Recently web applications have grown rapidly and have become more and more complex. As web applications become more complex, there is a growing concern about their quality. But very little attentions are paid to web applications testing and there are scarce of the practical research efforts and tools. Thus, in this paper, we suggest the automated testing methods for web applications. For this, the methods generate an analysis model by analyzing the HTML codes and the source codes. Then test targets are identified and test cases are extracted from the analysis model. In addition, test drivers and test data are generated automatically, and then they are deployed on the web server to establish a testing environment. Through this process we can automate the testing processes for web applications, besides the automated methods makes our approach more effective than the existing research efforts.
