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? Continue reading →

A component is the lowest unit of any application. So Component testing; as the name suggest, is a technique of testing the lowest or the smallest unit of any application.
Component testing sometimes is also referred 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 as a whole, it is imperial that each and every component OR the smallest unit of the application is tested thoroughly.

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

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 →

In the first part of the article series, we understood the nuances of Continuous Delivery (CD) where we have production ready software at any point via continuous feedback loops. Continuous integration (CI) is the real meat behind the CD process and is the reason that makes Continuous Delivery possible.
To understand CI, let’s take the terms at face value and deduce a basic definition. The first word means “ongoing” or “frequent” and the second “merged” or “made part of”. So CI is a process where something is being “merged”-“frequently”.
Logically the next question is: What is the something being merged and where is it merged?
