A Small Comparison between SoapUI and SOAtest

Understanding this means that it can contain a lot of sub objective testing, like API Testing, Web Services Testing, WSDL testing, Soap Testing...and many more. if its part of the communication or data transfer between components than it is part of the SOA testing.

JMeter response assertions: How to know what to validate in an HTTP response request

For those of us who work with JMeter and performance tests, we know the importance of adding validations to all HTTP Requests. Validations are not just a way to confirm that the server is responding as expected, but they also serve to verify that the script we are developing is acting as it should, meaning, it is simulating the user behavior as it was designed.

Test Automation Survey 2016

Most organizations use more than one automation tool; in most cases it could reach three or even four. When multiple automation tools are required, it may indicate on the application’s complexity, variety of supported platforms (iOS, Android, WEB, desktop, etc.) or simply that none of the existing frameworks provide the organization’s needs of an automation framework at the moment.

Test Automation needs (partial list)

Record & Playback is the tool ability to record your actions on desktop, web, application, mobile, etc. , translate them into scripts or any other visual transaction method, and play them by request.
this feature is implemented differently in each testing tool, and should be analyzed according to the SUT features and GUI. every testing tool have a different way to capture the visual object, some are even very unique. If you are using a state-of-the-art technology, and you are not sure how well the testing tool capture and record this object, than this is a test which you cannot miss.

Scriptless automation – Worksoft Certify

The only action that users take when creating automation in Worksoft is to identify the fields used to enter data or user actions, e.g., a checkbox. Note that this is not like the mainstream record and playback technology. The result of such ‘recording’ is a set of steps. Each step has a ‘narrative’. [for example: Input the value ‘OR’ into the order type CtextField]. Note that this is presented in language which can be understood by a non-technical business user.

Non Functional Testing

Non-functional testing is the testing of a software application or system for its non-functional requirements: the way a system operates, rather than specific behaviors of that system.
This is contrast to functional testing, which tests against functional requirements that describe the functions of a system and its components.
The names of many non-functional tests are often used interchangeably because of the overlap in scope between various non-functional requirements. For example, software performance is a broad term that includes many specific requirements like reliability and scalability.

Non-functional testing includes: Baseline testing, Compliance testing, Documentation testing, Endurance testing, Load testing, Localization testing and Internationalization testing, Performance testing, Recovery testing, Resilience testing, Security testing, Scalability testing, Stress testing, Usability testing, Volume testing.

What are Differences between Source Code Analysis vs Static Application Security Testing(SAST)?

Source code analysis tools are designed to analyze source code and/or compiled version of code in order to help find security flaws. Ideally, such tools would automatically find security flaws with such a high degree of confidence that what's found is indeed a flaw. However, this is beyond the state of the art for many types of application security flaws. Thus, such tools frequently serve as aids for an analyst to help them zero in on security relevant portions of code so they can find flaws more efficiently, rather than a tool that just automatically finds flaws.

Some tools are starting to move into the IDE. For the types of problems that can be detected during the software development phase itself, this is a powerful phase within the development life cycle to employ such tools, as it provides immediate feedback to the developer on issues they might be introducing into the code during code development itself. This immediate feedback is very useful, especially when compared to finding vulnerabilities much later in the development cycle.

Agile Designer Review: The Requirements Gap

It’s really quite neat. On the surface it looks pretty much like Visio, in the sense that you build a flow diagram of the process to be developed. However, Agile Designer goes considerably further. Firstly, once the process flow has been defined, you can automatically generate all the paths through the tree, whether these are successful or failed paths. Next, you can generate test cases for each of these paths.

Security Testing on Web Applications

When doing functional testing, you are trying to prove that a feature works for an end-user – it does what they expect, and does not hinder them from completing their tasks.
On functional testing you are focusing on features which are used more often, used by more users or considered to be most important but On security testing, your ‘end-user’ is now an attacker trying to break the application.
The goal of your testing is to prove that a specific attack scenario does not succeed, for any attack scenario. A significant difficulty here is that proving that a feature works is much easier than proving that a specific feature cannot be hacked by any method.
You cannot obtain the 'most likely' scenario since the potential attacker will anything they like to perform a successful attack

Some people think regression testing isn't necessary. They're wrong

Firstly, it is absolutely necessary to regression test those areas of the application that are not being changed. Just because the code isn’t changing, it doesn’t mean that a change elsewhere is not going to impact it. Of course, a proper impact analysis of a change should highlight other areas of the application that may be affected. However, as we all know, things get missed and the first time you know about it is when something goes wrong in production and impacts your ability to do business.

