What is Backend Testing and How to perform it?
Software Applications are complex; there is more than what meets the eye.
Most system testing efforts go through GUI. This is because testing validates if the software is ‘fit for use’ by the end-user or not. End-users use GUI and so do we; that is why it is really important that software fares well in this area.
But, software has a lot of other elements too that aren’t directly visible or available to the user for direct interaction. It does not make these elements any less important and they must too undergo thorough testing. Continue reading →

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 →

You can do something the easy way or the hard way – the important thing is that you do it. There are few simple everyday things, but without confidence, something about them does not quite fit in our minds and the extent of success is a hit or miss.
Let’s take one simple example today and find shortcuts that will not only clarify the concepts but also make sure that you will always get it right. Continue reading →

An overview of Functional Testing:
Testing and Quality Assurance are the huge part of the SDLC process. As testers, we need to be well aware of all types of testing, even if we’re not directly involved with them on a daily basis.
Since testing is such an ocean and the scope of it is so vast, we have dedicated testers perform different kinds of testing. Many of you are probably already familiar with most concepts, but it wouldn’t hurt to organize it all here.
So let’s get back to some basics.

December 24th, 2015 — GUI Testing, Quality assurance, Types of testing
New trainees came on board and we had a training class to learn software testing concepts. After seeing those enthusiastic faces with their almost blank-slate minds (professionally), I decided to take a detour to my routine training.
After a brief introduction, instead of talking about software testing like I normally do, I threw a question at the fresh minds – ‘Can anyone explain me what a wireframe is? ’
The answer was a pause and thus, we decided to discuss it. And that is how it started – Wireframe/Prototype Testing :) Continue reading →

There are many websites and applications that we often use. While we use them, we probably do not pay a lot of attention on how the website came to be its current version- on the other hand, if something does not seem right, we probably will never visit the site/app back again.
The question is – What does it take to get “it” right?
The “it” most often is the functionality – which we have rock solid QA processes to test and evaluate. But the “it” also Continue reading →
