Software Testing questions and Answers 1


Today I am going to answer some reader’s questions. Actually I am thinking to start a weekly column on “Software Testing Questions and Answers”. Usually I get dozens of mails daily asking me on some software testing queries. Instead of answering them privately I will put them collectively in posts so that many similar questions of other readers will also get addressed. You can submit your questions in comment sections of posts. Before submitting question I will strongly recommend you to search here on this site if your queries are answered previously.

So I will kick it with some questions in this post.

Shivika asks:
“I have been given the assignment to test a UI based application page. They want me to break the functionality in any way. The first page is Sign up page containing fields like username password, email, url address field and some check box selection options . I have tried all the ways in which I can test the page. Can you also please suggest that what can be possible ways in which we can test the page?”

I will cover some major negative test cases to break the sign up page:

1) See the limit of username field. I mean the data type of this field in DB and the field size. Try adding more characters to this field than the field size limit. See how application respond to this.
2) Repeat above case for number fields. Insert number beyond the field storage capacity. This is typically a boundary test.
3) For username field try adding numbers and special characters in various combinations. (Characters like !@#$%^&*()_+}{“:?><,./;'[]). If not allowed specific message should be displayed to the user.
4) Try above special character combination for all the input fields on your sign up page having some validations. Like Email address field, URL field validations etc.
5) Many applications crash for the input field containing ‘ (single quote) and ” (double quote) examples field like: “Vijay’s web”. Try it in all the input fields one by one.
6) Try adding only numbers to input fields having validation to enter only characters and vice versa.
7) If URL validation is there then see different rules for url validation and add urls not fitting to the rules to observe the system behavior.
Example urls like: vijay.com/?q=vijay’s!@#$%^&*()_+}{“:?><,./;'[]web_page
Also add urls containing http:// and https:// while inserting into url input box.
8 ) If your sign up page is of some steps like step 1 step 2 etc. then try changing parameter values directly into browser address bar. Many times urls are formatted with some parameters to maintain proper user steps. Try altering all those parameters directly without doing anything actually on the sign up page.
9) Do some monkey testing manually or automating (i.e. Insert whatever comes in mind or random typing over keyboard) you will come up with some observations.
10) See if any page is showing JavaScript error either at the browser left bottom corner or enable the browser settings to display popup message to any JavaScript error.

These are all the negative test cases. I assume that you already tested the same sign up page with all valid cases to check application is working fine as per requirements.

If above cases are not breaking the application page then don’t forget to praise the developer ;-)

If you have some killer test cases to break such applications that you learned from your experience, you can specify them in comments below.

Jayant asks:
“Normally freshers pass out have a state of their mind as “we are freshers”, recently pass outs from college and expect that the companies to recruit them should consider the knowledge base they have and further should impact them training. In true terms what is meant by fresher for an industry?”

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

Good question. When I was fresher I was thinking on the similar lines. But think from employer point of view. Employer will think like “Why should we hire candidates having little knowledge base and experience? and need training first before assigning any work? Well, fortunately not all employers think like this and that’s why frehsers are getting the jobs and training on the board. Thanks to the booming IT industry. Demand will continue for freshers having good educational background and appropriate problem solving skill.

Tremendous growth in number of engineering colleges resulted in significant increase in number of graduates passing out each year. And the gap is also increasing between the skill of graduates and the expectations of the companies.

Now I will focus on what industry look specifically in fresh graduates? Typically it will include:

  • Problem solving and Analytical skill
  • Technical skills
  • Communication and interpersonal skill
  • Leadership skill
  • Extra activities like foreign languages, organization skills etc.

So it will be always better if you try to achieve any experience or skill before trying for any graduate jobs. You are one step ahead than those freshers having no experience at all.

This work experience typically includes:
Internship
Internship work done in any company during or after the graduation. It may be free or paid internship

Sandwich courses
In some courses industrial training is included in curriculum itself. It is typically of 6 months to 1 year in most of the universities. You can include this project training in your resume.

Special skill achievements through classes or companies:
Training taken from some institute or companies can be included in your work experience.

Projects:
Projects accomplished for commercial or research purpose. These are the paid or certification projects accomplished for companies during the graduation years.

All above-mentioned work will definitely count as a experience as you get actual idea of company, team work and company working culture. Find out your skill areas and what you can offer to employer before hunting for jobs. Companies always look for all-rounded candidates who can effectively utilize their skill into projects from universities, experience and extra activities.

#2 varma on 11.03.07 at 9:54 am

Hi i know the expact differances between smoke and Sanity testings ? and where it is used ? when we will use these once? pls give me the answer

#3 kish on 11.03.07 at 12:51 pm

How to interact with the developer about the bug?

#4 G Raj on 11.05.07 at 8:28 am

its true. My favorite negative test case to check input box is insert single or double quote on it. Many times you can see this is not handled.
Also try adding HTML tags as input in such input boxes. You can find many bugs on such html tags as input to text boxes.
Great list bye the way.

#5 Jayant Deo on 11.05.07 at 10:48 am

HI Vijay

Thanks for the details. IN many of the cases during my visit to corporate there takes the discusison on the similar ground towards how the fresher candidtes can be well technically groomed towards the exact fit for their equriement and hence we have taken an aproach to the institutions right at the inceptio level with the inpus form indystrh client and offered on-campus sandwith courses at nomimnal cost and further FREE internship with our cleitns for a tenure of 90 days full time to work on projects to sharpen their skills which they are going to get work experience certificate form the client. I hope this will bridge the gap between the freshers strength adn industry need of fresher with adequate experience as well hands on.

