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 →

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 →

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.
