The testers should catch the bugs in software that they’re testing. Testers should try to catch as several vital bugs as soon as possible. Catching the crucial bug earlier on Product-Life-Cycle can save the Projects from financial losses & mitigate the risks as compared for catching the same at a later stage in SDLC.

Steps to hunt the bugs:
Sometimes it’s useful to break the rules:
The following test cases, which were predefined a tester can miss the bugs so it makes it impossible’s to provide the product i.e. 100 percent bug free. If you-follow pre-determined test cases you risks becoming blind to outside the bugs. A first secret is to check the functionality under the test. It’ll be an effective channel to discover the more bugs, because functionality is not generally covered by the test cases.

Examine the patterns:
You might have noticed that the bugs can be often met in the groups, one can call them-gregarious. The testing a new but the similar functionality you should turn to the previous testing ideas or decisions. It is also a better advice to note the test ideas that’ve already helped you in the bugs fixing.

Bring the bug to its knees:
Don’t be in a hurry for log the bug you’ve found in your bug-report. It can be just the start. Bug indicates software loose the link. Feeding the huge number of insane-inputs, firing up the data of inputs, reducing the system resources you can soon the witness presence of another earlier bug.

Listen for the footsteps of approaching the bug:
This enables to hear the several background-sounds. It helps in couple of fronts. In such path you’ll be able to hear the warning messages, error-boxes and etc. which can’t appear at your screen for few reasons but be witnesses of the bug’s presence.

Two heads’re better than one:

By a tester is required to be full of ideas’, nevertheless there can be the cases when a tester has no one for un-cover bugs. It’s time for ask your colleagues to help. Testing-together at same time and it helps generate the new testing ideas. The other plus of the pair testing is that you work more intently having a feeling of being watched. But the collaboration which lasts to a long time can lead for tunnel vision.

Test automation:

In software testing, test-automation is use of the special software to handle the execution of the tests & the comparison of real outcomes with the predicted outputs. Test automation can automates the few repetitive but the necessary task’s in the formalized the testing activity already in area, & add the additional-testing that would be difficult to perform the manually.

Tips for functional Testing Automation:
Exploit Discrete Locators Instead Of Indexes
Generally it’s desirable to make a test you’ve to do somewhat like this click on seventh element in list. For such-elements it’s worth the intentions to find and make the unique identifiers, in the place of manipulating the aspects acc. to index. Test will continue an unpredictable-path, if the order of list-varies and order of links modify. Maintains of such unexpected-tests is pretty-hard.

Check Aftermath, Don’t Make Just Stupid Clicking
In several automated test tools there’re the feature that allows for record automatically & then play-back a set of processes. Such the features are handy, when creating the tests, but the outcomes of these records and playback tactics will outcome in a low quality. Such the functions as selecting, typing, clicking & other, anyway the state of app will be changed. Proper outcomes will be checked in better tests after manipulating the elements in app. Have a test to verify that content of report is right, if test produces a report.

Don’t Make Pauses, Better Wait
Few periods of the time might be needed through app before outcomes are obtainable to the test for examine. Such condition is common specifically with the AJAX calls. Sometimes, it seems the nice for pause test and sleep to a few seconds until the checking an outcome, but it is a kind of definitely-bad practice. It keep’s in the mind, that-test will generate a mistaken failure, if the app takes a big period of the time for return. It’s better to have test wait to a particular aspects of the app to appear. It makes test less prone for mistaken failures & more-powerful, since test is really a waiting for or verifying the states of the app upon producing the aspects that the test expects for.

Avoid Using the Conditionals
This seems wise for use a conditional in the test for such the cases. But there’re a huge number of the problems with this method. The one problem is that the same as problem which appears after using the indexes in the place of specific locators; so if the app, which-is tested, exposed for changes, automated test might occur the completely unexpected or unbeknown-paths, causing the mistaken failures or making the maintenance very hard. It’s problem, when the one branch of the conditional-statement could vanish altogether.

Sort Order Must Be Examined With Regular Expressions
Correct order of the app’s appearing an aspect is often significant to user. Generally it’s significant that the automated tests check for correct order of things; whether it’s a text on page itself, columns in the tables and elements in a list.

