What is the most used tool today…most will say Selenium.
We still remember when most popular tool was HP WinRunner/QTP/UFT, but with the current trend of moving applications into the web interface, more and more are moving to cost-free opensource, multi-languages support - Selenium
Of course that it is hard to compare Selenium against UFT, since the first is focusing on web testing only while the other is an overall desktop testing tool.
Selenium works with many browsers, operating systems, programming languages, and testing frameworks. From Firefox to JUnit, we've got you covered.
Here are some of the Browsers, OS, and drivers that already were created.

HOW SHOULD YOU TEST CLOUD BASED APPLICATIONS ?
Cloud testing is a form of software testing in which web applications use cloud computing environments (a "cloud") to simulate real-world user traffic.
IT industry has been at the center of a virtual evolution in the form of cloud computing. In the cloud computing model, everything is viewed “As a Service.” The main idea originated from resource sharing, with availability and allocation being on demand via the Internet. It gives enterprises the capability of storing data in third-party data centers, maximizes the effectiveness of shared resources and reduces overall cost of operation. Besides, “the cloud” also helps enterprises get their apps up and running faster. May be this is why cloud vendors are experiencing around 60% of growth per year.
Working on cloud, however, is not just about creating and deploying apps, but also passing them through rigorous tests to ensure optimum quality. And Cloud testing services play a pivotal role in automating and standardizing these testing processes. Let’s understand the concept of cloud-testing better.

Appium is a very promising tool when it comes to mobile automation. I have given it a try for about 6 months when I was working on a mobile testing framework for my company. Appium comes in many client bindings (Java, C#, Python and Ruby) which offer a lot of features, but they lack the ability to start the server in an automated way which means that it has to be done manually.
In order to make running mobile test cases a fully automated process, I had to automate starting and stopping the Appium server along with the correct server arguments.

MANAGEMENT MODULE - The management module includes the following sub modules:-
The main advantage of a framework of assumptions, concepts and tools that provide support for automated software testing is the low cost for maintenance. If there is change to any test case then only the test case file needs to be updated and the driver Script and startup script will remain the same. Ideally, there is no need to update the scripts in case of changes to the application.
Choosing the right framework/scripting technique helps in maintaining lower costs. The costs associated with test scripting are due to development and maintenance efforts. The approach of scripting used during test automation has effect on costs.

What is API testing ?
The API Testing is performed for the application, which has a collection of API that must be tested. API calls verify functionality and expose failure of application.
API testing is strongly connected with Back-end/Database testing, you may have brief knowledge of SQL queries. (That would be an advantage )
This article will present you how to test the API with Postman application.
ALM is the product lifecycle management (governance, development, and maintenance) of the software product under development. It encompasses requirements management, software architecture,computer programming, software testing, software maintenance, change management, continuous integration, project management, and release management.
Today's need is to present the real-time collaboration, its progress and all the resources in hand, which means integrating to every resource and information available and needed. The ALM products are mainiating and developing their integration availability on daily basis, integration with in-house tools, external tools and services and third party APIs.