Jayant

#12 aruna on 11.14.07 at 10:24 pm

hi

can u please explain what are the internal, external and broken links in yahoo website?
Do we have to write the test cases for each link?

#13 Meenakshi on 11.15.07 at 9:05 am

We need to write test case or test scripts for each link – this can be done using customization of the automation scripts(loadrunner)

#14 Mani on 11.15.07 at 10:07 am

Hi GS,

Test Cases can be derived from the Scenarios. If you want to do write test cases for validation of text box, you can write Scenarios or Test Cases.
Scenarios:
Scenario 1. Check with the valid input(write the Expected Result)
Scenario 2. Check with the invalid input (write the Expected Result)
In Scenarios you can just mention Valid & Invalid and while testing try with all permutations and combinations.

In Test Cases you have to mention all the Permutations and Combination as a Case.

This is my live experience.
Pls Correct me If I am wrong..

@aruna

About internal, external and broken links in any website

An internal link allows you to link to another section on the same web page, so it basically scrolls the page up or down to the desired location. This is helpful to the user to quickly jump to the information he/she is looking for.

External link checks link for outgoing links. It can be any link to any other websites.

Broken link refers to a weak link which does not work while clicking the link. This might happen when the path is not defined clearly by the developer when writing the scripts. There are few sites which checks for broken links. For more details refer to this site http://validator.w3.org/

Hi, I have a BSc degree, and have more than 2 yrs of experience in recruiting, and more than 1 yr in technical support. I am now interested in learning the concepts of software testing. Do you think it will be an ok transition from HR to software testing? Also I plan to take a 6 week course online. Any thoughts?

Great site , great job BTW!!!!

Thanks!

#30 Jayant on 12.02.07 at 4:55 am

Hi Swapna

Of course yes as you are from HR background it can be considered as a vertical I mean any software development company engaged in develop say ERP module the knowledge at your end is going to be useful as a process which can be termed as DOMAIN EXPERTISE

#37 ganesh kumar on 12.06.07 at 11:28 am

Hi,
My question is software testing is done in all developement concerns or not ,because some of the companies didn’t do that, they just created the software and they done all the testing by themselves (manually)
and send it to the clients.Then why testers are needed.

#38 Jayant on 12.06.07 at 11:39 am

2. Hello All

1) Tester will be having more functional knowledge and there by
testing the application for the usablity and developer will be having
the knowledge in the screen only for which he /She has coded.He might
not be having the Complete picture of the Biz.
2) Interface Testing and system tsting are not possible at the
developers end

So the above lines of quotes from verious testing professionals to reply Mr Raj who had asked the similar question WHY TESTERS? which is close to your one does testing happens in every company YES it does without product delivery is not probably done.

Jayant

#39 ganesh kumar on 12.06.07 at 11:56 am

Hi,

The above quote is nice. My question here is about the salary package.

A tester with 2+ years experience can earn how much. At the same time is there any difference between salary levels of a developer and a tester or it may be same.

#40 Vijay on 12.07.07 at 6:51 am

Hi Ganesh,
I really appreciate Jayant for sharing his and his friends thoughts on testers need in company.

To your latest question about salary:
Take the example of shopping market. You will get a product for different prices if its made by different companies. New and small companies will sell them to low price whereas big brand companies will not. Why? They have reputation, market and trusted quality since many years.

So as a tester your salary will depends on following factors:
1) Your total experience
2) Your Relevant experience (Say in software testing)
3) Your Skills
4) Your Role in organization (i.e tester, Sr, tester Test lead, Manager)
5) Your education
6) And finally the company salary policy.

Yes companies have salary policy, that what package a fresher will get, and also package for experience professional.

If you are working with equal opportunity employer then there should not be any differentiation between Developers and testers salary. And as per my knowledge most of the CMM companies do not differentiate between tester and Dev.

To be specific to your question as a 2+ experience and if you are on software test engg. position in a CMM level company then you can get around average 4 -5 lacks per annum package.

#41 ganesh kumar on 12.07.07 at 10:46 am

hi,
Its a very nice observation about the salary package,My qualification is Msc(information tech) and 2+ experience in s/w testing , how much my salary expections is to be.

#44 Suhas M on 12.12.07 at 10:58 am

Good list of test cases. i would like to add the few.

1.Try to register a user who already exist.
2.Try to register the emailid which is alredy registered, with different details.
3.(Assuming) If the password after the signup is sent to the email id registered, check if it is randomly generated and unique every time.
4.After registration click the back button of the browser and request for the same registration( it should not allow).
5. You register a user and system crashes.

#45 supriya on 12.12.07 at 12:51 pm

#46 Suhas M on 12.12.07 at 1:04 pm

Replying to Jayant:

Well, Vinod has mentioned most of the things that a fresher should have, in addition to his/her degree.
Altough its true that a fresher will be in a state of mind thinking “we are freshers”, but that won’t help anyway. You can’t keep on saying that, instead go attain some crash courses in the subject which you are intrested , that definatey will be a value add. “You have to run pretty fast in this life even just to stay still “.
To get into a good company and to get a first break, you need to have that extra THING in you. This can be anything what Vijay has mentioned above or what I have listed in my post.
The most important thing that a company look into a fresher is his/her Learning Ability, Analytical skills, Aptitude and the Attitude . The one who is recruiting you might have gone through same phase of life one or other day. They do know the ability and limitations of a fresher. Most of the companies have their own inhouse trainings going for months. A fresher also needs to have patience and confidence. I have seen many people giving up after a few months struggle.
Keep learning and try to stay in touch with the people in the industry you know. The best thing is keep visiting the tech forums and tech blogs.

Ultimately, fresher for corporates is the person passionate about technology and having the zest to learn it.

