How Domain knowledge is Important for testers?

Jayant Deo asks:
“Looking at the current scenario from the industry it is seen that the testers are expected to have both technical testing skills as well either need to be from the domain background or have gathered domain knowledge mainly for BFSI is commonly seen.
I would like to know why and when is this domain knowledge imparted to the tester during the testing cycle?”

First of all I would like to introduce three dimensional testing career mentioned by Danny R. Faught. There are three categories of skill that need to be judged before hiring any software tester. What are those three skill categories?
1) Testing skill
2) Domain knowledge
3) Technical expertise.

No doubt that any tester should have the basic testing skills like Manual testing and Automation testing. Tester having the common sense can even find most of the obvious bugs in the software. Then would you say that this much testing is sufficient? Would you release the product on the basis of this much testing done? Certainly not. You will certainly have a product look by the domain expert before the product goes into the market.

While testing any application you should think like a end-user. But every human being has the limitations and one can’t be the expert in all of the three dimensions mentioned above. (If you are the experts in all of the above skills then please let me know ;-)) So you can’t assure that you can think 100% like how the end-user going to use your application. User who is going to use your application may be having a good understanding of the domain he is working on. You need to balance all these skill activities so that all product aspects will get addressed.

Nowadays you can see the professional being hired in different companies are more domain experts than having technical skills. Current software industry is also seeing a good trend that many professional developers and domain experts are moving into software testing.

We can observe one more reason why domain experts are most wanted! When you hire fresh engineers who are just out of college you cannot expect them to compete with the experienced professionals. Why? Because experienced professional certainly have the advantage of domain and testing experience and they have better understandings of different issues and can deliver the application better and faster.

Here are some of the examples where you can see the distinct edge of domain knowledge:
1) Mobile application testing.
2) Wireless application testing
3) VoIP applications
4) Protocol testing
5) Banking applications
6) Network testing

How will you test such applications without knowledge of specific domain? Are you going to test the BFSI applications (Banking, Financial Services and Insurance) just for UI or functionality or security or load or stress? You should know what are the user requirements in banking, working procedures, commerce background, exposure to brokerage etc and should test application accordingly, then only you can say that your testing is enough – Here comes the need of subject-matter experts.

Let’s take example of my current project: I am currently working on search engine application. Where I need to know the basic of search engine terminologies and concepts. Many times I see some other team tester’s asking me questions like what is ‘publishers’ and ‘advertisers’, what is the difference and what they do? Do you think they can test the application based on current online advertising and SEO? Certainly not. Unless and until they get well familiar with these terminologies and functionalities.

When I know the functional domain better I can better write and execute more test cases and can effectively simulate the end user actions which is distinctly a big advantage.


Here is the big list of the required testing knowledge:

  • Testing skill
  • Bug hunting skill
  • Technical skill
  • Domain knowledge
  • Communication skill
  • Automation skill
  • Some programming skill
  • Quick grasping
  • Ability to Work under pressure …

That is going to be a huge list. So you will certainly say, do I need to have these many skills? Its’ depends on you. You can stick to one skill or can be expert in one skill and have good understanding of other skills or balanced approach of all the skills. This is the competitive market and you should definitely take advantage of it. Make sure to be expert in at least one domain before making any move.

What if you don’t have enough domain knowledge?
You will be posted on any project and company can assign any work to you. Then what if you don’t have enough domain knowledge of that project? You need to quickly grasp as many concepts as you can. Try to understand the product as if you are the customer and what customer will do with application. Visit the customer site if possible know how they work with the product, Read online resources about the domain you want to test the application, participate in events addressing on such domain, meet the domain experts. Or either company will provide all this in-house training before assigning any domain specific task to testers.

There is no specific stage where you need this domain knowledge. You need to apply your domain knowledge in each and every software testing life cycle.

If you are reading this article till this point then I would like to hear on which domain you are working on? So that our readers can get better idea of different domains and projects. Comment your domain below.

Update: As per the request from many readers I have updated our software testing resource page for the BFSI domain online documents and articles for downloads.

Will there be peak loads and how will the system react?
Can your site handle a large amount of users requesting a certain page?
Large amount of data from users.’


Stress testing is done in order to actually break a site or a certain feature to determine how the system reacts.
Stress tests are designed to push and test system limitations and determine whether the system recovers gracefully
from crashes. Hackers often stress systems by providing loads of wrong in-data until it crash and then gain access
to it during start-up.

a. Typical areas to test are forms, logins or other information transaction components.
b. Performance of memory, CPU, file handling etc.
c. Error in software, hardware, memory errors (leakage, overwrite or pointers)

Continuous use :
Is the application or certain features going to be used only during certain periods of time or will it be used continuously 24 hours a day 7 days a week?
Verify that the application is able to meet the requirements and does not run out of memory or disk space.

