testing Questions

Each QA automation team has its own specific priorities when choosing a test automation tool to facilitate the UI regression testing process. But what approach is more popular: a lightweight solution which is simple and quick grasp (but will not cover all your regression testing scope) or a full-scale test automation framework which can do much more but will require lots of time to create and maintain the test coverage? What would you/your team/your manager(s) choose and why?

Any recommendations?

I've trialled:

  1. Xray
  2. Kanoah
  3. QTest Manager -  this is very similar to HP ALM
  4. JIRA - create a new issue type in it
  5. Hip Test
  6. qTest Scenario
  7. Qmetric
  8. Test Collab
  9. Test Rail
  10. Test Link

My organisation currently uses HP ALM.

When  a client sends requirements, should a QA person be involved to validate them? If yes then what should be the process?

It’s notable that the launch of Tablets has increased the number of iPad App Testing Services for the past couple of years. There is a tight competition between the companies to publish quality iPad apps. But most of the apps fail to get approved in the Apple App Store review process. Now, businesses begin to realize that lack of proper testing has led to the failure of apps. Can someone say about the things to look for while hiring iPad App Testing Services?

 

 

As you know, nowadays there is a wide demand for android apps. This has increased the number of Android App Testing Services in recent years. As users demand for quality apps publishers have to depend on testing services. Testing companies use numerous frameworks to make your app user friendly. Can you suggest some top testing frameworks used by Android App Testing Services?

Hi there,

I am interested in expanding my limited knowledge of performance testing, firstly trying to undetrstand the basics but then ramping up to actually running performance and load tests using tools. Can anyone recommend the best apparoach and recommend some on-line courses to begin with.

Also are there freeware tools available or is a commercial product the best thing to invest in.

Any guidance from members, suggestions etc.

Hi,

I manage a rather large number of virtual machines as one of my roles as a testing manager.  There are a lot of testers that use these various machines for different configurations, automated test execution, etc.   I try to manage who's using what via spreadsheet but with a large number of people it's an imperfect process in need of some attention.   Is there any process or tool that others have found useful to perhaps create a checkout process for virtual machines and enforce it?

Thanks,

Mike

There are many tools available in the market for automation testing.But which is the best tool to start with who does not have experience in Automation testing but has worked on manual testing.

As I know, here's the list of some automation testing tools that i think they are the best at this moment:

1. Testcomplete https://smartbear.com (It's a paid automation tool. It's an little tricky to learn and use but quite similar to Selenium)

2. Katalon Studio: https://www.katalon.com (It's a free automation tool - enhances Selenium and Appium with a complete test automation framework that helps you start testing in no time)

3. Tosca Testsuit: www.tricentis.com (There are many more features that are useful for automation but there can really be a need for some coding effort to integrate with your application)

And anything else?
