Uplatz offers in-depth and extensive training on Software Testing. This is video-based online course (self-paced training).
Software testing is the process of verifying and validating that a software or application is error free, meets the technical requirements as specified by its design, and meets the user requirements effectively and efficiently handling all the exceptional and boundary cases.
The process of software testing aims at not only identifying faults in the existing software but also at finding measures to improve the software in terms of efficiency, accuracy and usability. Software testing mainly aims at measuring specification, functionality and performance of a software program or application.
Software Testing can be broadly classified into two types:
1) Manual Testing: Manual testing includes testing a software manually, i.e., without using any automated tool or any script. In this type, the tester takes over the role of an end-user and tests the software to identify any unexpected behavior or bug. There are different stages for manual testing such as unit testing, integration testing, system testing, and user acceptance testing. Testers use test plans, test cases, or test scenarios to test a software to ensure the completeness of testing. Manual testing also includes exploratory testing, as testers explore the software to identify errors in it.
2) Automation Testing: Automation testing, which is also known as Test Automation, is when the tester writes scripts and uses another software to test the product. This process involves automation of a manual process. Automation Testing is used to re-run the test scenarios that were performed manually, quickly, and repeatedly.