What is BootRacer?

The BootRacer is a convenient & a free-tool that can helps you to calculate the system-boot up time. You-just have to initiates testing with the simple button click & then get rating of the system. This is a free download's Windows only. This utility is worked only on Windows-XP in testing, but the Windows-Vista is supposed to be supported, so if you get it-working. You can get lot of the useful-information, using a BootRacer.
·         Logon to Boot Time.
·         Total Boot-Time to Desktop.
·         The best Time for desktop, the system has shown in compare with the earlier outcomes difference between current outcomes about the measurement of time for desktop & the best boot-time for the desktop.
·         “Last Shutdown-Time” of tested the computer.

There’re the three different channels to view the measurements made through BootRacer:
·         The event-log under the Windows-Computer-Management.
·         This can be seen on interface as a pop up, when BootRacer has completed its measurement’s
·         A balloon on desktop of users
All of the measurements & placements can be configured through the user for fit his requirements. A tool provides special Graphical User Interface that allows it. Criterion that Boot-Racer uses for the boot-times rating are:
·         The best login time is 12 to 15 seconds.
·         The best boot for desktop time is less than a minute.
So now you’ve an opportunity to make it ease when you check the system’s boot-time. When, BootRacer is installed on computer, service name is “Boot-Racer-Service”. That tool can measure boot-time for login & for desktop on the system-tested.
BootRacer does not provide multiple-measurements. User has to boot the manually no. of times it needs for analysis.

The System Requirements for BootRacer
·         To use the BootRacer you required:
·         The personal machine with Windows XP /2000/2003/Seven/Vista /2008/ and higher
·         An amount of the disk space you needs to install the BootRacer is approx. 20 MB.
·         Memory requirements for the BootRacer are similar to those for OS.
·         Update the BootRacer for version 4.7

The one problem with this windows installer-package
·         You’ve settings preventing the executing scripts during the installation.
·         The BootRacer does not display the boot-time properly.

Benefits of BootRacer:
·         Ease to installation & use.
·         It calculates automatically the Windows boot-time.
·         It excludes the user passcode time out from total Boot-Time.
·         The BootRacer uses a minimum of the computer-resources.
·         It runs under non-administrator’s accounts.
·         The BootRacer logs all the outcomes for the history reports and to standard event log. You can checks the events using Windows-Event-Viewer.
       The BootRacer is free to non-commercial uses.

Agile Testing
This is a software-testing practice that follows principles of the agile-software-development.
Tips to agile testing

  •  Integrates testers in development team:

The teams are responsible's for delivering software's meets expected needs & quality. However’, if we want the teams to tests software, we must give them-the knowledge to do-it rights. Testers've that the knowledge. Through integrating the testers into development-teams, teams obtain skills they needs for test their software's.
  • Use risk based testing
In the agile project all of the activities are the time boxed, so you’ve to make the choices about how richly you want to tests each feature’s. We use the risk based approaches to determine which the test processes we’re going to carry-out for a feature during iteration. Risk level of the every feature is determined through customer & the teams. It’s a very transparent activity, so customer knows exactly which test processes are executed to every feature.
  • Have the testers re-view the unit tests
In organization, developers are responsible to creating & maintaining unit tests. The unit tests are very vital part of the test harness. The developers often’ve a different channel of the thinking; for instance, they tend to test only success-scenarios.
To create unit-tests that are as-good-as possible, the testers re-view unit tests for all the high risk items. Review has the two advantages; first of that, the unit-tests are improved because testers & developers supplement to each other; developer knows where weak areas in source are, & tester can use his knowledge’s of the testing to give tips for improve the unit tests. Second one is that; testers know exactly which the test-cases are executed in unit-tests & that can concentrate on executing the other test-cases.
  • Creates test automations framework
The automated testing is very vital, because the new features & refactoring can introduce the problems can-be difficult for find. Through using the automated test frameworks, we can maintain the quality of levels during iteration. Testers are able to create the new tests easily & quickly in framework. We’ve a dedicated the test engineer that maintains or optimizes test automations frameworks, re-views new automated test of testers or analyzes daily test outcomes. The testers in teams can spend the more time creating & extending the automated tests.

