Software testing is a process used to determine the exactness and quality of developed computer software. It includes a set of activities conducted with the intent of finding bugs in software. In a nutshell it is a process to check whether the absolute results match the expected results and to make sure that the software system is error free.

Why Software Testing is Important?

Software testing can provide correct information about the quality of software and risk of its failure to users or sponsors. Software testing is genuinely needful to point out the defects and errors that were made during the development phases.

Types of Software Testing:

The different types of testing that may be used to test a software during SDLC to identify errors in the software system are as follows.

1. Manual Testing

2. Automation Testing

What is Manual Software Testing?

In Manual Testing, Testers manually execute test cases without using any automation tools. It helps to find bugs in the software system. Any new application must be manually tested before its testing can be automated. It takes more effort, but is necessary to inspect automation practicality.

What is Automated Software Testing?

Automation testing is an activity of automating the manual process to test the application under test. The purpose of automated testing is to reduce as much of the testing effort as possible with a minimum set of scripts.


Testing Legacy Application Modernization

White Paper By: Zeenyx Software

When a legacy application is modernized, transaction flow may be changed to adjust to the standards and capabilities of the new platform. If tests are automated using a traditional testing tool, those user interface changes would require a significant amount of test maintenance to get tests running on the new platform. AscentialTest provides a short-cut by allowing users to develop...

Continuous Testing for Continuous Delivery: What Does it Mean in Practice?

White Paper By: CA Technologies

Today continuous delivery is enabling modern organizations to become leaders in fast-emerging, technology-driven markets To deliver software that accurately reflects constantly changing user needs, more organizations are moving toward continuous delivery. Continuous testing helps ensure that quality is built in from the requirements, while validating each component at the development...

Model Based Testing and Behavior-Driven Development

White Paper By: CA Technologies

Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) seeks to foster collaboration between the business and IT, inspired by the notion of a ‘ubiquitous language’, taken over from Domain Driven Development. As modern organizations rely increasingly on software that can provide value to its customers, IT teams are required to deliver fully tested software that delivers on changing business needs,...

A.I. for Risk Based Testing and Production Driven Test Coverage

White Paper By: QualiTest Group

Analyzing large amounts of production data by actual users is a very good risk-based approach to testing highly complex systems based on what users actually do instead of all of the theoretical permutations of what a system may need to support. Is software testing capable of employing A.I. approaches, or will human software testers soon be bested by computers as well? This white paper...

Creating Tests with AscentialTest

White Paper By: Zeenyx Software

Earlier creating a test was as easy as navigating through the application under test (AUT), but testing groups quickly discovered that the tests were of no use once the target application changed. Organizations can significantly reduce the duration of testing cycles by adopting the step-based approach to build manual and automated tests. This whitepaper provides insights on how...

Automating Point of Sale Testing

White Paper By: Zeenyx Software

Vendors of Point of Sale (POS) software, system integrators and retailers who develop or customize packaged solutions should make implementing test automation a priority in their testing organizations. Effective test automation for POS software can be developed quickly and efficiently using predefined templates and reusable steps. This whitepaper provides a detailed understanding of the...
