software testing objective questions

#27 Sujata on 11.28.07 at 8:29 pm

Regarding first question as per my opinion and as per CBOK
Verification answers the question, “Did we build the right system?” while validations
addresses, “Did we build the system right?”.

Plz update the answer accordingly.

Thanks
Sujata

#28 sapna gupta on 11.29.07 at 6:58 am

i want to join software company and so test my knowlege about testing thats it

#29 zakir on 11.29.07 at 1:02 pm

@sujatha

Validation ensures that ‘you built the right thing’ and Verification ensures that ‘you built it right’.
‘Building the right thing’(Validation) refers back to the user’s needs,
while ‘building it right’(Verification) checks that the documented development process was followed.

Simply saying, Verification involves the process in building the product (i.e., all the documentation, walkthroughs, etc)
while Validation involves the actual testing in which we test that the product has been built as per client’s need and requirements has been met.

Hope this clears you sujatha….

#30 test on 11.30.07 at 10:53 am

Q14) Let’s put it this way: Defect management process.
It is a process that constitutes defect prevention. Because to avoid occurance one needs to follow a process..documentation process,etc
Management Reporting: This is to bring it to the notice of the management incase a new process/changes in the existing process are made towards defect prevention/reduction.

Deliverables base-lining is an activity which is not a part of a process as it is mostly taken up at the end of a phase (say regression testing). For the defects that are identified in a given phase can have Defect Prevention Process to avoid them occuring again and the management might approve the process.

henc correct answer is ‘b’

Hi,

according to CSTE study guide, the answer to question 14 should be d. since in the figure given in the study guide, defect prevention, deliverable baselining and yes even management reporting is part of the defect management process.

#70 Cathy on 02.12.08 at 4:02 pm

I agree with Sujata and Thulasi, Regarding first question as per CBOK Verification answers the question, “Did we build the right system?” while validations addresses, “Did we build the system right?”.

#80 Kumar on 03.09.08 at 6:56 am

The answer to Q1 is a.

Verification: comprises all activities that deal with checking whether the processes and standards followed are right. For example, any audit or review will be a verification task. I am sure you will agree reviews are intended to go beyond what the requirements suggest and check for testability of the requirements and also the validity of the requriements. Hence, verification is checking if we are building the right product; i.e. if the product will really help the customer whereas validation (as in testing) checks if we are building the product (as defined in the requirements) right! Hope this clarifies.

I have small doubt in the answer of the Question no 10.

Are u sure that answer is d)

