Hi,
I have recently started my career in Software Testing. In my company there is no tool used in software testing. So I need some suggested tools which are free for Linux OS. It maybe a defect reporting tool or any other testing tool
Thank you

We use Team Foundation Server for development and testing. Our Director has told our scrum master to go to 1-week sprints AND remove testing tasks from the product backlog to change the definition of "Done". We could use a suggestion on how to ensure we get testing tasks assigned, and track their progress, when our only tools are TFS and Google Docs. Having been forced to use Google Docs to track testing in the past, I expect issues trying to share -- for instance -- a spreadsheet to do this. Tasks could be forgotten or missed. Updates may go uncommunicated.

when doing cross browser testing what points shoud to be consider.this question includes testing in mobile devices as well

We are starting a new project for a new client - who uses linux - I have not tested on linux before so not sure what the differences are between linux and windows 7.

Are there any differences?  Does it look, act and functionally work in the same way as on windows 7 platform?

thanks

It is a time and materials contract.  I wish to add financial incentives for time, but I'm worried that this will cause people to rush the execution to make the bonus deadline.  Besides setting a realistic deadline, I'm trying to think of a way to add a component that will speak to the quality of the test run. 

I'm working on refining our definitions for test results and have the following:

Pass - Test executes and all verification points pass (behavior matches requirements)

Fail - Test executes and 1 or more verification points fail (it does not meet requirements)

Blocked - Test case cannot be executed due to a defect in current or associated product (something like.. i cant even install the software)

Skipped - Tester determined that test did not need to be run and did not execute the test (He/She knew it would fail due to an already logged defect for example)

 

There is a contingent of folks who want to use the following result:

Pass with Exceptions -- Test case passed all verification points but failed due to an anomaly found in a related product or in an area not related to the requirements being tested.. for example -- i'm looking at load performance and i see an unrelated defect in the GUI.

 

I am opposed to this definition as it seems to be a little unclear with regard to intent and I have seen the definition get changed to allow failing test cases to "Pass with exception"

 

Has anyone seen any standards published that provide guidance in this area?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

 

Hello,

 

Iam new to this site and found it very useful. I have worked as a software tester for 7 years  and would like to return to the testing market again after a gap of 2 years from the industry as my child is young.

I have worked on Agile methodologies and some scripting in ruby (basic knowledge) with Cucumber.

I would like to learn few technologies and an automation tool before I start looking for jobs. Please advice me what scripting langauge and automation tools I should focus on.

Since I have a gap of 2years I would like to gain skills before I start giving interviews.

Please help!
