Software testing methodologies
Even being in the IT industry, I'm still a lay man when it comes to software testing. Can any body help me to understand how a software is tested? For convenience, I'll put a few questions
What do you mean by testing strategy?
What are various methods of testing? Which is the best one?
What is defect management?
What are test phases? How are they segregated and classified?
What is a test metrics?
Guys, I know there are many intelligent engineers who would want to answer all the queries in one go. But please be easy on your replies as my brain is working li'l bit on a slower side these days.
Go on !!
We'll soon have one of our own CEans to talk about Software Quality Engineering (Software Testing). Its an amazing discovery that lot of engineers do not know what it is about and what does it take to enter the field of software quality engineering.
But we will have to wait for some time to actually have it published on CE. Let us make it available on CE - Downloads section also. 😀
-The Big K-
I think lets start with a small study of software testing. We may later have white papers about various other interesting topics.
CEans, any takers for this idea? QA guys, how soon can I have my answers?
I am wondering about the same. Someone please reply!!mayurpathakStill no replies?
This is very surprising. Do I infer that there aren't much peole around who have a hands on experience in QA or there are no takers for this topic?
Some one please prove me wrong.
for the first question according to me
1: The Test strategy [FONT=GE Inspira, Arial, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, sans-serif]is to define the specific approach to testing, methodology, requirements and deliverables of the project across the appropriate phases for the project. what types of risk are included in that,the time and resources required to follow the approach.and need to cover the requirements with the proper coverage including postive and negative flows.[/FONT][/FONT]
Can explain more if anyone needs to understand if not clear.
Some of soft ware testing methods are:
White box testing Black box testing
Gray box testing
Software testing Methodologies
Test methodologies are hypothesis of the order in which a particular organisation wishes to test a given project.
In the field of Software testing we use different types of Software Testing Methodologies.
Here are the few commonly used Software Development Life Cycle used in actual testing:
