Abstract: Nowadays, millions of millions of information has been uploaded through the web in different specialization. Such huge amount of information makes difficult for the normal search methods to be effective. This paper discusses search engine in general perception,refinement of search, software components of search engine and finally the detailed way of working of a search engine by an extensive modular architecture of the Search engine and how it can be improved through software testing. The paper suggests new technique for the search engine based on the object oriented architecture. Procedural oriented, structural oriented and object oriented are the general techniques, which are adopted to solve the given statements of the problem. Out of these three techniques, object oriented techniques are broadly used, as they better describe the objects and flexibility to maintain. This paper attempts to demonstrate the power of object oriented software testing at class level, a disciplined approach to improve the product search engine, which is very powerful tool of knowledge engineering and management. In this paper the modular architecture of a search engine is analyzed in an extensive manner with its working. The object oriented technique is analyzed to implement the Search Query Processing class of the search engine. A technique based on class specification is also developed that can be used to generate the test cases at class level testing for object oriented programs. The paper explained how to get the best out of the Internet, working of a search engine in general perception, refinement of search, software components of search engine and finally the detailed way of working of a search engine by an extensive modular architecture of the Search engine. Based on this technique a test model is also developed for generation of test cases. The actual intended behavior is represented by the test model because it is based on the class specification. Although this paper includes discussion of all the test cases of the most crucial class of the search engine, the rest of the classes need to be tested and improvised by the methodology discussed in the paper. Through this paper an attempt is made to implement Object Oriented Approach to improve the performance of the search engine class.
