 Software testing itself is a vast area to be classified. Primarily, testing can be performed in two ways; either manually or automated testing. It is very crucial to decide when to choose manual or automation testing during software development to ensure quality meeting project constraints. Hence, latest deployment methods are required to provide well-functioning software in production as frequent as possible. This is where Continuous Integration and continuous deployment comes into use.

What is CI/CD?

It means continual integration of the code to the relevant branch of working project. It implies that "integration tests" are run at every code change while Continuous Delivery means that every change that passes tests are automatically deployed.

Verification vs. Testing

The test strategies created in a CI-environment where focus is on automation, mostly guarantees checking or verification and negligible testing (as in exploration). Hence, testers could not find something out of the box. Good testing includes both.

Top 6 Technological trends in software testing in 2018

March 20 2018, 06:26am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

automation software testing

The software testing community has come through many interesting trends through the year 2017. These trends mainly include the newly introduced practices in software testing. Trends like adopting newer test automation tools & practices and DevOps are found to be usually followed, which in turn has resulted to increase in automation being performed on various web applications. While some tools are still facing issues like managing the environments as well as test data, shortened release schedules and lack of time for proper testing.

  1. Working together with manual & automation tools: It’s true that automating every single thing sounds like interesting and easy for everyone for once, but, in reality automation makes it difficult to face challenges in complex test environments and data and ever shortening delivery cycles.
  2. Emerging mobile test automation: As compared to earlier years, we can clearly see a shift of software world towards Mobile applications, away from web and desktop applications. The same can be said as the reason for the introduction of Test Automation in mobile applications testing in order to shorten time-to-market needs of software organizations.

Posted by Claire Mackerras

performance testing tools

As code changes from a team that constantly integrates the original structures and bug fixes can have a huge impact on how an application appears to be and functions on different devices and browsers and this can quickly affect that application load around the machines. And this is where performance testing becomes crucial to a well-rounded QA strategy.

Let’s take a look at some of the performance testing tools:

  1. Apache JMeter

Apache JMeter is an open source load testing tool. It is a mainly a performance testing tool and can be integrated with the test plan.

2. HP LoadRunner

This is an HP product and can be used as a performance testing tool. This HP product can be purchased from its HP software division. Besides, it is very much useful in understanding and ascertaining the performance and outcome of the system when there is an actual load.
