As per many software testing experts, code coverage is a good way to identify the untested code. But the percentages aimed do not necessarily contribute to test quality. Such coverage goals encourage poorly designed tests, written with the only intention of meeting system requirements instead of testing the software correctly. We agree that unit testing is important but when aiming at quality its limited. A useful alternative is functional test coverage through test automation, which tracks whether tests execute important values or sequences of values corresponding to software features.
Enterprise Content Management is a kind of revolution which not only makes centrally stored files secure, allows document versioning, and content search, but also provides a provision to manage them easily. The Enterprise Content Management can be on cloud or setup locally. Stored files can be official documents in .xls, .doc, .ppt, .pdf file formats or multimedia files like video clip, audio file, and many more. SharePoint, Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box are some of the central storage repositories. Storing heavy files in bulk is of no use if it delivers at a slow pace. Hence, performance testing is required to verify the functionality under heavy load, session management, and stress capabilities. This time, we avail an opportunity to share our experience with Enterprise Content Management system.
Keep exploring more on performance testing with our quarterly performance testing newsletters.
