(more or less) Quoted: QA stands for Quality Assurance. Probably the QA server is suitable for testing, measuring the quality of the software/hardware. Probably unit tests/regression tests are meant to run on this server. The what-you-call staging/pre-production server, is a system running the production code used for regular usage of the software/...

One of the possible solutions: Generate a random object that has all the states different each time Use that object to fill the page Use that object to check the response. There should be some asserts that understand that "if this is filled, then the response needs to have this" Running this test multiple times would cover many of the scenarios. But you ...

Excellent answer by Randy, but I'd like to go further : there can be several levels of testing machines, and each one goes further from the development, and looks like more the production machine. I've seen up to 4 levels, with unit tests(someone, usually the developper itself, tests the isolated components, usually directly on the development machine) ...

You did not specify a client operating system, but here is an idea for Linux. Using cgroups, you can constrain how much CPU a process (or group of processes) can use. Here is the idea. Cgroups (short for Control Groups) is a Linux facility for constraining the resources used by a process or group of processes. You create a cgroup from the command line, ...

If you write this same question on Google You will get a long list of tools, applications and browser addons for running a spelling and grammar check and a link test for websites. Personal what I do is copy the content of web page and paste it in a Word Processor like MS Word or Libre Office Word and run the spelling and grammar check in it for find the ...

In addition to the other excellent responses, the type of manual testing you do on a QA server will differ. Where I work, the environments are set up this way: Local systems - this is where the devs build and do their initial unit testing. A number of service-based calls won't work in the local environment, and they are typically sharing the dev server's ...

You should make more clear what you want to know because you mixed two things up. Let me give you some hints. On the one hand you want to know, how to do functional testing, especially black-box testing, to crash a (web) application. To achieve that you should perform negative tests. In your case, if you want to manipulate input fields, forms etc. you ...

If you are doing Automated testing I would suggest TestNG as mentioned previously along with ExtentReport ExtentReport is used to create a report based on the results from your TestNG tests. Example - http://relevantcodes.com/Tools/ExtentReports2/ExtentJava.html You can use it as either a Logger or Listener Logger The logger function is where you add a ...
