For any software application, both Unit testing and Integration testing are very important as they each employ unique processes to test the software application. But one or both of them cannot replace Functional testing.
In this article, we will understand Unit, Integration, and Functional testing and clarify the differences between these forms/levels of testing.

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? Continue reading →

Don’t you all love the compare and contrast themed articles? I know I do. It is such a great way to invite thoughts, comments and maybe even, strong disagreement.
Today’s topic is the difference between Retesting and Regression Test.
Let’s begin with Retesting:
Retest means to test again. The reason does not matter. When you repeat a test, you retest. You could retest current version functionality. Or a bug fix, previous version functionality, a test case you just ran, etc.

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. Continue reading →

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. Continue reading →

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. Continue reading →

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. Continue reading →

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. Continue reading →

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. Continue reading →

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). Continue reading →
