Quality Assurance Services | Best QA team for Hire

Software testing is often underrated when it comes to tight deadlines and deliverables. Developers try to compromise in software testing phases, and this leads to more confusion and client dissatisfaction. A professional software developer is the one who remains calm an ensures that the developed solutions go through proper checks and trouble shooting well before the software is due to be delivered or deployed. There are situations when the software development companies do not have an in-house testing team or lack certain tools and resources. In this case, they use third party software testing companies to complete the process.

Software Testing-All you need to know about

Software testing, we all know is a mandatory process that needs to be carried out during, after and beyond the development of any software solution. It helps identify major and minor glitches. Early and regular identification, can help programmers ensure that the finished product is error free. Imagine, developing a software and deploying it without any testing or quality checks? What would be the result? The answers could be endless and rolling out a software this way could jeopardize an entire software development organization.

The lack of proper and robust software testing is a major problem facing development companies. This can be due to many reasons. So when integrating a successful testing processes into software development, a development company should keep a few things in mind.

What software testing actually means

Verifying whether software meets the expected parameters. It is not a superficial but an in-depth process
A healthy process involves investigating the product to find any information that is of value to the stakeholders.
Trying to identify problems before software is released to stakeholders
An integral step in software development that is often underrated is constant communication with stakeholders and collaboration to improve the product
It is important to keep these points in mind when searching for a good software testing partner. Getting software testing done by a third-party vendor is not an easy task because it can be hard to determine if a company will be a good partner or a bad one. Your knowledge of proper testing and quality assurance processes comes into play here.

How to excel in manual quality testing

Proper Organization
Organization is an important step not only in testing but other processes too. When we talk about manual testing, it becomes necessary to create an organized structure to store all the relevant details of the project so that no integral information is lost or missed. The stored information and communication details are helpful when creating a successful testing strategy and revisiting information exchanged earlier.

Writing detailed bug reports
Bug reports submitted by the tester are of the utmost importance because these reports contain reports of genuine issue in the application. A detailed report is a great benefit to developers because they can just go through it and see what needs to be done next. If the bug report is not clear or it is incomplete, it creates confusion and may lead to misunderstandings or delayed delivery dates.

Clarity in test cases
The optimal size for a test case is 3 to 8 steps. Clarity in test cases can determine the efficiency in your testing tasks. Just like a detailed bug report is important similarly clear and precise test cases are required to carry out and effective testing process. Test cases should not be very long, the longer the test case the trickier it will be for the developer to work through it.

Besides clear case studies and complete bug reports, the tester must have ability to be focused and stay positive while testing the software application. These features enhance the testing process and make it more reliable.

Tools used for robust software testing

Where manual testing is considered a priority in a software development process, automated testing aids the process and makes it more effective.

Good testing tools:

1. Selenium
Selenium is an automated testing tool that runs on various OS systems like Linux, Windows, and iOS. It is a testing framework to perform web application testing.

But it is a critical step and should be carried out by any reliable team.

How to Do API Testing?

Nowadays API testing is an integral part of testing. There are a lot of tools like postman, insomnia, etc. There are many articles that ask what is API, What is API testing, but the problem is How to do API testing? What I need to validate.

Note: In this article, I am going to use postman assertions for all the examples since it is the most popular tool. But this article is not intended only for the postman tool.

Let’s directly jump to the topic.

Let’s consider you have an API endpoint example http://dzone.com/getuserDetails/{{username}} when you send the get request to that URL it returns the JSON response.

My API endpoint is http://dzone.com/getuserDetails/{{username}}

The response is in JSON format like below

JSON

{
  "jobTitle": "string",
  "userid": "string",
  "phoneNumber": "string",
  "password": "string",
  "email": "user@example.com",
  "firstName": "string",
  "lastName": "string",
  "userName": "string",
  "country": "string",
  "region": "string",
  "city": "string",
  "department": "string",
  "userType": 0
}

In the JSON we can see there are properties and associated values.

Now, For example, if we need details of the user with the username ‘ganeshhegde’ we need to send a **GET **request to **http://dzone.com/getuserDetails/ganeshhegde **

dzone.com

Now there are two scenarios.

1. Valid Usecase: User is available in the database and it returns user details with status code 200

2. Invalid Usecase: User is Unavailable/Invalid user in this case it returns status with code 404 with not found message.

