Context Driven Testing: 7 Basic Principles with an Example

What is context-driven testing

7 Basic Principles of Context-Driven Testing With an Example:

When I drive to the airport, I usually take the freeway that will get me there in the minimum time and avoids tolls. But that day, I took a longer local road route with a toll. Because I wanted a few extra minutes with my friend on the drive, who traveled a very long distance to spend the weekend with our family. The normal worst choice, in this case, turned out to be the best one.

But, consider this.

What if I was low on gas?

What is Component Testing Or Module Testing (Learn With Examples)

What is Component Testing

What is Component Testing also called Module Testing in Software Testing:

A component is the lowest unit of any application. So, Component testing; as the name suggests, is a technique of testing the lowest or the smallest unit of any application.

Component testing sometimes is also referred to as Program or Module Testing.

An application can be thought of a combination and integration of many small individual modules. Before we test the entire system, it is imperial that each component OR the smallest unit of the application is tested thoroughly.

The Differences Between Unit Testing, Integration Testing and Functional Testing

Unit, Integration and Functional Testing

A Detailed Comparison of Unit, Integration and Functional Testing:

For any software application, both Unit testing, as well as Integration testing, is very important as each of them employs a unique process to test a software application.

But any one or even both cannot replace Functional testing at any point.

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 Perform Post-Release Testing Effectively and Minimize Impact of the Release to Live Clients

Post release testing

When I started my career as a QA, I was working with a company that offered its products as SaaS. Production releases were critical and there was a possibility of affecting the functionality for the live clients.

As our client base grew, to manage the risk and minimize the impact of the release to live clients, QA team adopted the post-release testing practice.

This was all new to me and I had so many questions and doubts in my mind:

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.
