Choosing Software Testing as your Career

If you are willing to choose software testing as your career then this is a must read!
Nowadays I get many mails asking me about software testing jobs. Should I select software testing as my career? How to switch to software testing from other job experience? Which institute should I join for testing course? And many more …

I will give a common answer to all these questions whether you should choose software testing as your career or not? Let me first explain in brief about software testing. Software testing and quality control are the processes by means of which application quality is improved. Software testing is done in each phase of product life cycle i.e from requirement specifications , design, coding, to the user acceptance.

Many complex software structures require in depth analytical and technical skill to test the applications. Knowledge of programming languages is required for unit testing, scripting skill essential for Automation testing.

Now we will speak about your career in software testing. No one can guide you choosing your career more than you! Its right and you are the only person to decide your career.
Do self-assessment to figure out where you can fit well. Do study of your skills, interests, strengths, weaknesses.

Ask some questions to your self like:
What is your goal in life?
What will increase your satisfaction and skill?
What is your interest?
Which skills you have developed in your life till now?
Which training you did that can be applied to future job?

By answering these questions you will automatically come to decision.

To switch to software testing career What skills you will require? Is the most important question I think.

In my previous post what makes a good test engineer, I mentioned some of the software testing required skills.

1. Communication: Customer communication as well as team communication most important for this job. Written communication as well!

2. Technical skill: As I mentioned earlier for testing technical domain skill in languages is important.

Some of the Testing skills are:
Project life cycle,
Testing concepts,
Knowledge of testing types,
Programming languages familiarity,
Database concepts,
Test plan idea,
Ability to analyze requirements,
Documentation skill,
Testing tools

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

3. Leadership quality
4. Analytical and judging skill

Don’t worry if you don’t have some of the skills mentioned above. You can always learn the things if you have interest. Non-IT personas can also grow fast by gaining necessary skills.

So finally selecting testing as your career ask one question to yourself:
Are you looking for career in software testing or just a Job?

Best of luck!

Nice Suggestion by Infosec.
Can you tell detail in the above, How these activities followed in application.

#4 V Baskaran

Iam currently working as a sale person and Iam interested in taking up Software testing as my future career.
I have some basic knowledge in Excel and intenet browsing.

#5 Madhavi

I am very much impressed by this website. The way it is clarifying the doubts is very impressive. And my doubt is what is the real meaning for the words DOMAIN & PLATFORM in resume.

#6 ratna

i was an experinced candidate in design field(2yrs) but i want to shift to the testing field .plz suggest me if i shifted this testing field will supports me or not i mean can i get offers in this field?

#7 zakir

@ ratna

First thing is that a career in testing needs passion and a keen interest in this field. You can possibly judge urself whether ur mindset cud set in this field or not…

As for as regarding testing field is concerned you can shift into this field from any background provided you have good stuf and good technical skills related with testing apart from the initial educational requirement. Since that you were into designing you have the art of getting to the core on the flow of any process and this will really help u in understanding the flow of project. Wud suggest you to be skilled on software process and more of testing process, any automated tool knowledge will definitely help. Give a shot in this testing world and hope u can grove in. Wud also suggest u to study all the useful and informative things provided in this site by our friend vijay. Hats off to him…

All the best ….

#8 zakir

@ Madhavi
A platform describes some sort of framework, either in hardware or software, which allows software to run. Typical platforms include a computer’s architecture, operating system, or programming languages and their runtime libraries.

Simply saying, a platform describes about the Operating system, Front end applications like Java, .NET, blah blah which is used in scripting and running the designed build which u’ve worked in…

A Domain is used as a business logic word which describes the nature of software product you were involved in. For example, Banking, Insurance, Telecom, Finance and more to say….

Hope this clears you friend….

#9 zakir

@V. Baskaran

Basic knowledge in Excel and internet browsing will definitely not help friend. You need to learn a lotttt on software methodologies and more on testing. Wud suggest you to learn all the information provided in this site by our friend vijay. Sry to say you need to work hard and learn more……….

Best wishes.

Also please tell me the test cases.

All the best ,those who are interested in software test as a carreer.

#19 Lakshmi

Hi Navaneetha !!!!

You have asked for the testing tools’ site for practice….here is one site which I came to know recently…..

opensourcetestingtools.com

#20 Lakshmi

Hi Dipinder !!!

You have asked for good books………As far as to my concern, the good book is ISTQB CERTIFICATION

#21 Lakshmi

Hi Dipinder !

The book name is ISTQB CERTIFICATION by RexBlack…Actually this is supposed for ISTQB …but it gives very good and standard idea about testing….

Have a nice reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#22 Lakshmi

Hi Mithum !!!!

Learning QTP is good idea….but learning a project is literally waste of money…

Have a strong grip on the subject and learn a good testing tool …….I hope this will help you better than learning a project…………..

To my best of knowledge…Testing tools are providing some demo projects….. if you visit their site……Have a glance ….and try to grasp everthing……..

Have a nice time!!!!!!!!!!!

#23 Lakshmi

Hi Panchananpanda!!!

The answer is YES!!!!!!!!

Because I completed my M.Sc., Microbiology and I stood university first…………..
But now I am working as Junior Software test Engineer.

As far as I am concerned, the true quality of a tester, is :
To have a zeal to break the application……….so that the application can be made perfectly……….

I am sorry if I am wrong………………….

#24 Lakshmi

Hi Vedika !!!

Welcome to the World of Testing !!!!!!

Many web sites are offering online courses…………
Among them the best is w3schools.com, wikipedia(basic knowledge)etc.,

#28 Lakshmi

Hi all !!!

I have one question for you…Anyone please clarify me…

What is BVT(Build Verification test)???

Recently I was asked to sort out the scenarios that come under BVT???

As far as I am concerned, BVT is carried out by developers and not by testers as BVT is synonym to smoke testing. If I am wrong please correct me.

If it is the tester’s responsibility , then what were the things that should be taken into consideration while undergoing BVT???

Please give me a clear idea about this………………..

#29 Lakshmi

Hi Navaneetha!!!

You are always welcome….

What sort of information you are expecting from fresher/experienced person???

Please let me know….

If I can, i will surely clarify you……

#30 Lakshmi

Hi Zakir !!!

