Full disclosure: I work for Rainforest QA. Because of the nature of our platform we have a strict but relatively simple technique for test writing to ensure that our customers get reliable and consistent results. That said, our approach to test writing works well for manual testing even if you don't use the Rainforest platform. The key points of our test ...

Cross browser testing can be done with BrowserStack & CrossbrowserTesting. Both allow a 30 day trial. They have numerous emulators for physical devices. Chrome allows Toggle Device mode (Ctrl+Shift+M) Edge has Emulation Mode which can be navigated via inspect element. I believe BrowserStack covers most of the devices and their versions, so we can ...

I assume you consider a technique to be proven if it has been shown to find bugs. I also assume you are interested in messaging in the backend system sense, not in the instant messaging sense. A network partition test is a test in which network connections between nodes in a distributed system are temporarily severed. Aphyr has a series of blog posts ...

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 ...

Depending on what you are trying to achieve you might do both. Test cases are usually in an appendix because they change. Once a MTP is baselined it can be a chore to change it (thank you government). Take a look at ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-3:2013. Click the preview button to see what a test plan table of contents should look like. You can also google master ...

This isn't how I approach testing but I suppose you could try it like this. Based on the diagram it seems very top down and doesn't represent how you might actually approach testing. In practice I do something like this: Terminology: Test Plan - contains the logistical information (delivery dates, who is on the team, etc etc) and the Test Strategy. This ...

I stumbled upon some black box techniques, but I don't really get how it works. I found sources saying that black box techniques are techniques in which you input something in a program and check if the output matches with the wanted result, if it doesn't, there's an error somewhere. Let's help with the terminology first: Black Box Testing typically ...

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? I always say that I can test anything in any amount of time. When I'm given more time, I can do better. But I can still do good ...

Q1. 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? A1. Accept that you can not be perfect. Make sure you have an outlet to note and record the bugs that you do find so they ...

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 ...

Note before I dive in: We do Scrum so depending on the project methodology your company uses, this may or may not be useful for you. Background: We have our initial requirements from the stakeholders. The stakeholders are a combination of our clients, subject matter experts, product owners, executives, and managers. We are provided what they expect the ...

1) Remember 100% testing is not possible, it is basic testing principle and everyone know that. so dont feel beat yourself too hard. 2) GUI bugs are important to the client so you should have concentrate on those, as they will be the 1st to be noticed. But px bugs can be done throug chrome F12 and checked. Also a note: take your time, a QA should be ...

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 ...

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 - ...

In general MongoDB fares well with a substitute database as there is no schema to reproduce on it. I tend to exercise the database in two categories of tests: integration tests for the classes wrapping database usage, such as Data Access Objects or Repositories. I use the test database of the local machine, create as many collections objects as necessary ...

In black box test a tester should know the expected output depending on input. A tester shouldn't know how the program under test achieves this result (a tester may know it of course but it's not necessary). That is why it's called "black box" - you do not see what going on inside the box (program). Quotation from your linked source: Black box testing ...

For an ERP system, scenarios differ from other test phases in their length and depth. For example, a functional unit test of a sales order might go into depth to check every facet of a single order - the sales partner (sold to / ship to / bill to), the material and material type, shipping point, pricing conditions, incoterms, freight charges, etc. ...

Yes and you're definitely ahead of the crowd already with the plan you've laid out. Additional considerations: In addition to using a Page Object Model, consider a central place for hard coded values (simple methods that return a string in some cases). So the identifiers for the css locator for last_name are in one place (along with other css element ...

To start with I would want to know if the functional requirements outline some type of data that state the function is working as documented. I would then use a test case template that used the information above and then break down the expected results for each role. it would also be good to organize your test cases to be directly related to the ...