Plz clerify me… thnaks in advance

#197 Girija Prasad Mohanty on 11.26.08 at 9:44 am

Hi Felicia,
The option d is absolutely correct for a better understanding refer below details about requirement phase:
Requirements Phase:
The most effective testing programs start at the beginning of a project, long before any program code has been written. The requirements documentation is verified first; then, in the later stages of the project, testing can concentrate on ensuring the quality of the application code. Expensive reworking is minimized by eliminating requirements-related defects early in the project’s life, prior to detailed design or coding work.
The requirements specifications for a software application or system must ultimately describe its functionality in great detail. One of the most challenging aspects of requirements development is communicating with the people who are supplying the requirements. Each requirement should be stated precisely and clearly, so it can be understood in the same way by everyone who reads it.
If there is a consistent way of documenting requirements, it is possible for the stakeholders responsible for requirements gathering to effectively participate in the requirements process. As soon as a requirement is made visible, it can be tested and clarified by asking the stakeholders detailed questions. A variety of requirement tests can be applied to ensure that each requirement is relevant, and that everyone has the same understanding of its meaning.
Involve Testers from the Beginning
Testers need to be involved from the beginning of a project’s life cycle so they can understand exactly what they are testing and can work with other stakeholders to create testable requirements.
Defect prevention is the use of techniques and processes that can help detect and avoid errors before they propagate to later development phases. Defect prevention is most effective during the requirements phase, when the impact of a change required to fix a defect is low: The only modifications will be to requirements documentation and possibly to the testing plan, also being developed during this phase. If testers (along with other stakeholders) are involved from the beginning of the development life cycle, they can help recognize omissions, discrepancies, ambiguities, and other problems that may affect the project requirements’ testability, correctness, and other qualities.
A requirement can be considered testable if it is possible to design a procedure in which the functionality being tested can be executed, the expected output is known, and the output can be programmatically or visually verified.
Testers need a solid understanding of the product so they can devise better and more complete test plans, designs, procedures, and cases. Early test-team involvement can eliminate confusion about functional behavior later in the project life cycle. In addition, early involvement allows the test team to learn over time, which aspects of the application are the most critical to the end user and which are the highest-risk elements. This knowledge enables testers to focus on the most important parts of the application first, avoiding over-testing rarely used areas and under-testing the more important ones.
Some organizations regard testers strictly as consumers of the requirements and other software development work products, requiring them to learn the application and domain as software builds are delivered to the testers, instead of involving them during the earlier phases. This may be acceptable in smaller projects, but in complex environments it is not realistic to expect testers to find all significant defects if their first exposure to the application is after it has already been through requirements, analysis, design, and some software implementation. More than just understanding the “inputs and outputs” of the software, testers need deeper knowledge that can come only from understanding the thought process used during the specification of product functionality. Such understanding not only increases the quality and depth of the test procedures developed, but also allows testers to provide feedback regarding the requirements.
The earlier in the life cycle a defect is discovered, the cheaper it will be to fix it. The table above outlines the relative cost to correct a defect depending on the life-cycle stage in which it is discovered.
Verify the Requirements
In his work on specifying the requirements for buildings, Christopher Alexander describes setting up a quality measure for each requirement: “The idea is for each requirement to have a quality measure that makes it possible to divide all solutions to the requirement into two classes: those for which we agree that they fit the requirement and those for which we agree that they do not fit the requirement.” In other words, if a quality measure is specified for a requirement, any solution that meets this measure will be acceptable, and any solution that does not meet the measure will not be acceptable. Quality measures are used to test the new system against the requirements.
Attempting to define the quality measure for a requirement helps to rationalize fuzzy requirements. For example, everyone would agree with a statement like “the system must provide good value,” but each person may have a different interpretation of “good value.” In devising the scale that must be used to measure “good value,” it will become necessary to identify what that term means. Sometimes requiring the stakeholders to think about a requirement in this way will lead to defining an agreed-upon quality measure. In other cases, there may be no agreement on a quality measure. One solution would be to replace one vague requirement with several unambiguous requirements, each with its own quality measure.
It is important that guidelines for requirement development and documentation be defined at the outset of the project. In all but the smallest programs, careful analysis is required to ensure that the system is developed properly. Use cases are one way to document functional requirements, and can lead to more thorough system designs and test procedures. (In most of this book, the broad term requirement will be used to denote any type of specification, whether a use case or another type of description of functional aspects of the system.)
In addition to functional requirements, it is also important to consider nonfunctional requirements, such as performance and security, early in the process: They can determine the technology choices and areas of risk. Nonfunctional requirements do not endow the system with any specific functions, but rather constrain or further define how the system will perform any given function. Functional requirements should be specified along with their associated nonfunctional requirements. (Chapter 9 discusses nonfunctional requirements.)
Following is a checklist that can be used by testers during the requirements phase to verify the quality of the requirements. Using this checklist is a first step toward trapping requirements-related defects as early as possible, so they don’t propagate to subsequent phases, where they would be more difficult and expensive to find and correct. All stakeholders responsible for requirements should verify that requirements possess the following attributes.
• Correctness of a requirement is judged based on what the user wants. For example, are the rules and regulations stated correctly? Does the requirement exactly reflect the user’s request? It is imperative that the end user, or a suitable representative, be involved during the requirements phase. Correctness can also be judged based on standards. Are the standards being followed?
• Completeness ensures that no necessary elements are missing from the requirement. The goal is to avoid omitting requirements simply because no one has asked the right questions or examined all of the pertinent source documents.
Testers should insist that associated nonfunctional requirements, such as performance, security, usability, compatibility, and accessibility, are described along with each functional requirement. Nonfunctional requirements are usually documented in two steps:
• A system-wide specification is created that defines the nonfunctional requirements that apply to the system. For example, “The user interface of the Web system must be compatible with Netscape Navigator 4.x or higher and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x or higher.”
• Each requirement description should contain a section titled “Nonfunctional Requirements” documenting any specific nonfunctional needs of that particular requirement that deviate from the system-wide nonfunctional specification.
• Consistency verifies that there are no internal or external contradictions among the elements within the work products, or between work products. By asking the question, “Does the specification define every essential subject-matter term used within the specification?” we can determine whether the elements used in the requirement are clear and precise. For example, a requirements specification that uses the term “viewer” in many places, with different meanings depending on context, will cause problems during design or implementation. Without clear and consistent definitions, determining whether a requirement is correct becomes a matter of opinion.
• Testability (or verifiability) of the requirement confirms that it is possible to create a test for the requirement, and that an expected result is known and can be programmatically or visually verified. If a requirement cannot be tested or otherwise verified, this fact and its associated risks must be stated, and the requirement must be adjusted if possible so that it can be tested.
• Feasibility of a requirement ensures that it can be implemented given the budget, schedules, technology, and other resources available.
• Necessity verifies that every requirement in the specification is relevant to the system. To test for relevance or necessity, the tester checks the requirement against the stated goals for the system. Does this requirement contribute to those goals? Would excluding this requirement prevent the system from meeting those goals? Are any other requirements dependent on this requirement? Some irrelevant requirements are not really requirements, but proposed solutions.
• Prioritization allows everyone to understand the relative value to stakeholders of the requirement. Pardee suggests that a scale from 1 to 5 be used to specify the level of reward for good performance and penalty for bad performance on a requirement. If a requirement is absolutely vital to the success of the system, then it has a penalty of 5 and a reward of 5. A requirement that would be nice to have but is not really vital might have a penalty of 1 and a reward of 3. The overall value or importance stakeholders place on a requirement is the sum of its penalties and rewards-in the first case, 10, and in the second, 4. This knowledge can be used to make prioritization and trade-off decisions when the time comes to design the system. This approach needs to balance the perspective of the user (one kind of stakeholder) against the cost and technical risk associated with a proposed requirement (the perspective of the developer, another kind of stakeholder).
• Unambiguousness ensures that requirements are stated in a precise and measurable way. The following is an example of an ambiguous requirement: “The system must respond quickly to customer inquiries.” “Quickly” is innately ambiguous and subjective, and therefore renders the requirement untestable. A customer might think “quickly” means within 5 seconds, while a developer may think it means within 3 minutes. Conversely, a developer might think it means within 2 seconds and over-engineer a system to meet unnecessary performance goals.
• Traceability ensures that each requirement is identified in such a way that it can be associated with all parts of the system where it is used. For any change to requirements, is it possible to identify all parts of the system where this change has an effect?
To this point, each requirement has been considered as a separately identifiable, measurable entity. It is also necessary to consider the connections among requirements-to understand the effect of one requirement on others. There must be a way of dealing with a large number of requirements and the complex connections among them. Suzanne Robertson suggests that rather than trying to tackle everything simultaneously, it is better to divide requirements into manageable groups. This could be a matter of allocating requirements to subsystems, or to sequential releases based on priority. Once that is done, the connections can be considered in two phases: first the internal connections among the requirements in each group, then the connections among the groups. If the requirements are grouped in a way that minimizes the connections between groups, the complexity of tracing connections among requirements will be minimized.
Traceability also allows collection of information about individual requirements and other parts of the system that could be affected if a requirement changes, such as designs, code, tests, help screens, and so on. When informed of requirement changes, testers can make sure that all affected areas are adjusted accordingly.
As soon as a single requirement is available for review, it is possible to start testing that requirement for the aforementioned characteristics. Trapping requirements-related defects as early as they can be identified will prevent incorrect requirements from being incorporated in the design and implementation, where they will be more difficult and expensive to find and correct.
After following these steps, the feature set of the application under development is now outlined and quantified, which allows for better organization, planning, tracking, and testing of each feature.

Q8. We can achieve complete statement coverage but still miss bugs because:
A. The failure occurs only if you reach a statement taking the TRUE branch of an IF statement, and you got to the statement with a test that passed through the FALSE branch.
B. The failure depends on the program’s inability to handle specific data values, rather than on the program’s flow of control.
C. Both A and B
D. We are not required to test code that customers are unlikely to execute.

Q9. Who is responsible for conducting test readiness review?

Plz answer the following question—–

If a website like MSN search engine is given 2u to test , wht r the important test cases will u write for testing??

1. Functional,Nevigational,Performance,Stress
2. Only functional and nevigational
3. Only Performance ,stress & load
4. None of the above

#225 Ash on 03.07.09 at 4:36 pm

Usability relates to –

1. The degree to which the system performs its intended functions
2. the degree of efforts needed to learn,operate,prepare I/P,& interprete O/P
3. The ability of s/w to be transfred from one envirnment to another
4. the degree to which the s/w is expected to perform its required function under

#226 Hi on 03.09.09 at 6:05 am

1. Functional,Nevigational,Performance,Stress
2. Only functional and nevigational
3. Only Performance ,stress & load
4. None of the above

Ans : 1)Obviously we need to do Functional Testing- To check whether the actual functionality is working as per the expectations(here we make sure that each components are functioning correctly) or not.

