Mobile testing is no longer optional. With mobile usage accounting for more than half of online traffic, millions of users see the phone as the end-all, be-all of web connectivity. That includes online browsing, internet gaming and mobile applications, such as your software product.
The customer experience begins when a product works. Functional testing is the way to ensure that happens. Since testing affects the overall SDLC, developers must implement functional testing as quickly and efficiently as possible. That means automation. Specifically, automated functional testing tools.
So which tools should you use, and how?
The vastness of the internet rests on the myriad of individual web applications that make up its practically endless network. The ease of access a user experiences and expects belies the multipoint complexity of the underlying web server, application server and database.
Pitching a new product into this balance between complexity and simplicity requires a profound commitment to software testing.
QASource recently presented the webinar, "How to Get Faster, More Reliable Automated Testing Results Using Continuous Integration" with its partner, froglogic.
In this webinar, Vivek Kumar, Automation Architect and Anand Ramakrishnan, QA Director at QASource, illustrate how to incorporate the Squish GUI tester into your application lifecycle using built-in CI integrations, how to pair Squish with the Jenkins Continuous Integration server to run your test suites automatically and how to enhance your automated testing workflow with a CI-based protocol.
We are in an open-source revolution, an era where engineers and developers around the globe can collaborate and invest their time and money with the goal of producing a reliable product – a software that would further push the world toward digital innovation. Because of this common end goal, open source tools are gaining popularity in developer communities and more are turning toward adopting open source tools to build their product.
Free often comes at a cost. In terms of open-source test management tools, that cost is the quality limitation placed on your QA. Even the savings you seek by choosing a free test management source disappear if a critical bug is missed, your launch date is delayed or you are forced to make expensive fixes later in production.
While the well-established open-source test management tools have survived a decade or more in the software testing industry, their role has been greatly reduced. The simple irony is, it is hard to achieve maximum QA value with a free product.
You may not realize it, but you have all the answers to find the right software testing tools right there in front of you. Even if you are unfamiliar with the names of the dozens of automation and manual testing tools currently available, you already have the information needed to maximize their application.
That is because you know your product better than anyone else. The first and most important step in selecting the right software testing tools is understanding the application at hand. Every project is different, every test environment is unique and every development team has its own strengths and preferences.
QASource recently presented the webinar, "Get The Best Test Automation ROI Through Continuous Testing With SoapUI Pro And TestComplete" with its partner, SmartBear.
In this webinar, Anand Ramakrishnan, QA Director at QASource, highlights the challenges with test automation prior to using SoapUI Pro & TestComplete, how these tools helped overcome these challenges, best practices and value added features with these test automation tools, and who should consider using SoapUI Pro and TestComplete.
What happens when you can’t accurately measure the cost, effectiveness, and progress of a software testing project? A lot of less-than-ideal things. Projects can balloon in cost, creep in scope, fall in quality, or run on for what seems like forever. Without defined metrics attached to each QA project, they can get out of control -- and this scenario is a nightmare for both the product company and their team and the testing provider and their engineers.
