Abstract

Cloud computing and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) received significant attention recently. Testing SaaS applications is important because many mission-critical applications will be deployed on the cloud. However, to the best of our knowledge, testing framework designed specifically for SaaS applications is not developed. The issue of testing the scalability of SaaS applications remains untouched. This paper discusses the unique features and challenges in testing SaaS applications, and proposes scalability metrics that can be used to test the scalability of SaaS applications.