If it is not working, you can have a glance over this site….
http://www.opensourcetesting.org/functional.php

#31 Navaneetha

Hi,Lakshmi,

Actually just i had completed t esting.SO that i need some more information about winrunner and it uses…

I am expecting freshers resume,,,to prepare resume..

Regards
navaneetha.

#32 Lakshmi

Hi Navaneetha !!!

Are you applying as fresher????

First be perfect with Manual testing as automation testing requires manual testing knowledge inorder to convert manual test cases to test scripts.

Coming to winrunner……….

http://www.geekinterview.com/Interview-Questions/Testing/Winrunner

you can visit this site to get some information wrt interview…….now you can concentrate on QTP also…as it is most advanced than WinRunner.

If this is not sufficient, please feel free to contact me…

#33 Jaykay

Hi lakshmi/vijay,zakir

And my doubt is what is the real meaning for the words DOMAIN & PLATFORM in resume.? pls let me know

#34 Lakshmi

Hi Jaykay !!!

To the best of my knowledge,

DOMAIN —- It is the project entity.
PLATFORM — It is the technology that is used to develop project.

For eg., Let us consider you belong to a team that works for Karur Vysya Bank transactions and developed using JAVA……

Here your domain is Banking services and your platform is JAVA

If I am wrong, please let me know…….

#35 zakir

Hi Lakshmi !!

U r 100% correct on wht u mentioned abt Domain and Platform. Thts really awesome :)
And many thanks for ur clarification abt the opensource testing tool site it shud read as .org and not .com :)

Thanks again

Cheers
zakir

#36 Lakshmi

Thanks Zakir

#37 zakir

@Lakshmi

You are right friend. BVT is done by developers b4 giving it to testing team to test the stability/sanity of the s/w.

Build Verification Test (BVT), also known as Build Acceptance Test, is a set of tests run on each new build of a product to verify that the build is testable before the build is released into the hands of the test team. The build acceptance test is generally a short set of tests, which exercises the mainstream functionality of the application software. Any build that fails the build verification test is rejected, and testing continues on the previous build (provided there has been at least one build that has passed the acceptance test).

BVT is important because it lets developers know right away if there is a serious problem with the build, and they save the test team wasted time and frustration by avoiding test of an unstable build.

Cheers

zakir

#38 zakir

BVT contnd……

I’ve found this in a blog site from Testy

At a minimum the BVT should check every file in each new build for:

· Correct version information

· Correct time and date stamps

· Appropriate file flags

· Correct cyclic redundancy check (CRC) keys

· Correct language information

· ISO 9660 file naming conventions

· Viruses

Changes in the build can help the test team focus on critical areas, or identify areas of the project that should be revisited. Other information a BVT should provide to the test team includes:

· New files added to the project build

· Files removed from the project build

· Files with binary changes

U can refer to this site.

http://blogs.msdn.com/imtesty/archive/2006/07/07/659438.aspx

Let me knw if anything new lakshmi

Cheers
zakir

#39 Lakshmi

Hi Zakir !!!

Thanks a lot…

But my lead has asked me to sort out the scenarios that come under BVT from 297 scenarios.

I don’t know how to do and what are the things that should be taken into consideration while undergoing BVT????????

If possible, please clarify me………..

#40 Jaykay

#43 Jaykay

Hi floks,

I have one question what is the difference b/w “Regression testing” and “Regional Regression testing” , lakshmi can u give one beautiful eg and expla…..

#44 Lakshmi

Hi Jaykay!!!

Regression testing —- Testing of a modified build for unintended changes or unexpected side effects that might have occurred during modifications of the build.

Regional regression testing —Testing the critical components of the software (which have critical impact ) for unexpected or unintended side effects that might have been introduced during modification of the build. This takes place when time is the most constraint.

Confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me explain…..

Let us consider—you are working in project which has three modules…
1. login
2. mailing
3. chatting

Now, let us assume that the chatting module has undergone some changes.

Now the build is ready for regression testing.

If time permits, then we will go for (full)Regression testing that involves the testing of all the modules.

But if we come to regional regression testing concept, there comes the picture like :

If we have a time constraint, then we will go for the most critical impact modules i.e, for chatting module, login module gets impacted and no where connected to mailing module(let us assume)…then we will conduct regression testing for those two modules only….

This is just an example…I am not saying that it should be the case….

If iam wrong, please correct me…

#45 Jaykay

Hi lakshmi,

very nice..thanx for clrafiying this…yester day I have asked one more question..do u got any ans for that? :)

#53 kishore

its better to say that my mind is quality oriented mind setup.and i have a test to break attitude.and i have an habit of finding defects in any thing

#54 siva

hi,

I dont know anything about testing can any one tell me the basics. i’m working as a dotnet developer. i had completed my B.Tech in the year 2005.

#55 kishore

so r u going in development side than why u r choosing testing.

#56 L V Prasad

@Priya

Error: mistake in code is called error.
Defect: if we play back a scrip which consists error, then
we will get defect.
Bug: if developer accepts that defect to rectify it is called BUG.

in other way: Bug is term used by developer n defect used by testers.

let me know if my ans is wrong………….

#57 L V Prasad

how many of u doing job on TT

#58 suresh

Iam perfect in test case design, test execution,bug tracking, documentation and all. But only thing is i got less pecntage in B.Tech, i have trained in private institute all my coleagues and faculty are said you have excellent knoledge on testing tools, iam confident on that but i completed graduation in 2007 only. I don’t have experience. I put my resume in website, i haven’t recieved any calls, Iam perfect in both manual and automation(QTP). Iam doing project in private institute also. How can i get the job in testing tools.