Regards,
Suhas.

#55 suresh on 01.08.08 at 12:56 pm

Hi

I’m a frequent visitor of this site, we get many information from here.

Can anyone say what is the standards to be followed during usibality testing for a web application, and from where can we get it

#56 suresh on 01.08.08 at 1:01 pm

What is the difference between the CLOSE AND CANCEL button

#57 Suhas R M on 01.09.08 at 7:48 am

Suresh,

Usability testing is like testing how easy is the application to use for the user.

Consider a application whose target audience are general public (who know nothing abt s/w). Say to use the application u need to make a registeration. While registeration it will ask to enter the LOGIN ID. Now what is the login name? A description needs to be given for that mentioning what the term LOGIN ID stands for.
This is very very simple example of Usabiity testing.

While carrying this testing the very first and important thing to know is what the application is and who the intended USERS are? Without knowing this your testing will not be useful.

Difference between Close and Cancel?
Close: It will close the window, application.
Cancel: It will take you back to the previous page, screen.

ALL,
When you post the question make sure that you give your views/answers to the question you post. This will help the person answering to understand how much you know and what way he needs to answer you. Else it will be more generic and you may not get the expected answer.

Regards, Suhas.

#65 tom on 02.01.08 at 6:13 am

Can you give some suggestions on how can we test an application with business prespective like i know what is the basic functional flow in the application

but obviously the developer will not know it & he will surely miss them so what would be proper approach

say for example

Purchase Module – Raise Po , Approve it , Capture the GRN in stores

So apart from this how we can ensure that system will handle all the business flow

Billing Module (patient)

1. Capture the bill details , recieve the payment in Cashier
Corporate patient – generate the bill for bill items segrregate the allowed & disallowed items in cashier & Rebilling corporate , recieve the corporate receipt against the corporate consoliddated bill

2. Rates – appropriate rates should be applied for the patient type like private , corporate, insurance , international, external

these are some basic scenarios apart from this any thing else can be tested in our project we dont focus much on field validations just mostly we focus on business scenarios which i found breaks the system very easily

Need your suggestions mail me

Thanks & Regards
TOM

Hi,
can any one tell me “what is latent defect?”
and “what is bug density?” my mail id is bindupulikanti@yahoo.co.in

#73 zakir on 02.06.08 at 7:36 am

1. Latent Defect

Latent defects are those defects that still remain in the software product even when delivered to the customer.

These can be identified effectively with Inspections.

2. Bug Density

Bug density defines the testing metrics.

It is cost-effective for software practitioners to monitor and control the quality of software from the early phases of development.

Ratio of the number of bugs to the number of code defines the bug density

Data consistency is very important in web application. Check for data integrity and errors while you edit, delete, modify the forms or do any DB related functionality.
Check if all the database queries are executing correctly, data is retrieved correctly and also updated correctly. More on database testing could be load on DB, Security on DB etc…

Pls dont midunderstand that i am promoting STG here, i have nothing to do with them.
I am a Team lead in a Software MNC. I have studied in STG and i felt its good.
I would like to clarify one thing. Have u already joined MCA or going to join.
Second thing, Do u really like testing or your using this as a platform for entering software field.
Third, If you think testing is a easy job, well think again.

So first ask yourself a question and then once your confident. you can join any insititue or even do self learning.

Best of luck,

I am attending interviews to get a job as software tester.For a short duration projects companies expect me to have full knowledge of TEST PLAN,TEST METHODOLOGIES,TEST STARTEGY AND TEST DELIVERRABLES. All these topics are very important to make test plan. can anybody tell me how to prepare test plan and all these topics.I am confused so, Please help me with these questions.

#132 Ekta on 05.02.08 at 10:10 pm

As a tester to get good job we should have some other soft skills. I have knowledge about SQL QUERIES,MS access, less knowledge of VB.What type of soft skills should i learn to get a good job in software testing field? Is it useful to do courses in SQL language, VB, VB.NET and .NET to enhance my skills in this field?
I am trying to take some course, but i am confused which course is useful for me in software testing field.
Please help me to clear my confusion.Answer me ASAP.

#133 swapna on 05.02.08 at 11:21 pm

Ekta: Soft skills do not comprise of any programming language or some data base knowledge, soft skills are mostly your communication skills and how you present your technical knowledge out there!
So with your technical knowledge and communication skills you are ready to take testing challenges.
There is no limit for learning and again nothing can be learnt overnight. Some jobs need pre-requisites and some others will provide you on the job training.

#134 Tiger2K on 05.03.08 at 9:08 am

Hey Ekta,
You seems to be highly confused.
Alright, here is the plan:

what you need to do is a software testing course, which ideally covers manual testing and automation(winrunner, Qtp, test director, etc) above that you need to have a little bit knowledge about scripting for enhancing your automation scripts.

Test plan templates are available on the internet, if you face difficulties finding it, i will send it out to you.

communication skill is a must as far as i am concerned, if you dont talk, how will i know what are you talking about, does not mean anyone is demanding an accent or free flowing english( good to have though) .

Bottomline is be strong with your basics.

Regards,
Tiger2K

#136 manjula on 05.07.08 at 7:18 am

hai
plz reply for que
What is the difference between use case and test case with example
thanks
manjula

#137 VijayD on 05.07.08 at 8:40 am

@Manjula

USE CASE:
A use case is a description of a system’s behavior as it responds to a request that originates from outside of that system.

