You can use following tools as per your given requirements: 1 - Selenium IDE , Selenium web driver - For functionality testing. 2 - Jmeter - For Load / Stress testing Using selenium web driver you can create script as you mentioned like create file , folder , rename , modify and a lot ,ore. Jmeter will help you to measure capacity of your system/site. ...

It's not the most elegant solution, but you can use different test settings for each configuration. We have a number of different test servers that our tests run against, and for each server we have a test setting. In the test setting you can go to "Advanced" and "Deployment" and add your config file. We're actually just using the file name to determine ...

I would recommend you to move your Selenium version and drivers for your other browsers (IE,Chrome) to the latest version. So far 2.44. Verify Selenium and drivers from browsers are same version and also check according to your US (32 bits, 64 bits)

I have till date only worked with Web Applications and there is this idea/method I use which I think can be generalized: At some point during the testing I envision myself as a little kid. Kids are impatient, greedy and want everything all at once(this is not a judgement. I have a wonderful little nephew whom I love to pieces). I try to do the same. I go ...

you can pass the driver as argument to the methods , so no need to re create them.

GMail has official JAVA API. Here is your bag: https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/quickstart/quickstart-java

I just replaced our Gmail-based tests with a tool called Inbucket (http://www.inbucket.org/) and just query its REST API to check the email contents. It works pretty well so far. If you use c#, it's pretty simple to create a small class to query the API using RestSharp.

Christina This question comes up from time to time. You may find the answers given in this post of tremendous help. What are key properties of a great QA team member? It will be hard for anyone to suggest programs to you unless we know more of your testing environment. Although it may change in the future, we use no automation on our testing team. If I ...

Ok, I found documentation for Appium that shows how to automate Chrome. Here is the link to the documentation. And here are the desired capabilities to send when you're starting the session: DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities(); capabilities.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.PLATFORM_NAME, "Android"); ...

I think that the answer is "Yes", load test should have checks for response validity. I.e. if you send bad username/password pair it is expected to get 401 or 403 HTTP response and JMeter shouldn't consider it as sampler failure. If response code is 200 but the response body doesn't contain "bla-bla" although shouldn't it also should indicate test failure. ...

I would say that some validation is almost always needed. For example I have tested website where if the login failed then all subsequent requests get a 200-OK response, but every response body requests a username and password. Adding a simple verification that the response to the login contains "login successful" or something equivalent detects the login ...

A few tips: It sounds like you have the credentials of all your 20'648 customers available in plain text. If you do I'd like to know the name of the company so I never ever do business with them. If you have a sensible login system the password is hashed and salted, so you cannot test an arbitrary user login without an absolutely giant amount of computing ...

The simplest answer is if your customer is telling you to do this, you do it. If you don't provide what your customer wants, you run the risk of them telling you after you've developed the test that the results aren't valid because you've ignored their instructions. I've seen this happen: a very simple load test had to incorporate a lot of business logic ...

I have experienced the same thing. I believe that for some reason it stops executing Java scripts on the page once the focus to the browser is lost. My quick workaround was to create a Linux VM on my Mac, and do all the testing (and development) in it, because then the browser is always in focus, even when you do other stuff in the host OS.

When you are starting out as a beginner in QTP, may be the best way to learn is to dive right in and explore. First start off by learning about how object spy and object repository works in QTP. Then create an object repository and add different kind of objects like a JavaTextField, JavaTable, JavaTree, JavaStaticText, JavaButton. Now drag drop these ...

What do you need to be a great QA Analyst? There is a lot of answers to this portion of the question. The main things I think would be: Know yourself Know your limitations and strengths. I am weak with UIs so whenever I am tasked with a piece that uses UIs, I typically will ask for assistance and get a 2nd party to verify that I did not miss ...

I think there is problem of latency. So I will suggest you to try slowing your test scripts after first test run. Give enough time to the browser to logout completely and then read inputs for second test and then you pass them into the test scripts. The only thing here is you have to pass values only then when browser have successfully loaded the login page ...

The main motive of the QA person should be "How to break into the system". This statement keeps on driving me and helps in delivering the application as per requirement specifications.

The one thing I think it's necessary to know: The essence of the job is to provide decision makers with accurate, relevant, timely information about the system, to help them make better decisions. Of course, you will also need to learn zillions of strategies and techniques for providing that information. But the key is to remember the point of what you do: ...

One very helpful trait would be ability ("knack") to search available information and being able to find what you need. If you did simple search in QA (I used search string "how to start qa") you would find many answers, like: How to become a good QA employee How can I transition into getting into QA? What does a Sofware QA Person Need to Know to Perform ...

I've done it and basically I find these sorts of interviews come down to two main points. How well do you understand Test Plans, Strategies and documentation? Can you break down a project so that it communicates what you intend to do in a document that is handed to either someone outside your group or someone unfamiliar with your task. Can you communicate ...

I think that you can use Apache JMeter as a tool and it's Assertions like Response Assertion HTML Assertion XPath Assertion do to your checks. JMeter is a protocol-based tool so it'll be able to deal with your use case much faster than Selenium does, besides you'll be able to run your tests in multithreaded manner, using command-line headless mode, ...

Any time someone considers a career change it can be difficult and stressful as you go from an area of comfort to an area of relative unknowns. The difficult thing with learning about testing is there are so many people out there with misconceptions about what we do that it can be hard for someone new to get and stay on the "right path". I'd suggest finding ...

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.

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 ...