Coming to Navigation Testing- yes of course we check navigation between pages.This includes such as, when we click on some Links,checking whether its redirected to exact page or not.

Performance/Stress Testing – since MSN search engine is web application and many users access to it at the same time. so we must check performance of this application by creating many virtual users, loging in at same time. And also check how well system performs under heavy load, i,e stress testing.

Usability relates to –

1. The degree to which the system performs its intended functions
2. the degree of efforts needed to learn,operate,prepare I/P,& interprete O/P
3. The ability of s/w to be transfred from one envirnment to another
4. the degree to which the s/w is expected to perform its required function under

ans : 2)

#250 Mayank on 09.26.09 at 3:25 pm

Hello all,

i was going thru the stuff. its really awesome..
i have 1 question..

9. Which, in general, is the least required skill of a good tester?
a. Being diplomatic
b. Able to write software
c. Having good attention to detail
d. Able to be relied on

answer is – b (i.e. – Able to write software)

while i was just going thru page HEADING : – “Top 25 common programming bugs every tester should know” and found a gud question..

“1) what is manual testing actually(in real time scenario)?
2)is it learnable by fresh graduates?
3)do we need to know any programming languages?”

Concerntrate on question 3 and the above question mentioned..
if 3 – is NO.. (no need to know any language), then i dont think so that “Able to write software” is quite a gud answer…

any comments for experts plz…?

#256 Govardhan Reddy M on 11.16.09 at 12:18 pm

Dear Ms.Anita Nere (# 255),
First hunt a job as a fresher, Instead of doing software testing certifications. Because fresher period is the only time where you need to make efficient use for gettting a job.

Once you get the job in hand, Then you can easily go ahead and do testing certifications.

If you are still curious about certifications, Then its better to have CSTE (Certified Software Test Engineer).
Frankly speaking certifications for freshers will have no weightage (to the best of my knowledge).

Good luck.

Govardhan Reddy M,

“Do the right thing!”

#257 Aruna Kaushik on 11.16.09 at 1:32 pm

Hi Hussain,
The difference b/w ‘Verification and Validation can be identify with the following example-
EX- The hubble space telescope was launched in to the orbit around eairth, and it uses the large mirror to magnify the objects. Extreme precision and accuracy was the major concern for the construction fo the mirror, but actually testing the mirror was not feasible. Therefore the only means to check it was to carefully measure all its attributes and compare the measurements with the specification.

After the measurement, as soon as it was launched, the images it returned was out of focus. The reason for this was improper manufacturing of the mirror.
This confirmed that mirror met the specification but not the requirements. i.e Verification was fine, but it was not validated.
So I think you may understand the difference b/w ‘Verification. and ‘Validation’

Verification- Are we building the product right?
Velidation- Are we building the right product?

#258 Aruna Kaushik on 11.16.09 at 1:37 pm

Hi Govardhan Reddy M,
I have 3 years of exp in manual testing,
But I do not have computer background, bcoz I have done Msc in Physics,
So just planing for any type of certification in Testing.
As u had rplied for (# 255), Can u please elobrate this more, so i can have a beter idea.
Or please send me the details on my id-

#259 Aruna Kaushik on 11.16.09 at 1:51 pm

Hi Santosh,
Please go through this for ur question in comment (#254),
Statement Coverage- This technique attempts to write enough test cases to execute every statement at least once.
TERI-(Test effectivness ratio)= statements exercised/total statement
EX-
void function eval (int A, int B, int X)
{
if (A>1) and (B=0)
then X=X/A;
if (A=2) or (X>1)
then X=X+1;
}

Statement coverage test:-
1) A=2, B=0, X=3 (X can be assigned any value)

#260 Govardhan Reddy M on 11.17.09 at 6:30 am

Dear Ms. Aruna Kaushik (#259),
Good to see that you have 3 years of manual testing experience. As most of the employers won’t give much priority to the certifications and rather they look at the testing skills during the time of the interview, So, During fresher period, Its good to get a job instead of utilizing that fresher time for certifications and all.

Even for experienced test engineers also the situation is the same. But to speak more about it, If client prefers certified candidates, Then the employers will be giving priority to those candidates who did certifications.

But in your case, I always suggest you to do certifications as you are not from computer background. To the best of my knowledge, I advice you to do CSTE (Certified Software Test Engineer) and then ISTQB (Basic/Advanced).

These certifications are added advantage to us for competing the others as well as during the time of hike/appraisal etc.,

CSTE mock test 1,2,3 & 4 papers will be sent to your email id (which I’m having).