The use case technique is used in software and systems engineering to capture the functional requirements of a system. Use cases describe the interaction between a primary actor—the initiator of the interaction—and the system itself, represented as a sequence of simple steps. Actors are something or someone which exists outside the system under study, and that take part in a sequence of activities in a dialogue with the system, to achieve some goal: they may be end users, other systems, or hardware devices. Each use case is a complete series of events, described from the point of view of the actor.

TEST CASE:
A test case in software engineering is a set of conditions or variables under which a tester will determine if a requirement or use case upon an application is partially or fully satisfied. It may take many test cases to determine that a requirement is fully satisfied.

Test cases are often incorrectly referred to as test scripts. Test scripts are lines of code used mainly in automation tools.

Written test cases are usually collected into test suites.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
VijayD

hi pramod,

even i want to know why database knowledge is necessary for testers.and how do TE make use of it.

#142 VijayD on 05.09.08 at 6:05 am

@ Rajatha

As a Test Engineer, you need to have database knowledge.

1) Your application always interacts with a database schema in order to display information on GUI.

2) Lets assume, in your application you want to see all the existing users list, then you need to write a query like, SELECT * FROM USERS;

3) Some times, you may need to test the application with customer specific data, then you need to take the database backup from the customer and need to restore your local database with the backup taken from the customer.

4) In order install your application, you may need to create your own database schema, for that you may need to create an user and then run the SQL queries.

etc…

How can you do all these tasks without having database knowledge.

As far as I know, for any Test Engineer the basic skill set should be as follows,
– Knowledge about the Applications (2-tier, 3-tier etc)
– Database knowledge (atleast writing queries)
– Communication Skills (both written and Verbal)

VijayD

Generally for every new we perform smoke testing in this we check the basic/core functionality of the application.
Useability : in this we check look and feel and understandability of application.

Insatllation: in this check the instructions given in installation guide by installing the build as these instructions.

Adhoc: testing with no proper documents, testplan,test data.. etc

ping me if u have any concerns at ramesh16j@gmail.com

How do u do usability testing,security testing,installation testing,ADHOC,safety and smoke testing?
Please anybody answer me this question.

#195 Ekta on 08.29.08 at 8:09 pm

Hi Chandana,
As you asked question about difference between QA and testing………
Quality of product includes two things quality assurance and quality control(testing).
1.Quality assurance is related to the process done for quality of product.Where quality control is related to product(meet the final specification).
2. Audits in an industry is the example of QA where as
Testing is the example for QC.
3.Output of QC(testing) is input for QA.If we find any problem in QC(testing) we need to change or correct our testing process(QA).
4.QA is productive in nature where QC is detective in nature.

How do we do load testing practically at work for a website application?
How we test a login page or other page performance when many users try to request the same page?
Because it is not possible at work to manage many(eg. 500) user just to test a login page or other page in a website application.
I was asked for the same question in an interview so someone who has experience with load testing in an website application please answer me in datail.

#200 Tiger2k on 09.17.08 at 3:50 am

Hi Ekta,
The answer is very simple, use any performance testing tool like load runner or eloads .
This tools provides you with a concept of Vuser who simulates the real time user actions.
This way you can find out the performance. let me know if you have any doubts.

Hi Tiger2K,

Thanks very much for your help.You also helped me before to get good answers of my problems.But i want to request you if u will provide me this answer with full detail because i never did load testing by my self. I have only theoretically knowledge(i think not in detail).I didnot get your this answer properly so i am requesting you to help me with this.
I will wait for your answer.

#207 prashanth on 09.25.08 at 7:36 am

Hey Venkaetsh, Itz silly that u want to change ur platform.. I wonder why u are looking out for a new job again.When u already possess 2 + yrs of exp in manual testing , then why dont u try out for any Automation tool, may be u may get some extra knowledge on automation too and who knws that may be handy in the near future, rite!!!. just think abt it and try to come out of the phobia of looking for a new job.
Strictly speaking Venkatesh, the present scenario is not so gud in software as the Recission period is in full swing .
My kind suggestion to u is, not to look for any new job till this year end.
There are many ppl who r looking for jobs and u r the one who wants to go for a new job , how strange that is ! am i rite venkatesh?

So dont give up the present one.
Contact me ,if u have any queries
here is my mail id.
cynosure001@rediffmail.com
Regards,
Me.

#208 Jaanu on 09.25.08 at 8:35 am

@Ekta
If this Question raised to me. I would have told we need the analytical skill to find the bugs in the an application. Some caught easily (e.g) design issue by an eye some are not found in a glance. We need to test in a zikzak way to find more bugs.
It is not easy in some case.

#212 namrata kesarwani on 11.04.08 at 2:11 pm

sir i have completed my b.e in cse in 2003.but due to some problems i did not take engineering asprofession.but now i wanted to enter in IT field.somebody told me about software testing course.will i get the job after doing this course.there is 5 years gap.plese tell me should i go for this or do something different

#213 Prashanth on 11.05.08 at 6:20 am

Hello, This is in response to the Query Raised by Namrata whether is there any scope for her in testing if she wills to enter.

