How to Perform Software Product Testing – Detailed Process and Methods with Examples

How to product testing

Software Products need their own unique approach to test adequately and correctly. Often times, teams treat them as any other software (i.e. internal applications built for a specific client or team; not accessible by the general public; non-revenue generating) and that is the starting point of trouble.

Software Product Testing needs a custom test style and strategy to add value. Software Product development and sustenance is in itself a complex ecosystem and to thrive testers need to adapt.

Mutation Testing: Testing Technique with a Simple Example

mutation-testing-technique

Sci-Fi fans: Don’t get your hopes up. This isn’t that kind of mutation we are talking about :)

What is Mutation Testing?

Mutation testing is a fault-based testing technique where variations of a software program are subjected to the test dataset. This is done to determine the effectiveness of the test set in isolating the deviations.

It sounds a little complicated, isn’t it?

When to Stop Testing (Exit Criteria in Software Testing)

when to stop testing

Exit criteria in Testing:

“Well begun is half done” – Applies everywhere, even software testing.

Often we see software testers very enthusiastic at the beginning of the project. We create testing documents such as Test Strategy, Test Plan or Test Cases eagerly and enthusiastically.

Then we get to testing software with a BANG! This is only amplified by the interesting defects we find at the beginning of the project. Getting them resolved will only add to our accomplishment.

The 4 Steps to Business Intelligence (BI) Testing: How to Test Business Data

BI testing

Business Intelligence (BI) is a process of gathering, analyzing, and transforming raw data into accurate, efficient, and meaningful information which can be used to make wise business decisions and refine business strategy.

BI gives organizations a sense of clairvoyance. Only the perception is not fueled by extra-sensory ability but by facts.

Business Intelligence testing initiatives help companies gain deeper and better insights so they can manage or make decisions based on hard facts or data.

How to Test Point of Sale (POS) System – Restaurant POS Testing Example

Testing POS system

What is Point of Sale (POS)?

POS alias Point of Sale is a place where transactions take place. You can see POS systems in Retail Stores, Restaurants, Hospitals and almost everywhere these days where payments are involved.

Most of you may very well understand what a barcode reader is or a wireless payment device is (the most used devices for payment transactions) but POS, in reality, involves a lot of components and each of the components needs to be integrated well for it to run successfully.

Business Process Testing (BPT) – How to Simplify and Speed Up the Testing Process Using BPT

Business process testing bpt

In today’s generation of automation testing, Business Process Testing (BPT) has changed the current testing industry standards.

Business process validation is the act of verifying end-to-end business process. It is performed step-by-step to confirm that all business rules are working correctly and when any deviation is found the defects are logged.

This tutorial will give you a complete idea on BPT – How it works, what it includes, its significance, etc.

How Data Driven Testing Works (Examples of QTP and Selenium)

what is Data driven testing

Many times, there are a number of data sets that we have to run the same tests on. And, to create a different test for each data set values is time-consuming and inefficient.

Data Driven Testing overcomes this issue by keeping the data external to Functional tests and loading them when there is a need to extend the automation tests.

In this tutorial, we will discuss Data Driven Testing – What it is, how it works, pros & cons, etc.

A Simple Guide to Interoperability Testing (with Examples)

What is Interoperability Testing

Before understanding the technique of “Interoperability Testing”, Lets first understand the term “Interoperability”.

Interoperability is an ability of one system to interact with another system. This interaction is between 2 different systems or 2 different applications all together.

Many a time Interoperability is confused with Integration, compatibility and portability. Well, there are differences between these techniques.

All In One Guide On Defect Density – Its Importance and How to Calculate It.

Defect density guide

A Guide to defect Density:

Test Metrics are tricky. They are the only way to measure, yet the variety is overwhelming.

You could be collecting something that isn’t giving you the analytics you want. The safest way here is to walk on the well-beaten path.

Almost every team in the world relies on defect Density to understand defect trends.

Today’s article is an all-in-one guide on Defect Density (DD).
