  • 1. ABC of Testing
  • 2. Before Beginning Developers Vs Testers - Common Mindset – – Development is a highly skillful, tedious job A developer is an expert who always will have more skill set as compared to a tester – A Tester has to have developmental skill set to find the errors in the application. A Tester is a proactive person and needs to think ahead of developer. Reality –
  • 3. What is Software Testing Testing is to –  Ensure that the software product works according to the Specifications.  Identify the defects in the software Product.  Check if the Software is user friendly and easy to operate.  Suggest improvements in the existing working product. 
  • 4. Need for Testing of the Software product A Software Application is a developed product & not manufactured Product  There is no standardised mechanical process of development for an application  The Testing ensures the  ◦ Precision of Application Functionality ◦ Requirements given are fulfilled
  • 5. Ensuring Precision Common Error-Prone Areas  Athematic Calculations on data  Data Validations  Data Editing and processing  Data Comparing and merging  Data searches that gives incorrect or incomplete output results  Defining data relationship  Coding errors  Incorrect logic destabilizing existing business process
  • 6. SDLC And Software Testing Initiation Requirement Analysis Planning Development Testing Defect Tracking Designing Deployment Maintenance
  • 7. Software Testing Life Cycle  The Test Process is the formal process designed for the Testing of the software  The Test Team along with the development team achieves the goal of delivering a perfect software system
  • 8. Test Process Requirement Analysis Test Execution Defect Tracking Report Bugs Regression Testing Test Panning Bugs Fixed Test Scenario/Use Case Design Integration Testing Design of Test Cases System Testing Creation of Test Data Setup Configuration Performance Testing QA Sign Off QA of Documentation
  • 9. Functional Testing  Usability Testing:  Performance Testing:  Unit Testing:  Integration Testing:  System Testing:  User Acceptance Testing:  User Interface Testing:  Boundary value Analysis:  Database Testing:  Compatibility Testing:  Security Testing:  Scalability Testing:  Localization Testing:  Configuration Testing:  Deployment Testing:  Documentation Testing:  Non functional Testing:  Types of Testing
  • 10. Types of Testing Black Box Testing White Box Testing The Tester does not look into the Code of the Software Program under Test The Tester reads and understands the code under Test. The expertise of Tester required is basic Testing skills The Tester should understand basic Testing as well as writing Test programs. Testing is primarily based in entering input data into the Testing is based on actual writing a Test Program to Software Program mostly through User Interface and input data and read out put data through Application observing the Output. Programming interfaces or function pointers. Automation is limited to automate entering data into and In addition to Automating the entering and reading reading the output from the User Interface. input data it includes automates testing code functions, decision making algorithms and interfaces. Also checks the Test Coverage of the Software Program Usually Database Testing is not involved in this. Tester might not be aware of the Database or other storage. This involves Database Testing and the Tester needs to understand the basic RDBMS
  • 11. What is BUG?  Any flaw/fault in the software product which is a Defect is called a Bug in the Software terminology.
  • 12. A BUG Life Cycle A Bug is identified by the Tester. The Tester enters it in the defect tracking System. Bug Status: NEW The Test Lead reviews the Bug. The Test Lead assigns it to the Developer. Bug Status: Assigned The Developer corrects the code. The Developer changes the status and assigns it to the Tester for verification. Bug Status: Fixed The Tester executes the related tests to find out if the issue is fixed in the code. The Tester changes the status and assigns the Bug to the developer for fixing the issue. YES Bug Status: Reopened Defect is Present? NO The Tester retest the feature ensures that no defect exists and changes the status of the Bug. Bug Status: Verified At the End of the SDLC the Tester marks for all Bugs that are verified Bug Status: Closed
