Do You Know!?

There are plenty of softwares in the market for website development. But do you know there 6 major methodologies available for software testing.

Testing is the most important part of any software development. It is very essential to have a testing plan to ensure that the product delivered is stable and is delivered in a predictable timeline as poor testing methodologies leads to unpredictable development times and also unstable products.

These mechanisms start from testing very small piece of code to end up by testing the whole application functionality.

Here are the 6 major methodologies.

1) Unit Tests: One of the most basic testing mechanism at developer level. This covers very narrow but well defined scope. We can isolate the code from any outside interaction. Very small unit of functionality is focused in unit test. They cover the interaction of the code with the memory only and do not cover any interaction with network, which is even hard coded into the code while testing.

However, we need to have a look that when these units are combined, they work in a cohesive manner which leads us to further types of tests.

2) Integration Tests: At the developer level integration test comes as the second level test. Here they provide you with a mechanism to test the interoperation of smaller units which involve testing the modules to access network, file systems and many more. Often when the units are wired together there are some errors or issues. May be unit A is working perfectly but unit B might have some bugs or errors. These issues arise in the time of integration tests.

3) Functional Tests: For the correctness of the output functional tests are performed with respect to the input. Here, more focus is given on the final output delivery not on the intermediate values.

4) Smoke Tests: Basically, smoke tests analogy has come from the electronics where a mistake means the big problem which may even leads to smoke. After the functional test, a simple test is performed from the start just after a fresh installation and with entering the newer input values. Fortunately, there is no smoke in software industry but of course crashes are there to cause a trouble for coders.

5) Regression Tests: Whenever complex bugs are patched in any of the system, which typically affect the core areas of the system, the test is used to re-test all the modules of the system.

6) Acceptance Tests: This is the final level of test planning. Each and every feature is being cross checked by the testing team from the user’s perspective and then the feature is marked as accepted or rejected. The result of these tests is very subjective in nature and it takes a while to figure out the main issue or problem in the code.

Hope you will also hire an app design agency to avoid such bug and to lead in the online market today.
