Updates on QA Testing Tools

Loadster

Introduction

Loadster is a cloud-hybrid solution for distributed load testing of web applications, web services, and static websites from either side of the firewall. Records test scripts in an ordinary web browser and tweak them in the graphical script editor. Then, build test scenarios to simulate hundreds or even thousands of concurrent virtual users executing the scripts. Run the test and watch the live dashboard to see how the application is performing. Once finished, export the results to an HTML report with graphs and tables. This helps to benchmark the application's performance, find problem areas, and validate the application is production-ready.

Avoid Common Testing Metric Pitfalls

Avoid Testing Pitfalls

Some QA leaders have found that their collected data doesn't always effectively address the questions they have. This may occur for a variety of reasons, but a likely culprit is a lack of context. Testing metrics should not be considered in a vacuum. To get the best results from these assets, QA management must consider numerous measurements and the implications they offer as an entire unit.

The advantages of BDD and BDT

Behavior-driven development (BDD) is an agile testing methodology. BDT - Behavior driven testing, usally come after /during BDD (Behavior Driven development) but is not a must, it can be organized with traditional testing as well.

BDD is a process of development based on test-driven development (TDD). BDD blends main standards of test-driven development and ideas from domain-driven design and object-oriented analysis to provide software developers and business analysts with shared tools and a shared process to collaborate on software development.

Mobile testing with Espresso, Google testing tool.

Running tests on real Android devices is highly time consuming and expensive due to the large number and variety of such devices. A solution is to execute tests on an emulator, a controllable environment supporting multiple OS versions, screen sizes and memory constraints. This approach would catch most code bugs, the rest of them being left to real device testing and human testers.

Introduction to Agile Software Development Methods

The iterative approach over the traditional approach

With all the Agile methods out there, how does someone with traditional waterfall or v-model experience begin to understand each? Which methods are truly Agile and which are not? What are the defining characteristics of each Agile method, as well as those not quite so Agile? What are the benefits of using eachAgile method and what are some of the drawbacks? This article attempts to answer these questions in a concise and simple way and offer a launch pad for those who would like to know more.

Cucumber

Introduction

Cucumber is a BDD testing tool and Framework. This means that the “tests” (plain text feature descriptions with scenarios) are typically written before anything else and verified by business analysts, domain experts, etc. non technical stakeholders. The production code is then written outside-in, to make the stories pass. Cucumber itself is written in Ruby, but it can be used to “test” code written in Ruby or other languages including but not limited to Java, C# and Python. Cucumber only requires minimal use of Ruby programming and Ruby is easy, so don’t be afraid even if the code you’re developing in is not Ruby.
