the question is: does running code equal testing? if it means launching the code and to observe it runs and loads the page or initial screen, yes, it would be considered a test - a smoke test if you will. but there's more to testing than just a smoke test. as others have mentioned, you would do justice to the project by performing other types of test e.g. ...

TLDR; The specific terminology that probably describes what he is asking for is smoke testing. The long version: You are arguing with your manger instead of working towards a solution. Terminology is important, but so is communication and getting the job done. You haven't done unit or integration testing, you probably haven't done any performance or ...

Testing is validating a situation on a set of conditions. In your case you validate if it runs, you could say "I am going to test if it builds". This would mean you are actual testing something. From a SDLC perspective you are actual just coding and checking if you think it works and is good enough, this it not testing. Testing is actually a bit more ...

A test is an experiment. You have a hypothesis, which is normally governed by a specification, such as "When I enter a username and password that I know to be valid and click login, I am brought past the login screen and to the dashboard." or "When I log in to the program with 10,000 simultaneous users, performance is no less than 95% of that when there are ...

That is really up to your organization and your relationship with your stakeholders. In most cases, testing is just a label with no specific meaning. The ultimate goal is to deliver a high-quality product. "Testing" is just a label for a kind of activity that might help you reach that goal. You can define that label however you want, but it is your ...

Manual Testing is a large area, I'd break it down into: Unit testing Do basic functions achieve their purpose when used by the user? Integrated Testing Are related services and datastores updated and communicated with correctly? Performance Testing How long do responses take? How many users can be supported simultaneously (load) Exploratory Testing Does ...

Without testing, how would you know it works right? And if it does not have to work right, why would you spend resources on it? When it passed tests, it means is is "DONE" - and you need to agree what "DONE" means. Testing is the difference between Wally (from Dilbert cartoon) saying "it worked for me, my test file in my browser did not crashed" and saying ...

It is highly unlikely unless they have a bug bounty program or crowd sourced testing that you could participate in. Typically most companies, especially start ups, get defects reported on a rather regular basis from end-users for free.

When thinking of interface testing, u need to stop thinking of interface as GUI, but think as a point of interaction btwn objects. So when we say interface testing we mean are the objects able to interact without any problem. Remember it start with unit test, then component testing then integration testing that leads to system. Interface testing thus is part ...

You can use W3C's link checker for broken links: https://validator.w3.org/checklink And typosaurus for spell checking websites. This is also available as a Chrome extension, but I haven't used it myself so can't vouch for it: http://typosaur.us/ Both of these are free to use, but I believe typosaurus can only spell check English... hopefully that's ...

Cross browser testing can be done with BrowserStack & CrossbrowserTesting. Both allow a 30 day trial. They have numerous emulators for physical devices.

As of my reading- Red-Box Testing: It is nothing but a Protocol testing. User / Client can apply any techniques to accept the project. They will apply white box or grey box or black box for accepting the project. So we are calling the user acceptance testing as a red box testing. Yellow box Testing: Yellow box testing is checking against the warning ...

Exploratory testing What each person is doing sounds like exploratory testing. In other words folks in your company use their domain knowledge to test the front end. I do not believe there is a formal term for the multi-threaded aspect of testing that it covers. You could call it exploratory load testing or manual volume testing. The fact that you are ...

Testing usually falls to a tester/ test engineer, the designing and maintenance of test cases, writing necessary testing code and all the meta-work usually falls to a team lead such as an SQA engineer.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

## Answer 1 ## When talking about user testing in the UX circles, there’s formal user testing, and then there’s guerilla testing. Formal user testing is the subject of many research papers and studies, but there is relatively little guideline on how guerilla testing should be conducted. Although many UX purists frown on the practice, guerilla testing has ...

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 ...

Normally, though, developers are more focused with the functional and visual output of their changes, and spend far less time on the security ramifications. When they do focus on security, though, commonly the only things that come to mind are typical, like protecting against SQL injections or access control bugs, but a focus on security should cover far ...

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 ...
