Software Testing Course
Within Software development life cycle, one of the important phase is software testing or validation. This phase confirms whether application or product under test, behaves the way it should be. Therefore, this phase is backbone which gives accuracy and confidence to application under test.
Imagine a scenario where user starts using application / product and s/he is not able to get required functionality Or s/he does not like user interface Or every page takes long time to load Or s/he observes security breach in the application, what would be next step by user? S/he would just move on to next similar application, which would fulfil his/her requirement. In today’s world, no one wants to wait for few days/months to get application corrected, to start using the same. This means you would lose on your business. Therefore, software testing plays a vital role in overall development cycle. Our Software testing course in Pune, exactly address the philosophy and details of Software testing.
What is Quality? It means meeting customer requirements. How do you ensure software has met customer requirements? This verification and validation of software is done during testing phase. As part of verification process, documents, design, code/programs are verified using methods like inspection, review, walkthroughs, etc. As this is static method, there won’t be any execution of code. But validation is a dynamic process which checks whether software meets client requirement, by executing the code. Therefore, validation is done after verification. Defects should be identified as early as possible in testing cycle.
Software testing can be categorised into various types based on “How” and “What” to test. If testing is drilled down in terms of “How to test?”, then types of testing are:
|Black Box testing||Alpha testing||Static testing||Acceptance testing|
|White Box testing||Beta Testing||Dynamic testing||Regression testing|
|Adhoc testing||Positive testing||System testing||Sanity testing|
|Exploratory testing||Negative testing||Integration testing||Smoke testing|
Testing types, with respect to “What to test?” are:
Functional testing – This verifies whether developed functionality is as per customer requirements. Any disparity is considered as defect, which should be fixed to test it again.
Non-Functional Testing – This includes validation of various non-functional parameters like Usability testing, Load/performance testing, Stress/volume testing, Security testing, Installation testing, etc.
Software testing life cycle includes various phases:
Defects are variance from requirement specifications. Defects are raised when expected and actual test results do not match. Defect tracking process starts once defect is identified and it passes through various phases, before defect gets fixed and new version of software is released. Defect is categorised in terms of its severity and priority. Generally, severity-wise defects are categorised as Critical, Major, Minor, and Cosmetic. While priority-wise defects are categorised as High, Medium and Low.
All above steps/phases are initially done manually and therefore called as Manual testing. It generally takes high human efforts and elapsed time to complete testing. Therefore, in case of repetitive testing of application functionality, its always recommended to go for Automation testing. As automation testing is done by executing scripts, it takes very less time and effort, compared to manual testing. This enables faster time to market. Generally, regression testing is good candidate for automation testing, as its executed in multiple cycles. Automation testing gives high accuracy and hence high quality and reliable.
Automation testing generally requires programming knowledge and tool expertise. There are various tools which helps in automation testing, viz. Selenium, JMeter, QTP, LoadRunner, etc.
Career as Software tester:
As explained, software testing is key phase in any software development exercise. Therefore, testers are always in demand, as no one wants to get defective software in market and ruin their brand. Software tester should have mindset of finding defects and achieve 100% quality of product.
Going forward, as industry moves towards automation, it would be imperative to upgrade skills to automation and get testing done faster and better.
