How to test the session timeout of a web application

on Mon Oct 04, 2010 5:08 pm
Hi friends,

I want to test the session time out functionality of a web application. If the user does not refresh or request a page within the time-out period, the session ends & an alert will show. when the user clicks on the alert message its redirected to the login page.. How can i check the session is ending if the user remains idle within the time-out period..

pls advice.tnx in advance

If you know the Timing of one User session in any web application,
prepare a script like
1) Login into specific web application.
2) Sleep that script for (some time) > timing of one User session.
3) Then perform some action on the page.
4) Observe the response of that action.
5) Application should show alert. If it is not then probably session is not ending proeperly.

If you don't know the timing of one User session and it is not mentioned in the application explictly, you can not test Session Time-out functionality.