#59 zakir

@Priya and LV Prasad

FYI

Bug: Deviations in the application functionality
Error: Mistakes in coding
Defect: Deviations from the requirements

Hope this clears all

so plz could u suggest me for above thing(plz consider automation also)

and also i hv 1.5 years of exp .but i don’t know anything about test plan & test design (just i know theoretical) .here just they will assign the task through task manager.after tat i will find bugs & will report this bugs to mantissa tool….

hi
i am MCA holder from college days iteself i have much interest on programming only . but i got job in testing . last week joined . i don’t have satisfaction to do testing but company assigned in Testing only. is there any possibility to switch over towards developing at least feature . pls tell ur comments to sara23kumar@gmail.com

#66 zakir

@ Sara

First of all congrats that u’ve got an opening in s/w field. Well friend, if ur interest is not really in to testing you can change ur field to development at any stage bcos opportunity for developers are aplenty and u can find one easily by posting ur resume on job sites but before that why don’t u try to apply ur programming skills in the testing field on automation. Automated testing really needs people with good scripting skills and u can try ur hand there and prove ur skills ya. Moreover u can be a White Box tester if u r comfortable in scripting. Wud suggest you to try this way and if u r really not interested to be in this field better lookout for development areas u can find it easily. Just apply in jobsites

Best wishes

thank u zakir .

#71 Kittu

Hi Priya……

Error: Mistake Made in Coding (or) Mistake Made by a programmer that may result in a program (or) A human action that produces an incorrect result.

Bug: Variation between expected result and actual result.

Fault: It is a condition that causes the software to fail to perform its required function.

Example:
When we make errors that causes faults in the computer software,leading to potential failure of the system.

This is the best answer that i can give…..
Please correct me,if this goes wrong……

@siva
Testing efforts starts from kickoff meeting. On one fine morning or at design\coding phase, no one can do testing. So you first need to know the complete sdlc following in a real time environment, on each phase testers have roles and responsibilities.

Hi Friends,
I am a first time visitor to this website. Found it really interesting.
Nice to see loads of people willing to take up software testing as career.
My introduction, I am a Team Lead in one of software mnc in india. My advice to all the job aspirants who are willing to take software testing as a career is good ahead if you have the passion to be a tester. Most of them have a wrong thinking that software testing is a easy job, well to be honest its not . if your under this illusion think again.

How to proceed further in software testing as a career:
simple
* Their are umpteen number of software testing insitute who offer software testing course, i felt stg and stag software are good compared to others( did some research on this)
* Their are few software institute which offer placement assurance/assitance. not sure how many got placed that way. one of my friend joined a software insititue (bangalore) and she did a sqa course and she did managed to get into the industry but will little pay. i can get the details of which insititute it is
* Above all guys, i suggest you to be really strong in your testing basics, that really help you to get a job and moreover sustain your job.

if any of you have any question you can e-mail me, i have loads of testing material and considerable knowledge of testing myself, will love to share it with you.

” Knowledge grows when it’s shared” ( i strongly believed that)

Take care, Bye

hello Mr.Tiger2k,

ur info is valuable…

well one i approached to STAG but they said they intake BE/Btech only, beeing a MSc i didnt suit for most of the companies…

well as u said one of ur frnd got by pay, could u plz tell me that company details, i would like to b get-in , through that way……

kprasadbio@gmail.com

#101 Tiger2k

Dont lose hope prasad, their are so many companies who consider graduates.

I have asked my friend details about the institute, will get back to you on that

However prasad, joining that insititute is not a ticket to software industry, your hardwork, commitment, luck and above all desperation will get your a job.

#102 Tiger2k

You got it wrong prasad, my friend did not get a job by paying any institute for job.

she studied in a insitute, cleared a interview and joined the company as junior test engineer. so the pay was little. that is what i meant by “little pay”. Sorry for the miscommunication from myside.

#103 rahul

@Tiger2k
good to hear all this from u..so many participants are required here on this thread..keep sharing knowledge here it would beneficial for other as well..

#104 Tiger2k

If you people need any help preparing for an interview or any documents which can assit you in your preparation. Pls feel free to e-mail me directly. i will be more than happy to share whatever doc i have and know.

I have gone through the same phase, so i know the exact pain, :)

#107 Tiger2k

Hey Guys , This is my internet name and i prefer it that way . Anyways ” What’s their in the name”
Prasad, I have e-mailed you the details regarding the institute which you were asking about . Check it out.
My suggestion is to send a e-mail to the institute and ask for course material and details . Then evaluate and see what the have to offer. Then decide whatever you feel is right.

Hi All,
I read all the comments and found it very informative. Thanks to all guys for sharing the valuable info and a very special thanks to Lakshmi and Mt Tiger2k.
One query from my side, i have almost 2 yrs of exp in manual testing and did some automation also. But i want to learn some automation tools , please suggest me which one is highly required in market. Do tell me having a scripting knowledge [Perl , shell etc ] is mandatory for testers.

Thanks in anticipation.
Guddo

#110 Tiger2K

Hi Guddo,
I have always believed that Google is the best teacher anyone could ever asked for.
First of all you need to know where does your interest lies, do you want to go for
functional testing or for performance testing.
I guess the two hot cakes right now in the market are QTP and Load Runner ( They maybe others)
So a knowledge of any of this will be just perfect.

You second question, Knowledge of scripting, Necessary?.
Its always good to know a scripting language when you do automation, because u can cusotmize
your test and ensure that you penerate the application the way you want it.
However , i wont say its a mandatory.
Its “GOOD TO KNOW” scripting.

Regards,
Tiger2K

#111 madhav

hi Tiger2K,

i want to know the difference between Build and version?

#112 Tiger2K

BUID is process of converting sourece code in to executable code (.exe) and giving it to the testers for testing.
Version is number of release made during the life cycle of a product.

#113 madhav

thank you tiger.
plz do me a favour.can u send me loadrunner tutorial.
as am beginner in this tool.

#114 Tiger2K

Yeah sure,
Check your e-mail, already done.

#115 satish ambekar

i want to be a software tester

#116 Guddo

Thanks a lot Mr Tiger2k!!
My Experience is more based on functional testing or even my interest also. Can you please help me in providing some institute details for QTP in NOIDA! Or its better if you can send me appropriate study material for the same. It would be highly appreciable!!
Can i have your email id as well, if you don’t have any issues in sharing that??

#117 Tiger2K

Hey Guddo,
My email id is lonegladiator@gmail.com
i have study material regarding QTP, i really dont mind sharing it.
As far as insitute is concerned, to be honest, never been to that part of the country, i am from south.
However i am on a onsite project in dubai right now.
you can e-mail me. and i will send you the required documents.

