Testing web applications
What are some of the best methods to test web apps?

I'm currently working on a university project where i'll be building two web applications; one built in PHP and one in ASP and comparing them. I was wondering what methods people use to test out web applications; Do you take into account issues like time taken connecting to the database? Script execution time? Record insert time? If so how would I go about measuring these? Any help on this matter appreciated.

Doesn't the project have any inbuilt test criteria?

If you switch on debugging in PHP and ASP, you should see outputs that details such things as page generation time, database connections, etc. What you need to do is to figure out beforehand what the criteria of the tests should be, then compare the two applications running on similar machines with the same backend.
