Almost any serious tool can be used effectively in a small team. However, learn and explore the tools are important; its secondary features can be crucial. Regarding GitHub issue tracking, it's important to not only register bugs and issues, but also use it completely: Address the issue to milestones (end of sprint, e.g.), correctly label, etc, etc. One ...

In non-technical English, "ad hoc" means "something done for a particular purpose, as and when necessary". The literal translation of the Latin phrase is "to this". http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/ad-hoc "Ad hoc testing" would be something done as a "one-off," for example devising tests to diagnose the cause of a particular problem, as ...

I'm going to agree with PaulDonny's first sentence. There is no standard tool for web services. All of the answers here give great examples of tools that work well. As much as I personally dislike SoapUI, I have seen testers use it very well for REST services. I'd like to present two additional options however. The first, which really only works well if ...

I once tested a Windows client UI by randomly banging on the keyboard while my coworker randomly moved and clicked the mouse. I found bugs that way, and I could reproduce them, but (at least initially) I couldn't tell you the exact set of keystrokes and mouse clicks that triggered the problem. That is monkey testing. Exploratory testing is testing ...

Because there are no requirements, I would say go with your first option. You are relying on normal expectations based on the button text. If the bug is rejected, you can ask why. Better yet though, find someone who should know (PM/BA/Customer or maybe even the dev) and find out what it's supposed to do. The more information you have, the better bug ...

For testing web services, try Runscope. You can test services on your local machine, on staging, as well as those running in the cloud -- all using the same test definition. For production monitoring/testing, you can set up schedules to run automatically. For CI, you can trigger tests to run against your service in any environment. There's a usage tier ...

Some time ago we had a tool installed on a server named testManager which has a simple GUI to switch branches on a server. If you can manage the project specific points of your tests (times for each branch and config files for several databases etc.) you can use this tool for testing different branches on a testserver. But as said you can only one branch at ...

Testcase format I like one of the following formats: Arrange Act Assert Given When Then These give a clear separation between test phases and steps. How is the test situation setup What is the action under test (try to keep action steps under 10, preferable less) What is verified Details How to write the step details of test-cases greatly depends ...

If the QA Lead will have responsibility for a number of test engineers, I would ask questions around coaching and how this person would ensure that the test engineers are doing a great job and are developing in their roles.

I read this one online and really liked it: 7) To what extent should developers do their own testing or do you believe testing is the responsibility of the QA team? from here Your first focus is on whether they have the technical skills to perform the job in general. Your second focus should be on whether they'd be a good fit at your specific ...

I have worked on .NET, JAVA, Wordpress, Sharepoint and PHP applications in different domains and found that for Blackbox testing there is no difference in the testing methods for Manual testing. Unless you are not bothered about the test environment, Once a build is successful, deployed and ready for testing, you are ready to execute your same test cases. ...

To help answer this question, you just need to focus on the difference between what a positive test case and a negative test case is. A positive test case confirms some expected functionality. E.g: A user with a valid username, and the corresponding password can log in successfully. A negative test case tests for unexpected or invalid conditions, and ...

The correct way for you to answer would be something like "I'm new to Agile, so I don't really know." If you have non-Agile experience, you could expand on your answer and talk about the number of test cycles on the projects you tested. And if you have read enough about Agile to feel confident that your reading applies to this particular context, then you ...

Testing in debug mode will only let you reliably test truly surface stuff, like UIs. There's so much extra stuff loaded "under the hood" - like stack frame protection - when running in debug, that you're end-stage-loading the testers finding nasty stuff like memory allocation and stack problems (depending on what language you're using). Any formal testing ...

Testern should not test in debug mode, but only devs should do this in their development tests. A good testing strategrie provides the following enviroments: Developement enviroment for development tests (with debugmode switchable by the devs for on/off Integration eviroment for the QA to test the software under real conditions - this especially means ...

My favorite is this one: I'll give you a software to test next Monday. You will have to finish test activities to release it on Friday I'll ask you next Wednesday how is your progress. How would you manage to give me appropriate information? I expect the person plan the activities with a test inventory, defines a coverage and provide metrics, a ...

Do we have to test on emulators or a real devices for testing mobile applications? I agree with "Joe Strazzere on this point, that one should go for both Emulators and Device testing as per the process and that too first test on Emulators and then on actual devices. But I would like to add few more relevant points to the answer. Whether you should go ...

If you need a reason on why you need to test using devices as well as emulators you need to look no further than this article: http://www.fastcodesign.com/1669877/infographic-heres-why-designing-android-apps-is-so-hard Designing interfaces for 11000+ screen sizes is too much. Trying to shortlist that into a couple dozen is still more phones than most ...