6. Security:

Valid and Invalid Login
Limit defined for the number of tries.
Can it be bypassed by typing URL to a page inside directly in the browser?

Hi swetha,
Verfication is the process of confirming that S/w meet is is also called static testing technique Checking the SRS document,review the code..

Validation is the proecess of whether is saitisfies the user requirements.To check that what we requested that has been delivered

#100 David

Hi Shahul Hameed,
what u told i accept stress testing how is reacts from the failure then tel me wt u mena recovery testing?

#101 Shahul Hameed

Hi David,

Recovery testing means how our application software
recovers from abnormalities like application crashes, Data Loss and other similar failures.

For Eg, Recovery testing on a TV means how it recovers from abnormalities like improper power supply, voltage problems,etc.

Whereas, Stress testing tries to break the system under test by overwhelming its resources or by taking resources away from it (in which case it is sometimes called negative testing). The main purpose behind this testing is to make sure that the system fails and recovers gracefully — this quality is known as Recoverability.

#102 David

#147 Muthukumar

Hi Jayant Deo,

Ur article is good and very useful. I want know how come a person get exprience (knowledge) in good domains unless he/she gets an opp. where he/she works. every one will not get chance to work on particular domain like banking/finance/telcom/network etc.
so one should look in to thier testing (manual/automation), communiction skills etc and not domain. they should be hired and trained inhouse to work on particular domain. then every one gets chance to come across these domain. if a person knows only erp / application domain and does not know the above mentioned and not hired because of domain knowledge how come he will come to know it. i faced this problem having good testing, comunication skills but not the domain. we cannot learn domain skills outside. we should get chance. then still i will be working on the same. person having alone will be going on. it is not good.

I am not completely agree with above article. What is more important that a person must should have indepth knowledge of software testing activities. Domain knowledge is an additional attribute of the tester, it is good if has some hands on same domain. If requirements are clearly jotted then an expert tester can measure the quality of any software. By the way test team is a pack of east and west, so persons with different abilities should be hired to make a good team.

Thank You!

Am in need ot that… thanks in advance.

Solution for #341,


If u need to add a new TC u can add after 10th TC.
as per know knowledge, adding a new TC inbetween the exsisting TC is not recommended.

if u are working with QC, u can set the TC Execution in order in Test lab tab.



This article is awesome.It would be help for all Testing professionals.

#397 Ashish Mittal

Hey Vijay

Thats an excellent article. But I hold little different opinion. I am an engineer in printing and am doing as software testing professional in print related software making companies since I started my carrier. Though I am profited by my being a domain expert, but this is not something extra ordinary I hold. A professional with zeal to learn, can easily know the domain by putting little efforts, provided he should be a sincere tester. Moreover, pulling in same domain from last six years is growing little boring for me and I think a change in a different domain can bring challanges and more stuff to learn for me.

Let me know your views on it.

#417 Umasree Raghunath

I would strongly recommend that testers should try to acquire a certain amount of domain knowledge to make the functional testing effective for the following reasons.
1. Purpose of the software utility and what each of the functions in the applications means to the end user. Tester should be able to translate the requirements validity into the end results which is usable and compatiable to the business need.

2. BFSI Applications :
These applications cater to the finance and banking world at large. The software can be on the global platforms or standalone systems. In such cases, there are various regulations and laws pertaining to the Financial domain across the world. So the tester’s knowledge on the domain and certain amount of these domain specific business needs will help the application have no loopholes when we complete the Release.
For example: Take a simple Banking Online Portal- Unless you know how the “Methods of Payment” and “Scheduled Payments” , User Registration, and “Account Summary” will work in the real world, it would be difficult to test the requirements and confirm validity of the application. Where as if you take larger applications that cater to global needs of Trade Finance, Investment Banking, Capital Markets or Portfolio Management, unless you have the business acumen, it will be difficult to analyze the end results.
2. Health Care Domain: The need is pertinent to understand certain common medical terminologies to provide accurate validations on the software performing as per the customer requirements or business objectives. Unless you know what the end results meet, like the reporting softwares of the Medical equipments, it would be very difficult to confirm that our testing is 100% accurate. That is where Test Analysts who work closely with Business Analysts who in turn will be Subject Matter Experts will come useful in the testing process.
3. Manufacturing Domian – Having extensive experience in the Auto Domain industry, and overall manufacturing life cycle, one thing that I would strongly put here is that our understanding as Testers, Test Analysts or the Test Managers in the process of SDLC is predominant and this process cycle should be in tune with the actual software end users.
For example, today, most of the software developed for the Manufacturing units actually are used in the plant floors. In such a case, unless you know what happens in the Plant Production units, you will not know how this software you developed and tested actually means to the end user.
For example, we have a Resource Loading Software for a Component Industry. Where multiple parts are produced and shipped towards the main assembly plant and the main assembly plant completes the assembly and sends to the shipping unit. Here the production counts have an actual impact on the goods movement in the shop floors. Hence it is vital to know what these figures that pop up on the screens in the software mean to the end user. This makes our testing more efficient, reliable and acceptable.

