QA and
Software Testing

Quality can not be taken for granted in the modern IT landscape.The performance of any company is calculated by its consistency and the loyalty of its consumers on its product.

To make businesses competitive in the market, it is very important to build trust with end-users. This can be accomplished by meeting their expectations and demands with high-quality service. Quality assurance helps a business achieve this. If quality management is done correctly, it builds confidence, evaluates the product and allows companies to run their businesses with very little worry. High-quality practices make it possible for both company owners and operators to take pride in their work.

Functional Testing

It is a type of Black Box software testing, used to ensure that the software application’s functions comply with the requirement specification. It mainly involves testing the process and working, of the application. All the functionalities in the application are tested by providing input and checking the output and comparing it with the expected results. This includes checking numerous commands and executable scripts, data handling, and process integration. Functional checking also defines how the software responds to the different modifications of the host system. Security concerns of the software and stability of its utilities whenever an update is implemented are also taken care by Functional testing.

Non Functional Testing

The testing process that involves verification of the non-functional requirements like usability, performance, etc. is Non-Functional Testing. It covers testing of all the features of the software application which can help get an application that will meet business requirements and expectations. The non-functional requirements include performance output as expected from the application under test. It helps to reduce the risk of development and costs associated of the software.

How we

do at Baxture

01
Requirements

In combination with the creation of documents, the QA team at Baxture begin to work on the project. The purpose is to evaluate the structure of the system and the technology for flaws. Any changes made in the requirement or added or deleted can be seen by all the members.

Requirement Traceability Matrix(RTM):- Requirement Traceability Matrix(RTM)
Automation Feasibility Report:- checklist that decides whether to proceed or not with automation of the test cases.
02
Test case plan

Test planning includes the development of a document outlining the overall approach and test goals. QA team decides the steps to be taken to ensure that the software will perform as per the planning and builds test cases. The below activities are involved in the test case development

Evaluation of test cases:- Examining the potential users, their mindset and actions. Enumerating the possible cases of system abuse. Listing benefits and checking them. A deep study of the complaints of the competitor’s product.
Final drafting of test cases:- Test case document includes preconditions, expected outcomes, test data and other conditions that are for a particular test case with certain requirements.
Preparation of test data:- Test Data is required for executing the test. The data that is taken for performing the test is very precise so that the bugs or defects can be uncovered.
Identification of the requirements and conditions to be tested

Choose the priority test conditions and assessing the estimated outcome of the production of the test cases followed by creating test cases.
Documenting tests conditions
Verifying test cases and correcting them after conducting tests.
03
Preparing layout for test cases

Now the testers begin their job by performing the test cases, to check whether or not the application is developed correctly and the initial requirements are met or not. For projects that last long more, automated tests are performed.

Below is the set of activities performed by our QA engineers:- The stage one test performed here is the Smoke Test. Smoke testing is a method in which the code build is implemented in the quality assurance process and tested to guarantee the reliability of the program. It has a small number of test cases and is a non-exhaustive process.
Integration testing:- The aim of integration testing is to detect faults in the interaction between integrated units. Any White Box Testing, Black Box Testing, and Gray Box Testing methods can be used.
04
Documenting and measuring the errors

When a defect is discovered, it is then recorded in an error tracking system. We use configurable software where tracking of bugs is easy and all the members can see the real-time updates of the task. The problems are assigned a priority level, basis which the developers resolve each one of them level wise.

Test cases updated with results

05
Verification of corrections

If the developer addresses a problem it is discussed with the QA team who is responsible for checking it. When there is no issue detected the ticket in the error tracking system is shut down. The errors only after getting verified can be marked as fixed. The complete cycle is ended by making concluding comments on all activities of the testing process in regard to their implementation and/or prevention. The below documents are created in this step

Our

Solutions

Manual Testing:- Process that involves testing software for errors, by manually executing the test cases according to the end user’s perspective is Manual testing.There is no rigorous method followed by the tester. It allows to understand the issue at a theoretical and emotional level. It binds to the end-user and exposes the tester to a degree of empathy. It is appropriate for exploratory, adhoc and usability testing. It should also be used when the AUT switches regularly. The testers are able to discover user interface issues and usability glitches whle interacting with the software.

The testing technique followed at Baxture is Unit Testing, White Box Testing, Black Box Testing, Integration Testing, System Testing, Acceptance Testing.

Automation Testing involves specific tools to monitor the performance of the tests and compares the actual outcomes with the expected outcomes. It is ideal for regression testing, performance testing, load testing or extremely repeatable practical test cases. All users may log in to the automation system and review the results of the test. Also multiple tet scripts can be batched together for execution at any time. It uses framework like Keyword, Data Drive, Hybrid to accelerate the automation process.

Automated software is ideal for regression testing, performance testing, load testing or extremely repeatable practical test cases.

Automation Testing increases the overall performance of code and guarantees stable software quality.

increased_performance

Increased Performance

A lot of time is saved even for complex and huge systems, as the implementation time is very quick. It allows for faster and quicker delivery with less effort and in very less time. As the time required for performing the test is less, this contributes to high-quality work which reduces the number of errors and time in fixing it hence low project cost. Running lengthy tests is hard to schedule manually as they cannot be left unattended or require a large number of human resources.

reusability

Reusability

The test cases in automation testing are repetitive in nature and are reused with different approaches. In addition to the relatively easy configuration of their system, software developers have the opportunity to evaluate the application response. Automated test cases are modular and can, therefore, be used in a number of methods. It can also be recorded to reuse and execute similar testing operations. Over time, library of redundant scripts becomes an important asset for the test team and reduces the cost of automated script processing.

reusability
test_coverage

More number of test coverage

As the implementation time is very less and the number of tests executed on a program can be more as compared to manual testing. Improved test coverage results in the testing of more functionality and higher quality software. The types of Test coverage performed are Code Coverage, Data Coverage, other platform-related like Cross-Browser testing.

return_investment

Return on Investment

One of the most significant benefits of automation technology is the return on investment of the company. Automated software testing offers great returns in terms of quicker tests, error-free performance, less manual work. Automated testing can also be performed out across various platforms, with different data sets, when created. Regression analysis is one of the major benefits of a development team that saves time and money. This leads to a higher quality of work, reducing the need for post-release bugs and reducing project costs.