As u have completed ur Be with Cse in the year 2003 and since u possess 5 years of gap ,I think u have a Gud chance of making it into Testing.
But the pros and cons are always there for any field,rite?
So First U need to Learn Testing thoroughly (MANUAL and Automation).
I bet Manual testing is easy .This will be like a Theory dealing wit some of the Important concepts.But Namrata the only factor u need to worrry abt in manual is The Templates used in the Real time Environment. Since u said u have 5 yrs of gap after ur Be(2003).
U need to be perfect in all those aspects .
Coming to the Automation, Im sure tat will also be an easy for u as u have some computer knwledge,since u r a CSE student.
In Automation, u need to be Perfect in Scripting Part.
Im sure u might have heard abt Java script, Vbsript ?? rite?..If so.. that woud be handy for u in understanding the Script.
There are few Automation Tools available in the market, like…Qtp,LoadRunner,Winrunner,Silktest,RationalRobot,SqaSuite and so on…..
So if u learn Qtp, there the Scripting language used is VB Script….
Scripting languages vary from Tool to Tool.
Namrata, If at all u r projecting with 5 yrs of exp in testing , then u need to knw the Real time Environment and all the Templates used in the Testing.
All in can say abt testing is,Manual is quiet easy ,But u need to concentrate more on the Automation tool(Choose any of the automation tool and be perfect in that).
Ppl use qtp ,which is easy and it is used for Functional testing.so itz up to u to go for Qtp or any other tools.
Wish u a gud luck in the Testing Namrata..Hope u do wel and Be confident in ur answering !.
I m working in the Testing platform and so i just gave u my view..
If itz beyond ur reach, Then just Forgive me Namrata.
Regards,
Me.Gud luck 4ur career!

#226 Anjali Nair on 01.18.09 at 12:15 pm

Software testing is a process of executing a program with the intent of finding errors by applying valid as well as invalid inputs and verifying the expected outputs whether its as per the user perspectives.It can be done manually and automatically.
Manual testing : Testing the software manually by applying positive(valid) and negative(invalid) inputs and verifying the expected outputs.
There are mainly two types of Manual Testing.
1) Static Testing : Non execution based.
2) Dynamic Testing : Execution based.
Automation Testing : Testing the software by using automated testing tools.

#228 Jaanu on 01.20.09 at 8:50 am

Even I have faced this kind of quetion in my earlier career. Actually, have you told …. Unique email id in your whole story. I have told interviwer about evrything in every angle but the only answer they have expected is that the word “Unique” ….!
Keep Hunting! :-) Success is ours!

#229 Jaanu on 01.20.09 at 9:37 am

@ Ashwini

I raise my right hand for SQTL. because I am the X-student of SQTL Mumbai 1st Batch in Ghatkopar !!!! I feel proud to be a SQTL Student :-) I have done my course in the year 2004. Now working for a US based Software Company.

You can join STQL but better you can do in Metro City because you will get more oppourtunity over there.
All the best….

#230 sobha on 01.20.09 at 12:00 pm

hi janu,

Thanks for your information can u please explain about the unique mail id concept ? and what is the expansion of SQTL ,is it located in chennai

#231 Jaanu on 01.20.09 at 2:19 pm

Previously SQTL named as Software Quality Testing Labs. Here you can get full address all over india branch.
http://www.sqtl.com/areas-of-operations.php

Reg Test plan you can visit http://jaanujeeva.blogspot.com/2009/01/test-plan.html

My Answer :
1) the limit of username field. I mean the data type of this field in DB and the field size. Try adding more characters to this field than the field size limit.
2) Repeat above case for number fields. Insert number beyond the field storage capacity. This is called typically a boundary test.
3) For username field try adding numbers and special characters in various combinations. (Characters like !@#$%^&*()_+}{”:?><,./;’[]). If not allowed specific alert message should be displayed to the user.
4) all the above above special character combination for all the input fields on your sign up page having some validations.
Like Email address field, URL field validations etc.
5) Many applications crash for the input field containing ‘
(single quote) and ” (double quote) examples field like: “Vijay’s web”.
you can try it in all the input fields one by one.
6) Try adding only numbers to input fields having validation to enter only characters and vice versa.
7) If URL validation is there then see different rules for url validation and add urls not fitting to the rules to observe the system behavior.
Example urls like: vijay.com/?q=vijay’s!@#$%^&*()_+}{”:?><,./;’[]web_page. Also add urls containing http:// and https:// while inserting into url input box.
8 ) If your sign up page is of some steps like step 1 step 2 etc. then try changing parameter values directly into browser address bar. Many times urls are formatted with some parameters to maintain proper user steps.
Try altering all those parameters directly without doing anything actually on the sign up page.
9) Do some monkey testing manually or automating (i.e. Insert whatever comes in mind or random typing over keyboard) you will come up with some observations.
10) See if any page is showing JavaScript error either at the browser left bottom corner or enable the browser settings to display popup message to any JavaScript error.

few years back I was sticky to all these tips…
These are known as negative test cases.

Once we used to do in this way .. sometimes we forget to do with the right data. We don’t even if we give correct and valid data application may not react accordingly.. In that case try always with valid data once and than do monkey testing.

Imagine you are the interviewer hope you must be statisfied in this answer right? butttt …..

Atlast …. My Interviwer was expecting me to say that User name should be “unique”

I don’t know whats your interviewer was expecting from you?

Anyhow I got my Cup tea!

Best Luck! Keep hunting …

#242 Ash on 03.16.09 at 4:08 pm

@ jaanu
can u tell me ur email id??

#243 Jaanu on 03.20.09 at 1:05 pm

@ Ash
We can do system testing by both manual and auto.

System testing falls within the scope of black box testing, and should require no knowledge of the inner design of the code or logic.

a. The purpose of Unit is to detect any inconsistencies in the single Module.

b. The purpose of integration testing is to detect any inconsistencies between the software units that are integrated together.

c.System testing is a more limiting type of testing; it seeks to detect defects both within the “inter-assemblages” and also within the system as a whole.

#263 Jaanu on 07.02.09 at 9:49 am

@ Sharada

Non-functional testing covers that part of the application
in which the functionality of the application is
irrelevant. For example, look and feel[GUI] testing.

