Software testing involves evaluating and verifying a software product’s functionality. Basically, it checks whether the software product matches anticipated requirements and makes sure it is defect-free. It can be said that testing enhances the quality of the product by preventing bugs, reducing development costs, and reducing performance issues.
There are three methods of software testing and they are as follows:
A test case is nothing but a set of conditions or variables under which a tester will determine whether a system under test satisfies requirements or works correctly.
Benefits of Automation testing are:
White box testing technique involves selection of test cases based on an analysis of the internal structure (Code coverage, branches coverage, paths coverage, condition coverage, etc.) of a component or system. It is also known as Code-Based testing or Structural testing. Different types of white box testing are
Verification is a process of evaluating software at the development phase. It helps you to decide whether the product of a given application satisfies the specified requirements. Validation is the process of evaluating software at the after the development process and to check whether it meets the customer requirements.
Test Deliverables are a set of documents, tools and other components that have to be developed and maintained in support of testing.
There are different test deliverables at every phase of the software development lifecycle
A test log is a chronological record of relevant details about the execution of test cases. It provides detailed information about the success of each test performed to validate the quality, performance, and functionality of the software.
Random testing is a black-box software testing technique where programs are tested by generating random and independent inputs. The results of the output are compared with the software specifications to check whether the test output is pass or fail. Random testing is also used to avoid biased testing.
The success of Automation testing can be measured using the following criteria:
