It depends on the type of testing you are going to perform:

For Automation - Selenium and UFT(QTP)

For Performance - Jmeter and loadrunner

For Services testing - SOAP UI

For unit testing - mbunit, testng

Its depends your skill and abilty in the feild of testing. If you really like testing then you go for it. Here you should keep update IT trends and technologies. otherwise you cant survey.

I recommend you check out http://experitest.com/  - the SeeTest Tool Suite is great- free manual mobile app testing tool and an automation mobile app testing tool that records on real devices, object identification by native/web properties, same tests run on different devices, plug-ins for extending code environment, option for mobile device lab inside your organization (SeeTestCloud). I find their tools reliable, secure and very easy to work with and I understand that they are up-and-coming in the market.

You can get a pretty good overview about testing tools on the market by looking at the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Integrated Software Quality Suites: http://bit.ly/1o5Bbyp

In my opinion you should definitely look at Tosca Testsuite. A very easy to use and powerful testing solution. Tricentis uses a model based approach that drives optimized test coverage, speeds time to automation and reduces maintenance costs and produces higher fidelity test environments through service virtualization and effective test data matched to the test cases

1. Test case design – which dramatically reduces the number of test case needed to provide coverage

2. Model based automation (versus script based or key word driven tools) – to drive automation & ease of maintenance

3. Risk optimization – which extends RBT by determining the least number of tests that are required to achieve the desired level risk coverage

4. Stateful test data design, generation and provisioning (versus static test data generation or use of anonymized production data or the generation of artificial test data using business rules) that gets the test department completely autonomous regarding their test data requirements and necessities

It depends on the goal that you set in testing. Is it for web, desktop or mobile applications?
Try Ubertesters for mobile app testing and Microsoft UIAutomation library  for desktop applications. 

As for web apps it probably could be HTML Validator :)

Hi Manoj,

If you are looking for Open source tool for functional automation tool then go for Selenium IDE which i am using. And there are other tools like TestComplete, Teleric Test Studio and watir.

For preformance testing Apache JMeter(Open Source), Load Runner and Loadster would be better.

To automate your testing without the scripting, just let their cFactory build the code for you....check www.turnkeysolutions.com , they OEM to HP, and are certified to work inside of ALM and QC.  

Speeding test means better Agile integrations, and larger footprint for the % of apps with full regression tests.

Added bonus, they can review an updated set of code and tell you what changed and update your test objects for you - ensuring development doesn't slip one past you.

Automating the automation, is what they call it.  Meaning they automate nearly all of the scripts creation for testing under ALM, reducing test creation time over 80%.

As UI of any application is the major factor of any successfull applications, automation tool for UI testing is gaining more importance these days in software testing industry. There are certain tools for UI test automations such as TestingWhiz, Telerik-TestStudio, Ranorex, TestComplete, etc.

I think this may be vital for our business perception but its totally depend on our performance to which testing we are going to perform. Here i'm going to say Precise Testing Solution is a leading company where they perform all type of testing such as Automation Testing, Performance Testing, Unit Testing etc... Precise professional always use paid as well opensource tool.

As software testing is moving towards automation, most of the software testers as well as QAs are switching themselves from Manual testing to Automated testing. Today, Automated software testing is considered as one of the most trending term in the field of software testing, as it is considered as one of the efficient as well as effective software methodology, making the overall software development/testing life cycle better and taking it to some different level. 

Depending upon the functionalities, there are various good Automation testing tools for software testing. It totally depends upon the need and requirement of the tester, say for example, some needs Web test automation, some needs to automate Database testing or Cross-Browser testing, etc.

Some of the best and widely used Test Automation tools preferred by the testers & QAs, which can offer a long term career are:

1. Selenium,

2. TestingWhiz,

3. Watir,

4. Ranorex,

5. Sahi

Few tools among these like TestingWhiz (http://www.testing-whiz.com/), Selenium (http://www.seleniumhq.org/), etc. provides multi-functionalities, and hence are used by many testers/QAs. Further among these, TestingWhiz is a codeless test automation tool which is easy to learn and implement. You can download its 30 Days Free Trial version and experience the actual automated software testing.

Choosing a suitable test management tool is, of course, an important business decision. Prospective tools need to be well researched and thoroughly evaluated. This checklist for evaluating and buying a capable test management system may be useful to you. http://getzephyr.com/insights/checklist-buying-best-test-management-tool.                                                                                                                 

I personally like Zephyr, as it is one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in the market and it is the top-selling add-on for test management in the Atlassian Marketplace. That said, you might find this information interesting. http://getzephyr.com/insights/using-marketplace-add-ons-get-most-out-you....

In my head I changed the context from "Testing" to "Auto Mechanic". When I did that the question sounded ridiculous.

An auto mechanic has and uses many tools; some daily, some rarely. He knows which tools to use when. Same thing applies to good testing. It's not the knowledge of a specific tool that is going to land you the job, it's the fact that you know your tools and when to use them.

I was once asked in an interview if I was familliar with some really expensive tools. I replied that I had not been fortunate to work for a company rich enough to afford such tools, but I was familliar with free and nearly free tools that did the same things. I got the job.

There are free and nearly free tools for every aspect of software testing. Load, performance, functionality, desktop, mobile, web, security, regression, database, user experience, etc. I suggest you decide which areas of testing you'd like to focus on, and ask Google this:

"Top free software <insert search term> testing tools" and investigate what comes up. If you can learn a record/playback tool, a scripting language and a data comparison tool you'll be well on your way to a successful career. The fact that you learned these *on your own* shows initiative to an employer, and they like that. 

If you didn't learn the exact tool they want you to know, don't worry; you've already demonstrated you can learn how to work with tools. Learning their cool tool is going to be a piece of cake.


BTW, I'll be presenting at STARCanada in October on Sensible Test Automation where I will cover more on this topic: https://starcanada.techwell.com/speakers/jerry-penner

It will vary periodically based on the industry and its growth based requirements. 


For Web Automation - Selenium, QTP

For Desktop - TestComplete

For Performace Testing - JMeter & LoadRunner

For ETL Testing - Informatica

For Mobile Testing - Appium and Cucumber.


You can choose one and proceed with that.

The answer is it all depends. Which tool will have what kind of demand is difficult to say. Companies also look for their own budget, and various other constraints before they decide on a  tool.  If you want more control, and customization try open source tools likeSelenium, Appium etc.   Some tools are designed for testers who are not tech savvy like Eggplant etc.


Rachana Dhabalia's picture

As per my opinion, Apart from selenium Automation Testing Tools is much in demand.

The tool which integrated with popular tools, frameworks, databases and platforms for ensuring seamless automation and test case execution across different environments and conditions. Like,

For Continuous Integration

For Bug Tracking


For Databases


Check it out in details about tools for automation testing.

Hope this clears your view that what is in demand and how you will get?
