April 21st, 2015 — Basics of Software testing, Testing Methodologies, Types of testing
I was just teaching one of these days in my class, and a question came to me – “Can regression testing be done manually?”
I answered the question and we moved on in the class. Everything seemed OK, but somehow this question nagged me for quite a while later. Over the many batches this question comes multiple times in various different ways. Some of them are: Continue reading →

So…do you really think it will take that huge amount of time to test, what you call system testing, even after spending lot of efforts on integration testing?
The client we recently approached for the project was not convinced about the estimation we provided for each testing effort.
I had to chime in with an example –
Mike, I would like to elaborate our efforts and importance of system testing with an example.
Shoot, he replied. Continue reading →

Note: If you missed the first part of this post please read it: Why Documentation is important in testing?
As I mention in my earlier post, in general, understanding about software testing documentation is “It can be done only by the person who has free time”. We need to change this mindset, and then only we can leverage documentation power on our projects.
It’s not that we don’t know how to do the documentation right. We just don’t think it’s important.
Everyone must have standard templates for all the kinds of documentation starting from Test strategy, test Plan, Test cases, and Test data to Bug report. These are just to follow some standards (CMMI, ISO etc.) but, when it comes to actual implementation how many of these documents are really used by us? We just need to synchronize our quality process with documentation standards and other process in an organization.