Negative testing is nothing but testing the functionality
with invalid inputs and conditions

if u are a fresher never think about salary. getting a chance is a gud thing. remember one thing

How QTP can handel situation if the URL of the web application changes when project comes for regression testing..as recording was done on some other URL and for regression the URL is different
for eg for cycle 1st when recording is done its 192.168.20.100/some application name and
2nd time its 192.166.10.104/some application name ,

for all pages the URL is changed and the recorded testcases will fail as URLs does not match…

and again rework is to be done …..how this can be handled as applications functionality remains same and only URL of pages are changed

@ Dipti ,
Samples questions you will get from google itself.

http://www.google.co.in/search?q=software+testing+intrview+questions&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

We can’t be sure that interviewer will ask only these question. Try to find out some details about the company from About us page, Collect the technologies which they are using. Even though we have more experience in our resume, we may lack of theoretical knowledge of those cases, so brush up yourself with some basic question like what is testing, QA?, QC?, Verification?, validation?, unit?, integrity?, system?, acceptance?, load?, stress? volume? Equivalence partitioning? boundary value analysis? error guessing? automation? manual & automation? some tools knowledge?, which bug tracker u have used?, used of bug tracker? bug? error? fault? mistake? technologies used like, Java, .net, php, Cake Php and & environment like OS Commerce, Jumla, LAMP etc., SDLC?, STLC? testing models? and some live experience may help you to answer lively many questions. Having DB knowledge is more advantage nowadays…

@Ekta

Is it easy work to find bugs in an application?

Easy when we do these ;

1: Check for inconsistency within the product
2: Check for the Inconsistency on the purpose of the product
3: Check for inconsistency with the product versions
4: Check for inconsistency with the image a company is trying to portray
5: Check for inconsistency with a comparable product
6: Check for inconsistency with claims that are made about the product
7: Check for Inconsistency with user expectations on the product
8: Check for the Inconsistency in regards to legal requirements.
9:Talk to developers on how they have coded a piece of function(s). This may sometimes reveal scenarios
that they may have been missed out and hence chances of finding bugs becomes higher for those
scenarios.
10: Give rest to your brain and eyes. Tired eyes may miss, an easy to see bugs.

#292 Govardhan Reddy M on 11.02.09 at 12:18 pm

Dear Ms.Prachi (#290),
Hope it should be “Planned Passed” instead of “Planned Passed Target”!

Purely speaking,
No, There is no need for a test engineer to estimate the “Planned Passed” (may be “Planned Passed Target”).

If under any circumstances, If required, But that should not be based on previous testing experience. But based on the SRS/PRD.

The only significance of this column in test report is, Just to estimate percentage of pass criteria before actual execution.

This is not required actually. As you are discussing about this, means that, may be your client is looking for that column as well – I guess!

A simple test plan consists of:
1. Name (project_version)
2. Test Name (field/functionality name)
3. Design step (Summary of the test case)
4. Description (Actual steps to be followed)
5. Expected Result
6. Actual Result
7. Pass/Fail Criteria
8. Priority
9. Estimated Time (average time to execute the test
case, it will be by default 30 min to each test case).
9. Platform (CLI/BBI)
10. Notes (any notes if required)

If client is willing means, Then no other way, We have to add.

What do you mean by Ticking testing.. Please explain it…

#296 VijayD on 11.17.09 at 2:15 pm

Hi Jyoti,

Interesting, I never heard this – Ticking testing.

But after googling it, got to understand that, “Ticking box testing”, which involves not doing any testing.

Sounds like its a part of UAT, where customer can have a list of checkpoints with Y/N ‘Tick-boxes’ to validate the application by the end user. That means, there is NO testing involved.

I am just wondering where did you come across with this question.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
VijayD

#297 Govardhan Reddy M on 11.17.09 at 2:23 pm

Dear Ms. Jyoti (#297),
FYI that, It is referred as ticking-box testing which is
a widely used philosophy of testing, in which no testing is done after the project is fairly well debugged — the program is given to customer’s for trial and acceptance (sd/- Robert Kruse)

Hope now you are clear – I guess!

#298 Govardhan Reddy M on 11.17.09 at 2:27 pm

Dear Mr. Gohul Krishnan (# 297),

1. Writing a document (Test Design Document) with
little information about the product/project/process,
In which new features are added.

2. Means that, Just based on the HLD but not based on
the LLD (because some times LLD won’t get authored
by development team due to lack of time or because
of busy with some other development tasks with
high priority).

3. At a sudden, If the test engineer is asked to do
testing in another project which is little relevant to
the current project but not ease to understand easily
that too by providing little period of time to read,
understand, author test plan, execute, run and
report.

4. Often it happens, When one of the vital team
member left the company all of a sudden may be
because of nice opportunity with another employer
or due to some personal reasons.

During such times, Test engineer of the same team
will be asked to carry out those tasks even though
these tasks are new to this test engineer (how ever
minimal documentation will be provided to
understand what is what of that feature BUT WITH
NO SUFFICIENT TIME).

#299 Swapna Vijay on 11.24.09 at 11:43 pm

Hey deeksha #278, its very simple
Have a file lets say constants.vbs
define like this
url = “www.yahoo.com”

In your script lets say test.mts, include the above file and use it

for eg
systemutil.run “iexplore.exe”, url

so when ever there is a change in the url value,just go update constants.vbs file

Hope this helps.

#300 VijayD on 11.25.09 at 9:03 am

@#278,
Yes, Swapna is correct.

And also you can have environment variables(.xml or .txt file),

1) Declare all these kind of variables in a text file (variables.txt),

strURL = “http://192.166.10.104/login.jsp”
strBrowser = “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”

2) In your QTP test, File >> Settings> Environment >> User-defined >> Export >> Browse this file variables.txt >> Apply, now you can see all the variables defined in the variables.txt in the Environment area.

