Have you been measuring how many defects you find at unit testing and system testing per KLOC and how much may cost to fix them?

 

I can find some information like:

with code reviews + unit testing one can find up to 70% of the defects.

https://www.iiitd.edu.in/~jalote/papers/2WCSQPaper.pdf

Other studies say that the cost of finding and fixing a defect at unit testing is $428 and at system testing is $1045.

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)

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

What are the latest advances in Performance testing?

I'm in my early twenties, looking to make a career change to Business Analsis. My undergraduate degree is in philosophy, and my professional experience is in customer service and sales. For personal reasons, if I am ever to work for a graduate degree, now is the time.

 

Would an MBA and/or a MS in IT Management be valuable in a business analysis career, either in breaking in OR advancing in that field at some point in the future? Thanks!

Hi!

I am looking for a tool that would go through a piece of code and would generate a list of all aspects that could / should be tested:

  • the interesting values of a variable: especially the values where decisions are based upon
  • all the possible combination at logic brenches: the combinations that lead the execution of the code to a specific path

That are two kinds of code that are actual at the moment:

  • C code
  • model-based development

Thanks for  your ideas and support!

I am visiting my offshore team for the first time, ant tips on how to make the most of the trip?

 

We have an offshore team ratio 65-35. I have recently been appointed Head of the testing department and I am visiting the offshore team. Do you have any tips on what types of activities/tasks I can do with my team to get the most from this visit.

 

Thanks!

can you validate a test case at the device level by pointing to the results of a test case at the functional or unit level? (Can a Uit test be used for validation of a Device level test?  Can a Unit test be used to validate an Integration level test?)

Can you validate a test case by pointing to another test case at the same level? (i.e., can one DFS test be used to validate another DFS test?, can one Unit test be used to validate another Unit test?)

Curious to hear your thoughts (open source only) on preference for using Geb vs Selenium.

 

-Cheers

Suggest the list of widely used Automated Testing tools.

We are looking at testing tools and Selenium was recommended. So we are trying to find out what the pros and cons of using Selenium are for automated testing from testers who have been using it.

To see a comparison of these two automation tools, look here
