test automation Questions

Hi,

We have been using Test Complete for the last 7 years to test our WPF desktop Windows applications and it works well. We have also recently integrated it with our GitHub actions to run the tests as part of our pipeline. The problem is that the latest license renewal prices from SmartBear have skyrocketed and so we have started looking for alternatives - preferably freeware/open source, but if not, something cheaper that will give us the same results. We will need to somehow convert our code/environment/CI to the new tool so it needs to support GitHub Actions. If there was some sort of conversion tool that would be a bonus. I would be happy to hear what other people think?

Thank you,

Ofer

 

Hey Testing Community! 

Our QA team is currently exploring new tools for performance testing and PerfDog has caught our attention. They support Android, iOS, and Web platforms, also seems to integrate well with CI/CD pipelines.

We're now considering switching to PerfDog, but before we make a decision, we'd love to hear from anyone who has used it. Could you share your experiences, the pros and cons, and how it stacks up against other popular tools like JMeter?

Thanks in advance for your insights!

how to configure database to automation testing framework using selenium & cucumber

Hello, everyone!

 

I've been working as a manual tester for over 3 years now, and I've encountered various challenges along the way. One of the most critical aspects that I feel often gets overlooked is developing a robust test plan. While Automated Testing gets much attention, especially in discussions about CI/CD pipelines, I believe that manual testing still plays an essential role in software development, especially for testing usability, exploring edge cases, and ensuring the quality of the final product.

 

I wanted to create a forum topic that delves into the intricate world of Manual Testing. Specifically, how do you go about creating a comprehensive test plan?

 

Here are some questions I have in mind:

 

Scope Definition: How do you define the scope of your manual testing? Do you strictly adhere to specifications and requirements, or do you also explore the application beyond that?

 

Test Case Design: What methodologies do you use for designing your test cases? Do you follow traditional methods like boundary value analysis, equivalence partitioning, etc., or do you also include exploratory testing techniques?

 

Test Environment: How do you set up your test environment? Are there any particular tools that you find helpful in manual testing for configuring the environment or managing test data?

 

Reporting: What strategies do you follow for bug tracking and reporting? How detailed are your bug reports, and what elements do you think are essential to include?

 

Collaboration: How do you collaborate with developers and other stakeholders during the testing phase? Do you have any tips for effective communication to ensure that bugs are understood and fixed promptly?

 

Test Plan Review: How often do you update your test plan, and what triggers an update? Is it an iterative process for you?

 

Time Management: Manual Testing can be time-consuming. How do you manage your time effectively to ensure you cover all the necessary test cases?

 

I think these points can be a good starting point for a comprehensive discussion on how to optimize the manual testing process and create a well-rounded test plan.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Please, i am looking for quality education for manual testing (QA), but I don’t want to learn in groups of more than 20 to 30 people. Is there some online school where there are not more than 15-20 people in a group and a lot of practice? Can you share your experience with me pls? Thanks!!

What do you think are the Top 5 challenges of performing testing of APIs, I am referring only to only functional testing. I have generally come across many folks who are very good from app and business understanding but are not sure how to perform functional testing on APIs, what other reasons do you think exist as challenges to API tesing.

Hi guys, looking for quality education for manual testing (QA) with less than 20 to 30 people. Is there really some online school where there are not more than 15-20 people in a group and a lot of practice? Can you share your experience with me pls? Thanks!

Please list the Pros and Cons of manual testing.

Hello all,I'm preparing for a manual testing interview and I'm having some trouble figuring out how to answer some of the questions. I'm especially stuck on a particular question involving writing code. I referred to this resource. The question is:

"Write a program that takes an integer as an input and prints the sum of all the digits in the input number."I've tried this code, but it doesn't seem to be working:int number, sum = 0;court << "Enter an integer: ";
in >> number;

while (number != 0)
{
sum += (number % 10);
number /= 10;
}

court << "The sum of the digits is: " << sum << endl;

Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong? Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

It takes too much of my time lately, so I am looking for some ways to makes it faster. Haven't tried any tools yet, would appreciate any advice from you!