#118 pawanB

plz send me details regarding all templates of manual testing ………

#119 Guddo

HI Mr Tiger2k ,
Thanks a lot for the documents!
I have some more queries in my mind. Doing some certifications in testing had any value in market or does this thing help me in increasing my package! Actually i am not sure whether i should join some institute to learn automation tools or should i go for some testing certifications. As u suggested me & i browsed thru the QTP doc as well i think i can do it by my own. And if i go for some testing certifications then please suggest me the best one which i can pursue from INDIA only or online as i searched on Google as well i found following list ISEB, CSTE etc. Please help me!!!

#120 Tiger2K

Hey Guddo,
This are few of the prerequisities which you need to qualify in order to go for CSTE

To qualify for candidacy, each applicant must meet one of four prerequisites:

A 4 year degree from an accredited college-level institution and 2 years experience in the Information Technology field
A 3 year degree from an accredited college-level institution and 3 years experience in the Information Technology field
A 2 year degree from an accredited college-level institution and 4 years experience in the Information Technology field
Six years experience in the Information Technology field
AND
Have worked in the information services field within the prior 18 months

Check this website which talks about it:

http://www.softwarecertifications.org/qai_apply.htm#003

#121 Tiger2K

I am not sure about ISTQB though

#122 madhav

i have interview next week. its for manual testing requirement. i have 2+ years of experience in the same.
so far i have not attended any inter..this would be my first interview.
so plz tell me few possible general as well as technical real time questions. also questions related to projects.

thank you,
rahini

#123 Guddo

Thanks again!
Well i have done BA[3 yrs] + MSc [2 yrs] + Work Exp in IT as QA [1 yr 9 Months till now]. I can pursue this course. But do this course have the market value??

#124 rajatha

hi tiger,

who will be involved in integration testing.developers or testers. clarify me.
i heard some people says developers do this but some says testers do this. which is correct

#125 Tiger2K

Guddo,
This certifications surely add value to your resume, but i dont know how much the enhance your pay package,
As a matter of fact i have seen very less company, who have asked for certification as one of the requirement.
This certification is surely act as a “BONUS” or additional qualification for your selection. but once again not mandatory to get you a job right away. maybe you will be considered a head of other job lookers, if you have certification.

#126 Tiger2K

Hi Rajatha,
Interesting Question,
Let me split this word “Integration testing” into “Integration” and “Testing” to make things clear
Integration is a phase of software testing in which individual software modules are combined
as a group to ensure that the modules are working fine as a group.
This activity generally is performed by a person who has knowledge of the code or different modules
which are present in the application( Developers). Tester dont integrate different modules simple reason
being that the dont have a knowledge of the code.
However, After integrating it , There are few tester (white box tester or someone with programming knowledge)
can use stubs and drivers to test the interface and interaction between different modules.

So i will ideally say its mostly done by developers.

I guess this answer your question, please correct me if i am wrong.

#127 Tiger2K

One more point
Integration testing is done on programmers work bench.

#128 rajatha

thank you for ur reply tiger,

still i need some more clarification.
developers means, do u mean only programmers who involved in coding part of application.
OR including DB engineers, sys admin and some more. is it like this.
see with ur answer am getting some doubts like, when they do integration testing.coz to start up with this level of testing functional testing must be passed write. so that means first testers will do functional testing and throw it back to developers for integration testing. is it like this.

and

when developers completes integration testing that is in White box testing level write, then again when they give it for testers again they do integration testing just to make sure that all the modules r integrated properly this is in Black box testing.

these many doubts and questions i have in my mind when i read ur answers.

at last explain me in detail from interview point of view coz in some interviews i have been stopped and been told that testers wont be involved in integration testing.but in some interviews it was accepted that testers do integration testing.

correct me if am wrong.

thanks tiger2K

#129 rajatha

hi,

will there be separate testing team to conduct different types of testing. i mean for functional, integration, system testing different teams will be there or it depends on company.

coz i have mentioned that i have been involved in functional, integration, usability.

is it wrong to mention like this.

#130 Tiger2K

I did not intent to confuse you so much.
However , i hope this answer clear all your confusion.
Unit testing >>> Integrating Testing>>> System Testing( Functional and Non-functional testing)
This is how it flows.

Unit Testing is done by developers or programmers who test their modules or their peer modules code level.
Integration Testing – Developers\ programmers will integrate each other modules as a group
( Ex: Developer A has been assigned login module, Developer B has been assigned home page, Developer C has been assigned add user, Developer D has been assigned logout module)
Now for testing a scenerio where a operator logs in , adds a new user and log out. we require all the above mentioned modules.
So the will integrate all the modules of the developers\ programmers( a,b,c,d) , if their is any issue or bug in code level during integration they will take care.
Tester does not need to worry about it.
Once the integration is done, Tester will check the interface between the integrated modules, like if login in, am i able to access the home page, am i able to print ( interaction with hardware)
once that portion is fine and the modules are working fine with each other.

The application will be released for system testing, This is where tester has a job to do. its his responsibility , to perform functional and non-functional testing.

System testing means functional and non-functional testing, which is taken by tester or a testing team, their wont be a differnt testing test for it.

integration as i told you will be taken by developers/programmers. so i dont think its wrong to say integration testing is done by programmes. Generally
in real time the do it in most of the cases.

Hope this is clear now.

Regards,
Tiger2K

#131 Tiger2K

#133 Tiger2K

why have you posted the same query again rajitha.
r u not clear with the answers or is it out of mistake.

#134 rajatha

hi tiger,
thank you for spending ur valuable time.
yes am very much cleared with ur valuable answer.

last one doubt w.r.t this doubt. so testers job is, as soon as we get build from developers v start up with functional testing, then integration(checking interface between modules), then system testing like this.
but developers give build after doing integration testing that means functionality is also fine. then again why we should deel with functionality testing.

am i screwing u more

thanks

#135 Tiger2K

Hi Rajitha,
I think i am being a bad teacher.

Alright,

System testing means functional testing and non – functional testing. alright.

Process happens this way.( Atleast in my company)

develelopers/progammers will integrate all the modules and test the interface part( developers will do it , sometimes they might ask the tester, but not always), whether all modules are working fine with each other or not as a group.