Short answer is: Real Devices. But the point is if you can afford it. As it could be relative expensive if you want to test multiple devices. So: If you only have limited budget/resources, then use real devices for Android and simulator for iPhone (since iOS simulator is proved to be stable and trustable well). If you don't have any budget, go with ...

In Microsoft Test Manager, in the Testing Center view, select Test, then Analyze Test Runs. You'll get the test run history for all runs of your current test plan.

Do we have to test on emulators or a real devices for testing mobile applications? Why not both? Some functionality of mobile applications can be well-tested on emulators. Often this mean UI, basic features, etc. Other features may require real devices, particularly if you have device-specific functionality, or functionality that takes advantage of ...


1

It's your choice actually. You can choose to only test your applications on emulators and not real devices- but that would be choosing a dangerous path. We want our testing to closely resemble the real world scenario as much as possible. So testing should be done, as much as possible on real devices. Because real devices would provide your the real world ...

You want to test the web service manually, and unfortunately it is only possible with some interface. Web services are not visible and only applications can communicate with this. So my suggestion is test the Applications that are using the web services. Doing so you will be indirectly test the web services.

In addition to already mentioned suggestions: First understand what you are testing, think as an end user. Understand the environment where your product is deployed or hosted. This will help you in checking system beyond the regular functional testing like: if the latest release is not creating too much logs thus filling up memory and the decreasing ...

As already mentioned here, there are lot of open source tools like SOAP UI etc.. and plugins like POSTMAN, RESTCLIENT etc... which can be used to send GET/POST request and check response. Other than these, if you are comfortable using java, you can write a simple code using httpclient library to send GET/POST request and validate the response. At the same ...

For the REST service testing Postman and HttpMaster are good tools. It supports dynamic parameters, validation of response data, various data viewers, etc. If you are looking for performing load testing of the REST services than Grinder and JMeter open source tools can be considered. This data is taken from the post Tools for REST webservice testing


1

I would suggest using an open source tool such as http://www.soapui.org/ This will allow you to send requests to your end points and, in turn, see the responses. Should you choose to extend your test from manual into automated (ie run the same test again along with other tests) then SoapUI also gives you that option.

You are demonstrating the need to learn. Very good indeed! Here are some advises: Correct language usage. If you want to come across well and communicate effectively you need to take the time for this. Read up on methodology. Know your terms and apply them correctly. Avoid common pitfalls. Apply you mind. Look up existing test cases of good quality. Make ...

Smoke Testing : After a new build, Smoke testing an application means checking that the critical functions of the application still work. Smoke testing is done to reject any badly broken software. The main idea behind this test is that if the primary application functionality is not working, then there is no point carrying on further testing. For example, ...

For users, it is preferable that first few columns are in the sort order. Another good heuristics is to group short fields and related fields, and put important/required fields to left, and optional/unimportant fields to the right.

One question: What is your office space like? Distractions often are ubiquitous. You can only try to circumvent. Headphones is one option, changing work hours is another. Changing your expectations is a third. So what you need to do is: Find out average/acceptable performance. You may not have a problem at all. Detect production breaking habits, ...

You might consider using a mind map instead of a traditional test plan. It will provide you a document artifact and be lighter weight since your project is medium sized. People can still collaborate on it if need be by adding / updating nodes. xmind or freemind are pretty popular choices.

Considering your focus on atomic page operations, I would add some basic operations on popups, like ClosePopup, AcceptPopup, CancelPopup. Perhaps depending on the technology you should add some extra functions.

Possible issues with using spreadsheets are that: you are dependent on an external company for software for access to your historic tickets. the only workflows are manual - no enforcement you will eventually run out of space or the sheet will get too big to handle difficult to add attachments such as screenshots of the problem, etc. I would suggest ...

I ask a question like this to my interviewees. There is no right answer. The question is an exercise in problem solving and how you would tackle it. Like tickets you will be assigned, the requirements are vague and it is up to you to get clarification by asking the right questions. What should be the testing approach of 100 Television Products?

As Niels van Reijmersdal already pointed out anybody can be Scrum Master as long as there is no conflict of interest. But personally I wouldn't do a certification for Scrum Master - if I want to be a tester and scrum master. Better invest the time and money in certified (agile) tester course IMHO. Here you can also find a scrum guide - quite short though. ...

Anybody can be the Scrum Master, just make sure the Scrum Master has no other conflict of interest roles as Product Owner, Manager or Stakeholder. Personally I think testers have the potential to be great Scrum Masters, because: Testers discover problems/defects, but often do not demand a certain solution. Its up-to the owners of the issue to find the ...
