Software testing, though complex, is an integral part of any successful software project. On a high level there are basically two methods to complete the software verification & validation – Manual and Automated testing. While both types of testing are beneficial to web application development, there has been a plethora of speculation on whether software testing should be done manually or be automated. Creation of excellent software demands effective and timely quality testing; and in these times of production on the go, the debate continues on the purpose and efficiency of manual vs. automation testing. Each testing method has its pros and cons but the truth is that regardless of which side of the fence you sit on (manual vs. automated), the argument is largely irrelevant; to achieve high quality software and reduced time to market both methodologies are essential. Let’s explore the 19 key consideration…
Regression is one of the most Important yet Neglected Test Type. Let’s see what are the Regression Testing Best practices for a successful project delivery!
What do you think should be the first script in our journey to learn Selenium Automation testing? Yeah! For any web-based testing, first & foremost you need to launch a browser and open the application URL. How? Let’s learn how to launch Chrome browser using Selenium Webdriver!
Some say ‘Testing’ is not a skill set, I say Yes. It’s a ‘Mindset’! We have quite to learn from Virat Kohli, what makes up a solid Mobile App Tester?
Software Testing Levels are the different stages that enable QA team to deliver a Quality Software; Unit > Component > Integration > System > Acceptance!
As more applications move towards Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), it is imperative to at least know the basics of SOA Testing. To start with – Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a way of designing, developing, deploying, and managing enterprise systems where business needs and technical solutions are closely aligned. Let’s look at it closely…
Continuing on our tryst with Bollywood’s Karan-Arjun, let’s read about some more important duos in the field of Software Testing!
Similar to Bollywood’s Karan-Arjun Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, in Software Testing too we have multiple important duos. Let’s have a look.
Regression testing, one of the most important yet neglected Testing type. Why? Because we are bored of it. Why bored? Because we do it incorrectly or don’t follow the best practices. Most of the time it results into wasted efforts – repeated testing without any qualitative results. Have you ever tried to revamp your regression approach? Or to actually work on the challenges faced?
Manual & Automation Testing Interview series – we don’t segregate questions in categories like Manual Testing, Selenium, Mobile Testing or HPE UFT.
QA analysts are often confronted with the same question for Mobile application Testing – Go for Manual testing or to try out new automated techniques?
Once upon a time we had a finicky client manager with no understanding of testing logic. He just wanted us [a team of 4] to execute thousands of test cases in a week, that too maintaining quality. Is it possible in any real-world? No, right? There was a tiff between the Test Manager and Client Manager and that’s when I got the real-time exposure to Risk-based Testing, a win-win idea!
SDET, expands to Software Development Engineer in Test OR Software Design Engineer in Test. Don’t get confused. In simple terms – the SDET is a tester and also a developer. Haha! Confused? I too felt the same. No one is crystal clear about the SDET role – I guess not even an SDET himself/herself 🙂 a fancy word adopted by Microsoft and every one going Gaga o
The world is driven by beliefs. It may be in God or Technology. Over a period of time every society lay down a set of philosophies or values for better organization & operation. Similarly, any technology has its own fundamental principles which have been proven right as the time elapsed. ‘Software Testing’ is no different – it also has a set of 7 fundamental principles that are proven right over the time.
