Pursue Agile Continuous Deployment

Since it first burst on the software development scene, agile has quickly usurped waterfall as the go-to method for creating, testing and releasing products. Many organizations have credited a switch to agile for reducing the amount of time and resources needed to complete a development cycle. In addition, the concept of continuous deployment which lies at the heart of agile methods often allows businesses to release more engaging products that better meet the demands of end users. This is because agile developers are continually looking to incorporate feedback from consumers, employees and upper management.

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.

Mobile testing with Espresso, Google testing tool.

Running tests on real Android devices is highly time consuming and expensive due to the large number and variety of such devices. A solution is to execute tests on an emulator, a controllable environment supporting multiple OS versions, screen sizes and memory constraints. This approach would catch most code bugs, the rest of them being left to real device testing and human testers.

Sahi Open Source

Introduction

Sahi Open Source (or just Sahi) is a test automation tool for web applications. Sahi is especially good for testing dynamic AJAX applications. Sahi handles dynamic ids, automatically waits for page loads/AJAX activity to subside, and instead of complex mechanisms like XPath and CSS Selectors, exposes simple APIs like _in, _near etc. to identify one element with respect to another. Sahi’s playback mechanism is highly robust and does not need unnecessary wait statements.

iPhoneUnitTesting

Introduction

For a long time, Apple didn't provide a way to do iOS unit testing, so Google Toolbox For Mac helped fill that gap by providing all the support to write tests with SenTest just like you could for OS X. But as of Xcode 4.x, Apple has supported unit testing iOS and taken it even further than before with Xcode integration for controlling what tests are run, debugger support, etc. Google Toolbox For Mac on iOS now supports both the older Google Toolbox For Mac only way (building a App and GTM does everything) and working in parallel with Apple's support

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.

Jameleon, Object oriented testing framework

QA and even the customer needs to have the ability to tie separate features (that were scripted by a more skilled QA engineer) together and feed the new test some data without having to get their hands dirty. It's the customer, who creates the business rules.  
Jameleon generates the test case documentation, the test-script (macro), categorizes the test case based on the function points and on a simple test-level that is set, and makes the new case available to the test farm and anyone else based solely on the order of the features grouped together in the test case.

Software Quality Assurance means Performance

What are the key elements I was expecting for my desired Load Testing Tool?

  1. Reliable: it should truly activate the thing/transactions/user scenario it is intend for, even when trying to do so, with huge amount of virtual users.
  2. Reporting: Clear, with Images and Graphs that shows you exactly what was done and happened within the running period. Good reporting will lead to Good Decision.
  3. (this is only the top on my wish list)

Test Management – Intuitive, Fast and Most Integrative

You cannot test large releases without a plan, cannot analyze your regression without test results history, and cannot close all routes without good integration level to the current in-house defect system. In short, for professional testing, you need a professional tool. In addition, when we say professional, it means intuitive, reliable and integrative Test Management solution.   READ MORE