After the product is integrated, they will give it to the testing team and will ask the testing team to perform the testing,

In integration testing, the developers/programmers will not test the application in depth and will only check whether the modules integrated are working fine with each other. but they wont check positives and negatives flow ( Validation, functionality, performance and stuff)

Testing team will perform functional and non-functional testing( i.e system testing) on the product and raise bugs on the application.

Developers/Programmers will fix the bug and release another build to the testing team.

Testers will do regression testing on the new build.

Hope its clear now

Regards,
Tiger2K.

#136 rajatha

sorry,
i thought u have not seen my questions.
since questions possted recently will pop up, so i posted it again.
sorry again

#137 zakir

@ rajatha,

Tiger is a really cool and proved that he is a good tester by proving his patience towards answering you :)

Just for fun frnd.
We can take it this way. The developers integrate the code and test whether the right modules are placed and linked in right place and the testers do integration testing to check the functionality and the interface between modules function as per the requirement.

Secondly, as u said who will be in part with this integration testing, Developers work on integrating the code, Manual testers work fully on testing the functionality and interface between the modules and depending on the company i mean some company have separate testing team on database who test the integration part b/n the front end and the back end else most companies have testers who r qualified in the database to do the integration part of front and backend.

Hope this is clear. Let me know if i’m wrong.

Good job Tiger :)

Cheers
zakir

#138 Tiger2K

Thanks Zakir,
Rajatha, i hope your doubt is crystal clear now.

Keep coming up with your question guys, it actually helps us as well, since we get a chance to brush up on our skills as well( which is sleeping happily in cupboard now) . :)

so i dont know how the test life cycles will be in MNC.s company.
and also am planning to change the job
is it better to stay in testing., shall i move on my carrer to MBA (i completed me BE (IT) in 2006)

#144 Guddo

Hi Tiger2k,

Want to know the difference b/w Smoke testing & regression testing. In which of these test plan we include bugs of the previous release.

Cheers
Guddo

#145 Tiger2K

Smoke Testing : It covers the major functionality of the application without bothering with finer details.
Smoke testing is normal health check up to a build of an application before taking it to testing in depth. Smoke testing can be done in the first build itself.
You can also say it as Build Verification test or
BVT.

Regression Testing : Regression testing is done to ensure that any bugs which has been currently fixed has not affect the previously working functionalities and the newly added features have not
created problems with the previous version of the software.This testing is ideally done only after the first release.

Hope this clears your doubts.

Tiger2K

Hi Tiger2k,

I have few questions for you regarding manual testing. I was asked these questions during an interview.
1. Difference between System testing and End to End testing
2. Is accessibility testing different from GUI testing ?
3. What is the outcome of a walkthrough meeting and a review meeting?
4. What is requirement tracking?
5. What is usability testing and backend testing?

Why you are changing dev to testing, is it a failure or you are interested in testing. Anyhow it depends on how yuo are good in dev, if so you can do white box testing, security testing using tools, performance testing,etc

#162 Tiger2K

Guys we all need to thank vijay( the author) for providing such a wonderful forum, where everyone is free to express their views. its a great place for everyone to learn.

Shirin regarding compensation , i am really not sure. but i guess a fresher gets anywhere between 10k – 12k. Depends once again on the company. some even get 15k. but once you gain expreince you salary will automatically increase. so dont worry about that part.

dear friends,just now i logged in this conversation,i am working in a BPO organisation and want to join testing software as my career.yesterday i visited in an institute.they are offering a course for software testing which is running by IBM i.e CEIS(career educaion in IBM software).could i join this course as they are telling that there are lot of chances of jobs in software testing?IBM itself can take you if you perform good.or else there are so many companies who are using IBM software,chances are also there.they will provide placement and placement assistance.

so i request you all please assist me could i believe in there words for providing placement facility?because i am new in software line,even i dont know language and C,C++.what should i do?i just know the ms office and the internet.

#180 reshma

Hi all,
I m Reshma.I have completed my Btech in biomedical engineering.I have only basic knowledge in c and c++ language.Is it is necessary that i should have strong knowledge in programming so that i can study software testing????????

#181 Tiger2K

Hi Reshma,
The Answer is No.
You dont need to be a punter in programming in order to do software testing. However its always good to know programming since when you go for automation you can use your programming skills for effective testing.

Regards,
Tiger2k.

#182 shree

Hi Mr. tiger,
as said above that there is no need to have strong knowledge in languages but if u have then its better. But still some institutes say that c is necessary and u cant enter into the training/course if you dont have knowledge of C. Is that the thing?
Please answer me.

#183 Tiger2K

Hi Shree,
R we still talking about Software testing. If yes, i really wonder why because i have not come across any institute which demand “C” knowledge mandatory for joining software testing.
To be honest, I dont think C knowledge is mandatory for black box testing. If you talking about white box, maybe the chances are their.

#184 Prasad

@ Shree

wt ever Mr.Tiger said is right , bcz in black box testing, no need for any langu, but in white box u need to test the coding part too, so c, .net , java are mandatory for white box.

#185 shree

Thanx Mr tiger and prasad.
Can u guide me on the how enter in software testing coz im very new to this but really have a gennuine interest in this field. If u can guide me what should i do? Do i need to get the certification first,m really want to enter in this field, im from a commerce background so will that matter in future as far as job is concerned?
Recently i got 1 mail from a IT co. that they want some commerce students to be joined as trainees but they want freshers with 65% and above, so if you can advise me how should i start at the very initial stage to enter in soft. test.

#186 Tiger2K

Shree e-mail me.
My id is lonegladiator@gmail.com

#187 shree

what should i email u? the mail which i have got from that co?

#214 keshav Kamat

Hello Karthik,

I have been in your shoes in the past. After working as a developer for a few years, I decided to switch over to testing within the same organization. All you need to do is get your head straight, do some talking around – approach your department head/HR etc and tell them that you want a little change and switch over to testing. Even if you are switching over for a new job, any relevant experience is considered. A tester will be even better if he/she has development experience. Trust me. It has worked for me. This is logical because you tend to think from a tester’s perspective in addition to the fact that you already know what mistakes – a developer might commit. So that’s a positive note from my side. My only warning – get things straight. You should not second thoughts of shifting to testing. Because testing at times becomes monotonous. I have been active in this field for a pretty long time now. And thus I can assure you to follow your heart. If you thing it is time for you to switch over to testing, just do it.