I would call this a balanced way of handling both the domain level of understanding and technical understanding, for at no point, the tester should feel that his job ends by testing the software application at his desk. I remember the days when we used to test if the Letters of Credit generated in an backoffice in India, is actually getting printed in Korea. Here the tester should also know who the end users are, how to manage their coordination and final testing for acceptance. Remember friends, we are a very important team, not just for testing but for the Entire application what so ever, for which so ever domain, our ultimate goal should be a bug free, user-friendly and usable software that has to be delivered. We should really act as Strong Gatekeepers and for that it is an added value to have the domain knowledge. You can always take expert opinion and sharing knowledge from SME in the respective fields to learn and know better before you begin your testing. Good luck Folks,


#418 whatz in a name !!!

Hi Folks,

The Article by Jayant …insights a skill ..which is very much needed in the current software testing arena…
yes jayant , i agree 100 % on your thoughts…domain knowledge is very important….
i have worked on Retail for 4 yrs & is currently in Banking domain….
i need to make a point here..its really a herculean task to gather a particular domain knowledge..the best way to gather much of domain knowledge is to identify the sub domain with in each domain and learn…
there is also an option to specialise in something which comes under different domains also…
for example..
for the past 3 years i have worked in retails POS systems..where i have gathered enough knowledge of the front end systems…n now i m working in banking domain..where the testing is concentrated in the back end..
to make things easier…retail pos..take a scenario ..just think of a person swiping a credit card at the retail pos terminal..testing is pure front end ..where we are just concerned of the response..n there is no idea what happens in the back end…
in the banking domain..just think of the scenario i told before..swiping the credit card..there are lot of processes happening in the back end …with the banking side..such as authorisation, message formats,re concillation, distribution , reporting etc…
so working under the same systems under different domains..will make u a specialist…which ‘ll give u something extra apart from the domain knowledge…

Dear friends

Well I am trying to get a job as manual test engineer
in my last interview they asked about SQL injection
but, I don’t know about it.

If anybody will know about please tell me about SQL injection,

Is it SQL statements ? Is there any tool for SQL injection
How to enter a SQL injection statement in web application?

I hope I can get the help from this site

Thank you

#437 anisha

Thru SQL Queries trying to retrieve sensitive information. Without having proper credentials trying to get the information by randomly injecting the queries to the database.
Example: Railway Reservation System
While booking tickets in the url address page trying to send some queries and getting sensitive information’s.
This is my point of view. Try to get information form Wikipedia…

#438 Vidya

Hi testers,
This article is very informative, & makes us familiar with the current trends in software testing, as it becomes important to work smartly in a competative environment, one should have enough knowledge about the functionalities from the end -user point of view.

I work in a financial domain, i query the database for different datamodel tables & check the entries done through the mappingcomposer, where the datafields are mapped based on the bussiness logic.
Here it becomes essential for me to understand the bussiness scenario to check the relavant entries in database, financial domain is very vast.. equities, bonds, futures & derivative, options,commodity,… & each has different chapters,,,
also verify DB for duplicates, integrity constraint, unique constraint… etc..
So we can exchange information on finance and make our work more interesting…!!

1.Coming to my work I’m working as tester and since last 1.5 years i’m working HR domain project(Basically it’d out organization product),could you tell this is an good domain and how the organizations believe that he/she is an very good domain expert while during interviews.

2.One more important question is let ‘In real world there are lakhs of testers and competition also’ very high,in such scenarios how to prove and get demand our self in the presence of organizations.
EX: I have 3 years of experience my current CTC is 25K per month and i attended for an interview and i asked for 40K per month,in such scenarios why should take me by paying such amount,what we should show to him?

Domain knowledge means we are completely validating customer’s requirement without their much intervention and to their full delight.

#516 Rajesh Prabu Radhakrishnan

It is a very important aspect in terms of bringing the testing down to closure. Domain Knowledge matches the requirement (ERD/BRD) and the understanding of the developer in the building/fixing of an enhancement/issue. It also helps in structuring constructive test scenarios. It gives a virtual figure on the output during testing.

#529 Supriya Gahlawat


Very impressive article and I completely agree that domain knowledge is very much important. My personal experience says that.

I feel the kind of domain i work on is quite unique and interesting in its own. The domain I work on is ATM Domain. I work in a QA dep. When I say ATM domain this includes testing of Software and Hardware both.

Here we are not just individually testing software or hardware, its a combine process. Hardware would not work without Software and vice versa. To perform any kind of testing you really need to have good amount of knowledge of Hardware, Software, Networking…
