If you're looking for a free performance testing solution capable of simulating 10 000 users the options are in: Grinder Tsung Apache JMeter Tsung is known for better support of multithreading so you'll need to have less machines to produce the load, however it is Linux-only and doesn't have a GUI. I believe that Open Source Load Testing Tools: Which ...

I tested credit provider gateways and implementations for years, so I can give a few suggestions: Security - no matter where you are in the world, there will be security requirements. Some common ones, depending on the gateway: Data transmitted to the gateway is sent over a secured channel (https or some other secure means) Data logged does not include ...

Jmeter is best option for load testing of any web application and database. 1- To simulate 10000 virtual users , if you want to use jmeter then you will have to use cloud system like http://blazemeter.com/. Because for this type of high load testing cloud system is only capable. 2 - About another tool , You are right those are very expensive. So I ...

You can get a free trial of our tool called StresStimulus, which includes unlimited number of virtual users and unlimited number of agent machines. StresStimulus is more lightweight than VS Ultimate and can emulate about 40% more users on the same hardware. Re: pricing, StresStimulus' weekly or a monthly licenses are substantially less costly than VS.

According to me you should keep concentrate on given requirement first. Then you can do other type of testing. As you are doing gateway testing then security testing is must. Also if you want to do more and more test cases to apply on those things then better you create automated test scripts with diff. types of all scenarios and run them so it will give ...

Not quite sure it's the best place for this (don't see many game QA questions here), but balance is all about the relationship between things. A simple way I've seen to manage stats is to just assign each stat a cost per unit. Then each fighter has the same budget. So then adjusting cost per unit on a given stat is a sort of lever or dial for you to balance ...

As you already have a pretty nice list of area's where improvements can be found I think the next step is to find the most important thing to improve. I would focus on getting a continuous improvement process going. Possible roads are to introduce recurring retrospectives to identify parts of the process that need improvement.

I would tend to agree with Kate that it depends. Personally I haven't seen a "standard or common term" in testing literature that only describes changes to new functionality or to existing functionality. The industry tends to give formal labels or terms to test techniques and approaches based on what we are trying to discover or measure. So a term like ...

It depends. For new features and changes to existing features, exactly how you label the testing that's done will depend on a number of factors, including: how much the feature or change affects other parts of the system whether the new build is a release candidate or not whether the feature or change is still in active development whether the ...

First of all you need to follow STLC if you want to test any software/Website properly with software testing standards.STLC is same for all. It does not matter what you are testing so STLC is base to start and complete testing with quality. Manual Testing - In most of application there are some areas which really need manual testing. So you need to find out ...

While many of these answers suggest doing direct DB querying, I'd advise against it besides read-only checks to verify things happened the way you expected them to. Direct creation, inserts, whatever, should be very extreme edge cases - no one should be writing such queries, and ideally there should be some API or DAO layer that the application and/or ...

For DB testing, you would want to test a scenario and see if they are populated in relevant tables with the right values. For this to be done, you should have strong SQL skills (to INSERT, UPDATE, CREATE, SELECT etc..) Next, get the DB environment ready, generally clean DB with just the test data values. Perform the test (say signup) Check in DB that the ...

Database can be tested various ways, If we are using SQL server then open the SQL query analyzer and write the queries to retrieve the data. Then verify whether the expected result is correct or not. IF not the data is not inserted into database. We can play with queries to insert, update and delete the data from the data base and check in the front end of ...

To me an Agile Tester is someone who does not work in a phase. The goal of the Agile framework is cohesion among the team. Everyone is involved in communication and tackle problems as they arise. Example the QA analyst finds a bug, notifies a dev member of the issue, if the bug is not verified as previously existing they work together to implement a ...

I'd suggest you start by taking a look at some of the related questions and their answers, particularly this one and this one. Also, if you don't have Crispin and Gregory's Agile Testing, get it. Some things that I've found helpful include: Test plans will still happen - but they tend to be much more lightweight and built as you test. Some tools support ...

Agile testing generally means the practice of testing software within the context of an agile workflow. When testing in an Agile way, there are few, if any, rigid adherence's to requirements documents and checklists. The goal, instead, is to simply do whatever is necessary at any moment to satisfy a customer’s requests, replacing documentation with ...

Is Exploratory Testing a core part of Agile Methodology? or it has no link with Agile process. Kindly explain in detail! Let's look at what each one of these things is and then see how they might go together. Exploratory testing is an approach to testing. You can use any test technique in an exploratory or scripted way but the important thing about ...

I think exploratory testing is one of the (agile) skills you can use in an Agile team to increase quality, but it is not an essential part of the Agile workflow. Though I think its slowly becoming a industry standard. Revised books like the Art of Agile and newer books Agile testing are giving it their own chapter. This clearly means its a technique worth ...

The problem may not be with your observation skills. It may be that you are expecting too much from them. Inattentional blindness (as described in this article by one of the original researchers - and yes, this is about the invisible gorilla experiment, if you've seen that famous video). The human brain can only absorb so much. That focus (ability to block ...

Let me give some advice I got from James Bach. He likes to make the distinction between a test plan and the test plan document. A test plan document is the written form of the test plan. This can vary quite a bit depending on the company you work for and in my experience can range from lean or minimal to bloated (I’ve seen so many bloated test plan ...

We have to work out everything in testing point of view. So that we cannot lose our observance.. for example if we use facebook, post status in different forms so that you can come to know how it works and not works. we can have a habit to view like this always.

In my experience, solely testing ETL isn't a viable career path. As Brent suggested, it would be a part of Business Intelligence but not normally something that can be done by itself. In answer to your other question, ETL development would be creating the functionality that enables the Extract - Transform - Load process to work, whereas ETL testing would be ...

In addition to the other responses: There is always a "specification" in the form of the software itself. Even if there are no user stories or other formal documents, there is a piece of software that does something. From that and the knowledge (however vague) of what the users of the software want it to do - the goal - it's possible to build a test ...

ETL basically stands for Extract Transform Load - which simply implies the process where you extract data from Source Tables, transform them in to the desired format based on certain rules and finally load them onto Target tables. There are numerous tools that help you with ETL process - Informatica, Control-M being a few notable ones. So ETL Testing ...

I've never heard of "reactive testing" so I'm not sure what exactly that means. Any idea? A blended strategy in the sense of using different test techniques and approaches can be a powerful idea but you (and your fellow testers) need to understand when to use them and when not to. Always make the strategic decision based on the context of your test project ...

In my view, this approach can be used only for less formal projects. Normally, test cases are required to exist to verify the functionality and to form a regression pack. This cannot be done without requirement-based strategy. With the suggested blended strategy, testers do not prepare test cases ahead and on most projects, you cannot afford to leave ...
