Things are expected to slip through if you are just given a once through correct? Im not talking about a lot of major stuff. But little things (especially if it's a large website). How do I not beat myself up over this? Yes. There are innumerable levels of quality and bugs will slip through at each of them. Consider these levels: Is it possible to ...

What is Guerrilla Testing : it is a way to get some quick user feedback on your product or prototype. I can say its usability testing. Guerrilla Testing Covers : it covers an activity by which you need to conduct it where your audience are novice users and observe these - Can they find the content? Is the language relevant to them? Have they understood ...

Been in that situation, and far more than I'd like. While we'd like customers to provide complete and iron-clad requirements, it never (and I do mean never) happens. Well, unless you're shooting people into space. I hear they do a pretty thorough job. For the rest of us, it's generally a continuum. The bits of this you don't have as far as requirements ...

Most of the time while performing interruption testing one would need to block the requests between backend and frontend On mobile this can be performed with tools like burp suite which allows us to interrupt the requests made from mobile application.

What you are asking for is a fault injection. Unfortunatelly, you are not enough specific in what kind of error you want to reach and there is a lot of different states from bad blocks causing read-write errors to no rights or disconnected devices during the process, etc. This answer on another project will make you happy under Linux: ...

This is a simple, if uncomfortable, situation to be in. Unfortunately, it does happen from time to time and you need to be ready for it. The fact that the defect has been found close to the deadline is, in the short term, irrelevant. Your team has found a high severity defect, so you report it. Given the short timescales, you ensure that everyone who ...

Deciding to release with severe bug (and escalate next release with a fix) or postpone release is business decision. QA cannot "assure" quality. QA can "assist" business side with information about quality and process. Business decides what is best allocation of resources: more development, or more testing, or more management and control. In situation like ...

As of my reading- Guerrilla Testing means going into a coffee shop or another public place to ask people there about your product or prototype. It can be conducted anywhere ex- cafe, library, train station etc, essentially anywhere where there is significant footfall. Guerrilla testing works well to quickly validate how effective a design is on its intended ...

Personally, I wouldn't worry about that distinction. I'm not sure what extra value lies in breaking out the failure rate by severity. Instead, I would just report the failure rate as 30% in your sample data Breaking out severity when reporting on the defects might provide useful information, especially if your exit criteria puts limits on defects by ...

If you have access to the DLLs you can use Reflector. Unless you are accessing the server internally you would not typically have access to the DLLs. If you are doing an internal security audit (Someone who has access to your network) than they would quite possibly have access to the DLLs. This could lead to a scenario where they could decompile the code. ...

Penetration testing (also called pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or Web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. Finding these vulnerabilities gives the opportunity to correct and prevent potential future occurrences. Testers should consider security testing as part of their role. The amount of ...

If you haven't been given requirements then it makes testing really difficult. You'll also be glad to hear that exhaustive testing is impossible (see The Principles of Software Testing) In terms of design requirements, you're allowed to ask the product designer or business analyst for feedback/confirmation as you go because requirements often change - ...

If your requierements say "When copying an URL from address bar there must be http:// in the link" then it's a bug. If your requierements say "When copying an URL from address bar there must not be http:// in the link" then it's not a bug. If your requierements say nothing about http:// in the copied link, then why do you test it?

You should test: Switching between being online and offline to see if the transitions causes issues. Switching between wireless and wired to see if any issues arise. Intermittent availability - internet is available, then isn't then is. How does the application perform? Can syncing be initiated manually? What if the user is offline when syncing is ...

The answer is really very simple: If your application is a desktop application, unplug your network cable and test as usual. If your application is a mobile application, turn off wireless internet and phone data, then test as usual. If your application is a web application, unplug your network cable and test as usual. You should already know what ...

There is no magical answer for this. Your options include: Hide the bug and hope that the customer does not find it before you can deliver a fix. Delay the delivery until the bug is fixed. Talk to the customer about the bug and let them decide how they want to proceed. The choice depends on your circumstances, and no one here knows those as well as you ...