Where To Learn Test Programming — July 2020 Edition

What do you do when you have lots of free time on your hands? Why not learn test programming strategies and approaches?

When you’re looking for places to learn test programming, Test Automation University has you covered. From API testing through visual validation, you can hone your skills and learn new approaches on TAU.

We introduced five new TAU courses from April through June, and each of them can help you expand your knowledge, learn a new approach, and improve your craft as a test automation engineer. They are:

These courses add to the other three courses we introduced in January through March 2020:

  • IntelliJ for Test Automation Engineers (3 hrs 41 min)
  • Cucumber with JavaScript (1 hr 22 min)
  • Python Programming (2 hrs)

Each of these courses can give you a new set of skills.

Let’s look at each in a little detail.

Mobile Automation With Appium in JavaScript

Orane Findley teaches Mobile Automation with Appium in JavaScript. Orane walks through all the basics of Appium, starting with what it is and where it runs.

javascript

“Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, web, and hybrid applications on different platforms.”

In the introduction, Orane describes the course parts:

  • Setup and Dependencies — installing Appium and setting up your first project
  • Working with elements by finding them, sending values, clicking, and submitting
  • Creating sessions, changing screen orientations, and taking screenshots
  • Timing, including TimeOuts and Implicit Waits
  • Collecting attributes and data from an element
  • Selecting and using element states
  • Reviewing everything to make it all make sense

The first chapter, broken into five parts, gets your system ready for the rest of the course. You’ll download and install a Java Developer Kit, a stable version of Node.js, Android Studio and Emulator (for a mobile device emulator), Visual Studio Code for an IDE, Appium Server, and a sample Appium Android Package Kit. If you get into trouble, you can use the Test Automation University Slack channel to get help from Orane. Each subchapter contains the links to get to the proper software. Finally, Orane has you customize your configuration for the course project.

Chapter 2 deals with elements and screen interactions for your app. You can find elements on the page, interact with those elements, and scroll the page to make other elements visible. Orane breaks the chapter into three distinct subchapters so you can become competent with each part of finding, scrolling, and interacting with the app. The quiz comes at the end of the third subchapter.

The remaining chapters each deal with specific bullets listed above: sessions and screen capture, timing, element attributes, and using element states. The final summary chapter ensures you have internalized the key takeaways from the course. Each of these chapters includes its quiz.

When you complete this course successfully, you will have both a certificate of completion and the code infrastructure available on your system to start testing mobile apps using Appium.

Selenium WebDriver With Python

Andrew Knight, who blogs as The Automation Panda, teaches the course on Selenium WebDriver with Python. As Andrew points out, Python has become a popular language for test automation. If you don’t know Python at all, he points you to Jess Ingrassellino’s great course, Python for Test Programming, also on Test Automation University.

Se

In the first chapter, Andrew has you write your first test. Not in Python, but Gherkin. If you have never used Gherkin syntax, it helps you structure your tests in pseudocode that you can translate into any language of your choice. Andrew points out that it’s important to write your test steps before you write test code — and Gherkin makes this process straightforward.

first test case

The second chapter goes through setting up a pytest, the test framework Andrew uses. He assumes you already have Python 3.8 installed. Depending on your machine, you may need to do some work (Macs come with Python 2.7.16 installed, which is old and won’t work. Andrew also goes through the pip package manager to install pipenv. He gives you a GitHub link to his test code for the project. And, finally, he creates a test using the Gherkin codes as comments to show you how a test runs in pytest.

In the third chapter, you set up Selenium Webdriver to work with specific browsers, then create your test fixture in the pytest. Andrew reminds you to download the appropriate browser driver for the browser you want to test — for example, chromedriver to drive Chrome and geckodriver to drive Firefox. Once you use pipenv to install Selenium, you begin your test fixture. One thing to remember is to call an explicit quit for your webdriver after a test.

Chapter 4 goes through page objects, and how you abstract page object details to simplify your test structure. Chapter 5 goes through element locator structures and how to use these in Python. And, in Chapter 6, Andrew goes through some common webdriver calls and how to use them in your tests. These first six chapters cover the basics of testing with Python and Selenium.

Now that you have the basics down, the final three chapters review some advanced ideas: testing with multiple browsers, handling race conditions, and running your tests in parallel. This course gives you specific skills around Python and Selenium on top of what you can get from the Python for Test Programming course.
