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.

From the first time when we held a gaming console, to today’s smartphones with computing powers, we have seen the technology evolve. Be it for carrying out financial transactions, playing games or watching videos, we spend a lot of time on mobile phones. In fact, the loved ones don’t seem distant anymore with the calls and chats made possible by the string connecting the world: THE INTERNET.
While these facilities have made our lives easier, they may expose our vulnerabilities to the dark web world. To ensure that the users are not subjected to such situations, security testing for mobile applications is necessary. This is what we will talk about in this quarterly newsletter.
Fall is here and so does the season of new releases of mobile operating systems. Google released a new Android version 9, named as Pie and Apple released a new iOS version 12. These new versions of operating systems have come up with improvements in key areas of simplicity, digital wellbeing, intelligence, privacy, and security. In this newsletter, we highlight major features of both operating systems and bring you the latest news of mobile engineering space.
Continuous integration is a practice to test every change of code done in repository. Further, the process of Continuous Deployment of builds help in achieving the Sprint targets on time. Faster builds speed up the whole system and minimize the integration issues.
As a conclusion, we can say that Continuous deployment of builds save time for both Dev and QA teams.
We all know, that the first generation of UI automation tools are ruling the market since last two decades and most commonly the automation engineers manually identify the UI elements to develop the automation test scripts in these tools. The main challenges being faced by most of the automation engineers is the maintenance of test scripts in-case of UI changes and ensuring the maximum test coverage through automation testing. To solve these challenges there is a second generation of automation tools which entered the market, which are smart enough to automatically adapt the test scripts in-case of UI changes and also, develop own test scenarios based upon the flows automated the user. So, our current newsletters will discuss about such tools.
The "Internet Of Things" is leading to a tremendous change in the world by enabling connection of devices, sensors and appliances with huge exchange of data. This requires new learning verticals for the performance testers to evaluate the performance of any IOT eco-system.
We have gathered some useful information which can help you to understand the change in performance testing approach and the areas of learning before commencing performance testing of IOT eco-system.
We continue to support our community with useful tips and knowledge base. Keep exploring more on performance testing with our quarterly performance testing newsletters.
Mobile adoption trends change with every season. Summer of 2018 brings a new change in these trends. In this newsletter, we bring to you the latest figures of market usage of phones, tablets, vendors, operating systems and have compared their usage trends being followed in the markets of the United States versus rest of the World. Software Engineering teams will find this comparison statistics helpful in devising the device testing matrix for planning the releases of their products across the globe.
In this newsletter, we would like to bring the concepts that help you to understand, how one can automate React and Angular JS based web applications.
The growth in cloud platforms has made cloud security testing a very crucial step in security assessment of cloud applications.There are some legal and technical complexities involved in security testing of such applications. Cloud security assessment is a complete evaluation of hosted application as well as platform itself. In this letter we talk about how can we do that along with some highlights from RSA conference and GDPR.
