Question: What is the Compatibility View in IE?
Definition: Browser compatibility tests - is finding pages that are not working or not working correctly in some web browsers

If you are using IE8, IE9, IE10, or IE11 sometimes you can receive a message that your browser is incompatible, this is most likely because your browser is set in Compatibility mode. This mode tells your browser to treat web sites as if it was using IE7. Sometimes websites don't look like they were designed —images might not appear, menus might be out of place, and text could be displayed incorrectly. This might be caused by a compatibility problem between Internet Explorer and the site. Sometimes this can be fixed by adding (or removing) the site to your Compatibility View list.

Question: How Compatibility View in IE works?
IE using different engines for different sites
IE attempts to find the best compatibility mode before opening the page with the newest version of its engine, IE follows the flow:
Check meta tag in head if no - use some internal logic to determine what engine to implement.
The example: meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"
Unlike IE7 mode, Emulate IE7 mode respects the directive.
For many web sites, this is the preferred compatibility mode.
Use the http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" meta tag in head for the latest version of IE.

Question: Please tell all you know about testing web services.
There are multiple non-functional requirements expected from the web services:
  • Performance
  • Scalability
  • Extensibility
  • Reliability
    Types of testing that applied to web services:
  • Unit testing
  • Functional testing of web services
  • Integration testing of web services
  • Performance testing
    The purpose of functional testing of a web service is to ensure that the expected business functionality is provided correctly by the web service.
    Integration testing of web services
    Web services are integrated with multiple components such as brokers or service coordinators.
    Web services Integration Testing. The intent of Web services Integration Testing is to expose faults in the interactions between web service and other software components, modules and functions. To verify that integrations do not break the system.
    Performance testing of web services
    As defined on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_performance_testing), performance testing is in general testing that determines how a system performs in terms of responsiveness and stability under a particular work load.
    Web service performance test planning includes:
  • Identify the expected performance requirements
  • Analyze web service real world working scenarios
  • Identify message volume, size, and transmission rate
    This includes load and stress testing the web service as well as measuring the performance under various conditions. Apache JMeter http://jmeter.apache.org/ is a good open source testing tool which can be used for performance testing of web services.
