Regression testing for a User Interface in a Web application

Filed under:

A good part of my work is targetted at developing tools for W3C day to day operations; the most recent ones have been WBS, an application allowing to create and edit questionnaires, to answer them and to collect and present their results, and IPP (standing for Implementation of the Patent Policy), a set of tools to make the application of W3C Patent Policy smoother for everybody.

As I’m more or less convinced of the benefits of having a test suite for any code I write – hey, remember, I’m supposed to lead the Quality Assurance effort at W3C -, I’ve tried to add tests for most of my code as I write it; one part of the code remains pretty much untested, though: the User Interface.

Tada ! I’m hereby inaugurating a new blog… Although I already have one (OK, two), I don’t like to use it for anything too closely related to work; first, since I’m telecommuting from home, I prefer keeping well separated my private life and my work life (granted, starting this blog at 1am my time is probably not the best way to accomplish this); secondly, my private blog’s audience is not likely to be too interested in the kind of things I’m hoping to blog about; finally, my private blog is perfect for writing in French, but I prefer writing in English for anything that relates to my work in a way or another.