  • Add the test scrums
When you’ve project like ours where the testers're distributed across the many teams, communications becomes more-difficult. For solving this problem, we use the test scrum to align the test processes. Test scrum is a-scrum like daily team scrum but focused on the test processes. A test-manager is the Scrum-Master of test-scrum.

Advantages’ of the agile:
  • Customer’s satisfaction through rapid, continuous-delivery of the useful software’s:
  •  The people or interactions are emphasized rather than the activity or tools. Developers, Customers or testers-constantly interact with each other’s
  • The working software is delivered frequently
  • Even; the late changes in the requirements are most welcomed
  • Regularly attention’s for technical excellence or good design
  • Daily adaptations for changing the situations

Define the roles & tasks of the team members:

To productivity, roles of the team members should be defined-clearly. These roles might be the project manager, developer, team lead, tester and etc. Furthermore authorizations or responsibilities of these roles; should be defined very-clearly. A task assignment based development should also be applied to avoiding the redundant effords & anarchy.

Define the meeting types:
The meetings are very vital if we’re talking about software- process management & should be defined in details. The team member's should also obey the meeting-rules. It will bring more productive meeting & development-process, & will avoid the losing time un-necessarily.

Defines the documentation strategies:
Every single software- process has the documentation’s strategy, even agile and extreme methods. These documentation-types should be defined clearly (document standard sections, physical properties, version numbering document-update-period and etc.) understandability, for-consistency & more effective-software production.

Define the software quality metrics & measure them:
Acc to properties of the software type, few of these should be chosen to measure the quality & growth of the codes. This information might be discussed periodically or production quality will be increased after-assessments.

Perform issue and requirement tracking:
The requirement management and issue tracking is one of key-points in the software development. They determine scope of the software, also supports the traceability base to functional tests.
ALM Tools:
ALM means Application lifecycle management; it is a product lifecycle management (governance, maintenance, and development) of apps software. This encompasses requirements-management, computer programming, software-architecture, software’s testing, or software’s maintenance, change the management, project management, continuous integration, & the release management.

The ALM tools are:

ALMComplete:
It includes the functionality that keeps the teams organized across all aspects of the developing software:
  • Release managements.
  • Defect-tracking.
  • Test-management.
  • This suite also involves the collaboration aids like:
  • Document sharing.
  • Teams calendars.
  • Dash-boards.
  • Threaded discussions.
  • Knowledge’s base.


StarTeam:
Optimize the delivery process through connecting with multiple ALM repositories. It gain control across the teams, projects & tools through tracking changes for source code, defects or features. It allows the uses of any combination of the lifecycle tools & supports the established processes, such as Agile, waterfall.

Aldon Life cycle Manager:
It highlights the included configurable multiphase lifecycle process-automation, flexible architecture to IDE's, & role based interfaces to engineers, project-leads, development-managers, & senior IT management.

Test-Track Suites:
This also has a wide-range of operating system support which includes the Linux, UNIX, Mac or Windows.  Along with the better change or test tool integrations, Sea pine’s software is also very easy for the install or upgrade.

Meaning of QA:
Planned or systematic activities implemented in the quality system, so that quality requirement’s to a product and services will be fulfilled.
Test the single unit:
What is unit? A Smallest component of entire project-that properly tested. The unit testing generally focuses on sub routines levels although it’ll always be the based on tech or origin of project itself. Testers generally tend to automate the unit-testing; it also often’ desires a special stubs, drivers & harness.
A project includes components:
The component is accumulative of at very least-one, often-more-constituents. This level of the testing extends the unit-testing & adds included data types as-well-as called components. It is very alike for the unit-testing in it’s the trend of automation or creation of the stubs, harness or drivers.
Step-by-step processing:
Execute by the new or modified statements of the code with a sharp debugger & you’re done with a single step of testing. It is generally manual.
This offer engineers the chance of a testing few of constituents after they have been released & the system has-been transported to its same-environment. Data flow i.e. running in between a new component & the rest of tested software is being monitored carefully on this step.
Integrate deeper:
It one of specializes on verifications, and stabilizing of entire system & it is functional after system is infiltrated with the third-party-components.
Released time:
Releases the testing is mostly done before official-release. All projects functionalities i.e. dedicated for the customers, like installation-process, a first step of running-the-program etc. is being appropriately tested on this-step.
An application regression testing is frequently automated step i.e. focusing on not so expensive or effort consuming path of the testing components that has proven to be the functional earlier. Thing is that appropriately functional code might've changed due to the new lines added later. That’s, why regression-testing exists or is needed through every app.
Benefits of QA:
·         As the software quality is performed to ensure-that, the software is conformance for certain requirements or standards. Maintenance cost of software is gradually-reduced as software requires less-modification after the SQA. The maintenance refers for the correction or modification of the errors that might be discovered only after implementation of the program.

