What is Integration Testing and How It is Performed?


Background

We have studied about various Software developments lifecycle models. All the SDLC models have Integration testing as one of the layers. In my opinion, Integration testing is actually a “level” of testing rather than a “Type” of testing.

Many a time we feel that Integration testing involves writing code snippets to test the integrated modules, so it is basically a white box testing technique. This is not fully wrong, but I feel the concept of Integration testing can be applied in Black box technique too.

What is Negative Testing and How to Write Negative Test Cases?

Having the most optimal product quality is the primary goal of the test organizations.

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

With the help of an efficient quality assurance process, test teams attempt to find maximum defects during their testing, thereby ensuring that the client or the end user consuming the product does not see any abnormalities with respect to its functioning in their own computing environment.

How is Cross Browser Testing Performed?

Everything about Cross browser testing – what, why, how, who, when, and where.

Many times, I have encountered an issue with a website and on calling the technical support, they simply tell me to try it in another browser? When I do, it works and I end up feeling like a total idiot, even though I earn my living working in the software industry.

I bet this has happened to all of you, hasn’t it?

I always end up thinking-‘why didn’t I think of that?’ But trust me, over time I have realized it’s not my fault; it’s just that the website has not been tested extensively with respect to cross browser compatibility testing and as an end user I have just found a bug.

What is User Acceptance Testing (UAT) and How to Perform It Effectively?

User Acceptance testing is the topic of the day. We will discuss all about UAT – its definition, types, steps, detailed process etc. in this tutorial.

Starting with….

What is User Acceptance Testing (UAT)?

My rule number one when trying to understand a new concept is that: the name is always going to be relevant and mostly a literal meaning (in the technical context). Finding out what that is, will give me an initial understanding of it and gets me started.

Ad-hoc Testing: How to Find Defects Without a Formal Testing Process

The very term ad-hoc implies the lack of structure or something that is not methodical. When you talk about ad-hoc testing, it means that it is a form of black box or behavioral testing performed without any formal process in place.

The formal process here means having the documentation like requirement documents, test plan, test cases and proper test planning in terms of its schedule and order of performed tests. Also any actions performed during the testing are not typically documented. Continue reading →

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 →
