Requirement Specifications:

This specifies the objectives of the system/product, what is to be accomplished, how it fits into the need of the business and finally, how it is used on a day-to-day basis. This is not simple.
User Requirements

User requirements typically describe the needs, goals, and tasks of the user. It says “typically” here because, often these user requirements don’t reflect the actual person who will be using the software; projects are often tailored to the needs of the project requestor, and not the end-user of the software. It is strongly recommend that any user requirements document define and describe the end-user, and that any measurements of quality or success be taken with respect to that end-user.

User requirements are usually defined after the completion of task analysis, the examination of the tasks and goals of the end-user.

One of the most reliable methods of insuring problems, or failure, in a complex software project is to have poorly documented requirements specifications. Requirements are the details describing an application’s externally-perceived functionality and properties. Requirements should be clear, complete, reasonably detailed, cohesive, attainable, and testable. A non-testable requirement would be, for example, ‘user-friendly’ (too subjective). A testable requirement would be something like ‘the user must enter their previously-assigned password to access the application’. Determining and organizing requirements details in a useful and efficient way can be a difficult effort; different methods are available depending on the particular project. Many books are available that describe various approaches to this task.

Care should be taken to involve ALL of a project’s significant ‘customers’ in the requirements process. ‘Customers’ could be in-house personnel or out, and could include end-users, customer acceptance testers, customer contract officers, customer management, future software maintenance engineers, salespeople, etc. Anyone who could later derail the project if their expectations aren’t met should be included if possible.

Organizations vary considerably in their handling of requirements specifications. Ideally, the requirements are spelled out in a document with statements such as ‘The product shall…..’. ‘Design’ specifications should not be confused with ‘requirements’; design specifications should be traceable back to the requirements.

In some organizations requirements may end up in high level project plans, functional specification documents, in design documents, or in other documents at various levels of detail. No matter what they are called, some type of documentation with detailed requirements will be needed by testers in order to properly plan and execute tests. Without such documentation, there will be no clear-cut way to determine if a software application is performing correctly.

I would start by understanding current processes. If there are none – have group meetings – get buy off on your ideas or modify them as needed. Start with simply processes and add on to them as the process matures.

#52 veena

please send me detailed notes on SDLC and STLC in Testing Tools.

#53 Jaishri

Hii Veena
Will send you an article which has different phases of SDLC and STLC, so that you make out the difference between both. Tell me if thats not enough.

What are SDLC and STLC ? Explain its different phases.


* Requirement phase
* Designing phase (HLD, DLD (Program spec))
* Coding
* Testing
* Release
* Maintenance


* System Study
* Test planning
* Writing Test case or scripts
* Review the test case
* Executing test case
* Bug tracking
* Report the defect

#54 Jaishri

Hi Manoj
Here is the answer for your question

Error: The difference between expected result and actual result is error

Bug: If that error comes at the tome of development stage before production then it is bug.

Defect: If that error comes after production then we say it is defect.

#84 George

hey what is the exact difference between regression testing and retesting not in detail. Dont want the answer as both are same or the definition of both.

#85 Jaishri K S

Hi George

Re testing: Is something to check whether the already found issues are fixed or not

Regression testing: Is something to check whether the already found issues are fixed or not, and more than that have to check whether the fixed issues produces any other issues and also to check the already working parts in the application is functioning properly or not

Have i made you clear?

#86 George

Already found issues can be tested in the next build with that fix only, is it not?. So with a new build why you want to do retesting just do testing, right? But regression testing can be done on the next build because we are testing the fixes made any changes to the associated functionalities.
Please do comment with strong arguments…

#87 asha

hey what this testers can do in software development. They are just multiplying the work by finding some concerns of their own and that is not needed for the client. No need of testers in software development its just an added resource, a clever client wont bill for them.

#88 K Govindraj

@ George

Retesting is done to ensure that the bugs detected are fixed properly
and it is no longer there, whereas Regression testing is to ensure
that while fixing the bugs , the same does not cause any side effects
i.e fixing of bugs does not create new bugs in already tested areas.

@ asha
Testers add value to a software product. Every client requires a bug
free software a software which works without any hassles .Without
testers one cannot ensure that.

