ASPHelp - Features
The ASPHelp system possesses a large number of features designed to assist
web application development staff in the production of professional quality
HTMLHelp documenting the web application. This documentation can then be
used to reduce the number of defects present in the system by ensuring the
interface contracts defined are followed.
Documentation items include the ability to:
- Document functions and
subroutines in the script
- Link to documentation produced
- Fully define the default
behavior for HTML elements and redirections.
- Optionally include the
contents of the Subroutines and Functions that are part of the ASP file
- Describe cookie keys and their purpose.
- Describe input form parameters.
- Describe input Query String parameters.
- Describe generic input request parameters. Generic parameters allow
the developer to read the value of a parameter from either the Forms,
QueryString, or Cookies collections without specifying which
collection. Bugs can often surface when the a page can be accessed
both by GET and POST, but the page developer has not taken appropriate
action to guard against duplicate parameters.
- Describe session variables.
- Describe project specific session object names.
- Describe project specific default property names for the custom session
- Describe application variables.
- Describe redirections in the output.
- Describe anchors.
- Describe anchor variables
- Describe forms, and their destination.
- Describe HTML form variables.
- Optionally include the source for a page.
- Optionally recurse into
include files, and optionally include their source
- Specify the physical location
of virtual include folders
- Describe image map areas and
associated query string variables
- Describe frames and inline frames
- Describe image maps
- Document static HTML and SHTML
files in addition to ASP files
- Describe project specific copyright notices.
- Describe project specific project file descriptions.
- Describe the purpose of the web page.
- Optionally launch the compiled help file
- Optionally include only the tags defined in the file. This option
allows the information architect the ability to define the interface to
the page without having the code present.
- Determine which of the interface elements (e.g. cookies, forms,
QueryStrings, etc) are to be included in the compiled help.
- Provide hyper links in the redirections, anchors, and forms listings to
allow the user the ability to navigate a potential path of
execution. The option is designed to facilitate the work of the QA
professional in determining appropriate test cases for the web