Good luck Aruana.

Thanks & Regards
V S Reddy

#284 Govardhan Reddy M on 01.25.10 at 6:59 am

Dear Ms. Vrushali (# 277),
1. Due to power failures besides UPS failures, If the
system(s) get shutdown, No one can do anything
related to work. (Either developer or test engineer).

2. If 2 scripts are failed, We’ve possibility to run only
those two scripts which are failed instead of running
all those 12 scripts again. Because based on the
results given by the tool, We can come to know
which is passed and which is failed. But running of
scripts independently is possible if one script is not
linked with the other (This is to the best of my
knowledge).

11. The process starting with the terminal modules is called -
a. Top-down integration
b. Bottom-up integration
c. None of the above
d. Module integration

Answer for this must be ‘a’ and ‘b’ both.

Reason: ‘Terminal’ Module is a node from where data starts and terminates too. In a software product, the ‘terminals’ where data terminates are also the same nodes from where the data had started initially. So, the data can either starts from a ‘top node’ or from the ‘bottom node’, both nodes are called as ‘Terminal Nodes’. So the process starting with the terminal modules would be either ‘top-down integration’ or ‘bottom-up integration’. Both answers are correct.

Testing:
Is the process of identifying defects, where a defect is any variance between actual and expected results.

“A process of analyzing a software item to detect the differences between existing and required conditions (that is defects/errors/bugs) and to evaluate the features of the software item”

DEFECT: Mismatch between the requirements, or unexpected result or wrong calculations.
BUG: Deviation from the expected result, or If something is already documented to be implemented and implementation is not consistent as per requirement then it’s a BUG.

ERRORS: When we get the wrong output i.e. syntax error, logical error, or programmatically mistake lead to error.

Failure: When everything is correct but we are not able to get result. Or When software is released, the customers found some defect or application may be crash by using any wrong functionality that is called software failure.
Software Testing
Testing with a Purpose

Software testing is performed to verify that the completed software package functions according to the expectations defined by the requirements/specifications. The overall objective to not to find every software bug that exists, but to uncover situations that could negatively impact the customer, usability and/or maintainability.

It involves following stages
• Preparation of the test strategy

• Creation of the test scripts
• Execution of the test scripts
• Analysis of the test results


• Reporting of the bugs
• Performing regression testing

Test Design (Test Scenario/Test Cases/Test Data) (Test Engineer)
Test Execution (Executing test case and reporting defect) (Test Engineer)
Test Closure (Test Summary Report) (Test TL/PM/Test Engineer)
OR

Why testing is important?
Testing is about verifying that what was specified; what was delivered. In simple word software is activity to check whether the actual result match the excepted result. It is very important to understand that testing is also continuous process. Testing does not stand alone it is intimately dependent activity but it is separate process activity. Testing is the activity is the reduce the defect

Who does testing?
• Software Tester
• Software Developer
• Project Lead/Manager
• End User

Different companies have difference designations for people who test the software on the basis of their experience and knowledge such as Software Tester, Software Quality Assurance Engineer, and QA Analyst etc.

It is not possible to test the software at any time during its cycle. The next two sections state when testing should be started and when to end it during the SDLC.
When to Start Testing

An early start to testing reduces the cost, time to rework and error free software that is delivered to the client. However in Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) testing can be started from the Requirements Gathering phase and lasts till the deployment of the software. However it also depends on the development model that is being used. For example in Water fall model formal testing is conducted in the Testing phase, but in incremental model, testing is performed at the end of every increment/iteration and at the end the whole application is tested.
Testing is done in different forms at every phase of SDLC like during Requirement gathering phase, the analysis and verifications of requirements are also considered testing. Reviewing the design in the design phase with intent to improve the design is also considered as testing. Testing performed by a developer on completion of the code is also categorized as Unit type of testing.

When to Stop Testing

Unlike when to start testing it is difficult to determine when to stop testing, as testing is a never ending process and no one can say that any software is 100% tested. Following are the aspects which should be considered to stop the testing:

• Testing Deadlines.
• Completion of test case execution.
• Completion of Functional and code coverage to a certain point.
• Bug rate falls below a certain level and no high priority bugs are identified.
• Management decision.

Testing Types
This section describes the different types of testing which may be used to test a Software
during SDLC.
1. Manual Testing
2. Automation Testing

Manual Testing:
This type includes the testing of the Software manually i.e. without using any automated tool or any script. In this type the tester takes over the role of an end user and test the Software to identify any un-expected behavior or bug. There are different stages for manual testing like unit testing, Integration testing, System testing and User Acceptance testing.