3) Use the below statements in your QTP test,
strTempURL = Environment.Value(“url”)
systemutil.Run strBrowser,strTempURL

Hope this helps.

Hi,

any one send the details of penetration testing to my mail id.
induces@gmail.com

#306 VENKAT on 01.17.10 at 6:54 am

- Penetration testing (also called pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or Web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit.

Pen tests can be automated with software applications or they can be performed manually. Either way, the process includes gathering information about the target before the test (reconnaissance), identifying possible entry points, attempting to break in (either virtually or for real) and reporting back the findings.

The main objective of penetration testing is to determine security weaknesses. A pen test can also be used to test an organization’s security policy compliance, its employees’ security awareness and the organization’s ability to identify and respond to security incidents.

Penetration tests are sometimes called white hat attacks because in a pen test, the good guys are attempting to break in.

Pen test strategies include:

Targeted testing
Targeted testing is performed by the organization’s IT team and the penetration testing team working together. It’s sometimes referred to as a “lights-turned-on” approach because everyone can see the test being carried out.

External testing
This type of pen test targets a company’s externally visible servers or devices including domain name servers (DNS), e-mail servers, Web servers or firewalls. The objective is to find out if an outside attacker can get in and how far they can get in once they’ve gained access.

Internal testing
This test mimics an inside attack behind the firewall by an authorized user with standard access privileges. This kind of test is useful for estimating how much damage a disgruntled employee could cause.

Blind testing
A blind test strategy simulates the actions and procedures of a real attacker by severely limiting the information given to the person or team that’s performing the test beforehand. Typically, they may only be given the name of the company. Because this type of test can require a considerable amount of time for reconnaissance, it can be expensive.

Double blind testing
Double blind testing takes the blind test and carries it a step further. In this type of pen test, only one or two people within the organization might be aware a test is being conducted. Double-blind tests can be useful for testing an organization’s security monitoring and incident identification as well as its response procedures.

#301,302 Thx swapna , vijayD..

one more question is

suppose for eg URL is 192.168.10.18/application1/form1 , then next link changes it to 192.168.10.18/application1/form 2 …n so on

in this if 192.168.10.18 changes to 192.168.10.20 and rest remain same i.e 192.168.10.20/application1/form1 , 192.168.10.20/application1/form2

so only parent part of URL is changed and rest of the link remain same

so only parent part of URL can be defied in file or as an envirnoment variable in QTP and rest application1/form1 and application1/form2 need not change
so this can be handled in QTP if so please let know

It will be of g8 help

Thx

I answered, by using ascii code we can test….so he replied but how, after that i was not having answer….Can u give me the explaination for the above question. And how we can perform testing for security purposse?

#312 Govardhan Reddy M on 02.12.10 at 10:43 am

Dear Ms. Tejaswini (#313),
Just say that, I’m going to cover the below:
1. User cannot see the exact strings.
2. User cannot do copy.
3. User can paste.
4. Right click should not work.
5. Field lenght validation.
6. Combination of strings/characters validation.
7. User entered data selection.
8. Selection of password strings using “shift + end/home”, and copying (by pressing “control + c”) and opening a notepad/wordpad/excel etc and doing paste (control + v), Should not work.
9. Password should get encrypted as per the encryption algorithm. (md5/sha). This testing can be done, by capturing the frame.

If you know, Then try to say/convey what you know.
Don’t guess on your own, Because interviewers are intelligent enough to ask few more questions based on your answers.

If you don’t know, Better say, I don’t know.

Good luck.

TC1 : Typing of password should be displayed as “*” . no characters should be displayed

TC2 : Inserting of password [ by copy paste] may be allowed on front end but should not be allowed on application scripting

TC3 : Attempt to copy paste of typed password in the text field should be failed

TC4 : The entered data should not be displayed in the URL

TC5 : Login successfully and make logout Click the back button on browser page the page should not be displayed. [should ask for the user to redo login
process] it will go on . ….[but becomes too exhaustive]

kindly mail me at shilpa30987@gmail.com………..thanks

#323 Govardhan Reddy M on 03.27.10 at 10:26 am

Dear Ms. Shilpa (# 324),

Ticking-Box Testing:
——————–
It is referred as ticking-box testing which is a widely used philosophy of testing, in which no testing is done after the project is fairly well debugged — the program is given to customer’s for trial and acceptance (sd/- Robert Kruse)

Mutation Testing: Developer does, By injecting mutants (small changes in a program), Just to see how far the program will malfunction (effect of the bug, severity of the bug). Here small changes in program refers to, Making the program with some errors.
Class Testing: Part of developer testing. (Unit testing). Goal is to make sure that, Least case, Each class has to tested once (class has to be called and tested).

GUI Testing: Usability, Compatibility, Stress, Performance, Load, Cross platform, Check boxes, Broken links, Spell checks, Help document, Browser standards.

Good luck.

In my interview mostly i face this question so please answer me this question.
I f my company is using loadrunner for load testing it can generate 1000’s of user at a time and i can test my application but if there is no load runner in my company then as a tester how can i test my web application for load testing.

#328 ekta on 04.18.10 at 2:35 pm

or
what is the procedure for load testing in this condition.

#329 Prasad on 04.18.10 at 2:50 pm

Performanc testing can be done by manually and by using loadrunner.

if your company dosn’t have loadrunner, your company can do it manually, but the results wont be concurrent. it varies from one iteration to another iteration.

#330 Govardhan Reddy M on 04.19.10 at 2:57 am

Dear Mr. Venkatesh (# 326),
In 7 months, I hope you’re not thorough with manual testing concepts. Before going to automation, Just make sure that, You’re all most learnt all testing process pertaining to manual instead of just running ahead for automation. Just advice.

If you’re interested in functionality testing, Then go ahead with QTP tool, If you’re interested in performance testing, Then go ahead with LoadRunner.

Decision is yours. As I see (based on requirement, Calls are little more for QTP rather than LoadRunner. If you’re really interested in performance, Forget about calls, Just go ahead and learn LoadRunner. Because, Your interest can break the interviews though calls are little less).

Good luck.

#331 Govardhan Reddy M on 04.19.10 at 3:03 am

Dear Ekta (# 329, # 330),
A very valid question. Yes, If commercial tools are not available definitely we’ve to go for free wares. So,
The solution is Badboy! tool. Using Badboy! tool, However it supports 1000 users (concurrent users), But recommended is 999 users only. So, For one more user, We need to run the Badboy! tool second time from the same client/user.

Means from one Badboy application, 999 users and from the second Badboy application one more user. Of course, At a time, We can load 1000 (simulate 1000 users) in a single Badboy! application, But the application may hang/crash – And needs the system to be reboot.

As we’re talking about interview, So just you can tell that, Using Badboy! – Which is a free tool, We can carry out the same testing instead of LoadRunner.

Have a great day ahead!

Good luck.

@Girish
If you have a domain knowledge and 3+yrs of experience nobody will look for your degree whether you have done in regular or corress. (except few company like TCS and Infosys) Keep on search. You will surely get a job. 1 advice don’t leave your current job until you get another. You will get the Sample professional resume in the web.
Best Luck.

#406 Lekha on 06.07.11 at 7:42 am

Hi All,

All the conversations here are very useful. I have a question:

I am a QA(Manual) since 9 months.My package is 1.5lk pa
There is an oppurtunity in my brothers company which is mobile testing on different OS used. The module is a stock product used in different OS of mobiles like blackberry,iphone etc.
They need a Tester (Developer side Tester).
He says i get a chance to write code in Jsp,Servlets and paid 3lk pa.
But my sceniors here say its not useful as QA track is different and higher than Tester.

Someone kindly suggest me if waiting in QA track for automation is better or Should i move to my brothers company?

The project i work is being automated by next month. So i may get a chance in moving to automation and am planning my certification in HP(QTP)

Hi,
I have a small doubt. Please clarify.
I’m doing manual testing on a web app. In the same website there are two different pages for logins, each of it having different purpose.
For example, http://www.abc.com/xyzlogin.aspx and http://www.abc.com/pqrlogin.aspx. I logged in to both the pages in the same browser, but different tabs or windows.
Now, if i log out at one of the sites, the user at the other site also getting logged out, even though the login names are different.
Is this the behavior of any other sites in general? Is it acceptable?

#438 pravina on 06.21.12 at 12:20 pm

Hi,
I’m doing manual testing on a web application.
I’ve a small doubt in that. Please clarify.
If there are 2 pages in the same website, each page having a login form, which serve different purposes.
If both pages are opened in same browser and logged in.
On Logout at one of the pages, the user at other page also getting logged out even though the usernames are different.

Is it behaving correctly?

#439 Shankar on 07.19.12 at 7:18 pm

Hi Pravina,

Give me some real time examples so that i can answer your question, since if you talk about abc site you are talking about particular website which allow only one user to login at once example yahoo, gmail, facebook untile unless you logout, you can’t try multiple logins in one website on one web browser and more ever it will not allow.

Regards,
Shankar

#446 Ankita on 09.26.12 at 5:16 am

Hi Vijay

This is the 1st time I am visiting your blog, its very impressive. It is really nice of you to provide this online help :)

I need some serious suggestions from you. I recently got placed in a highly reputed MNC and am working in application support for 1.5 months (trainee) and I find it very frustrating, specially the different shifts and the monotonous work (plus the office politics):( When I was in college I enjoyed testing and learning about it. I feel that I should do a job which I enjoy. I wanted to go into testing but my company offered me support job. Can you please suggest me what I need to do to switch to testing. They say I cant switch before 1 year. And things will change a lot in 1 year –
-I will have a support job tag( we seriously dont work on any technology, just the tools)
-As I couldnt work on any technology, what will I do?? The interviewer after 1 year will simply kick me out.
-I am 2011 passed out, so applying in other mnc will not work. And I like my current company. I want to work here only, as a tester.

Do I need to do any course? I am IBM RFT certified, other than that I know unit testing (I have done unit test case on my college project). I am not sure as how testing in corporate works. Please enlighten me on that and procedure to switch as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot..

had to ask!

#451 Krishna on 04.22.13 at 9:26 am

Hi

This is an IBM Interview Question …
When you find bug, you are going to Assign to Developer, developer has fixed that bug and send back to testing once again the bug was re-open, but thing is that when u r going to re-assign into developer he will not agree because it is working fine with developer side, but not working testing side,

here what kind of u r going to ask for the developer, what kind of tricky question you are going to ask to the developer

pls any one can answer this question…..

i looking forward to answer as soon as possible ..

with regards

#454 Harish on 07.20.13 at 7:15 pm

@ Krishna,

1) SRS-> This is the spec (Functional spec) given by client/Vendor to develop/test the applicaiton, Based on this spec we will define HLD (usually Arch/sr.dev are the one who defines this-Based on the company strategy)

2) Project Arch-> Your question is incomplete. Let me know what project you are working on.

You need to explain about your project Arch, Where its 2-tier/3-tier/N-tier (How the communication happens, in simple words its like a blue-print of your project)