Keshav Kamat

#215 keshav Kamat

Hello Thushar,

See my comment above for Karthik. The same goes for you too. A year and a half of experience of development would really help although you need to be a totally different person as a tester. Your views should differ and you should be ready to understand the domain knowledge and fast.

Also get this straight – you need not complete certification courses just to get in an organization. As far as I know, there are several organizations that sponsor such certifications afer you join. So these are not mandatory. More so, you need not know a lot of automation tools. These are just associate tools. All you need is a steady mind, ready to capture the intricate faults in a piece of software.

Keshav

#216 keshav Kamat

Hello Anwar,

You seem to be interested in software development or testing. I would advise you to first decide on either. You cannot have both together and you have different requirements for them.

In terms of software development, you have to decide what kind of project you want to take up. If you don’t have an option initially, but like doing it – then you ought to improve your skill set accordingly. According to my experience in this field – I have seen and known that you hardly tend to use your college skills here. What you have learnt in college might not even constitute to a percent of what you would probably use in an organization. The most happening technologies would be SAP, C# etc. But then it depends on which organization you are a part of or what kind of projects/products do they handle. In such cases, you really dont have a choice but to move with the herd.
Overall, you need an analytical mind with a promise that you will not be bored/exhausted after a day’s work enough to commit a suicide. You tend to be a little pressurized as a developer normally. That is as far as software development goes.

As a tester, you need to be positively negative in your approach. The paradox is appropriate as you need to be destructive with the sole aim of finding faults. Although this approach is negative, you ought to maintain good diplomatic relations with developers and other testers alike or whoever else is involved. This is so true and so demanding but people just overlook these qualities required to be a good tester. You also should have an insight on the expected behavior/performance/results as it is essential for test cases and design/planning. More so, as i have mentioned in my previous comments – a healthy communication pattern is a must. And that means good communication skills. You don’t want to make a terrible mess of your defect dialect – if you understand what I mean.

It is just not possible for anyone to explain the requirements of a good tester easily. But I hope this helps you a teeny tiny bit.

#217 keshav Kamat

Hello Abhi,

I take it from your comments that you are a developer. Firstly, this is a testing help forum and you are trying to scare the hell out of people reading the posts. Secondly, I really don’t think it is a good idea to preach people that testing is not a technical activity . Besides you have also mentioned that salaries for testing individuals are less which is so untrue. Wow. Let me come to that one by one.

I have been a part of this culture for a pretty long time now. I have always been working in a fortune top 50 company. And in no regard is testing considered any less important than any other activity in the software development life cycle. I can’t help people who don’t believe in this fact.

A common misconception is that testing does not involve technical skills nor much of communication skills. Let me get this straight. To all the people reading this comment, needless to say testing can be as much technical or some times even more as/than development. A professional tester can be an equally good developer if he/she tries and wants to. A tester has to also maintain diplomatic relations with his/her respective developers and to the people whom he/she reports to. More over, you need to be in touch with the growing trends and technologies. this way you know a lot about the quality processes, which unfortunately a very few developers would attempt to know.

If you are unaware – roughly 40-50 percent of the software development costs are estimated and planned for testing. So I guess big companies aren’t fools enough to spend that much amount in a less important activity. Isn’t it?

And abhi, no offence meant here -but can you justify that if you move to development you would utilize all your engineering knowledge? I am reluctant. help me if I am wrong. How many technical languages have you learnt in your engineering days. I don’t want to brag – but then I can definitely tell people that I graduated out as a university topper (or rather – as you say it – a gold medalist). And I know how much effort I spent it that. But I still know that you hardly utilize the technical know how in the actual field.

So quit joking around. Testing is a serious field. You don’t want a nuclear reactor to just blast off due to a simple rounding off problem in the software. Lack of testing or inappropriate testing has caused some wonderfully expensive disasters and history is a proof. Software testing is a very competitive field. It is continously evolving. So grow up – you guys. And treat testing with equal importance. It is a part and parcel of the quality process(es) that people like to adhere to.

@Vijay – I would be glad if you could add some comments to clear some misconceptions about software testing that people might have.

Hi dear rajendra,

It is appreciatable,teaching exp almost 12 years on various software technologies.But there is lot of difference exist between working in project on real time projects and teaching field.TEACHING is respectable and all time profession and you can create number of S/W Professionals through your subject.
After such a great experience,its not advisable to change your profession.

– how much does it pay?

– do I have to have a technical background?
– what is the most appropriate age to do such a career change?

@254 Hussain,

Dear your friends idea is appreciated.
S/w testing course u can learn from any institute, but that is not enough to get a knowledge on testing.

try to learn online material and participate in FAQ’s in all testing forms.. this will develop u thinking power, and problem resolving independently.

when you are about to finish the course, update your profile as per ur knowledge and apply for jobs.

and also try to get real time procedure from any organization from ur friends… this will show u the difference between the normal testing knowledge perosn and u.

wish u all the best..

#269 Vandhana

Abi, Please stop misguiding people. As what Keshav kamat says…
I was a hard core developer for 4 years and then shifted to testing. Today i have a total of 13 years of IT experience and my move to testing from Development was the best ever happening in life. Testing is an interesting field and i would say this is more so challenging even when compared to development where resources hardly get to know the big picture. To gain domain expertise, understand the business in hand and to also grow technically, a shift to testing is what is needed. Also, shifting to testing helps one move up faster in the career ladder. It is a good choice to stay in development for the initial yrs of your career and then switch over to Testing. Although there may be pockets of difference in salary here n there, the industry trend has changed and is changing, testers and QA Managers are being paid at par or even salaries higher than that of the technical track. 10K vs 30K is a blind comparison. There is much more to assess as to why someone is getting only 10K while the other 30K.

#277 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Ms.Pooja (# 267),
Switching is good from development to testing or vice versa. Just the only thing matters is interest.