Testers use test plan, test cases or test scenarios to test the Software to ensure the completeness of testing. Manual testing also includes exploratory testing as testers explore the software to identify errors in it.

Automation Testing :
Automation testing which is also known as “Test Automation”, is when the tester writes scripts and uses another software to test the software. This process involves automation of a manual process. Automation Testing is used to re-run the test scenarios that were performed manually, quickly and repeatedly Apart from regression testing, Automation testing is also used to test the application from load, performance and stress point of view. It increases the test coverage; improve accuracy, saves time and money in comparison to manual testing.

What to automate: It is not possible to automate everything in the Software; however the areas at which user can make transactions such as login form or registration forms etc, any area where large amount of users’ can access the Software simultaneously should be automated.

When to Automate: Test Automation should be uses by considering the following for the Software:
• Large and critical projects.
• Projects that require testing the same areas frequently.
• Requirements not changing frequently.
• Accessing the application for load and performance with many virtual users.
• Stable Software with respect to manual testing.
• Availability of time.

How to Automate: Automation is done by using a supportive computer language like VB scripting and an automated software application. There are a lot of tools available which can be used to write automation scripts. Before mentioning the tools lets identify the process which can be used to automate the testing:

• Identifying areas within a software for automation.
• Selection of appropriate tool for Test automation.
• Writing Test scripts.

• Development of Test suits.
• Execution of scripts
• Create result reports.
• Identify any potential bug or performance issue.

Following are the tools which can be used for Automation testing:
• HP Quick Test Professional
• Selenium
• IBM Rational Functional Tester
• Silk Test
• Test Complete
• Testing Anywhere
• Win Runner
• Logrunner
• Visual Studio Test Professional
• WATIR

Testing Methods

1) Black Box Testing 2) White Box Testing 3) Gray Box Testing

Black Box Testing
The technique of testing without having any knowledge of the interior workings of the application is Black Box testing. The tester is oblivious to the system architecture and does not have access to the source code. Typically, when performing a black box test, a tester will interact with the system’s user interface by providing inputs and examining outputs without knowing how and where the inputs are worked upon.

Advantages:
• Well suited and efficient for large code segments.
• Code Access not required.
• Clearly separates user’s perspective from the developer’s perspective through visibly defined roles.
• Large numbers of moderately skilled testers can test the application with no knowledge of implementation, programming language or operating systems.

Disadvantages:
• Limited Coverage since only a selected number of test scenarios are actually performed.
• Inefficient testing, due to the fact that the tester only has limited knowledge about an application.
• Blind Coverage, since the tester cannot target specific code segments or error prone areas.
• The test cases are difficult to design.

White Box Testing
White box testing is the detailed investigation of internal logic and structure of the code. White box testing is also called glass testing or open box testing. In order to perform white box testing on an application, the tester needs to possess knowledge of the internal working of the code. The tester needs to have a look inside the source code and find out which unit/chunk of the code is behaving inappropriately.

Advantages:
As the tester has knowledge of the source code, it becomes very easy to find out which type of data can help in testing the application effectively.

• It helps in optimizing the code.
• Extra lines of code can be removed which can bring in hidden defects.
• Due to the tester’s knowledge about the code, maximum coverage is attained
during test scenario writing.

Disadvantages:
• Due to the fact that a skilled tester is needed to perform white box testing, the costs are increased.
• Sometimes it is impossible to look into every nook and corner to find out hidden errors that may create problems as many paths will go untested.
• It is difficult to maintain white box testing as the use of specialized tools like code analyzers and debugging tools are required.

Gray Box Testing
Grey Box testing is a technique to test the application with limited knowledge of the internal workings of an application. In software testing, the term “the more you know the better” carries a lot of weight when testing an application.

Mastering the domain of a system always gives the tester an edge over someone with limited domain knowledge. Unlike black box testing, where the tester only tests the application’s user interface, in grey box testing, the tester has access to design documents and the database. Having this knowledge, the tester is able to better prepare test data and test scenarios when making the test plan.

Advantages:
• Offers combined benefits of black box and white box testing wherever possible.
• Grey box testers don’t rely on the source code; instead they rely on interface definition and functional specifications.
• Based on the limited information available, a grey box tester can design excellent test scenarios especially around communication protocols and data type handling.
• The test is done from the point of view of the user and not the designer.

Disadvantages:
• Since the access to source code is not available, the ability to go over the code and test coverage is limited.
• The tests can be redundant if the software designer has already run a test case.
• Testing every possible input stream is unrealistic because it would take an
unreasonable amount of time; therefore, many program paths will go untested.

