GMU Software Engineering Seminar Series<http://cs.gmu.edu/~smalek/seminar.html> *Speaker:* Lima Beauvais *Title:* Atomic Section Analysis Tool (AtSAT) *Date/Time:* Friday, Today @ 12pm *Location:* 4201, Engineering Building *Abstract:* Testing the presentation layer of web applications requires novel methodologies. In general analyzing, modeling, and testing web applications and their three main layers creates challenges. However the testing techniques used for traditional software can be applied to the data computation and data representation layers. This talk discusses the Atomic Section Analysis Tool (AtSAT), which helps to mechanize the process of testing the presentation layer of web applications. AtSAT is based on the proposed framework of Offutt and Wu (2009) and automates seven of the nine steps; reducing the time to apply the methodology and minimizing human errors. *Bio:* Lima Beauvais earned an MS degree in Instructional Technology at Bloomsburg University, PA in June 2001.
