testing Questions

We are small Dev shop who outsources mobile app development to a third party.  We do in-depth user acceptance testing of the app in house.  We currently have a couple an older iphone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6.  Was looking to expand/upgrade our hardware.  Was wondering if anyone out there was using IOS and Android tablets to do their manual testing as opposed to smart phones to allow for a bigger display/ease of testing.  

I am asking you to please recommend good books to read about general testing of an application.

 

Suppose you work at company, and a new client asks for his new software. 

You know many tools, Selenium, Protractor, SoapUI, RestAssured, API Testing.

 

But what is the process you take to start the testing of the client tool?

How do you choose where to start testing from? 

 

Specific about Automation. 

How do you choose which API calls to test? Which are in the regression test suite?

How do you know how much testing is enough? 

Tests usually dont fail, how do you look for tests that actually fail? 

 

I have knowledge on tools, and I can do as I'm told, 

but I want to be more as a test automation lead, so I need to have more experience

than just following the lead.

 

Suppose you work at a Company. 

And a new Client arrives, he needs the system he has, and he continues to build, to be tested. 

What is the approach you take, to find

-which tests to approach

-which tests to automate

-which tools to use

-how to build a solution for that client Testing and Automation testing needs?

Hello, 

do you use image recognition testing tools like Sikulix ?

How do you overcome the restrictions that the test tool needs always to be executed in a screen with the same resolution ? 

Usually the test case fails when is executed in a screen with a different resolutions.

Are any tools / image matching algorithms that allow to overcome this limitation?

Thanks in advance

Hi everyone,

I am a CS graduate student taking a course on Software Engineering. I would like to eventually do a project on generating test cases from software requirements but first I would like to understand why there aren't more tools doing so.

It would be great to have your response on this!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

 

 

I have been in software test for medical devices/software for the last five years, across three different companies. With my prior two organizations we formally validated our web-based software products only for the one or two most recent versions of Internet Explorer (at those times). Having our software work in Chrome or Firefox were nice-to-haves, but we did not communicate to our customers that we supported those browsers,  I'm soon to start work on a major release of an existing product, and the Project has decided to officially test/validate only Chrome, based on our current knowledge that the current release has known issues with IE. Seems to me we could be taking the easy way out, and not taking into consideration what our users use (often by policy). Apparently we don't currently have that information, though, I have brought it up that we should try to figure that out. 

Historically, hospitals/labs/medical offices/etc have - by policy - typically only employed IE for business use, but I know market share in this sector has been shifting to Chrome. But how much/fast? General browser usage, and even entrprise usage statistics are easy to come by, but I'm banging my head at this point trying to find information specific to healthcare/medical research. 

What are your experiences/thoughts on this?

In the company where I work there are 3 products: software, application and site - each with a different QA process. The question is how would you suggest integrating the QA process in different scenarios? Because there are tasks in which the QA man checks the task and there are those who "created" the task and checked whether it was indeed done at his request.  

I look forward to your comments on this subject.  

Thanks!

Everyone is now looking for the automation testing. Because there is lot of problem happening in manual test case generation and execution. So, how can I increase users for manual testing? is any latest features there? if it means, please let me know..

Currently, we have created a reservation system using outlook rooms. Each test environment within the lab has a "room" that someone can book in outlook and gives the user/tester the ability to see what labs are available. However, there are limits to the amount of information that can be supplied for each "room" and it really is not easy to see further details of the "room" (server image, server os, sql server version, application versions, etc). 

 

I know about LabAgenda, and may pursue this. But is there any other systems out there that people prefere? 

I am tasked with coming up with a quick estimate to test a new complex internal website, multiple browsers, OS, mobile. Plan on using automation, is there any quick guesstimate i can use? thanks
