All testers know that most applications come in 3 basic layers, namely UI, Application, and Database. And when all these layers are chained together, what you get is a functioning web-application. The Open Systems Interconnection (or OSI) model is a categorization of the layers of a datagram packet, from physical all the way to, for example, a web application.  When we do firewall, we are often working in Layer 2 or Layer 3, which is much simpler — MAC addresses, IP addresses, packet headers, etc., these are easy to extract and work with.  However, all the way up at Layer 7, the content is completely dynamic, consisting of HTTP headers, binary data, and a mess of standards, so filtering on this content can sometimes border on the impossible. There is also protection of the web application through web application firewalls and security scanners. Read More…

Day-to-day, there are lot many mobile applications getting released to market, and its success depends on consumer’s acceptance. If the mobile application is not efficient enough to satisfy consumer’s requirements, it’s very common to switch to other similar application available in the market. Also, another reason that consumer switch to other applications is that, the cost – we have applications that are cost-free and cost-applied. If the basic necessities are fulfilled by cost-free application, then it’s more likely for the consumer to opt for a cost-free application rather than to go with costly one. Apart from these, there are many other reasons why the mobile applications are non-competitive and fail in the market. The Hidden secret to the success of any Mobile application is the strong Strategy. To proceed, we will try to first understand: what is Mobile Application Testing, importance, challenges, etc…Read More…
