test management Questions

 

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

I do quality assurance lead work on medium scale ERP implementation projects, relatively complex and 1-2 years long.  Most of what I do is helping clients create their testing strategy, plan test events, gather results, train and manage testers, etc... I do very little actual testing.  I've taken some courses on quality assurance (for example, ISTQB), however I find most of the information is specific to greenfield software development; I struggle to find anything specific to ERP implementations, which are a different animal entirely.  There are some concept similarities, but I've had to build my own system for what I do.

I'm always keen to sharpen my skills, but the well is pretty dry here.  Am I alone in this?  Is anyone else looking for this type of information?  I can find a few blogs here and there, but nothing substantive.

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.
 

Please list the Pros and Cons of manual testing.

can i get a small help about selenium and scrolling the left panel only?

I currently have a vendor that is working with us for staffing and Test Data Management is our next step in maturing our organization.  Has anyone been down this path?  I just don't want to take the word of the vendor as the only opinion.

 

thanks...
