It actually depends. At first, testing requires other skills than programming. If you will became test engineer with programming experience you would be able to automate more efficient and find accidental regressions better. less pressure on work. and again, softare testing could be very responsible job and you can get much pressure. i have java ...

Welcome to community! I believe that manual testing should be always important "till the end of the world". But I also deeply believe that software tester should be familiar with some programming language and script language. But, again, if you are really great manual software tester you will be always valuable employee. Good luck.

You can switch your career from java developer to testing field. Mainly software testing includes : Manual testing Automation testing At first, you should learn what is software testing. What is software testing: Test plan, test cases, test scenarios creation Test design techniques Bug reports using tool like mantis , BT tracker , Jira Software ...

Back end testing is as important as front end testing. We had performed database testing with TestingWhiz tool. Please take a look at this webinar video that we conducted on automated database testing - Webinar Video. You can also learn more on database testing with the articles in learn more section.

I would go with a python solution too, but I am going to suggest that installation of software is so vastly different in process for Windows and /nix that its probably pointless trying to create portable test case code. I suggest you spend some time looking at what exactly an install test comprises. work out what the sucess criteria are that matter to you ...

Yep, been through a lot of this myself. In general, reliable automation with failures that are easy to diagnose can dramatically help increase velocity and confidence and save money. I typically try to create automation that is part of a CI pipeline with the following 2 goals: Ensure I cover at least the happy path of every feature to get immediate ...

The goal of testing is to learn about a product. Of course it can be by finding bugs, but it can also be much more than only that. You may find that a feature is missing than a part of your users will need, that something is confusing, that your product is not usable if user have color blindness. You will discover if your product is fun or boring to use... ...

when you need to test ur site for mobile devices, best and economic thing is user agent. Just go to google.com, enable site emulation by right click on site and go to inspect element and go to Show Drawer (icon something like >= ) then go to Emulation and then to device, now select any kind of device you want to check.

I work as a Manual tester on a big project. My project follows Agile methodology. I test a Web-based application. I sometimes ask my self , that am i giving any value to the stakeholders? So, the value that you are giving to stakeholders is the reduction in the amount of defects that go to production. The cost of fixing a defect drastically increases ...

Tester is just a label on an employee. Testing provides value. It is virtually impossible to write bug-free software, and so software that has not been tested is virtually guaranteed to be buggy. Someone needs to test it. Who tests depends on the circumstances. Some people are good at testing, and some are not. You probably want the person who tests to ...

I vouch for dstat. Simply start it before running the test, it can save results in csv file so you can later xanalyze it with jmeter results.

I had a similar task in the past. In order to have the maximum of flexibility I advice you to you selenium with Java. At the following address, you will find a example how to start: https://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/GettingStarted As your test will be written in Java, you are free to do all the check you wish in database thx to JDBC or verify if ...

With selenium you can insert data into database via a frontend and also retrieve and read the reports in a similar way. It also supports file handling as far as I know. Check out documentation on seleniumhq.org and read the manual and functions. I'm sure you will find the code piece you are looking for in there and them use them to build your logic and ...

For audio quality you can use Matlab PSQM script I used it a long time ago but can't find the reference to it, you can interface Matlab from Perl, Python and probably other languages too. Alternatively you can use the C PESQ code from ITU. A quick found this Python Google Video Quality Tool

Since you need the tools work on both Windows and Linux servers, I don't think there is free tool available fit your needs perfectly. If you can do scripting, something like python which work cross OSes could be a good choice. Or you could consider Java as well if you could. The test transcripts and data could be shared across platforms.

You can use FFplay . Its a command line player which can be invoked through a script(I use perl). Then you can monitor its output for any kind of error. Although it will not give pixel level information but it can be used for high level testing and monitoring of a video stream.

Will suggest the approach to use XML based object repository which is also tool agnostic. Pls refer the link for implementation details:

I realize this question was asked a year ago, so maybe you are not looking anymore. But if you or someone else who finds this question is, I recommend you look at Worksoft Certify. I spent many months analyzing test automation tools - there are a lot out there, and our decision boiled down to either HP UFT or Worksoft Certify. After months of evaluating ...

You can use reportNG. Its the reporting plugin for testNG. You can add your message using Reporter.log("Your Message"); If you want to add your alert messages in report and your project is Maven project then add following in pom.xml <reporting> <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>org.testng.xslt</groupId> ...

You can use the HBase Java API to query hbase, here is some documentation on how that works: http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.1.2/bk_system-admin-guide/content/ch_ha-HBase-query-API.html You can also google "query HBASE with Java API" and you find a bunch of info there on how to do this.

If your server application turns on JAVA you can use jconsole or jvisualvm to monitor it. They are located in your $JAVA_HOME/bin from your server. Before to launch them you need to export your X11 display: export DISPLAY=11.11.111.111:0.0 (Replace 111 by the IP of your client machine) On your server side launch jconsole or jvisualvm, it will be opened on ...

If your application server is Tomcat or JBoss you can query this information via Monitor Results listener In other case it is still possible via PerfMon JMeter Plugin which can collect different server side metrics like CPU, Memory, swap, disk and network IO on almost all platforms. Blazemeter supports all the plugins assuming that you upload associated ...

As far as I know, it's not possible to close a tab or window and open another with Selenium's basic setup. IWebDriver might be what you're looking for as it enables you to control the browser. However, I'm not sure what you'd gain from closing the window and then going to a different URL anyway - maybe you could be more specific as to what you're wanting it ...

You can open 2 browsers by initializing 2 firefox instance and then get() method will open URL in each browser accordingly. Do you want to use 1 firefox instance i.e. open it, close it and open it again ?

(Also answered at the original question on programmers.stackexchange.com) A large part of this mass of tests is for their collection implementations. They've written generic tests that exhaustively test the collection interfaces, and this generates a suite per implementation. See, for example, classes called CollectionAddAllTester, ListIndexOfTester. This ...

It is a Chrome bug that affects all extensions (not only BlazeMeter extension) with multiple versions of Ubuntu. I see its been confirmed as bug in Chrome issue queue and has been assigned. Hopefully will be fixed soon. https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=401655 Some people reported that updating your Kernel to 3.16 or 3.17 fixes the issue. ...

Your question is valid only for the first integration, where you make the first build. You should make a build every time you add something new...integrate and test as often as you can and you will get information.

What do you think? Should you eat one meal at a time and 2 to 3 meals a day? Or should you eat sufficient meals for 30 days at once and enjoy the remaining 29 days? Keep things as simple as possible! Combining everything and testing it all at once may make things too complicated to handle...

Criteria you've specified: Affordable Powerful enough Anything you want to consider? The most affordable is VirtualBox because it's free. The most powerful? I don't have any hard data on which performs the best but when I had to make the choice (last year) between the three applications to run on my MacBook Pro I chose Parallels. At the time ...

Its a yes,Automating your manual test cases gives you good automated results but i am here speaking with reference "CONTIZEE" tool which i used in automating test cases where zero coding knowledge is needed and time saving. Executing a simple test case and a complicated test case needs just needs same effort in this tool.

If you haven't already, search for "model-based testing". To me it seems that your problem fits well to that scheme: create a model of expected behaviour and let the testing tool run millions of tests to check the implementation. This doesn't actually prove anything. Formal validation needs to explicitly go through all paths (as far as I know). Model-based ...
