Abstract [en]

Web browser plays an important part of internet experience and JavaScript is the most popular programming language as a client side script to build an active and advance end user experience.  The script engine which executes JavaScript needs to interact with web browser to get access to its DOM elements and other host objects. Browser from host side needs to initialize the script engine and dispatch script source code to the engine side.

This thesis studies the interaction between the script engine and its host browser. The shell where the engine address to make calls towards outside is called hosting layer. This report  mainly discussed what operations could appear in this layer and designed testing cases to validate  if the browser is robust and reliable regarding hosting operations.
