Slim Down Your Test Plan Documentation

Summary:
Test plans are essential for communicating intent and requirements for testing efforts, but excessive documentation creates confusion—or just goes unread. Try the 5W2H method. The name comes from the seven questions you ask: why, what, where, when, who, how, and how much. That's all you need to provide valuable feedback and develop a sufficient plan of action.

Streamline Your Agile Requirements by Avoiding Bloated Backlogs

Summary:
In agile development, a bloated backlog results from teams accumulating huge lists of requirements, usually in the form of user stories. Retaining every possible story for building the product weighs down the backlog while squeezing (or obscuring) the highest-value stories. The best way to help minimize this risk is to optimize the time spent defining and refining the product priorities.

what are highly vulernable areas in ecommerce website, that needs to test properly?

how to test vulnerability of ecommerce, whether the applied security is properly working or not?

whether the website can be hacked by anyone or not

Justin Rohrman's picture

This is highly dependent on the product you are working on, the technology stack used to build it, the team that built is, and how security has been handled so far. If you are asking because you want to start a security investigation, you will probably want to talk with your development team to organize that work.

The Unspoken Requirement: Testing for Consistency

Summary:
It's easy to see that style consistency is important when discussing the user interface. But there are other areas where being consistent is just as important, even though they are not as visible. Consistency is one of the quality attributes of a product—any product—even if it is not stated clearly in the requirements documents, and testers have a responsibility to check for it.

Where would you recommend finding the best documentation for Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL)?

Todd Brawn asked on April 28, 2017 - 12:43pm | Replies (1).

Looking to ensure we meet EAL-4 for a product and need looking for the best reference material. Thank you.

A quick google search did not show any useful for EAL documentation. This might be something reserved for auditors and consultants.

Your requirements to an automated visual regression testing tool?

It seems that a popular approach to QA automation is a quick start to cover a most critical area with automated tests ASAP and then proceed automating other areas of testing. This second phase requires more dedicated tool(s). So, what features are most important for such a tool so that it could be useful for your web application?

Michael Tomara's picture

Thanks for your reply, Justin! It seems that the concern about CI integration is getting increasingly popular lately, when it comes to test automation tools. Screenster is an example of such a tool, and it pretty much covers this feature list. Interested to check it out?

Justin Rohrman's picture

I thinik you hit the main features I would be interested in for a UI testing API. Being able to integrate wiith CI would probably be at the top of my list. If you can't run the tests with every build and get information to people with agency to act on it, then the tool isn't very useful IMO.