Levels of Testing
1) Functional Testing. 2) Non- functional Testing.

Functional Testing:
Unit Testing
Integration Testing
System Testing
Regression Testing
Acceptance Testing

Non-Functional Testing
Performance Testing
Load Testing
Stress Testing
Usability Testing
Security Testing
Portability Testing

Testing Documentation
Testing documentation involves the documentation of Software testing helps in estimating the testing effort required, test artifacts which should be developed before or during the testing of Software. Documentation for coverage, requirement tracking/tracing etc. This section includes the description of some commonly used documented artifacts related to Software testing such as:
• Test Plan
• Test Strategy
• Test Scenario
• Test Case
• Test Script
• Testing Environment
• Test Procedure
• Test Log
• Traceability Matrix

Test Plan:
Test plan is a document with information on a scope of the project, Approach, Schedule of testing activities, Resource or manpower

Test Scenario:

Test Case:

Traceability Matrix:
Traceability Matrix

The Traceability Matrix is to be able to trace from top level requirements to implementation, and from top level requirements to test. It shows the relationship between Test Requirements and Test Cases.
Using Traceability Matrix, we can check that which requirements are covered in which
Test cases and which test case covers which requirements. The same apply for the code too means which codes are covered which requirements and which requirements are covered in which section of the code too.
They are types of traceability matrix:
1. Forward traceability
2. Backward traceability
3. Bidirectional traceability
Requirement———————-?Test Case
Requirement<———————-Test Case
Requirement>internet option >>General tab>>under Browsing history>>Click on setting>>there you find current location of cookies
Basically you can change your browser setting according to your need. If you want that before storing the cookies by web site it will shows prompt message or something warning so you can change the setting or Even you can disable the cookies also.

Cookie Attribute:
Cookie basically come with name-value pair, apart from that server set expiration time, path, cookie domain ,maximum age.

Now the next questing is how to test Cookie? How to do Cookie testing?
Disabling/Deleting the Cookie:
Delete the all cookie set by site which under test. One thing which is important that deleting Cookie you need to close browser so that no pre-session cookies in memory.
After that test those feature and function of the site which require the cookie ,you will come to know that those feature doesn’t work because of deleting those cookies which help to run the feature. That doesn’t mean it’s bug, it’s happened because of the disabling the cookies. It’s might possible that not every user keep the cookie enable, In that case those site require cookie need to be enabled to work the site then the site has to be send message to user that cookie need to be enable to work the site.

Reject Cookie:
You can do testing of cookie by accepting some cookies and rejecting other and check the functionality howspan style=”mso-spacerun:yes”>
iit work by rejecting cookie. For that you need to set your browser’s cookie option to prompt you whenever website attempts to set a cookie and then exercise the functionality.
Corrupt the Cookie:
For that you need to know whether the cookies are stored. Then change the cookie parameter like cookie name, expiry date, session id and all.
Check that Cookie generated by different browser:
Here the site which is under test which need to be check different browser. That different browser site generated the cookie or not .

Check the how Cookie stored sensitive Data:
It’s important that sensitive data need to be stored in encrypted format.Sensitiva data like User credit card ID,User Data etc.So even if some one open the cookies file then can not mess with the data. So that need to be check how the cookie stored the sensitive data.

Test HTML and CSS to ensure that search engines can crawl your site easily. This will include
• Checking for Syntax Errors
• Readable Color Schemas
• Standard Compliance. Ensure standards such W3C, OASIS, IETF, ISO, ECMA, or WS-I are followed.

Test business workflow- This will include
• Testing your end – to – end workflow/ business scenarios which takes the user through a series of webpage’s to complete.
• Test negative scenarios as well, such that when a user executes an unexpected step , appropriate error message or help is shown in your web application.

2) Usability testing

Usability testing has now become a vital part of any web based project. It can carried out by testers like you or a small focus group similar to the target audience of the web application.
Test the site Navigation:
• Menus , buttons or Links to different pages on your site should be easily visible and consistent on all WebPages

Test the Content:
• Content should be legible with no spelling or grammatical errors.
• Images if present should contain and “alt” text

3) Interface testing

Three areas to be tested here are – Application, Web and Database Server
• Application: Test requests are sent correctly to the Database and output at the client side is displayed correctly. Errors if any must be caught by the application and must be only shown to the administrator and not the end user.
• Web Server: Test Web server is handling all application requests without any service denial.
• Database Server: Make sure queries sent to the database give expected results.
Test system response when connection between the three layers (Application, Web and Database) can not be established and appropriate message is shown to the end user.

