Where qTrace can save your team’s effort and how to measure its saving

qTrace is designed to be used mainly by software testers. But it does not only help save the time spent by software testers alone. The clarity of its bug reports increases the effectiveness and efficiency of team communications, which results in the time saving for software developers and team leads who investigate, fix, and manage bugs. Thus, qTrace users may overlook its benefits if they evaluate the tool with only software testers.

Exploratory Testing, for whom its good for

Exploratory testing is a testing methodology that seeks to find how the software actually works, during its process period. Any software produced is measured by its quality, which is tested and verified; the level of its testing is dependent on the tester's skill of inventing test cases and finding defects. The more the tester knows about the product and different test methods, the better the testing will be. Comparison can be made of freestyle exploratory testing to its antithesis scripted testing.

Testing Terms: V


Value-Based Quality - A view of quality, wherein quality is defined by price. A quality product or service is one that provides desired performance at an acceptable cost. Quality is determined by means of a decision process with stakeholders on trade-offs between time, effort and cost aspects. [After Garvin] See also manufacturing-based quality, productbased quality, transcendent-based quality, user-based quality.  Smile

Automated Software Testing: An Example of a Working Solution

Because vendor-provided tools and open source solutions alone didn't meet the needs of our project for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) team developed a custom automation framework for the DoD's real-time, mission-critical systems. Our eventual solution used a mixture of available open source tools and other tools developed in-house.

Ranorex – UI Test Automation Tool for Professionals

Found something, which is unique to Ranorex. It has the ability to package a test case into EXE file, making it easy to integrate and activate within some other tools that are in the local Testing Lab. Even sharing the generated test report with the integrating system is easy, based on the open standards Ranorex is relying on. It can even be a part of your Integration and Gating testing after every build. The ability to create and activate your own hybrid tests can be timesaving for QA

Test Data Management - Goals and planning

Test data management is a set of procedures that allows the company to create better solutions using test data sets. We mean, desktop or client-server software and database system as well as web-service or any other solution that deals with large scale data arrays. The first and most important step of the process is goal identification. The company should decide why test data sets or databases are important. Also, developers, QA engineers and administrators have to describe how test data helps to make software or hardware solutions better.

Automatic Regression, Do we really need it ?

Regression done by the Automatic Testing Framework is not an easy task. It takes an Automation engineer and maybe more, good design, and a well-versed programmer to handle the task for a year or more.

Are we prepared for Automatic Regression? Is it worth the expense?

Here are some questions that can illuminate the subject:

Automated Testing Tools, Compare and Select

You cannot complete a development process without doing an appropriate testing cycle. You start with manual testing but soon wish to add automated testings.
With the availability of so many testing tools, selecting the tool that will answer your needs becomes a job for professionals.
The tool analyzing process should be finalized with a check-box table that sums up all your system requirements, and point you towards the most appropriate tools, that you should try.
Your final selection will then direct you to the best suited tool for your work flow and testing needs.
Remember: There is no such thing as Best Tool, rather the Most Appropriate tool.

Developers Need Automation, Yes/No? I say: They Must!!

Do developers need to test their own code, before releasing their module ?

There are a number of different ways that code can and should be tested by developers. Good and SOLID code is easily tested (TDD or at worst unit tested), but developers should definitely consider feature and functional testing to be their responsibility before expecting someone else to review it.

There are many studies on the cost advantage and value in finding bugs early, but also a good developer will not give buggyunconfirmed code over for review (or not?)

Service Virtualization - service virtualization is a method to emulate the behavior of specific components in heterogeneous component-based applications such as API-driven applications, cloud-based applications and service-oriented architectures. It is used to provide software development and QA/testing teams access to dependent system components that are needed to exercise an application under test (AUT), but are unavailable or difficult-to-access for development and testing purposes. With the behavior of the dependent components "virtualized," testing and development can proceed without accessing the actual live components. Service virtualization is recognized by vendors, industry analysts, and industry publications as being different than mocking. (Wikipedia)

Mobile Testing with Open Source VoIP

Open Source VoIP softphones are most needed when we want to start doing some test on our system, to get the real user experience. not all softphones are good for testing purposes but let's start examining those tools that are free. Please comment and suggest your own/preferred testing tool for our mobile/voip user experience test. Softphones are good for manual and automatic testing. Some even give an API for better testing and operation reliability. The one I selected are all top quality open source softphones.

VoIP Performance - Testing, Tools Review

Do you know what is holding your VoIP performance?

Packet Loss, Jitter, Packet Delay, latency. All those things are network related and usually most VoIP quality problems come from the network. This article is focused on some free applications for testing VoIP networks performance. Good testing starts with free testing tools and keen eye, and in this special article, even ear. Network problems not only influence the traffic and data integrity, it effects the sound as well; sound and voice over ip. So, let's start presenting the free voip testing tools, and if you already know what you need then you are ready for the hardcore tools. Good VoIP deployment starts with proper testing.
