Abstract

Testing is a time consuming and expensive activity in the development of hypertext applications. The management of the test process must ensure that the requirements of testing are satisfied but at a minimum cost. Test adequacy criteria can provide objective measures to the extent that a test meets the testing requirements. However, existing software test adequacy criteria are not directly applicable to the test of hypertext applications. This paper discusses three levels of the requirements of testing hypertext applications. The first level is the validation of the information contained in each node of the hypertext and the correctness of its display on the screen. The second is the verification of the correctness of implementing links between the nodes. The third is the evaluation of system structures for testing usability. For
