Introduction to Software Testing

Software Testing is important as it uncovers a defect before it is delivered to the customer ensuring the quality of software. So that the defects or bugs can be identified in the early stages of development; as later the stage in which bug is identified, more is the cost to rectify it.

In this article we are going to discuss about the following:
  •  What is Software testing?
  •  Types of software testing?
  •  What is Manual testing?
  •  Types of manual testing?
  •  How to Perform Manual testing?
  •  Misconception about Manual Testing
What is Software testing?
  • Software testing is conduct to verify the application is working correctly or not.
  • Testing is conduct to find the defect in application .
  • To validate the application is working as per customer requirement or not.
Types of software testing?

Manual testing: Human performs the tests step by step, without test scripts. 
Automated testing: Tests are executed automatically via test automation frameworks, along with other tools and software.

What is Manual testing?
  • Manual Testing is a process of finding out the defects, bugs in a software program.  
  • A tester performs the end-user role and verifies if all the features are working properly or not. 
  • The Tester performs the tests step by step manually.
  • By Conducting the testing we can assess the quality of the application.
Types of manual testing?
  • Unit Testing
  • Integration Testing
  • Black Box Testing
  • White Box Testing
  • System Testing
  • Acceptance Testing
How to Perform Manual testing?
  •  Understand the requirements from the software requirement specification document.
  •  Identify the scenario and create a clear test plan. 
  •  Design test cases that cover all the requirements defined in the document.
  •  Get test cases reviewed by the QA lead and update it based on reviews.
  •  Execute test cases and detect any bugs
  •  Report the defect to developer and track the status.
  •  Once bugs are fixed, again execute the failing test cases to verify they pass.
Misconception about Manual Testing.
  •  Myth #1: Anyone can do manual testing.
  •  Myth #2: Testing is just verifying the app from the UI
  •  Myth #3: Testing ensures 100% defect-free product.
  •  Myth #4: Automated testing is more powerful than manual testing.
  •  Myth #5: Manual testing is non-technical and easy.
