Software Testing


Definition

Software testing measures the completeness, correctness and quality of the software. Because these can be somewhat subjective depending on who is doing the testing, There have been many attempts to formalize testing requirements.

These organizations have standardized Testing Definitions and processes:

For an in depth discussion about Successful Quality Assurance (note: this site will open in new tab or window)


Functionality

Does the system do what it is required to do.

  • Accuracy
  • Compliance
  • Interoperability
  • Security
  • Suitability



Maintainability

Pertaining to the supportability of the software.

  • Readily Changeable
  • Readability
  • Stability


Portability

The ability to move the application into another environment.

  • Adaptability
  • Installation
  • Upgradable


Reliability

The performance of the system in relation to the required specifications.

  • Recovery
  • System Maturity


Usability

The end users ability to use the system.

  • Ease of Learning the system
  • Intuitiveness
  • Operability


Common Software Testing Definitions

Acceptance Tests - are conducted by the end-user to determine if they accept the software is working as required.

Black Box Testing - is the process of testing an application's functionality. This type of testing usually only requires the tester to know and understand the business requirements and software specifications.

Integration Tests - is designed to expose bugs in connectors and interactions between the integrated components of the system.

Regression Tests - ensure that previously working functionality continues to work appropriately after new functionality is added.

Smoke Test - After a successful build, a smoke test is run to ensure the newly developed code does not break the operational system and that the new code is stable enough to be more thoroughly tested.

System Tests - verify the application meets it's requirements.

Unit Testing - This is usually done by the developer. This is testing the functionality of the change to verify that the change works.

White Box Testing - White Box Testing, WBT, is the practice of testing the internal workings of a software application. This requires the Tester to have a thorough and deep understanding of the software being tested. White-Box Testing addresses the issue, are we building the software Right?


Software Development Lifecycle

How the test cycle works through the SDLC,

Define - This is where the requirement analysis is done. During this phase, Testing would analyze what aspects are testable.

Plan - During the Planning phase, the test strategy and plans are formulated.

Construction - As the developers start writing the new code, the test cases and sceneries are being scripted.

Testing - This is where the testing and test scripts are being run. This in-turn spurs defect finding and reports. Which leads to retesting and more regression tests.

Deployment - Final acceptance.

Black Box Testing

Black Box Testing, BBT, is the process of testing an application's functionality and requirements.

BBT usually only requires the tester to know and understand the business requirements and software functional specifications.

White Box Testing

White Box Testing, WBT, is the practice of testing the internal workings of the software application.

This requires the Tester to have a thorough and deep understanding of the software being tested.
