Test management on Agile period

QA is a hard work, we struggle to keep up with the development rapid pace, like agile or other strategy that creates few releases in a year, we need to track all the product requirements and verify the product in all its development stages. there is always one more test to do, because we need to test the new fixes or defect and on the same hand verify the existing features. so the right test management solution really influence on the quality level of the product. sometimes even a big organization find themselves without this kind of good synchronization and progress tracking.

Postman for API Testing

Postman is a Google Chrome app for interacting with HTTP APIs. It presents you with a friendly GUI for constructing requests and reading responses. The people behind Postman also offer an add-on package called Jetpacks, which includes some automation tools and, most crucially, a Javascript testing library. This post will walk you through an example that uses those testing features. While they won't replace your focused unit tests, they do breathe new life into testing features from outside your applications. This makes it extremely valuable for functional testers or for developers who love to test outside-in.

If you already have Jetpacks, you can follow the example here—be sure to click the import tab in Postman and use the Download from link tab to import the collection.

Test Set Permutations

Test Set permutations is a great feature when you want to test the same test sets and instances multiple times, for example when you are supporting a large number of platforms, languages or even configurations.

In this case you want to be able to take one or a small number of test sets, and create multiple test sets for each of the different combinations you wish to test.

What's the Difference between WCF and Web Services?

Difference between ASP.NET web service and programming WCF services like ASP.NET web services.
A Web Service is programmable application logic accessible via standard Web protocols.
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework for building service-oriented applications.
WCF is a replacement for all earlier web service technologies from Microsoft. It also does a lot more than what is traditionally considered as "web services".

Testing Flex and Flash Applications Using Selenium

Selenium-based Flex testing solutions have been elusive for years. Various Selenium sub-projects have emerged to try to solve the problem of testing Flex components embedded in a Web page from a Selenium context. The problem for Selenium is the black-box nature of the Flex component and APIs. For example, FlexUISelenium embeds a simple proxy into the Flex component from which a Selenium script makes function calls.

A Structured Evaluation for Selecting a Right Automated Testing Tool

One of the challenges in applying software test automation successfully in your projects is to select a most appropriate automated testing tool or framework.  It is a challenging decision as you have many tools to choose from and a number of requirements to satisfy, and automated testing tools may have hidden problems you don’t see or overlook at the time of making decision. Making the right tool choice is crucial to avoiding problems related to the tool that haunt your project execution.

In selecting a tool, you have a set of selection constraints, which can be classified into hard and soft constraints. Hard constraints are fixed and must be satisfied in any case. These constraints include platforms, executing environments, programming languages, and frameworks used to develop the target application under test (AUT).  Soft constraints can be compromised or partially met. Such constraints include schedule, cost, maintainability, usability, level of programming and technical skills required. As these constraints are adjustable, you find it challenging in balancing among them in order to select the best tool given that most of the tools do not satisfy all of these constraints perfectly.

Automating your visual regression testing can be easy with a handy tool

If you have been long in the web UI development niche, you must have already been doing some testing automation or at least approaching this task. It is tempting to let a software do your low-level tasks instead of you but overall efficiency could be a problem. In order to reach an appropriate level of quality for your automated tests, you have to invest much time and efforts into setting up a platform and building scripts. If you skip the proper the preparations, you are likely to have a bunch of bad-structured tests returning false alarms or failing to capture actual bugs. In such a case automation was not helpful for your project at all.

Automatic Testing for PHP

Automation is the best way to insure your code is fulfilling it purpose. make sure all features are functional with automatic testing platform. now you can change your code and verify all other features are intact. 
There are several different types of testing tools or testing frameworks, available for PHP, which use different approaches. All of which are trying to avoid manual testing and the need for large Quality Assurance teams, just to make sure recent changes didn’t break existing functionality.

The BDD library for PHP

Behat is an open source Behavior Driven Development (BDD) framework for PHP inspired by the Ruby Cucumber BDD framework.

What’s BDD? Simple question. BDD is an acronym of: Behavior Driven Development (maybe I prefer to use "Design", instead of "Development"). If we want to speak about BDD, first we need to speak about TDD (Test-Driven Development/Design). Maybe you are familiarized with TDD. TDD is a Software development process. The idea of TDD is simple. When we want to write code, first we write one failing test (Red). Then we write the code to pass this failing test and finally our test passes (Green). After several Red-Green cycles we can Refactor (we only refactor on green). The motto of test-driven development is "Red, Green, Refactor.".

Transformation is the Differentiator for ETL

The transformation is determined by the business needs, and the business needs vary wherever you are.  Your industry determines the kind of data you deal with, and how it will need to be used.  A medical database will need to find details of a patient’s medical records.  A retailer may need to track all individual POS sales, both to watch the financial side, and to observe the impact on inventory.  A voter registration database may need to give reports of people using various filters for marketing or polling.  And each of these systems has different details of what kinds of source data it needs as input and how the output data needs to be queried, all of which need to be checked for data quality before anything gets stored.

Selenium Object Bank and Cucumber JVM

Every QA platform and even every QA Project needs an analysis and engineering operation to suit the best Automation framework for the testing target and development process. You have to plan the exact framework or tools your are going to use with a full understanding on how much effort and time you are going to spend per each technology you are planning to use.
You must understand the test scenarios, page objects, desktop application functionality, business process, etc.

Technical Thoughts: Manual Testing or Automatic Testing

When establishing a QA platform, you have to think about kind of a strategy in order to set plans and direction according to it. 
First thought was always, manual testing vs. automatic testing and how my testing platform will look in 6 months from today.
Here are few of my thoughts regarding Manual testing and Automatic testing
