Static DOM event dependency analysis for testing web applications

Chungha Sung, Markus Kusano, Nishant Sinha, Chao Wang
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 24th ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Foundations of Software Engineering - FSE 2016  
In this work, we propose the first constraint-based declarative program analysis procedure for computing dependencies over program variables as well as event-handler functions of the various DOM elements  ...  We implemented the method in a software tool named JSDEP and evaluated it in ARTEMIS, a platform for automated web application testing.  ...  and data dependencies but also the new DOM-event dependencies. • We propose a new method for leveraging our static dependency analysis results in an automated web application testing tool, ARTEMIS, to  ...

Virtual DOM coverage for effective testing of dynamic web applications

Yunxiao Zou, Zhenyu Chen, Yunhui Zheng, Xiangyu Zhang, Zebao Gao
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis - ISSTA 2014  
In this paper, we propose Virtual DOM (V-DOM) Coverage, a novel criterion, for effective web application testing.  ...  With static analysis, we first aggregate all the DOM objects that may be produced by a piece of server script to construct a V-DOM tree.  ...  We develop a static analysis technique on server scripts to construct the V-DOM trees for a web application. 3.  ...

Arie van Deursen, Ali Mesbah, Alex Nederlof
2015 Science of Computer Programming  
In this paper we review five years of research in the field of automated crawling and testing of web applications.  ...  Based on that we identify the main challenges and future directions of crawl-based testing of web applications.  ...  While static analysis of client and server code of web applications can provide valuable insight in their dependability, the highly dynamic nature of today's client-side (JavaScript) code makes dynamic  ...

Model-based Automated Testing of JavaScript Web Applications via Longer Test Sequences [article]

Pengfei Gao, Fu Song, Taolue Chen, Yao Zeng, Ting Su
2019 arXiv   pre-print
A variety of dynamic analysis techniques for JavaScript Web applications have been proposed, but they are limited in either coverage or scalability.  ...  However, it is challenging to ensure the correctness and reliability of Web applications written in JavaScript, due to their dynamic and event-driven features.  ...  Static Analysis. Given the HTML/JavaScript source file(s) of an application, this component computes the DOM event dependencies.  ...

Research Issues in the Automated Testing of Ajax Applications [chapter]

Arie van Deursen, Ali Mesbah
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Based on an analysis of the current challenges in testing Ajax, we formulate directions for future research.  ...  In this paper, we evaluate to what extent automated testing can be used to address these Ajax dependability problems.  ...  Unfortunately, the state-based, asynchronous nature of Ajax in combination with the limited possibilities for static analysis of rich Internet applications, pose an increasing threat to dependability.  ...

Modeling the HTML DOM and browser API in static analysis of JavaScript web applications

Simon Holm Jensen, Magnus Madsen, Anders Møller
2011 Proceedings of the 19th ACM SIGSOFT symposium and the 13th European conference on Foundations of software engineering - SIGSOFT/FSE '11  
From this, we present the first static analysis that is capable of reasoning about the flow of control and data in modern JavaScript applications that interact with the HTML DOM and browser API.  ...  Developers of JavaScript web applications have little tool support for catching errors early in development.  ...  The latter allows us to test the analysis on web applications that exploit cutting edge functionality supported by the newest browsers.  ...

Behnaz Hassanshahi, Hyunjun Lee, Paddy Krishnan, Jörn Güy Suß
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Even though a lot of effort has been invested in analyzing client-side web applications during the past decade, the existing tools often fail to deal with the complexity of modern JavaScript applications  ...  However, from an attacker point of view, the client side of such web applications can reveal invaluable information about the server side.  ...  To analyze modern web applications that heavily use complex libraries for which static analysis is difficult, our feedbackdirected analysis refines the static analysis results using the runtime execution  ...
