what is the difference between the Website and Web application? For eg: facebook, twitter, myntra, onlinesbi etc...this are all website are web application.
The difference is in an individual's perception. It all depends on what you think. Many would say that Facebook is a web application, whereas others would say it is a website.
For example services like the ATM software, payment gateway, email service can all be thought of a web application. But if you really get into the depth you will see that they have webpages built which execute in web browsers and run on technology that is used for developing and executing web services, which by definition according to me makes them a website.
So, the true answer is IT DEPENDS on how you look at it... ;)
what is the difference between the Website and Web application?
From a QA point of view, there is no difference.
Some application development tools/environments have these as different choices, depending on the tasks involved in the project (see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd547590(v=vs.110).aspx)
A very basic explanation
- Website is just a web page where most of the time testing will be of broken links and broken images and more if SEO is being processed on/for that website
- Web application is a application where there has to be more work from the testing point of view for example applying various types of testing
