How to Improve the Test Release Process for Successful Bug Free Software to Production

Let’s see the typical process involved in delivering software from ‘development phase’ to the ‘testing phase’ for a successful bug free software release to production/client.

These processes are either overlooked or skipped by software companies, which results in poor test management and thereby’ a “buggy” software releases to the client, which leads to “unsatisfied customers”. Continue reading →

Case Study: How to Eliminate Flaws of Waterfall and Agile Development Processes Using a Hybrid Model

Agile Waterfall Hybrid Model

The Waterfall Model has been the ideal choice for software development. In this model, an idea becomes usable software in a sequential process that cascades through the stages of Initiation, Analysis, Implementation, Testing and Maintenance.

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

But the Waterfall model has some disadvantages.

Static Testing and Dynamic Testing – Difference Between These Two Important Testing Techniques

Testing is verification and validation. We all know that it takes 2 Vs to make testing complete.

In today’s article we will shed some light on Static testing. It is also called as Verification. We will learn all about it and pay special emphasis on this, because dynamic testing often receives maximum attention and has innumerable articles detailing it out.

However, no discussion on static testing would be complete without an explanation of what its counterpart, dynamic testing means. Dynamic testing is validation, the other “V”. Dynamic testing is when you are working with the actual system (not some artifact or model that represents Continue reading →




How Test Planning has Upper Hand than Test Execution Phase?

Software test planning reserves far better scope comparatively in STLC phase. The delivery of quality software is ensured by the testing phase. What has to be done in testing is actually decided in the test planning phase.

What you will learn in this tutorial?

This tutorial will provide overview and illustrations on the importance of the test planning and the execution phase. After reading this tutorial you will understand the significant importance of the planning phase compared to the execution phase with more live examples and case studies for illustrations.

Live Project Bug Tracking, Test Metrics, and Test Sign off – Free QA Training Day 6

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?

Test Execution – How to Deal with this Most Important and Happening Phase in the STLC – QA Training on a Live Project Day 5

Today, in our software testing mini training course, we are progressing into the last stage of the STLC, which is the test execution.

You can check out the list of all tutorials posted in this free QA training series on this page: End to End software testing training on a live project.

Test execution is without doubt the most important and ‘happening’ phase in the STLC and also the entire Continue reading →
