Browser development tools can also provide a way to emulate mobile devices. This will give you a good idea of how the environment will display and function with your site. With that ...

From my experience, exploratory testing is good to do to understand the application very well. But it does not guarantee the full test pass as we won't track of the test results here. Have a functional testing to cover the high priority scenarios then go to Exploratory testing. High level planning is better than zero planning.


0

Yes we too do exploratory it's very important to perform due to which we encounter the issues, which may occur while a new user is using the application. Definitely it is performed in the last phase but it's not ignored at all.

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.

One of the options is as you have already tried - browserstack. Then you can install android SDK on your machine. It provides an emulator for various screen sizes and android os. For iOS you can try the xcode. I haven't used it personally but it is somewhat like the android sdk but for iOS. You will need Mac OS and iTunes store to install it. BUT No ...

A very basic explanation Website is just a web page where most of the time testing will be of broken links and broken images and more if SEO is being processed on/for that website Web application is a application where there has to be more work from the testing point of view for example applying various types of testing

I would say the website is what the user sees and can interact with in the browser. The web application is the thing that handles those interactions and tells the browser what to display. The user doesn't interact with the application directly, only with the website.

Without talking to you directly I don't know what exactly what you mean when you say "exploratory testing". When I say exploratory testing I mean: an approach to software testing that can be described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution. Exploratory testing is contrasted with scripted testing but they are both part of the same ...

There are a few possibilities, and the most suitable depends mostly on Does the test designer know for sure he will also test the case Are there some sort of criterias existing stating what is the correct output So if it is possible that someone else is going to test the case, a bit more effort should be given to describe the desired test. On this case ...

The difference is in an individual's perception. It all depends on what you think. Many would say that Facebook is a web application, whereas others would say it is a website. For example services like the ATM software, payment gateway, email service can all be thought of a web application. But if you really get into the depth you will see that they have ...

A few ideas come to mind: If this is a webapp, the data may be passed as JSON to a javascript library, so you could verify the data in addition to the visual output. If it's using a well known graph/chart library, this may be sufficient, otherwise you're going to be testing the library and not your application. Obviously, still spot-check the graphs, but ...

what is the difference between the Website and Web application? From a QA point of view, there is no difference. Some application development tools/environments have these as different choices, depending on the tasks involved in the project (see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd547590(v=vs.110).aspx)

The test process you are looking for is called inspection. It is primarily a manual process. For a given set of data, the result must be displayed in a certain format and needs to be compared to an exemplar. How you produce the exemplar is up to you. I might suggest that a hand-drawn representation of the display output is sufficient early on, while you ...

You can mention the following additional points in the expected results for your visual output of tests run: The kind of variances that this visual output (graphs, charts, signal waveform) can have for the variations in your steps,test data,conditions, etc. The visual output must be in appropriate orientation & scale. The visual output is transferable ...

Well, in my experience, choosing 1 'type' of testing should never be considered thorough testing. You should always ensure that you have a formalized testing (which ad hoc would not fall under) to ensure that you have full test coverage. This will typically be executed along side some ad hoc testing in order to discover defects quicker. For example, with a ...

From my personal point of you, I expect the testers have in mind to deliver a service. The aim is to support development to improve the quality of their work. Now, technical skills are for me the way to make testing more efficient: - Technical skills will help for test automation. While tests are running testers are busy to increase the test scope. - Thanks ...

Generally Testing type can't live independently of model, because its the type of software model which delivers the product to testing team in some format may be whole product or some module or first few independent module and then integrated modules as a complete product. Therefore you need to adopt the testing type based on the delivery of the product. ...

How many testing types are there according to you? What exactly do you mean when you say adhoc testing? Is it that you randomly click some element of the screen and see what happens? Or you randomly choose a module and test it? You can do any type of testing in any development model as long as it suit the context. You see testing is always context ...

It's great that you are searching for help here. When I first started off in testing, I didn't have the slightest clue where to look for help, so my first couple projects were a needless struggle. I would get familiar with the school of context driven testing. People like Scott Barber, James Bach, Cem kaner, Keith Klain have lots of content that they've ...

So, for full disclosure, I work for SmartBear Software and have used our product QAComplete, along with a few others (some mentioned above). Like some have said above, it all depends on what you're doing and your budget as to what tool will work best for you. I can speak for QAComplete and tell you that the biggest selling point for it is that its ...

