September 11th, 2014 — Bug Defect tracking, Testing Concepts
In software projects, it is most important to measure the quality, cost and effectiveness of the project and the processes. Without measuring these, project can’t be completed successfully.
In today’s article we will learn with examples and graphs – Software test metrics and measurements and how to use these in software testing process.
There is a famous statement: “We can’t control things which we can’t measure”.
Here controlling the projects means, how a project manager/lead can identify the deviations from the test plan ASAP in order to react in the Continue reading →
July 10th, 2014 — Bug Defect tracking
In this tutorial you will learn what is Defect Priority, What is Defect Severity, How to set it, and Defect Triage process with many examples to understand the concept clearly.
Filing defects is a very integral part of the Software Testing Life Cycle. There are several best practices defined for effective defect reporting over the internet or in organizations. One of the important aspects of the defect life cycle on a generic level includes defect Continue reading →
June 5th, 2014 — Bug Defect tracking, GUI Testing
There are always huge responsibilities imposed on the tester to uncover any kind of bug that software has got. Irrespective of the functionality and user interface, testers can raise bugs wherever there is a non-conformance.
This article helps in understanding the importance of the functional and the cosmetic bugs. Additionally, the factors to be considered in prioritizing them are also explained here in an understandable way with some live examples for illustrations.
Bugs are inevitable in the Software development. Hence it is always very important to perform the software a through testing before it can be Continue reading →
May 15th, 2014 — Bug Defect tracking, Tester vs Developer, Testing best practices
I am not going to spare her. She has rejected 7 bugs, I reported, within last three days. I know she is using personal grudges as professional sword……
A team mate was fuming and the discussion suddenly caught fire when couple of other team mates joined in sharing same experience with other developers. The team meeting turned a discussion point about bug rejection. After some discussion, we all decided to do a simple exercise to save ourselves from the humiliation of bug rejected, in future.

February 26th, 2014 — Bug Defect tracking, Software Testing Templates, Software Testing Training, Testing Life cycle
This is the concluding part of our “software testing training on a live project” series.
It is going to be about defects and also few remaining topics that will mark the completion of Test execution phase of the STLC.
In the previous article, while Test Execution was going on, we encountered a situation where the expected result of test case was not met. Also, we identified some unexpected behavior during exploratory testing.
What happens when we encounter these deviations?

November 24th, 2013 — Bug Defect tracking, Software Testing Tools
We are testers – in other words bug finders. Defect/Bug/Issue/Fault/Failure/Incident – whatever we choose to call – our primary job description revolves around finding, recording, reporting, managing and tracking these.
While there is no harm in using an excel sheet to record/track and emails to report/alert/communicate – as the magnitude of the projects, the number of test cycles, the count of the people involved grows – it becomes absolutely important that we need a much stronger mechanism that will make the management of these issues simpler and consistent so we can Continue reading →