·         The higher reliability will outcome in greater customer satisfaction; as the software development is essentially the business transactions between a customer & developer, customers will naturally-tend for patronize-the-services of developer again, if they’re satisfied with product.

Application life cycle management:
This is the product-lifecycle-management (development or maintenance) of app software.
Success of the software is important for your business to be successful. Thus, software environments must be effectively & actively operated. It involves the app of Application Life cycle Management which is business of the designing, delivering, building, and testing, managing or maintaining the software. The testing part needs a special attention because of that leads the success of software.
Steps to choose Life Cycle Management Tool
The TLM Headings

  • The testing is no longer a click-activity, it’s more organized-science. It has structure or a method to, it’s doesn’t matter if it’s a management of the design, test cases, analysis and execution. The excel Words or XML’s are getting out of date as demands become more complex for manage & operate.
  • Such a rapidly moving market, it’s harder & harder for the organizations to respond efficiently with the legacy-tools. So, for new brands software-delivery, there is a need for the new brand transaction level modeling & ALM tools. Applications lifecycle paradigms differ from the traditional for agile nature of this TLM and ALM market has the several varied tools.

Cases to a strong test management tool
  • There're the plenty of TLM-tools that needs to integrate with each other-smoothly.
  • These diverse-tools could be performing the defect management, requirements management, automation, change-management, etc. The TLM tools needs to be an open-platform system tool’s that assimilates the smoothly with this- fluid environments.
  • This can be better, if the test management-solutions an intelligent testing platform with add-ons to a vertical-solution.
  • In TLM solutions have to provide the platform effectiveness which would help for display the mobile applications or websites faster. This should test or check any mobile application and website native and hybrid across the multiple devices & platforms such as Android, iOS, Windows and test interactions from the any part of the world.
  • The quality TLM solutions need to offers the strong reporting effectiveness without of the box efficiency for metrics-evaluation etc.
  • It helps in the decision to choosing the right TLM tool for the business.
Benefits of the ALM:
Agility
By collaboration & application of the "just-enough" activity

Predictability
 Through great estimation, better communications & more repeatable processes
Auditability
Traceability of the work back for a business needs, accountability to each change and decision made & ability for separate concerns
Quality
By more effective management of the requirements, design or quality-processes
Productivity
By continuous improvement of the processes & practices, or more effective utilization of the resources.

Definition of E-commerce:

It means of that “Electronic commerce” operates in the all four of major market-segments: business-to-business, business-to-consumer, consumer-to-consumer or consumer-to-business.

Steps to testing plan of an E-commerce sites:

The Functionality
It is a first step; we will run by the main functionality of an e-commerce web site that needs to be tested. Your web site might not have all of these items, and indeed might have some included here.
  •          Home page
  •          Featured-products
  •          Information’s pages
  •          Shipping information
  •          Special offers
  •          About page
  •          Returns policy
  •          Terms and condition page
  •          Privacy policy

The Product-category pages
      ·         Any filter such as the product filters, sizes, colors, types of the product and etc
      ·     Add in the shortlist and wish list-facility
      ·       Add in the basket.