But here are some alerts for you.
1. Welcome to testing field – if you are interested.
2. Continue to development – if you don’t know abc of
testing.
3. Means that, First learn testing from any of the institutes, Make sure that, You’ve not resigned to your existing job at any cost.
4. Learn manual and automation testing (qtp/loadrunner etc.,).
5. Note that, Calls will be zero (very very rare calls) for 1/2/3 (till 3 years also some times) in testing.
6. If you won’t believe in point number 5, You may leave a trial.
7. With development experience in your profile, You can’t get a job in testing as a fresher (believe it or not – but its a fact).
8. You’ve to replace your development experience with testing experience, for this to happen, You need to have clean and clear knowledge about manual testing and at least on one automation tool knowledge.
9. Impossible is nothing – if your heart is willing.

You are most welcome.
Please don’t resign to the existing job, Till you get your offer rolled out as a “Sr. Test Engineer” or “Sr. QA Enginer”.

So, You’ve to do testing course on week ends!

Before selecting the institute, Read out my comment number 882 in the below link.

Dear Nil (# 276),
Opportunity comes very rarely.
We’ve to act very wisely.
If interested in testing, Just ask them to roll out your offer letter.
If not interested, Question yourself with the following.
1. Will your present organization keeps you for long time – even if you are in bench/no work/current job (reporting)?
2. Is that current job, is useful to you in future?
3. Do you really interested in the current job?

Simple.

If not, Just step in black box testing.

Dear Ms. Gitanjali (# 280),

Performance: LoadRunner

Before selecting the institute.. Try to get answers for the below questions.

Before paying fees at institute, Just make sure you have answers for the following questions from the institute people.
1. Total course duration in hour for manual testing?
2. Total course duration in hour for automtaion testing?
(If you are willing to learn automation tools as well.
But my suggestion, Just go ahead with automation
tools as well).
3. Any certification you are going to get from the
institute after successful completion of the said
course?
4. Is that certification valid and useful?
5. Are the institute people going to provide only job
assistance? (which is worth waste).
6. Are the istitute people going to provide job
assurance? (this is what exactly students can
expect from the institute).
7. How many interviews they are going to send us?
only fixed number of chances or unlimited number of
chances?
8. After completion of my course, Within what time, My
profile becomes active in your database and when
are you going to start calling me for sending me to
attend the interviews?
9. Any additional fees do I need to pay after completion
of course and after getting placed in job?

Please don’t hesitate to ask the above questions. We are paying the fee and getting the things learned. They are responsible to answer. If you won’t ask, At the end, You have to regret by yourself.

Its all based on my experience. Because I learnt from one small institute. No guide lines from any one. Just course got finished. But…..? Then again I rejoined the same course (full boring to listen second time.. but need job) in another institute and now I got placed.

Of course, In first institute only the things (topics related to manual testing) are very clear and in depth. Depth or breadth, not matters. But job matters. Even on our own, We can learn what is what of software manual testing. But its good to prefer institutes.

3) I am starting my career in software testing as a fresher. My age is 32 and my previous experience is of 9 years but in Administration field. Will I going to struggle for getting a job in software testing? OR looking to previous experience, which course you think is suitable for me.

Dear Ms. Malini #305 & # 306,
Software testing is not hard.
Software testing is not very hard.
Software testing is easy & motivating to think beyond the Device Under Test (DUT), Software Under Test (SUT), Application Under Test (AUT).

If you are interested in to testing, Just make a move towards testing.
You are most welcome for tremendous professional and personal growth in this field.
Its a never ending field.

Don’t have a second thought in your mind.
Only you have to have is “interest” in testing.

#306 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Ms. Ranjita (# 308),
A very good idea flashed in your mind.
Just don’t waste any more time. Go ahead and do software testing.

Don’t forget to concentrate on your pending subject pertaining to your graduation. You’ve to do this simultaneously. I’m give equal importance to both.

Pertaining to testing, There is no particular course or something like that.

First do manual testing course. And then do automation course on any of the automation tools. Recommended tool is QTP. What I meant to say is that, Join an institute where you are going to get training on manual as well as automation tool(s).

With regard to institute selection, Its up to you.
But just make sure that, Institute people are going to give job assistance and job assurance (also). And also, Ask for the certification(s) – If any! you are going to get, once you finish your testing course.

Regards,
Govardhan.

#307 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Mr. Nagesh (#309),
Programming knowledge/skills not required.
Go ahead and get trained in automation tools.
Recommended is QTP. But choice is yours.

Hello Friends

Which Automated Testing Tools are Used Testing Web Applications .

#310 venkatesh

Which Automated Testing Tools are Used for Testing Web Applications .

#311 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Mr. Nagesh (# 310),
First go to QTP
Next go to LoadRunner
Still interested you may go to WinRunner, SilkTest, IBMRational, etc.,

Hard Work: How much?
————————
Till you get confidence on yourself for facing the interviews. Its up to you. Once you are done with the courses, For one tool, 16 hr of revision/practice is more than enough to clear any interview(s). Simple.

No other languages are required.

#312 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Mr. Venkatesh (# 314, 315, 316),
First ramp up yourself in manual testing.
All companies don’t use automation tools. Because..
It depends on requirement of client/company.
Moreover, Commercial tools are not that much cheaper to get purchased with license.

You may read out my previous replies for the rest of your queries. QTP is used for web testing (to test functioanlity). LoadRunner is used for web testing (to test performance). And like wise different tools to test different tests.

Like MSWebstress tool to test stress testing (web testing tool).

#314 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Mr. Milan (# 311),
In India – Bangalore, It costs around 8k to 10k, Covering Manual testing and with one automation tool, i.e. is QTP.

Newyork – I don’t know.

For Manual testing, It takes 30-40 hr to complete the course. And one automation tool, Under worst cases it requires, 8 hr. But better to learn the automation tool in 20 hr instead of fast and speed track (something like that).

Slow and steady wins the race.

Hi, I chida
I am working in entersoft, there i have experience of working as a test engineer, but now i want to join as a manual tester as i have a experience of 1 yr. only.

Please sugest me what are the concepts that I have to concentrate and also Domains in which I have to concentrate is QTP is must to get a job as a manual tester and where do i get knowledge of Domains
( Website addresses) to improve my Domain Knowledge
and what are the Domains which helps me to get job easily

Thank you

#321 Sujeet Khandelwal

Chida.. you seem to be confused with testing terminologies..
Test Engineers are classified in two categories; manual and automation test engineers.
If you want to go for manual testing then you must go through basic testing concepts; refer ISTQB fundamental docs, if possible complete the ISTQB certification.
If you want to go for automation testing then you have to study QTP, Test partner kind of automation testing tools. For that you should have programming skills.
If you want to get the domain knowledge, you are moving towards business analyst designation. The most used domains in IT are Banking, Insurance, Healthcare and Finance.
Testing concepts can be applied in any domain. And I think Domain knowledge is not helpful and required in beginning of testing career.

Now the testing industry is in good shape. Surely you’ll have good career growth in this field; if you r smart enough.

As by the words of market watchers, there is no enough openings in Testing domain; but the case is not so. Actually now the companies are in mood to have a smart person instead army of average people.

So make you smart, so that you can get job easily and you can achieve your target soon.

Hi All,

I am new to software testing and want o know how to grow in this field. I have met some testers who have good exp. in this field but still want to know how to grow to get going in this field

#394 palik

Nowadays doe to high degree commodisation of testing sevices (TCs, infosys, tech mahindra cognizant, IBM, wipro) offering do do testing free in some work packages testing is losing its sheen.
people are underpaid and over worked.
Little or no training is provided and domain related documentation is made inaccessible to testers to have control over what they can test.

Most of It service firm in India dont consider testing as a skill and think that automation professionals (who are just vb script writer who translate the detailed test case into vb script code) as experts in testing.
Most of automations professional fail to under stand basic testing principles and avoid the real testing that is manual testing.

Ask any automation guy to deisign few tests and document test plan and test case for a given fucntionality they drop dead.
Avoid and get out testing as soon as possible.
Especially beware of telecom testing in firm like tec m and infosys wipro etc. it most laborious and unrewarding as 2 tester are put where 20 are needed because they are doing work free of charge to client.

#413 Govardhan Reddy M

Dear Ms. Chitra Lakshmi (#398 & #400),
Just keep rocking with the same technology (testing technology). You really come to know how importance testing is. No need to switch. Even test engineers are equally paid in most of the companies. And you may be surprised to listen that, Test engineers are paid even more than dev. engineers (but here domain matters and of course talent as well). Try to jump to networking domain (interesting and highly paid domain).

Good luck.

Can any one suggest me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance .

#529 Vijay

Hi Rabi,
You need to prepare a strong reason for – Why you want to switch to software testing from development. Just saying you have a passion for this field won’t work. You should be able to talk on this further.

As you a developer you might be having good understanding of STLC as well. Learn and understand other testing concepts and methods to write effective test cases, procedures, and test plan documents. Having knowledge of any automation tool is a big plus for you to directly switch to automation testing as your development experience will count and help you quickly get started in this field.

Joining any professional course will help but it’s not mandatory. You can do this yourself if you are willing to learn by your own.

Regards,
Vijay

#530 Ramendra

Merry Christmas & New year 2014 greetings to all.

Pls answer my query. I have done BCA & MCA. Passed in 2008. I am now 35 yrs old working as Sales co-ordinator from past 3 yrs now. Due to family problems I could not get into software earlier. But now I want to do Software testing course and change my profile & career to Testing. Pls suggest me is it ok or good to do now. Will I get Testing jobs later on…?

#561 Akhila

If yes, kindly suggest what testing tools course is good and how long will it be. Will I be considered as a Fresher or experienced. Pls give the reply soon. Thanks in advance.

@ swetha

Certification is always only a add on to your experience and not necessarily guarantee your increase in pay nor it is going to harm you in any way if not done. You will need to explore on other options like a change in company to get your pay increased to your expectations provided you get yourself skilled with the demands of the job needed.

@AG

you have already invested your 10 years of experience in pharmacy field and what is forcing you to change your field to testing. You’ll be a novice in this field and would be needed to start afresh which also include a fresher pay start. Think about it

@Asha

On a first thing not all IT people have a pure background in IT but they are different professionals as well. The decision on choosing a career is with your own wish and hand friend and people from testing field like me can suggest you some inputs on it if you could follow all the comments.
Well, that’s a good answer that you have given stating you have passion for testing and make a point on what makes you or inspire you. Need to convince them with some interesting answer which value your word (Passion). You can add some points like the issues you have identified which is not visible to the world or not identified. Talk on a scenario as an example and explain on how you would start testing with passion on breaking the software somehow. The basic logic here is impressing the interviewer to convince on your point
My best wishes to you…

@Krishna

Age is not a big factor in your case friend as you already hold a good education (MTech).
Also it is the experience that matters the most and not really the company being small or big. Focus on the testing process as it is much demanded in big companies

@Prassun

Think you need to be prepared for a question on why do you need to change your career after a span of 8 years and what would be your contribution if the company hire your in testing.
Still there is no harm in changing the career…

@Binoy
Wondering how in 4 days you enjoy ur work being a tester :)
Now you have stepped in s/w industry. Look around on what is happening around you and how the sdlc and stlc goes around then question yourself on what attracts you more …

@Ramesh
You can learn SQL queries. There are a lot many sites like say http://www.w3schools.com from where you can start with basics

@Aakash
Think the comments given to asha should reply to urs as well

@kadari

Since you are a fresher keep learning on testing concepts like you are doing in this blog and learn with some good institute which can add value to your profile

@raj

Distance education is not a barrier to stop you entering in the s/w industry. All what you need is good stuff and good never die attitude.
My best wishes…

@kamal

Hike is always directly proportional to your experience and expertise

@Mohit

There are quite a lot types of testing and the experience depends on the project and company you are working on. Website testing by itself has lot things to do say Load testing, compatible testing, security testing etc. etc. which you need to be aware of and explore on it

@sravani

In the below site you can find opensource testing tools which you can explore
http://www.opensourcetesting.org/functional.php

Have a clarity on why do you need tool and to test what kind of application

@ wasim and @ Akhila

Not sure on your vision. Can you drop me a mail please

#563 raju

Hi friends, IT field is the worst field.We have to work hard for 14 hours per a day.Even though we work hard there is no job security.If we learn QTP then Selenium will come in market.If we learn selenium some other tool come into that market.I can’t understand whether we are machines or humans.Employees may become mad if they learn the tools continuously.Are we born in this world to work like slave for IT industry.The person who has given the +ve comments has to answer.
