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?
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.
has anyone tried to test their web sites within Facbook's mobile app web browser? I wondering if there are any benefits from having my testers go through our e-commerce site using the browser. We do advertise on Facebook, so I can see a benefit, but I'm convinced it should be part of our browser rotation when we test.
I work in the healthcare industry and we are looking to bring a tool in-house for automation. Currently our billing application is done in Java Swing and I have found capatibility issues using Selenium against Swing, but not sure about QTP or TestComplete.
Any insight on the better of the two and why would be incredibly helpful. Thank you in advance.
