This report gives an overview of the actual situation in the area of Web application testing. The approach used in this report is to start with the common principles of testing, known from conventional software engineering, and then compare these principles to the current practice in Web application testing. The differences and similarities between conventional software testing and Web testing are examined to define the aspects unique for Web testing and to find possible measures to improve the current situation.