In order to test websites I think its important that you have a basic level understanding of the technology. Follow the free courses HTML & CSS and JavaScript on codecademy.com. Reading a book on the testing topic might also be a great idea, see this list of good testing books. To get more experience in testing websites you can sign up at uTest.com. ...

first of all you have to read these two books: Patton Ron - Software Testing, 2nd Edition; Cem Kaner - Testing Computer Software, 2nd Edition. do not pay attention that they are old, these books cover theory and practice of software testing and also SDLC. After that, you will have a strong basis for testing. If you have more questions, feel free to ask ...

As the very first step I would recommend exploring basic functionality of the tools. Luckily both Selenium and JMeter provide record-and-replay functionality so to start: Selenium IDE - Firefox Plugin which is able to record test flaw and generate relevant code. Preferred language is Java as both tools are Java-based and you'll be able to integrate it into ...

One of the first, and most important, questions that I would ask the interviewer is what level of testing the project/organisation has specified on the specific project that the interview is for and/or in general. If the project is a purely commercial utility then they will require quite a different approach to one that is safety critical and highly ...

I am in no way trying to be rude, but I think the hiring team may be setting themselves up for failure. Having worked on many many automation projects and worked with many people of varying skill levels, it is actually just about impossible for someone with no automation background to jump in to automation and get it right the first time. With no guidance ...


1

The right way to go about it would be to prepare not just for the interview but for the job itself. Do you have hands on experience in programming? Try learning java. Both, selenium and jmeter work on java. So learn the concepts. Once you learn java, google tutorials for selenium and java. Learn from them. Ask help from the testing community for one on one ...

I am working since several in testing. A foundation certification is all the time a bonus. Anyway it will not make you an expert. It allows you to have a basic understanding about testing, what is the aim and what we expect. The basic certification will show you the good practice. You will learn some stuffs that you can make you more efficient in your work. ...

I recommend you TestLink. It is opensource, very easy to use and complete. You can link it to integration server as Jenkins. For me it is the most efficient opensource tool. http://testlink.org/ From what i remember, you have a free plugin in Jira for test management. Unfortunately, it is not so user friendly the display is bad. It is a bit complex to use ...

Of the tools you mentioned I have experience about Testrail. Pros: Straightforward approach. Quick to start to use. Stores test cases well. Cons: Less features to pick relevant test cases to re-run, no issue management. ( We wanted integrated issue management as it makes easier to see where the issues are regarding test cases and to pick test casea to be ...

What kind of certification are you talking about? You wrote something about foundation certification, I'm assuming it to be ISTQB. Well I have one of those and it didn't help me in any way. I didn't learn anything that I didn't already know before it. I didn't get promoted. My pay scale is still the same. If you are looking to widen your skill set, then ...

Why not Testlink? Pros: Every needed function present Possible to add additional fields Possible to manage test-cases related to different projects, test-plans Possible to manage different versions of test-cases Possible to assign test-cases to tester for execution Possible to connect to bug-tracking tools (e.g. mantis, JIRA) Possible to connect to ...

The best way to do this is practice functional testing and master the art. Once you do that you won't need to find back door answers to such stuff. Never try to pose yourself in an interview that you are not, because sooner or later you will get caught and that will affect your job. Learn the art and practice it so well that any question thrown at you on the ...

Often in interviews, I'm asked "how would you test x, y, z?" and while I didn't plan it, I found myself giving a pretty stock answer each time. I'll start off saying something like this: "It depends - on the features, the requirements, the timeline, and any other relevant factors." And then I'll start laying out specific examples. A web page that changes ...

First, it depends on the way the organization defines things - what a particular business considers direct and indirect scenarios could well be different than what you'd expect. If I was responding to this question in an interview, I'd start by saying that in my experience direct scenarios are those where the test explicitly exercises the requirement or ...

Many open source projects are actively looking for help with their projects, one aspect wanting help is for bug fixing. Rather that looking for examples for practice you could find a real project in an application that interests you and help them to fix real bugs.

Fastest way to check if all cells have a value between 1 and 6 is to use the COUNTIF function. Put it somewhere in your sheet, update the range and verify it returns 0. =COUNTIF(A1:Z1000,">6") =COUNTIF(A1:Z1000,"<1") Now if the result is higher than 0, use the coloring technic in the answer of Milinpatel17 to find the cells that are off.

As far as I know jmeter doesn't work in a sequential order. What jmeter does is, it takes all the requests and send them to the server/host all at the same time. So if you have configured it for 3 users making 1 http(s) request, that is 3*1 http(s) requests will be sent to the server/host all simultaneously and then it will wait for the response!
