional applications in respect to new program units (pages, frames, languages) and new control structures (events, links, calls across pages and frames). As a result, there has arisen the need for a new software testing model. My research included studying advanced applications based on the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform and working on designing a model that will be useful in testing coverage of test cases for individual features.