K Govindraj

#89 george

@ K Govindraj,
“Retesting is done to ensure that the bugs detected are fixed properly and it is no longer there” What you mentioned is bug closing. But retesting is re-executing the test cases in same build to ensure that what we found is acceptable and the cause, say for example rewind the song to anderstand a particular word or something.

#90 asha

hi govind
When this testers came in to picture, only after 2000. Earlier how we shipped projects\products to client, by developer tested only. so dont argue like this “Without
testers one cannot ensure that”.

#91 RahulKumar

@ Lakshmi
not at all its require 4 dev not 4 decide wt u want…

#92 K Govindraj

Apropos to comment 91, earlier the job of testing was done by developers who were not doing the job correctly as one should know that the job of testing is a destructive process which a developer cannot do as he cannot be a creator as well as destroyer. Hence Testers were born and now it is done by specialised persons who are skilled with a mind set to find only faults in a program. For your info, plz note that specialised testers are there since 1980 and not 2000

Regarding comment 90, the comments are wrong. Plz note that bug closing is done when the bug detected initially is fixed without any side effects which will involve both retesting and regression testing. Plz check on comment 86 also which I concurr

#93 Jaishri K S


Retesting will not be done in the same build, it will be done in a new build.

#94 Vijay

hi Govindraj & Jaishri
As far as i’m concerned Mr. George is right and i saw his various comments on different topics seem to have vast years of experience in testing

#95 george

Please see the comment of nani under regression testing section and see the apreciation from vijay too. Then self evaluate your knowledge in testing. Poor man poor…

Red Box testing
Yellow Box testing &
Green Box testing, there is no terminology like this in testing industry, some can say it is protocol testing-redbox, or error message testing-red box, warning message testing-yellow box and green box- environmental testing, of cource white, black, grey box testing is there. Or else why it is called by red, green, yellow box testing, anyway it is not due to the icon\symbol with the warning or error messages. please do comment by experts only…

Thank you.

#111 Yogesh

I require study material for Advanced ISTQB – functional tester as well as technical tester

#112 Yogesh

One thing I would like to share is, I had suggested a new activity and also lead that in my organisation.
I am certified test engineer with 2 yrs exp(manual).
I suggested to take a daily QA meeting where all dev/qa/ba/support team members were invloved in the meeting.
The purpose was to discuss daily issues and new suggestions or any new work around done by any member to improvise the work culture.
for eg. I placed a problem that it is difficult to maintain the bugsheet, testcase and SRS on personal pc’s and then ask the respective owner who worked on that task to email when required.
The solution was lets keep a common shared drive where things will be kept folder wise say testcase, bugsheet,srs,production issues mail diff folders and all members can have access.
By such meeting we could increase the communication gap between the team members and share better knowledge as everyone was expert in his/her work.
You Readers can try this or rather must be practicing this even now, If u can suggest better practice let me know.

#113 Vijay

Poor! why dont you use VSS or TFS for common file repository.

Hi guys,
I have a question for all of u, out there. Hope i get to hear from you all soon.
My question is as follows:
How to import test cases locally on my machine in word doc to the team foundation?

We were using the sharepoint. Now slowly migrating to the TFS, I dont have hands on experience in the new tool. so, need input from fellow testers:)
Let me know how to import the test cases in the word doc(step by step), and later on how to integrate these testcases to the bug encountered(I think its by linking it in the bug).
Thanks in advance!

a white guy repairing a car.

#216 Brad Smith

OMG! What is wrong with everyone’s English? You are all in the QA and testing domain and it seems like nobody knows the first thing about English grammar. I’d hate to see your CV’s. Nobody is going to want to hire a QA specialist who can’t even speak the language of their business… unless it’s for $10/hr and you live overseas…

#218 Brad Smith

Way to go “balanced scorecard”! Perfect example of why nobody would look at your CV. Horrible grammar and it sounds like you are 11 years old since you only have 11 years experience in knowledge. That doesn’t even make sense! You would not be my first choice for a QA professional, or even a tester (button pusher). Thanks for the laugh!
