Continuing on my pursuit to find some more less-known facts about the booming App Industry…
What’s your strategy & approach to career development? Already planned it? Or still planning? You can surely utilize some industry-proven techniques, right? Similarly ‘Software Testing’ is also a process which involves strategy, approach, proper planning & using the best techniques. But before jumping on to these terminologies, first & foremost – Test Strategy & Test Plan are actual documents whereas Test Approach & Test Technique are conceptual.

Which was the first App ever? How big is the App industry? What was Steve Job’s role in shaping the ‘App Store’? Let’s look at some of the less-known facts about the booming App Industry!
In our last post “UFTBasics #6: Object Identification via Mandatory & Assistive properties”, we briefed about how to identify objects in an application using their ‘properties’. The next obvious step is ‘How do you extract the ‘attribute-value’ pair for an object’s properties? This is where “Object Spy” comes to rescue!
This topic may seem simple to many, but despite of hundreds of web articles – Smoke, Sanity, Retesting & Regression are the most misunderstood topics in Software Testing. There is enormous amount of literature on the subject, but most of them are confusing. The following article makes an attempt to address the confusion. Before understanding these terminologies, first & foremost you need to understand the concept of Software Build.
How do you ensure test coverage? – One of the most common interview question. After all, client doesn’t want anything skipped in testing & then face the embarrassment of end-user failure in live application. What’s the basis for the Test coverage? Yeah! Requirements – functional, technical & non-functional – every single requirement needs to be tested. What if by mistake the Test team over-looked one of the requirement & didn’t write test cases for it? How will a Test Manager or Client come to know about it? ‘Requirement Traceability Matrix’!
Continuing on our previous articles – Comprehensive list of Software Testing Types | Agile, Acceptance, Beta & Ad-hoc are NOT the ‘Testing Types’ and Understanding different ‘Types of Software Testing’ (part I), let’s look at some other important Testing types. Before we proceed, reiterating the fact that please go through the basics “Attention! Get your facts clear before facing an interview!” to clarify most of the doubts about different Test terminologies.
Continuing on our previous article – Comprehensive list of Software Testing Types | Agile, Acceptance, Beta & Ad-hoc are NOT the ‘Testing Types’, let’s deep dive into the world of different Testing Types. (Hope you have gone through the basics “Attention! Get your facts clear before facing an interview!” to clarify most of the doubts about different Test terminologies.
Types of Software Testing define the different aspects of the software which you are going to cover as part of your Test efforts, i.e. the objective. Will it be only Functional? Or are you going to measure the system performance as well? What about the database schema? What if the Banking application you are testing is secure or not? Will it work on Mobiles as well? There are numerous Testing Types one can opt for now-a-days, for e.g. Functional, Security, Performance, Compatibility Testing, Database Testing, etc.
The web has seen a dramatic change over the past few years with mobile becoming a big part of the overall experience. Test automation is a key enabler for Agile software development and subsequently for continuous integration and delivery. Automated tests are very useful to test your app “while you sleep”. Many software companies are suddenly challenged with having to provide solid test automation for mobile with its two flavors of mobile web and native apps.
As stated in previous post – Textbox, Button, Image, Checkbox, Dropdown, Hyperlink, etc. – everything which is visible in an application is known as “Object”. Automation is all about identifying these “Objects” in the application and the subsequent “Actions” to-be-performed on it. But the question is – How do you identify different ‘Objects’ in the application via HP UFT?
