Business Process Testing (BPT) – How to Simplify and Speed Up the Testing Process Using BPT

In today’s generation of automation testing, Business Process Testing (BPT) has changed the current testing industry standards.

Business process validation is the act of verifying end-to-end business process. It is performed step-by-step to confirm that all business rules are working correctly and when any deviation is found the defects are logged.

This tutorial will give you a complete idea on BPT – How it works, what it includes, its significance, etc.  Continue reading →

How Data Driven Testing Works (Examples of QTP and Selenium)

Many times, there are a number of data sets that we have to run the same tests on. And, to create a different test for each data set values is time-consuming and inefficient.

Data Driven Testing overcomes this issue by keeping the data external to Functional tests and loading them when there is a need to extend the automation tests.

------------

In this tutorial, we will discuss Data Driven Testing – What it is, how it works, pros & cons, etc.  Continue reading →

A Simple Guide to Interoperability Testing (with Examples)

Before understanding the technique of “Interoperability Testing”, Lets first understand the term “Interoperability”.

Interoperability is an ability of one system to interact with another system. This interaction is between 2 different systems or 2 different applications all together.

Many a time Interoperability is confused with Integration, compatibility and portability. Well, there are differences between these techniques. Continue reading →




All In One Guide On Defect Density – Its Importance and How to Calculate It.

A Guide to defect Density:

Test Metrics are tricky. They are the only way to measure, yet the variety is overwhelming.

You could be collecting something that isn’t giving you the analytics you want. The safest way here is to walk on the well-beaten path.

Almost every team in the world relies on defect Density to understand defect trends.

Today’s article is an all-in-one guide on Defect Density (DD). Continue reading →

What QA Tester Should Know About Release and Deployment Management Process

In our team meeting today, the manager checked with everyone on their readiness for test execution. He mentioned the “code will be ready for QA by tomorrow morning”. What did he mean when he said “code will be ready”, does it mean the developers are going to write the code in QA environment tonight?

He actually meant that the deployment is planned to be done at night and the new code will be deployed to the QA environment for testing.

Many of you may now ask, what deployment is and what do they really do in it? Continue reading →

Verification vs Validation – What’s the Difference and Why It is Important to Understand It

It’s back to the basics folks! A classic at that – Verification Vs. Validation.

The following are some of the reasons why it is very important to understand the difference between Verification and Validation:

  1. It is a fundamental QA concept, therefore is almost the building block to being QA-cognizant
  2. It is a commonly asked interview question
  3. Certification syllabi (or is it syllabuses?) have a good amount of chapters revolving around this
  4. Finally and practically – since we testers do both – we might as well be experts at this.