How To Plan Test Case Automation with Development

The goal of this post is to show a possible way of organizing automation based on the development plan in order to automate tests as soon as possible, without losing sight of manual testing. The functionalities to be automated will have to be already tested manually prior to beginning.

External and Internal Penetration Testing

penetration test, or a pentest, is a simulation of a hacker attack on a network, system, application or website. It is used to discover existing vulnerabilities and weaknesses before hackers find and exploit them.

The Testing Swing

Over the past few years, my team has moved from waterfall process to agile and now DevOps.

For organizations deploying new software in production several times a day, one of the most challenging transformation issue is the need to revolutionize testing. In an era of continuous deployment and updates, there’s no time to have QA teams identify a problem and kick it back to the developers. So times are gone when you were testing you app after the development and before going in production.

PROPOSED ALGORITHM WITH RESULT ANALYSIS

Business users need to know what exist in the data warehouse, the following objectives are-

  • How to examine the contents using analysis tools.
  • How to present the results of such analysis.
  • Prepared tool -Time Performance Analyzer (TPA).
  • Testing Time Performance Analyzer (TPA) tool.
Post date: 16-01-07

PROBLEM AND MOTIVATION STATEMENT

How to time comparing the contents using Time Performance Analyzer tool? Figure of data warehouse can be characterized as those where architecture for the database and piece of information as table and figure, and data definition and manipulation are represented by figure and table oriented operations.
One of the motivations towards this paper is to provide a less time taking mechanism to measure the effectiveness of figure’s comparison operations.

Time Performance Analyzer Tool: Hypothetical Testing Approach

In the present scenario, a company has multiple departments of data warehouses. Data warehouse stores all information of each product. Searching and comparing the records of any organization is a very difficult task and time taking process if a warehouse is too long as, in the database, this process consumes excessive computing process. In this paper, our proposed approach using Time Performance analyzer Tool to designing and compare their data warehouse’ contents based on time. This tool is helped to design, analyze and compares multiple databases in the respect of different records and time-consuming process. For, this we have a hypothesis, fifteen tables as a sample size and performed t-test in a particular region.

Our tool will help to increase the productivity, efficiency and reduces access time of multiple data warehouses.

eggPlant Performance vs. Apache JMeter

Not only do you have to download a large number of plugins before you even get started, you introduce a dependency with each one you choose to use. And who is responsible for each of these plugins? It may as well be nobody. There is no guarantee that the original author is in any way committed to maintaining the plugin, let alone providing quality documentation or some means of contact if there is ever any issue with it. You don’t want to find half your plugins break each time you choose to upgrade JMeter (which, incidentally, is JMeter’s #1 Best Practice suggestion).

Performance Testing - Types and Tools

QA plan performance tests, in most cases they mean type of Load Testing, but this is not the only option, here is few samples of testing types that can be generated in order to get the performance analyzing, that our application needs.

BTW, did you know that Stress testing (sometimes called torture testing) is a form of deliberately intense or thorough testing used to determine the stability of a given system or entity...

Integrate Cucumber with Jenkins

Why do we need BDD, Highest advantage that it improves communication between Developers, Testers and the product owners and over a period of time we end up having a large suite of tests that need to be run very often.

To have tests running regularly, it is key that we integrate test suite execution with our CI tool chain.

Model Based Testing

Model Based Testing or MBT, is a testing flow and design. Models can be used to represent the desired behavior of a System Under Test (SUT), or to represent testing strategies and a test environment.

A model describing a SUT is usually an abstract, partial presentation of the SUT's desired behavior. Test cases derived from such a model are functional tests on the same level of abstraction as the model.

review lists of current MBT tools on site and other known.

Automate Mobile native application

Run the program and enjoy the native test automation.

This is just a small program just to make sure everything is up and running.

I took very basic application to automate Native application using Appium but you can take any application and perform the same step.

In next article I will cover how you can perform other activity on application using xpath and other ways.

If you liked this article then please share with your friends or team.
