The World Wide Web has a great impact in the world of computing. Testing of web applications is becoming more challenging task with the tremendous growth, distributed nature, dynamic nature and heterogeneity of web applications. With the growing complexity and usage of web applications, there is a need of rigorous testing techniques for producing reliable applications. Model-based testing (MBT) is a promising paradigm for generating test cases from models of the system under test (SUT).

The focus of this study is to present a survey of model based testing techniques with specific reference to web applications. Existing literature has been surveyed using a systematic literature review (SLR) approach. Applicability of MBT for web applications have been studied, comparison of existing approaches has been presented in the study, finally strengths and limitations of existing approaches have been highlighted.