Products searches
  •  Keyword-searches

Product detail pages
  • Products-title
  • Products descriptions
  • Products images
  • Enlarge-images
  • Any other product information’s, sizes, colors, options, and etc.
  •  Add in shopping basket

Shopping-baskets
  • Add product in basket
  •  Delete product from the basket
  •  Changes quantities
  •  Selects the delivery options

Paying Methods
  • Move in checkout-process
  • It is a testing plan to an e-commerce sites then a specific-section of plan should be devoted for the checkout or payment field of the website.
  • The lots of pressures are put for them as something related for money & appropriated data. Especially the following:
  •  Generate few solutions or ideas from the user’s feedbacks. Initiative-is great & when you can make something good, why should not you?
  • User-testing is highly vital. Watch, how real people are handling the tasks they’re supposed to fulfill with the ease. And they’ll not be the paying something hard to understands. Make-sure they’re not facing any stiff challenges after all they trust on this site with their money.
  • The pair testing with some another analysis stuffs. Heat-maps are the great mean that might assist with the testing.
  •  An a/b testing is good, when you’ve appropriate amount of the users.
  •  Make-sure all is the optimized. This has no right to be just the initiative from your development-team.
  • There’re multiple reasons, due to which you may consider the adding changes to your e-commerce sites.

Testing tools for e-commerce sites:
  •  Optimizely

It is one of best tool to A/B testing, which used to measure the impacts of the changes of the two variants in the designs.
  • Google AdWords

It is one of the tools that can help you to promote your e-commerce sites more efficiently or also boost the sales.
  •  Search Spring

It’s a popular sites navigation solution that helps the online retailers to connect the shoppers with the relevant products & boost your product sales.
  • Unbxd

It’s a relatively new entry for the e-commerce marketers’ toolkit. It provides the intelligent, context aware site search or personalized recommendations.
  • Zen desk

Zen desk helps you to provide the better customers services without having a customer service-team.

Performance Testing
A performance testing is a process of determining the-speed and effectiveness of the computer, network, software program and device. In this process, it can involve the quantitative tests done in the lab, such as measuring the response-time and the number of “millions of instructions per second” at which the systems functions.

Types of performance testing

Stress Testing:
The Stress Testing is a performance-testing type to checks the stability of software, when the hardware resources are not-sufficient like memory, CPU, disk space etc. A stress testing is the Negative testing, where we load-the software with the large number of concurrent users and processes which can’t be handled through the system’s hardware resources.  Main idea behind the stress-testing is to determine the-failure of systems & to keep an eye on, how the system-gracefully get recover back, this quality is called as recoverability. Stress testing comes under Non-Functional-Testing & it’s designed for test, the non-functional requirements of a software app.
Load Testing:
The Load Testing is a type of performance-testing to checks the system with constantly increasing load on system until time load is reaches to its threshold-value. It is normally carried out-underneath controlled-environment in order to distinguish between the two different systems. It is also known as “Endurance Testing”& “Volume Testing”.  Main purpose of the load testing is to monitor the response-time or staying the power of application, when the system is performing well under the heavy-load. The Load-testing comes under the Non-Functional-Testing and it is designed for test non-functional requirements of the software app.

Volume testing:
The Volume testing is a non-functional-testing which refers to the testing a software app with a large amount of a data to be processed for checks the efficiency of app. The main goal of this testing is to monitor the performance of application under varying database volumes.

Scalability Testing:
The Scalability Testing is a type of non-functional-tests & it is the testing of a software app for determines its capability to scale up in the terms of any of its non-functional-capability like user load supported, number of transactions, and the data volume etc. The primary aim is that; if this testing is for understand at what peak system prevent more-scaling.

Spike testing:
The Spike testing is a subset of the Stress Testing. A spike-test is carried out to validate the-performance of characteristics, when the system under test subjected to workload-models & load-volumes that repeatedly-increase beyond the anticipated productions operations for the short periods of time.
Soak Testing:
Soak testing focuses on long time period. They determine’s; whether the system can works under a continuous-loads. During the soak tests it’s important to pay the attention for such an issue as performance in-degradation which means that response time after the long time period would be worse than the-beginning.
Component Testing:
The component testing aims to checks the performance of any separate-component of the system such as the search function, pictures-upload, online-chats and etc.
Configuration testing:

The configuration testing is an essential test for dynamic systems. Changes made for systems configuration always needs to be tested for the understanding the effects they cause to the performance & behavior.