4) Database Testing

Database is one critical component of your web application and stress must be laid to test it thoroughly. Testing activities will include-
• Test if any errors are shown while executing queries
• Data Integrity is maintained while creating, updating or deleting data in database.
• Check response time of queries and fine tune them if necessary.
• Test data retrieved from your database is shown accurately in your web application

5) Compatibility testing

Compatibility tests ensure that your web application displays correctly across different devices. This would include-

Browser Compatibility Test:
Same website in different browsers will display differently. You need to test if your web application is being displayed correctly across browsers , JavaScript , AJAX and authentication is working fine. You may also check for Mobile Browser Compatibility.

The rendering of web elements like buttons, text fields etc changes with change in Operating System. Make sure your website works fine for various combinations of Operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Mac and Browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari etc.

6) Performance testing

This will ensure your site works under all loads. Testing activities will include but not limited to -
• Website application response times at different connection speeds
• Load test your web application to determine its behavior under normal and peak loads
• Stress tests your web site to determine its break point when pushed to beyond normal loads at peak time.
• Test if a crash occurs due to peak load , how does the site recover from such an event
• Make sure optimization techniques like zip compression , browser and server side cache enabled to reduce load times

7) Security testing

Security testing is vital for e-commerce website that store sensitive customer information like credit cards. Testing Activities will include-
• Test unauthorized access to secure pages should not be permitted
• Restricted files should not be downloadable without appropriate access
• Check sessions are automatically killed after prolonged user inactivity
• On use of SSL certificates , website should re-direct to encrypted SSL pages.

8) Crowd Testing

You will select a large number of people (crowd) to execute tests which otherwise would have been executed a select group of people in the company. Crowd sourced testing is an interesting and upcoming concept and helps unravel many a unnoticed defects.

BUG
Bug can be defined as the abnormal behavior of the software. No software exists without a bug. The elimination of bugs from the software depends upon the efficiency of testing done on the software. A bug is a specific concern about the quality of the Application under Test (AUT)

Bug Life Cycle:

In software development process, the bug has a life cycle. The bug should go through the life cycle to be closed. A specific life cycle ensures that the process is standardized. The bug attains different states in the life cycle. The life cycle of the bug can be shown diagrammatically as follows:

The different states of a bug can be summarized as follows:

1. New
2. Open
3. Assign
4. Test
5. Verified
6. Deferred
7. Reopened
8. Duplicate
9. Rejected and
10. Closed

Description of Various Stages:

1. New: When the bug is posted for the first time, its state will be “NEW”. This means that the bug is not yet approved.

2. Open: After a tester has posted a bug, the lead of the tester approves that the bug is genuine and he changes the state as “OPEN”.

3. Assign: Once the lead changes the state as “OPEN”, he assigns the bug to corresponding developer or developer team. The state of the bug now is changed to “ASSIGN”.

4. Test: Once the developer fixes the bug, he has to assign the bug to the testing team for next round of testing. Before he releases the software with bug fixed, he changes the state of bug to “TEST”. It specifies that the bug has been fixed and is released to testing team.

5. Deferred: The bug, changed to deferred state means the bug is expected to be fixed in next releases. The reasons for changing the bug to this state have many factors. Some of them are priority of the bug may be low, lack of time for the release or the bug may not have major effect on the software.

6. Rejected: If the developer feels that the bug is not genuine, he rejects the bug. Then the state of the bug is changed to “REJECTED”.

7. Duplicate: If the bug is repeated twice or the two bugs mention the same concept of the bug, then one bug status is changed to “DUPLICATE”.

8. Verified: Once the bug is fixed and the status is changed to “TEST”, the tester tests the bug. If the bug is not present in the software, he approves that the bug is fixed and changes the status to “VERIFIED”.

9. Reopened: If the bug still exists even after the bug is fixed by the developer, the tester changes the status to “REOPENED”. The bug traverses the life cycle once again.

10. Closed: Once the bug is fixed, it is tested by the tester. If the tester feels that the bug no longer exists in the software, he changes the status of the bug to “CLOSED”. This state means that the bug is fixed, tested and approved.

25. Inspections can find all the following except
a. Variables not defined in the code
b. Spelling and grammar faults in the documents
c. Requirements that have been omitted from the design documents
d. How much of the code has been covered

Ans-Answer will be option (A), not (D) because there are nothing to do with variable of the inspection team but they walkthrough the code that how much has been covered.
