About Page

This page contains an input field and a search button.

There will always be the same number of results returned.

Cookies are used for the page and much of this page functionality concerns the cookies.

Three Cookies are used:

Use the Browser Dev Tools to explore and model the cookies used, also to understand the server side interaction.

Automated Execution

Most GUI automated execution tools allow setting and amending the cookies, so this is a useful page to explore that functionality.

The form has no complicated JavaScript and is submitted directly to the server.

Minimal synchronisation will be required because the page is populated by the server.

Exploratory Testing

There are many comments about this page that you might make to the developer.

Since the page is populated by the server you might choose to engage in HTTP level testing in addition to the GUI level testing.
